still


there's a temptation
to fall inside
your fingers
if only to feel them
holding my face

I love the mutuality of this, Steven! To love, and love being loved. And the snow and yarrow (?) illustrate your lines scrumptiously.

now that's romantic in the best poetic sense - wouldn't it be amazing to have a reverence like that returned!

it is inside the mutuality of love of person or nature or god where the poignancy resides. this is quiet beautiful, steven.

That is what is so good about my dog- I can fall into him- we feel each other and there are no expectations or misreading of just wanting to be close.

I love all the natural connections.
It's so tactile and appealing. Thanks for sharing, Steven
