Fresh and cool it entered
then swayed and left,
or seemed to,
me and you,
in the sun.
But the heat that kissed the space just above my skin
told me the truth
I didn’t know until then.
Time entered and sighed and I listened so hard,
I pressed my ear against the
tight spot in my heart.
Feathers ruffled, a moment shuffled,
the breeze stung my eyes and made me cry (it didn’t mean to).
Breath filled me and called me and kissed me
on the inside.
Love shifted and swayed and seemed to say,
a word that only
the tight spot,
deep in my heart needed to hear.
