TAG AND HIDE AND SEEK
16 January 2012

Barefoot, you Tarzan, me Jane,
swinging from tree to tree,
playing tag with each other,
our laughter duets
blending with the birdsong of the forest,
you jump into the river
and I hear the splash,
but miss seeing you
swimming under water
and creeping out round the river bend.
I scale down the tree like a monkey
and, smiling, call your name.
You throw a stone into a bush
to divert my eyes,
and creep up behind me.
A twig snaps and I turn
and melt into
your safe, strong-branch arms,
your electrifying fusing kiss,
your secret soul.

Owl

and melt into
your safe, strong-branch arms,
your electrifying fusing kiss,
your secret soul.


This is so joyful that I feel like skipping along this airy path of laughter and bliss, dear Owl.

And the conclusion is just pure nectar.
