I flipped through the pages of him
swimming words of liquid language
floating on this tide I saw myself
he had seen my touch in a way
that few men do, but he knew it
it warmed and chipped at him
being held at arms length
with fingertips begging begging
it was there in letters flow that
I saw a spring gushing from rock
where he had touched in miracle of joy
the pain in longing deeper than yellow fire
the pulling, the pushing of a heart
and it was a sigh breathing freely
this started out so innocently
like a wind tapping at windows to
howling and moaning outside the house
and I am here and I am there
in the shadows touching his heart

You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Helen, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

I enjoyed the howling and moaning wind imagery, the calling and pleading thoughts.

helen,
You know you have a way that some how gets deep inside of me that I just can't resist. Can I start a fan club?

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
