tied to solidarity, sidewalk spark and spoon
a quad of legless layered love

you and i, our senses sinking
curbside cuddle mental mutuality

sovereign shabby we casually
continue, dexterous dynamite

holding stars and riding comets
we percolate in liquid infinite

bridge beneath, passionate pose
arms bound beautiful, smile so sweet

one sitting, silent and sure
sidewalk star gazing sale

less than

committed to recovery she suddenly stopped shifting, sanctioning the silence to occupy all there was. pushing the quiet up hill, little effort was required on her part. more so her eyes took in the totality of trust and the weight floated as if the waters held the whole.

opening the red polka dot umbrella brought relief from the hot sun mercilessly shining through the open window. sidetracked by the heat she could focus, the stillness inside, as a soft vibrating purr waiting for recognition, for a touch, a caress.

he was talking again simply noted by the movement of his hands. observing  his hands became greater than his words beckoning for understanding, falling flat on the floor full of emptiness unattached to meaning, unsubstantiated topics floating lightly on top of fluent waters.

never wanting to be noticed, it was his little pinkie on his left hand. slightly bent an expression with wings wanting to fly. brilliant blue topaz catching a glint of sunlight, surrounded by a gold band. was he aware of the connection to the blue topaz, how the shine would bring all the dreams home to those who held inherent harmony.

immutable his voice caught on a breeze from an opened door. contracting as an accordian playing with romantic relish in a dance of playful passion.  musical notes soon filled the room with gaiety and laughter. eyes waxed with wanting it appeared progression was unstoppable and the whole would soon move on to a distinct farther. reality released and paused, a strange hush of comprehension spread like softened butter.

datelessly changed by survival he came to the end, the confines of boundaries tied to his heel. the small quick applause he graciously acknowledged and with little hesitation he left the podium.

snow white’s steak a poivre

blissfully imperfect, dinner continued to cook slowly. wearing a perfectly exiguous apple red dress i told the questionably gifted mirror to keep the thoughtless cynical comments to himself. turning my back, his reply a silly safe snicker he thoroughly enjoyed. rather than continue i searched in silence for the way out of a strange celestial conversation. propelled forward on a waterless flood, i placed my rushing heart on the sleeveless red dress and let the waterfall of love answer the arid waiting door.

Poefusion #16: Create a poem using Emily Dickinson’s Bring me the sunset in a cup as a starting point

overflowing heart

bring me the sunset in a cup
measured overflowing
bubbling bright red orange

entirely encompassing
eternal everlasting
instanteous felicity

surrounded by surreality
intimate obscured soiree
beneath benign books
lettered pages explicate open

present where we are
without delay
words written stained red ink
