publishing poetry only

Thank you Matt Verbonac and Angus for the photograph.

When the soft smell
of honey
lingers on your fingertips,
and a silky breeze
flutters through the tall grasses,
dancing with them gently,
and the pines suddenly hush
in this adolescent sunlight,
and the birds fall silent
with bated breath,
watching your lips
the small of my back,
then I will blossom.
