lover…

This is a new series I’ve begun for my husband. 😉

note to my lover …

lover, I saw how the sun rose on your face
this morning
as you slept
the taste of the words we made together
still sweet on my tongue
not dampened at all
by the child wedged between us
his midnight visit
stealthy
his arms and legs branched
across our backs
warm limbs
of this familiar tree
roots deep
in the kicked off sheets
allowing the breeze
which must be
what woke me
