When you held the weight and the shape,
Felt warmth as you flexed your grip
then what next?
You breathed deeper - expanded your lungs blue,
Bending purples and oranges of mind and body.
Knees bent too so that you could reach further. . .
That's when you smelled the spice and citrus -
The earth touched by fingers sliding around curves -
Nostrils wide to know more through these scents -
Black shirt slipped from shoulder dropping back,
Neck extending, joining, dark, disappearing -
Teeth tremble biting on lower lip and finger tips-
Silent asking, followed by tongue,
Tasting for a way into your body - then concluding -
Eyes opening onto a moment without past or future.
