An Ode to S. on Valentine's Day

| filed under: , , , , , ,

©1995 Chris Abraham

You are colourful like the Blossom.
I saw you once after the shower,
Rubbing lotion into your skin,
Lightly powdering that bright
Radiant pink, like afterglow.

In sleep, you home in on my body heat,
Like open petals following the Sun
Along its trustworthy path.
Pressing towards the warmth,
Burrowing into the secure space.

This is a day to worship the warmth,
The colour, the place, the space -- all ours!
Saint Valentine's day, a day to venerate
That which we covet: Our desire, Our love -- 
To be together again -- for me to come home!
