My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

Ebb and Flow

Like a line in the sand                          

You draw me to you…

Each grain of tender energy

Leaves trails

Along the valleys

of breath intertwined

then, exhaled

To settle

Between the ebb and flow

of the gentle, knowing tide

that binds us

  7. “Each grain of tender energy…”

    That is a cool way to look at that, Collen. Nice one!
    Scientifically true, with a touch of femininity.
