Skin to Skin
I might remember
skin to skin
and back again
of dark days
folded in upon itself
amongst the tangles
like liquid silk
along each softened ridge
Outstanding. Lush and beautiful and blue. You know how much I love blue.

It’s been too long since I visited. My Little Writer hiatus lasted a while… Colleen, this was a stunner. I loved your descriptions and could almost feel the silkiness of those sheets! Sigh.
(and thanks for popping over to see me… I appreciate your comments!)

Dreamy and longing … I like the use of Egyptian cotton as a way to describe tenderness … Thank you for visiting me! All the best!

I enjoyed your poetry and your choices of photo are great, do you take them?
And also to hear you read, a very nice addition.
Thank you very much for adding me to your blog roll.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I am finding the reading part a little awkward but hopefully I will get used to it as I know I appreciate listening to other’s readings. Some photos are mine (such as the header picture) but most are not.

Love this sequence from the poem especially
amongst the tangles
So effective, especially ‘eggshell blue’ which is such a lovely shade to use in the poem
