by Carl Josehart

to greet
a hug so deep
I swim in your warm depth
toward its loving soul

then a kiss
gentle and firm
on the lips
warm opalescent waves wash over me
bobbing helplessly on tides of emotion
rhythmic reminders
I am safe
and known

to come and go
a torture so intimate
I recoil my tainted lips
from your welcoming shores

then a touch
genuine and caring
on the cheek
warm open ways plant tender fruits
ripening friendship
you are consolation
and hope

You may also appreciate Gleanings
