you speak low,

catching the evening breeze on your breath

as it passes my ear

caressing my hair in your eyes.


the dusk

takes its toll upon your lips as they whisper my name,

taking root upon mine,

the leaves giving off their last light

behind us.


a shudder upon the breeze.

      Mesmerizing poem Audrey. Glad I happened upon it since I didn't get notice of it. Maybe I will later though.
