Since You Asked

Updated on August 9, 2015

Lying in a patch of dandelions

In a sea of grass,

Your sun-tipped eyelashes

Flutter against soft cheeks.


On our backs

We watch the clouds

Float by like dreams,

Wisps of reality.


Warm fingers trace patterns

In my outstretched palm.

I count the seconds until

You happen a glance at me.


With eyes like iced tea

On a summer afternoon,

You grace me with

A timid smile.


And the words

That spill from your mouth next

Leave me utterly breathless.

But since you asked…


My answer is yes.
