A never-ending read.

Poetry A shower of orange crisp autumn leaves falling in a blurred backdrop of trees

To read
everything there is to read—
The swell of your cheeks
in a hidden smile.
Your words tumbling over my tongue
tasting more than you reveal.
The subtle movement of your brows.
What the hem of your dress whispers in your wake.

What a falling leaf
spinning dizzy unto the Earth says.
What the wind
playfully ruffling my hair carouses.
What the sunlight
breaking apart in the ripple of a lake squeals.
What the dragonfly
that whizzes and pauses a drift sees.
What the blushing night bride to the day groom sighs
as she creeps over to him for that long awaited kiss.
A fleeting moment so cherished.

Let me read you.
Read your landscape,
your wayward weathers.

Let me see
only You
And let it be
A never-ending read.
