Breathing Fresh Air..

Edward Hopper, 1922 

















We meet in the city for lunch
celebrating another book deal
I look into your soulful  eyes
I need to see you..

Your eyes sparkle with delight
piano man playing soft music
I listen attentively to your words
I need to hear you..

Whispering , I've missed you
big  city has lost its glimmer
I inhale your woodsy aroma
I need to smell you..

Let us escape these city walls
drive into green countryside
I long to kiss your soft lips
I need to taste you...

Under a willow tree we meet
relinquishing all restraints
we reach for each other
we need to touch..
sensing love..

  21. I love how the senses link each stanza, all tied together with the phrase, 'sensing love'. Neatly done and very satisfying.
