Love-Evol-Ution (He Watches Her Waver)

Tuen Hou Temple_11 MAR 2020

She mutes the wave upon her palm.
Tentative, she hangs one arm out
into the willing air. He watches
with the way he stands, well-wishing her
to understand: will love,
will love now finally show him
a way ― muscular ― exerted in her wrist,
extending frankly tip by fingertip,
till it signals (wing to wing, at last)
joint flight, blood-hope, first trust?

    1. Dear Michelle: I’m thrilled to know that you share my own sensibility on this! Needless to say the whole poem earths in that one phrase. Thank you so much for taking the trouble to comment (it’s a very rare thing). All the best with your own work . . .
