A late valentine

Mostly, I've been working like crazy on the latest round of revisions to The Door to Yesterday. My second group of readers got their comments to me at the end of January, and I've been incorporating their suggestions: a herculean task which has absorbed most of my creative attention for the last month...but here and there, other muses creep in and leave an offering.


My lips against you
the crush of skin to skin
mine yielding to yours
as yours yields to mine.

A single act
becomes a metaphor:
we press together
in paradox
stronger as we
both give way.

A kiss is
love in a nutshell.
