MORNING SKIN 

| a love poem chapbook |

---

Morning skin is a small collection of recent love poems that I wrote for my husband of 25+ years. The inquiry and angst of deep and long lasting love, adoration, grief, longing, and devotion weaves its way through the pages organically with little editing, as my writing of them initially did not consider the possibility of sharing with other eyes. It's my feeling that words from the heart like these are more about the vulnerability and less about the craft of literature. Private sharings if you will, little earthquakes, raw sugar. 

A spill of the heart.

Half moon

In the arc of your foot

Just curved enough for mine

To fit

Cupped like a kitten’s back

In the hand’s palm

But somehow more

Storied.

Slipping in from skin to sigh

Breath to thigh

Just sleepily kissing away the delta  waves 

Tugging small pulses from 

Inside to out

Pressing sides into sides

Fingers into fingers

Smiles into smiles

Matching the rise of the sun

Warming sweet dreams

Laying tender in a spoon

Like a ripening pear

Like a ripening pair.
