In Love on a Wednesday

let me trace the lines
that surround the shadow of
your silhouette on the ground
while you stand against the sunlight –
smiling down at me…looking silly…
let my finger follow the outline
of your face…the smooth curve
of your lips when you smile…
i like listening to your laughter –
its almost epidemic…like a surge
of electricity powering light bulbs
as each laughing note swell…then
glide slowly…i am taken in –
swooped and scooped – like
a mother would her child…
i guess this is love…this lighthearted
feeling which accompany these
smiles that come out of the blue and
these childish giggles…these are precious –
like rare moments of rain in a dry spell…
