Mindthings – Elle

The locks fall and open doors
a summer euphony saunters in
the shadows twist and flourish
hovering above the carpet sea

A hand snakes into view
the fingertips cured and refined
they’ve traveled among softer lands
lips, cotton, cake and pillows

A new day stretches like a yawning cat
from here to horizon, everything
everything is brimming with brilliance
full of promise, full of adoration

A cube of ice balances on another
condensation shrouding the glass
it fits into the lady’s palm
and siphons the heat away

Her lips part to loose friendly words
and she dons a smile
almost furtive, almost fleeting
“Hello. I’ve been waiting.”

In the evening sway, she is calm
the ocean peels away like her gown
leaving the beach bereft
a glittering expanse for new moon, new light.
