AN AWAKENING TOUCH

by thereluctantpoet

By Bree Leto – Secretthoughtswithin and
Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet
AN AWAKENING TOUCH

Our first touch–
with only your fingers
slowly brushing my hand
sent an extraordinary
jolt of electricity,
through my whole body
that I had never felt before.

The twinkle
in your eye
sparked imaginings
that lit up my soul

The smile on your lips
whispered to my heart
making its beating race
as a blush showed
upon my face

An unintended touch
that somehow came to be
as your fingers brushed my hand
and awoke a part of me
I never knew
was waiting there

I shared a touch of the new
and a lingering stare with you
and hoped

THE WIND WHISPERS

by thereluctantpoet

BY CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM

THE WIND WHISPERS
IN THE TREES
THE LEAVES
RUSTLE THEIR REPLIES

THE PIED PIPER WIND
SPINS STORIES
TELLING TEMPTING LIES

COME FLY AWAY
COME FLY AWAY
UPON MY GENTLE BREEZE
LEAVE THE TREES
COME BE WITH ME
FAR, FAR FROM EARTHBOUND TREES

COME BE WITH ME
COME DREAM WITH ME
COME LOOK AT ALL YOU’LL SEE
DRIFTING ON A GENTLE BREEZE
IF YOU’LL COME WITH ME

THE WIND WHISPERS
TO THE LEAVES
AND THEY BELIEVE
BUT THE AUTUMN WIND LIES

She Heard The Door
Firmly Shut Behind Her
Then Slowly Turned Around

As The Whisper From Her Heart
Said,

“Sometimes
There Is No Going Back”
