“Every heart sings a song, incomplete until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet”   –  Plato


“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.”  

–  Charles Dickens


“Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.”  

–   Rainer Maria Rilke







like fingerprints

 your touch

lands delicately

like a butterfly

on the small

of my back

as each journey


rough against

softness as

firmness increases

pressure mounts

indelibly you engrave

upon flesh

the stories

we write

the roughness

of your fingertips


neumonic device

      Merci beaucoup Cindy. Things are progressing, albeit slowly. Shall I take it that you survived the rattlesnake adventure unscathed? 🙂

  2. I could feel this one Lea, so beautifully captured.

    As always brilliant quotes!

      Christine, thank you so much. I am afraid I am a kinestetic individual and touch & feeling is much of the way I perceive the world.

      You know me, I must have my quotes… 🙂
