©2013 Louise Gallagher

Spring waits
in silent anticipation
of promises
yet to awaken
beneath the snow
where roots dig
into memory frozen
in the yearning for the return
of summer.

I lay
silent in the dark
of your arms
holding me
deep within the night
where your touch
my skin hot
with memories awakening
in the sultry heat of the return
of summer.
