The Bones of Love copyThe Bones of Love

©2013 Louise Gallagher

I breathe deeply
into the sun
speckled light
warming
my face
tilted
up
to receive
its kiss
seducing me
to surrender
gravity’s resistance
to flight.

A gentle breeze
brushes against
my skin
stirring
memory
awakened
to your touch
peeling back
the bones
of love
laid bare
in night’s surrender.
