Us is one

A sugar rush of touch
as butter-
flies this rub of you,
a wetness —
skin to skin
this morning
breath to chest.

I weave my fingers
with your hair, and as
we sway as dust
in sunshine; us is one
and two is more
than less.

  1. Beautiful words. Erotic, sensual….truly wonderful words and so glad you wrote them. I like this very much: and as we sway as dust in sunshine;…I love these words/descriptions.

  2. The first thought that came to my mind was ‘Mmmm’ then I thought, outside of the beautiful eroticism this piece evokes, it also speaks, at least to me, of walks through a misty quiet morning, or along the shore with seawater spray caressing the skin. More than less, indeed Master Wordweaver! 🙂

  3. I love the way you open this with sugar and butter and the word “rub,” as if you two are working in the kitchen together (getting frisky at the same time). It makes it all the more romantic.

    Excellent piece.

  4. You hooked everyone with /we sway as dust in sunshine/–short, sensual, a sexy romp as well. This piece is yet another slightly different style for you; nice to read you, because one never knows where your words will lead, or what the poetics will look like.

  5. I particularly like the last two lines — “two is more than less.” I’m not sure what it is about it. Perhaps it is the word less, which is used for uncountable things, indicating to me love that is unmeasurable.

  6. a sugar rush of touch — love this expression.
    And then thinking of the dust particles that dance in front of the sun streaming in the window and using that to describe the act of love. Stunning. You romantic, you! 🙂
