Breath pushed into your lungs is enough.
After so much labor of love,
At last we’re allowed to meet.
I count your ribs, your fingers,
Enjoy sweet perfection.
Grow with leisure,
Age with love.
This was written for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday #121 – Slow and Work.
For those of you who enjoyed my post about prompts last week, Tanka Tuesday is a great prompt for those who want to explore poetry, learn, create, and read. I think it’s one of the great prompts of the week, and I wholeheartedly encourage you to join in!
