This is How




Your hand cradles the back of my head
with tenderness
this is how.

Your soft breath whispers my ear, echoes the nape of my neck
with knowing,
this is how.

You pull close at the curve 
where we fit
this is how.

There is knowing
there is longing.
How did you know
this is how?

  1. ha. nice intimacy, i think often finding the how takes a bit of trial and error and finding the way...and then again somethings just come through intuition as well..smiles.

  2. i am finding new levels of intimacy with new levels of comfort as the years go by...you have said this very poetically.

  3. smiles.... yeah... how do we know... how does the other know... i usually talk quite openly about the how and don't necessarily expect the other to know... if he does anyway... heaven....smiles

  4. putting the other first - and listening. That is often "how". I really liked this sweet 55.

  6. This is wonderfully poetic sensuality.. And the repetitions make it work even better

  7. Expressing the tenderness! How could anyone leave that out? Beautifully expressed.

  8. The way you repeat "this is how" is such an effective evocation... and that little twist of turning it into a question at the end? So well turned!
