jillypoet: mom trying to write

Each day I wish I had invented waterproof sticky notes (for shower inspiration) or pen-friendly diapers to get down all my quirky thoughts that I am sure are relevant and publishable. And so God (actually another writer-mommy) sent me The Blog.

Four seasons, twenty years past

You fell into me like sweet summer corn into hot melted butter.
After the first red leaf fell I knew you were a tree to climb swiftly.
Snow melted on our tongues while our hands drew circles under wool sweaters.
In Spring, all of life pokes painlessly through ice and earth: grass tips, your lips.

And a bonus sentence...
Kissing underwater, sharp stones and snail shells steal my breath from your lips.
