Tender and Warm

She is tender and warm.
Arrives on a morning-fresh
Without light knock or bell
Like a whiff of tea and toast
Upon a hot summer breeze.

She is tender and warm.
We perch on auburn-dabbed
cliffs, shoulder against shoulder
Study each other sideways
Relax, with breath abated,
An odd-looking pair, yet
Somehow finely matched.

She is tender and warm.
Our bodies crumple in a fit of laughs.
With our heels, we plough small
Rocks along and off the dusty edge.
Languish in and read saucy prose
Savour a bookish kind of bliss.

She is tender and warm.
Inside, I feel a love so wide, I float
Awash, like starfish on the tide
So magically real—I am never more
Sure of myself than at this very moment.

We are tender and warm.

Terry Gibson, June 11, 2013.
