Five Fingers

Perfectly fitted as if by design
Your five fingers woven in mine
Coupled palms sublimely connecting
Severed love lines now intersecting
Sharing laughs and spending time
Captive souls forever entwined

    Don't know how else to say this, but 'For a poem that uses rhyme, / This one is absolutely divine.' It is one of those where it crossed my mind, hey, why didn't I think of that? High praise from Mr. Shot Gunn. (Report) Reply

    Ah - hand holding - nearly a lost art. Very sensual and connecting. Wonder why more people don't do it? You elevate the art to a beautiful place - wonderful and adoring write.

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
