Sonya Florentino

Knowing

She could feel his eyes

on the nape of her neck

She could hear him

barely breathing

And wondered if one can

hear a heart

And a soul singing

    A beautiful expression of an intimate moment. You leave open the question of whether he is aware that she is aware of him. Nicely done.

    Two bodies but one soul. A state of realization and bliss. Penned with masterly skill.

    And so you ask can one hear a heart and
    soul singing? The answer is YES! For in
    your words I can clearly hear your heart
    and soul. Ahhhhh, what a beautiful song
    that you do sing.

    When bodies and souls become one, all inner feelings become
    vocal. A very romantic piece of write, Sonya.
