*ruby Expressions - Poem by Lillian Susan Thomas

Firelight through wine glasses
Paints ruby expressions on the ceiling
That move with the dance of shadows on the bed below.
We fall exhausted into the down comforter
Next to the dying fire,
With your hunger finally slaked,
Slumber overtakes you.
Sweat cools me quickly
In the January night,
I pull the cedar-scented blanket
Under my chin, but my stirring
Disturbs your sleep,
And you reach out of your dream
Pull me into that world of desire
where I am yours.
