whispering hands

delicate the fading comes

soft such whispers that span these days
touch those so far away their captured heart
springs the tumbling passion like floods of green
rising up to meet you on your journey home

such lovely curves that wrap your steely blue
holds your breath in deepening waves
a rip tide that holds you firm in its sight with
desire worn, binds your wrist in golden bangles

it was the feverish love that swallowed you
as you swallowed each other in dance, moving
cross the dirty streets to the park side of town
you laid your love down on the velvet green

there the crowds watched walking hands held
cheered atop their perch and smiled down
you there so small in his shadow tried not to notice
the red in the sky drew in the day’s final thoughts

it was from one song to another that swayed
your tender heart given freely the fragments of time
carries the ghosts that now live in those places once
vibrant, we walk alone as delicate the fading comes
