Contextual Tango, Greened

Written with Aurora Phoenix of Insights from “Inside”

From across the room
you catch their eyes
smile hazeled twinkles
while crooking the finger
of your jostling thoughts
the words don’t realize
they are wending toward you
until they stand breath held
two steps back, left side

Bending to your will
their eyes follow, captivating
whispers pouring from lips
right hand on the small of your back
your green emeralds fractured
hearing them in kaleidoscope
they form in mist on window glass
you finally exhale
breathe in secret messages

Under centripetal force
of your dancing syllables
they twirl in burbling cadence
threading whispers through stars
jades of your soul refracting
waft in impish perfume
scatter gems of hinted meaning
on a symphonic whim
each breath a studded lifetime

Furtively, like Cupid’s assassins
they gracefully stalk your senses
arching backs, hazel lights ablaze
shooting glances into hearts
savoring verdant spirits
intoxicating to discern
dizzying lyrical harmonies
breaths escape in laughter
with smiles, the chasers

In metaphors’ enchantment
swim arcs of fantasy
scented emerald as the isles
you spin through luscious syllables
orchestrating heady liberty
fleetfooted and provocative
they pause, softly wink
you gasp inaudibly
anticipate the leap

Hands meet in chiasmus
the steps foretold in dreams
leaving softly spoken footprints
in sea foam scrubbed sand
they harmonize in dulcet tones
daring your aerial motion
catching you in sweet nothings
breathing in lullabies
singing songs of your grace

Their choreography phases
shifts to luminous humming
draping across your soul
kelly blankets of intuition
bridge known and connotated
touching sips of permanence
in the pause between notions
drift murmurs salted sweet
your breathing sighs apace

Shadows from every letter
waltzing to minuets
stars twinkle to dazzling darkness
strobing, midori afterglow
their effect forming rivulets
streaming down your memories
you mouth the words
falling from sage lips
with one last tranquil breath
