Nearly unseen
A breath from the shine of a shoulder
Or a neck
Flutter deeper
From the beginning
Of the centuries
Melting into skin
Craving inside
The epiphany of birth
And the yearning to return
Darker still
Warm as pools
where first life squirmed
The total embrace
Panting panting
No thought
And every

Nuh Ibn, much appreciated.

Nice, Jason. I tried to see male female but couldn't work it out. :) Unisex, I think.

Jason, I had to stop by and see how you were doing! Very nice piece! =D

Blizzard conditions here today, but that heated things up a bit.

Shameless, I think poems should have whatever meaning they evoke for the reader. What I intended is not as important as what you experienced.

Kelly, so great to see you! I've been lurking on your blog. So great to see your progress. I can't wait to have copies of your books in my hands!

Joni, hope you all are getting cozy under the blankets. :)

I found this a little different from your usual. of course everybody gets something different
from every piece but i found it a little unsettling.
Great photo!

Anna, I suppose a poem has as many meanings as the people who read it.

Scents (good ones that is) can be powerful, memorable and evocative. You've captured all that Jason. Well done.

I am glad I stopped in to browse your poetry archives. I am impressed. You are a talented poet and photographer.
