Our Hearth – A Poem


Shy fireflies
two hearts
Our hands
they dance
to light
our hearth

    nice…i like the inplied intimacy…fireflies are so cool as well, they make me think of summer….like the acknowledgement of shy as well…and how you use the fire-flies and ignite in the end…and the dance of course…i am married to a ballet dancer so that is always special to me…smiles.

    got your email…cant access email from work, so get back to you this eve….
