You I Know

You I Know

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

Got the idea from one of Bill's comments

"
Your lifted palm, says help.
Your crooked smile, says sure.
That protruding chin, says stop.
While twinkling eyes, say more.

My name you say and I arise.
"Dance with me," I coo.

As we let the stars hypnotize.
We mingle our love with time.

Poetry is as close as we can be
to language.
As gestures are to love.

Lovely touches imbued in this.
Looking forward to reading more.

Thank you :)I look forward to returning the visit.
Near rhyme, nearly rejected, but the smile cedes the feelings within.
Lovely, short piece, Cherrie.

:) Thank you Jacob. Short and sweet that's motto.
I really liked the visuals, but my heart asked for more lines to be there; not many, just more.

Helped by a palm lifted
The smile sure spoke crooked
Stopping above a chin perturding
Speaking eyes that say twinkling

( I went with perturding but can't help but think you meant protruding?)

Isn't it interesting how our loved ones communicate without words? There is a whole unspoken vocabulary that is unique to each person. Well written, Cherrie.
