The Breath of Sighs

The Breath of Sighs

A Poem by Audrey Howitt

On the breath of sighs

I seek to be reborn into the warmth

Of love sated in the glimmer

Of whispers sweeping away the years.


On the breath of sighs

I touch the tenderest part of you,

Sheltered in a heart

Whose beats divide the onrush of worry

From the hand that moves within--

And hope that is enough.


In this breath, this momentary pause,

Can we make enough room

To find each other


And again.

An expression of love that is deep. whoever it is intended for is very lucky.

That last stanza expresses one lover's very attractive proposal.
I hope the deal is made.
Smart, perceptive and artful work, Audrey.

Warm and sizzling in the best possible way .. and a depth that makes the reader wonder, '.. Sheltered in a heart ~ Whose beats divide the onrush of worry ..'
