Perspectives from a Child of the Americas

In Like

A burgeoning light melody,

on it, we reset our hopes, 

 a shallow mutual attraction,

 bolstered by flowery words and small surprises.

It is thick with kinetic energy,

 energy stored up in lips and fingertips anxious to test the durability of  chemistry.

We move ahead into uncertainty,  cherry kisses and  unexpected laughs at each other’s idiosynacrasies.

We dine on newness  and navigate like sprites,  all in the operation to establish,”in like.”
