Touch – Thankvember Seventh
What does it mean, to touch or be touched?
the soft caress of an edge of lace,
a cat’s fur warmed by the sun,
the perfection of a newborn’s cheek?
Is it the aversions?
For me styrofoam, velvet,
or the feel of socks on a rug
make me cringe.
Is it those moments of intimate connection
between partners of long standing, or new lovers?
Or is it something more…?
Does touch have depth?
Hidden meaning in
The stoking of fingers along skin
Gliding or gripping, embracing or clutching…
Is there a deeper place to know
A touch so deep that there is no need
For any physical touch?
My soul to yours
Your heart to mine
Ideas and emotions carried
In letters you read on the screen
Or the page.
I am touching you
In this instant
