A blanket 
A bag 
A bell
A wind 
A want 
A need  
We waked slowly 
To arrive 
At the art 

 

She moves with intention
The colour white is peaceful this time 


                                                                  A blanket a body

 

perhaps I held on too long - push 


                                                                   I think she knows.

 

A bell sounds , I am blanketed, a shared breathe, I would like to stay here forever.
What is it? the space between intimacy shared  -I forgot you were watching 
this is togetherness cocooned.


                                                     “ I think you could really love here” 

 

It whispers.

 

I think you could learn to love this place, resolve. 
How do you hold and be held when you are seen.
The muscles a little tighter.
The thoughts a little more controlled. 
Is it wrong to let a soul become a reflective surface?
The danger of the permission of a response is to look closer than the feeling of that moment.
and now I am doing that.
Thinking of how to make a blanket we pluck the feathers from a bird and stuff them all inside for our comfort.
But no. no. this is the type of thing that she so carefully lulls.

 

                                                                    disappears.

 

                                                                      cradles. 

Nurture, nature and back to a blanket.
We start with a blanket and a breath, they drape one over us evert night and when we leave, a final breath they cover our face with one.
