‘Heart Sparks’ (a Poem and a Painting)

Show her the embers
Of a fire you tended long ago
When your hand enfolded hers
And you reached out to catch a spark.
How your eyes danced
With the thrill of the game.

Show her the tendrils
Of finely combed hair
That fell across your faces
When you spun through whirling leaves
And sang with glee
In a crisp autumn breeze.

Show her the drops
That glistened in your lashes
When you brushed her fevered cheeks
And – despite the coming storm –
You rocked her to sleep
Saying:

I love you
I love you
I love you
Again.
