loves first meeting

The glow of the day when I met you
Is engraved on my soul
The grey was washed away by
Warm ambient colour
You stood alone in the bus car park
The profile of your small perfect face
Lifted to the sky
You shook out your hair which was taken by the wind
A pair of liquid eyes washed with light
Did my heart jump like a puppy?
In my chest

I smile I glance away shy
Did you look back? I’m not sure
Slowly I walk towards you

You bent forward at the waist stretching
The journey from tired limbs
Reaching gracefully towards the earth
A vision of colour on grey streets
Where people huddle into dark heavy coats
I walk my feet have become wooden clubs
The distance closes
My blood hot in my face
The breath smoky in my throat
My head like a bee buzzed
For you where a sweet flower open
Before me you’re scent on the wind.
