A Token of my Love

heart-in-silk

.

When I first

felt the brush

of

love’s breath

against

my heart

whispering

awakening

fluttering the feathers of wings

which I did not know it had

within

it was all

so playful

that I did not

notice

understand

know the seriousness of it

until it was too late

and

my heart had flown

away

to be with you

to

rest in your silk

.

“Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine. ”
― Christina Rossetti
