Dragons and Peonies

Please come read Christine’s wonderful poem “Dragons and Peonies” about those first gazes across a room that turn into – More! See if her words touch off some of your old memories!

Brave & Reckless

The skin I am in

Longs to become acquainted

With the skin you are in

Our eyes meet

Across the room

And I forget that

We are not alone

We came tonight with

A larger group of friends

But we are increasingly

Attuned to each other

There is something in the air

Tonight

I like the

Boldness of your gaze

As you keep catching my eye

Your snaggle tooth grin

The sound of your laughter

At some inside joke

The tantalizing glimpse

Of ink peeking out of

Your shirt sleeve

I wonder what it will look like

Lined up against the ink

On my arm

My gentle peonies

Against your fiery dragon

Your jeans and ironic tee

Hint of lanky muscles

Of steel

That I think will fit nicely

Against my curves

I cannot stop the smile

And slight blush from

Crossing my face

You seem to be

Reading my mind

Across the room
