into fog (haiku though I wish it were haiga)

Beaver Lake at Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC, Canada by Bobanny at wikicommons

into fog
smudging our thoughts–
we lose who we are

Abrazos (for One Shot Wednesday)

If your lips open
as if in awe, and purse
for a light trill, if a tiny whisper
escapes through your smile, a
soft hiss as you breathe
you have said,
Abrazos.

Say it again
and feel your
breast caving in
as your arms curve
like an open arc, an arc
the size of your aching.

Then when your palms
clasp, feel how your heart
gasps, as it curls
in hers.
