Hugs

by In All Our Years

in nows,
breathing in,
breathing out,
holding-

close step one,
closer step two,
arms opening-

each us,
our own space,
opened,
vulnerable-

slowly, firmly,
affectionately,
breasts touching-

limbs seek and find,
eyes closed … hearts open,
bodies embracing-

sweet and lush,
air in and out,
life in-

still, still, still,
hold, hold,
holding-

ba ba, ba be, ba ba,
ba be, baba, baba, baba-

two into one,
we are now,
One-
