First Love (Trifecta Entry-First Place )

“First Love”

You take my hand
and in that gesture
satisfy my swirling, naked need,
spellbound as spent leaf
whose golden moment
has no hunger left
but blissful floats
mid magic flutter
back to earth

    This is gorgeous, all of it. Love it. Perfect start to my day! Thanks for sharing! By the way, can you check your link up – I came and found you through another link up you did because the current link was empty. Have a great weekend!

      I knew I was getting a ‘white page” with the link but not savvy enough to know what to do about it!   Thanks,  Jackie.

    This is so beautiful. I love the way this phrase rolls off my tongue, “satisfy my swirling, naked need,”

    Yes, I had read this on my phone the other day…your words bring so much life to this piece, Jacqueline…

    “spellbound as spent leaf
    whose golden moment
    has no hunger left”

    Wow…the depth of this…poignant and magical…I love the use of alliteration in this!
