    I am fixed upon your image.
    My fingertips
    ache to graze the line
    Of your cheek,
    my tongue eager
    to taste the oblivion
    pooled in the cup of your shoulder,
    and read aloud
    the sacred cushion of your lips.
    I examine the photo with primal gaze,
    Hungry with longing.
    I take in every pixel and bit of you
    Each element of shadow and shine
    that surrounded you on that brilliant day.
    You did not know,
    (did you sense it)
    when
    you smiled into the camera
    (how could you have known),
    That farther down your path was
    A woman
    waiting
    for a Vision
    of Someone
    something like you
    Who would whisper into her soul,
    and take up residence in the corner of her eye.

    Derrick: You know how much I treasure our poetic connection. Proof of the power of words. Nuff said.

    Brotherman!!: Glad to know you spent some time on the fringes of the Chocolate City! I'm a former Northeast dweller, and know Queens Chapel/Michigan Ave well! Thanks for taking the time to read and respond. Poetry comes alive when it is shared and embraced by others. Thanks for sending the energy. I receive it.

    Sherykah: So glad you like my piece. Thanks for taking the time to tell me so. It's nice to get positive words from a fellow sister-poet. Peace and Blessings.

    Your imagery is beautiful..there are textures overlaid in hues, couched in rhythms that I experienced with all my senses... I was there, behind your eyes.

    Thank you
