    I slid my hands into the
    plush pockets of his jacket...
    such a gentle one, he'd let
    me wear his coat...

    there was a chill in the air
    that raised the fine hairs
    on my face...

    or was it his arms as he
    encircled me?

    I felt his keys deep in the
    corner of the left side
    and as we walked south
    along the western
    boundary of central park
    I had visions of the
    first time he unlocked
    his door for me

    I couldn't call it shy
    but there was a kind of
    pleading in his eyes ~
    watching mine as I drew
    closer

    ...and he let me in

    His world, full of nostalgic
    artifacts and decorated
    in simplistic elegance...
    he shared his precious
    treasures

    things he hadn't shown
    anyone before...

    His private gallery, he
    laid before me and
    let me take my time
    touching, feeling
    fondling such
    magnificent ~ tender
    finds

    my appreciation of him
    soared in exponential
    leaps and I was
    bound to his love in
    ways I'm still discovering

    ~~~~~~

    I fingered the keys inside
    his pocket, using tactile
    memory of life behind
    his door

    and smiled,
    because
    there's more

    entering from the garden of serenity

    Alyce,

    what can i say but welcome to the peace of the garden of the heart, of love and joy. i have a place prepared for you and you are free to invite anyone you want....

    this scribe is so familiar to me and yet i have never experienced it until today...

    true love is noticing the finer things wrapped in the holding of hands...

    ***keys of love***

    returning to the garden....
