Honeysuckle Summer




Love poems tucked away 
in your tackle box.
Love poems engraved on your skin.
At dawn the house exhales,
as I inhale your breath.
You walk through fire with me,
you dance through the storm with me.
You give me honeysuckle in an empty
Coca Cola bottle,
just like that summer in the Hamptons
long ago.
You whispered tales
and secrets of your childhood
enchanted summers.
I marveled at the stained glass windows
on the charming little church down the road,
by the graveyard.
The sun nurtured us
and caressed our bare skin
and yellow flowers in
an empty soda can
were a gift I treasured
because you loved me.
