Gideon’s Challenge

IMG_6969Rainforest Sentinels

Touch with care
or not
at all
for cedar slivers
like bee stingers
when piercing flesh
leaving behind
red marks
angry welts
when a rough
knocks bark free
from thick trunks.

  1. Touch with care…feeling tender, baby? I need a little help with the emotions of this one. Awe perhaps? And tenderness, I think. I didn’t get enough time yesterday and dammit I want to hold you.
