A Little Life

Under leaves and shadows
Dancing over your pale blue
And peach
Tiny dustings of cinnamon sugar
On your cheeks
Your shoulders
You reach up for me
Your defiant arms
Curling around my neck
Icecream and strawberries, cherries
With something else
An earthy, sandy, buttery
You, baked and slippery
I marvel at how you once would fit
Coiled beneath my gut
Sprung out now
A little life
Shadows dancing
Over skin
Under the leaves
