Upon Meeting at the Edge of a Lake

Your breath told its tale
First, along your bare
Tremoring belly
Long before escaping across
To the shore of my shoulder.
It gave itself away to my palms
Through your pelvis
To gentle fingers
Finding seismic quivers.

Waist deep,
Wading in moments
Lower your head
Breathe deep
Dive in with me
I into you

Let your lungs betray you
Have them whisper to me
And I’ll return my own
Carrying one words in response
