A weekend away

A weekend away
mapping our intersection
told in six haiku

Natural retreat
animal spirits refreshed
washed by the river

Chirping among trees
our thoughts flew like birds at dawn
in all directions

Your warmth like the sun
fish jumped from those mottled eyes
your smiles seemed like bait

Challenging questions
a gentle vivisection
my heart feels exposed

We built a campfire
flames danced on questions of would
embers like your cheeks

Now filled with new words
after our time together
your cat missed my tongue
