Working from Home

Form: Free Verse

Moments are there to be taken
and treasured like found gemstones
precious moments in love
the sleepy pearls of awakening
just me and you
and thirty minutes before work
thirty minutes of loving and exploring
scent and touch
seeking every nuance of the moment
sating the unquenchable thirst
of lust before the morning rush
lingering in passion’s kiss is far sweeter
than the grumpy coffee that waits on the kitchen side
or dragging a hairbrush through rat-tails left by the night
everything happening too fast but the delight
explodes on our flesh
rapid caresses and hectic touches
before scrambling out of bed
and hitting the log on button
while still getting dressed
rinsing the toothpaste from our lips with coffee
and a last kiss before morning break
