Breathless Dance


Standing there, having just picked up his saxophone five minutes ago, he was merely running scales and simple warm-up melodies.  His own music lately seemed flat in spirit.  Since he was a young man he had come to this garden, and for some reason, good fortune, inspiration, or even clarity on life decisions came his way when he visited that spot.

After playing for over an hour, he felt the same.  No change.  Dropping his sax abruptly, he growled a moment into the space around him.  Trying not to grit his teeth at his frustration, he stared hard at his case on the ground near his feet, ready to throw his saxophone into it and pack up for home.  His thoughts, however, kept getting pulled, and in his anger he didn’t recognize what was happening.

He heard it…. A sound he couldn’t recognize and without thinking the reed touched his lips again.  Wetting it first, he felt a melody rise from deep inside of him.  He even began to sway and rock back and forth, his dance partner in his hands.  His fingers fluttered the keys, unlocking a rhythm that began to climb.  He opened his eyes, and that’s the first time he saw her, ever, but he wasn’t surprised.  She had already picked up on his cadence, and her body shivered and flowed with the song.  She was the closest she could be to his saxophone when their eyes locked.  The finale of the tune resonated in the air around them until all they were left with was the heavy breathing of their eminent longing.

Moving In


The weekend was a long one, as far as things to do.  They both had their own lists, and then one they shared, of things to get done.  Collapsing on the couch, she swung her legs into his lap and he pulled one of her feet up to massage.

Kneading her foot, he looked over at her and watched her grimace and moan with relieved pain.  He imagined pulling the aches from her body with each movement of his hand.  Pulling it’s aura straight out of her body.  Looking back up at her, he could see her begin to relax.

Noticing her drift off, “Oh no.  Come on.  Let’s get to the bed.”  He stood up and went to hold his hand out to her, but she began to melt right off of the couch onto the floor.

Chuckling, he pleaded with her and held his hand out again, but she tugged him down to her, a genuine smile on her lips as he hit his knees to hold her.  Closing her eyes and moving into his arms, against his chest, she closed her eyes again.  “I forgot where we were.  Which city,” she said.  “We’ve moved so much but it never matters where we are.  As long as I can do this.”

Smiling at the right corner of his mouth, he kissed the top of her head.  That’s what it was about for him.  Her comfort.  Her smile.

A new season is almost as good as a new  year.  Out with the old; in with the new.  The atmosphere around you changes.  Gives you something new to look at.
Perhaps this one is your season, too.  Bonus…

Fall symbolizes many things to many people.  Turning over a new leaf.  A second spring.  Letting go.  Perhaps, simply falling.

Falling slowly
Eyes that know me
And I can’t go back

Moods that take me
And erase me
And I’m painted black

Will you have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

So take this sinking boat
And point it home
We’ve still got time

-Falling Slowly: Josh Groban-

What is it about the still of the night?
The quiet sound of the apartment breathing…
The air crisp and chill in the vacant loft.

Mostly darkness; just the city night lights and a soft glow.
No distractions here…
A visual haven from the bustle of your day.

The rain outside layering down like a blanket.
To sit, and watch, and listen, and feel, and breathe…
Quiet…  Shh…

Peace and serenity like a buzz hit you.
It’s okay…
Give in.  Relax.  Shh…

Desirable Denial


Slow torture you yearn for.
Admit it.
You know the pleasures rewarded for patience.
Hold it…. Not yet.

The descent back down as you try to calm yourself,
Only to be denied again as you’re forced back up.
The waves you’re forced to ride,
So sorry for your thrills.

This time I keep you there,
Forcing you to hang on to your training.
You know what I like.  Answer me.
Do you want it?  No longer denied?
