Fraiku: Long Day

Night arrives after a long day
I just want to be covered by your breath
but the rain will have to do

  1. Yes, but only after you gargle.

    Seriously though, this says so much in so few words. I love it.

    It’s actually raining here in AZ and I am loving it.

    And again, my response to one of your poems is – simply – Oh, my lord…….

    Puts me in mind of a line from one of my favourite songs by Paulo Nutini – ahhhh – Paulo….sigh…..

    “I turn to you and inhale you where you lay…”
