shifted blue
as you return to my arms

    Okay. This gave me pause. There is a sensual and inviting presence within these lines, and I am totally intrigued. Very well done, Bart.

    Hmmm – eyes change when beholding the beloved.

    Have you noticed how if you look at a photo you can tell how the person looking at the photographer, feels about the photographer, from their eyes?

    It’s always plain to see when they love them. Eyes don’t lie. Mostly.

    You’ve caught it – that ‘look of love’.
