A Picture Of An Afternoon

Laying on a couch

Where she is sitting

Immersed in her novel

With fingers navigating

The valleys of his hair 

With his head in her lab

Reading a book of poetry

Then finding a poem he likes

He reads it aloud to her

Her fingers stop

He continues reading

She looks up

While listening

She looks back at him

He finishes reading the poem

She says, “wow!”

And smiles

Then sinks her head back in her novel

He goes on reading in his head

And the sun continues shining

Through the curtains

Along with the breeze

And the street noise

And the air
