Candles


Spa Image - Google

indulgence 

take my outstretched hand
follow me won't you
into a candlelit bath
rosewater and glycerin 
intimacy staged just so
troubles are banished here
we focus on each other
nothing else matters
in the afterglow
as candles flicker and fade
we find renewal

  6. Lovely. The phrase 'staged intimacy' strikes me.
