Little Birds

Thomas W Case

Beneath these
satin sheets,
my memory
flutters like
little birds on
indigo nights.

Folded wings
rest in my
mind's eye.
Fingers itch with
Delta of Venus,
orchids in bloom,
wet with the
sticky dew.

I grip my
and begin
a slow
It feels so

    "Beneath these

    A magical beginning with a soft caressing feel to it. The ending was the completion with the waltz a dance so compatible in its sways and flow in a circular pattern around the dance floor. Vivid imagery here.
