From Your Shoulder, by Christopher Oak Reiner

From Your Shoulder
by Christopher Oak Reiner

Yes,
I do
love to
touch and
lightly trace
the subtle slope
from your shoulder
down to your breast,
the way your skin lies,
like silk laid softly down
from the shoulder of a great
and graceful mountain – the very
mountain whose grace can best be
understood by knowing this about
you: this sweet slope from your
shoulder to your breast. For
only by knowing this can one
know how grand yet lovely
soft and fragile can be
the shoulder of a
mountain.

Christopher Oak Reinier lives and writes by the Russian River
in Sonoma County, California. One of his poems, “October Morning
on the River”, was published in the Red Wolf Journal, Summer 2014.
