Grace, by Christopher Oak Reinier

Grace
by Christopher Oak Reinier

There is in the grace
of your woman-ness –
your voice –
a light caress, yes,
but in your body’s word,
a lilt, not consciously
addressing…

but quietly…
and sometimes nothing –
or a simple gesture,

a small gift – like a
swallow flying
lightly on a breeze –
needing only the arc
of its flight.

 

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.
