204 -Dusk

Poem number 204
As the light fades, I find myself contemplating your arse
It’s half in shadow now, as you doze
Through the timeless dusk.
As arses go, it’s pretty damned good
Even in the full glare of sunlight, but here
And now it is magnificent.
The shadows lend mystery to the curves
So well known to my eyes and hands
So that now I discover anew.
The gentle swell of your hip. The dimple
At the base of your spine
And the graceful, half hidden buttocks below
Are refound, revisited as an explorer revisits
Places once new.
The initial wonder returns, melded now with memories
Both recent and sepia. A new wonder is born
And I savour it, here in the half light of dusk.
