"Portrait (Her)"

motes of sunlight drift in a lazy caress
dappling skin to golden hues
creating soft shifting silhouettes of
skin
shape
silk
lashes lingering on cheekbones in subtle invitation
faintly flushed from heat
wine
pleasure
curving lips fight a smile
brows draw together as silent allies
failing
as that traitorous mouth
relinquishes laughter
