Verse: somehow your hands

(Tomorrow is m'lady's birthday. If you follow her on Twitter, wish her happy birthday then. I wrote this as a gift for her, in a car, this morning, on my BlackBerry. I made some editorial changes and additions, but it is 95% the same as the fevered note I made.)

somehow your hands
have seen me
before this

and loosed
into the air
i soar

in impossible wonder
and words wanting
to know

the how
of here and now
which is unfolding

in a shorthand
of finger strokes

my soul
a canvas of
slight and seeming

feathered phrases
i won't recall
but for the mysteries

that you
have mined and met
in me
