Candle

What is intimacy?
is it grocery shopping
or doing laundry
is it cash, or is it credit
joy?
could it be candid
blinding
or enlightening
is it tough
or an easy breeze
blowing, rustling leaves
summer days?
winter cuddles?
raining
so we stay indoors?
simple
or complex
like sunshine
scorching my back
or clouds
soft, and relaxed
hugs or kisses
either or neither
maybe a candle
flickering flame
sometimes big
sometimes small
dripping wax
hot and cold
solids melt
liquids mold
into waves, all types of shapes
i’m learning, as i go
letting it stand
watching it drip
holding it close
hoping it’s home.
