MAGPIE...Prompt #173


                                      THE PROMENADE, 1918, by Marc Chagall


THANK YOU, Tess..for Magpie Tales...


THAT WORD

Licking my lips,
I swallow the taste
of last night's kiss.

You said that word,
the one with the heart
of a mayfly.

Giving up gravity,
believing that I too
have wings, I flew.

Your choreography
thrust me skyward,
enough to tease the wind.
