With each gentle word
each graceful gesture of her spirit
she enfolded herself around him
reaching out with the winds of her affection
holding his face in her hands
she spoke words that were
as soft kisses upon his weary brow
with a tender and gentle strength
she began to move
the pain-rusted tumblers
of his heart

    A tenderness and caring that’s inspiring. It takes a big heart to do what’s described in your poem — and to write a poem such as this.

    Wonderful metaphoric way to describe love being brought back to this man by his woman. Beautifully written as always 🙂

    I really like this one, Eric! 😀 to a heart that once was on lockdown, perhaps it is possible for someone to hold the key to your heart. Unlocking is meant to be a slow process. So touching! 😊❤️

    What a balm.. “pain-rusted tumblers” – genius my friend! I don’t know how you do it, creating these marvelous phrases one after the other.
    Have a lovely week!
