Mary Jane's Shoes

Mary Jane's Shoes

Musings of one person among many. Not exceptional in any way, as with all, I have exceptional experiences and varied reactions to those events. Mine is one of many life stories and how I manage and cope with the events which make my life my own, I attempt to put forth by way of my writings.

Snow First Touched

February 6, 2014


Longing has ended.

He places my hand in his hand.

Natural it feels to have his skin touch my skin

like placing a fork on a napkin on the left side of the plate out of habit,

like the movement of my wrist when turning a key to unlock a door,

as when kissing a child’s forehead,

as when drawn to sing a favorite song playing on my car’s radio.


This touch too, brings a wakefulness

as when snow first touched my face

when I was small

and the yard that bore the weight of my young feet and witnessed my play seemed the universe.
