Textures

bark      

When you have a day 

blessed with minutes, events, feelings

that slide like fine silk

through your fingers–

soothing to touch–

you want to wrap up

in the cool blue of it

and stay.

There are the other

days with a different 

texture.

Shadows and light tug

against each other.

Great grooves crease the way.

You can scratch or slice

your fingertips,

so you touch softly 

and with care.

Both textures bring

Beauty.
