April 25: Sign (#NaPoWriMo #NaPoWriMo2020 #GloPoWriMo #Poetry))

 

SIGN

Your hands show and tell, swiftly,

you’re with me. Every finger curling,

swaying, dipping and lifting matters,

reveals hidden corners of your heart

unseen, unsaid in your eyes. Still

reluctant to respond, looking at you

with eyes wide open, I am content

in my silence, knowing I own this

wordless world (or worldless word)

where only action counts. A heart

pulses in step with mine, vibrations

I sense through skin and air, sending

ripples across the surface that divides

you and me. Connecting two sides of

this mirror, conveying without sound

souls full of yearning, for friendship,

love and understanding. You’re all

I see, this moment before our universe

sighs goodnight and mutes all starlight.
