The body knows...

**Pardon me whilst I stretch a bit. I'm a little out of practice again. Dang it, I need to write more--well, write more here, as opposed to there. (I know, I know, that makes no sense, but it sorta does, doesn't it?)

The prompt at Poetry Thursday this week is "the body knows." What does the body know, you ask? Well, all kinds of things. This morning, it happens to know quite well that I was out until 1 this morning. Quite well.

But that's not what's on my mind. Sticking to my "theme of the year," here is what my body knows, this morning. This one's even titled, and I rarely ever do that.

Because of a look...

Beating heart ceases, briefly,
then rushes to catch back up.
Full-body flush,
the color rising just before the heat.
Twinges of dancing in my toes
My eyes go wet, not quite welling.

Hm..that felt rusty. I'll have to get back to writing/blogging on a more regular basis.

For other body-knowledge, check out Poetry Thursday.

    I like the rushing part. I could seeit doing just that.

    In-between state of consciousness

    I liked how it took me into the body and made me feel the physical changes from the inside out.

    It didn't look rusty to me. After I found your page it was clear you know what you're doing and I liked the message before and after the poem too. That was a great topic for you.

    1. I like that you have a title. I think they are important.

    2. I think this is beautiful. Doesn't seem rusty to me.

    3. I envy those who can write short poems well.

    4. Well done.
