MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt

This week Pat gives us a poem entitled “The Blind Leading the Blind” by Lisel Mueller to work with and asks that we take something from it and build a post on that.
You can read it in its entirety here

I’m concentrating on the final line:

There are two of us here. Touch me.

Take my hand, don’t be afraid,
You are not alone, touch me.
I can feel you heartbeat
Through my fingertips,
A strong steady rhythm,
I bring your hand to my lips,
Touching you.
Sensitivity I have never known
Our hands entwine,
We are not alone.
As one, we touch,
As one we feel,
We are,

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    So beautiful and delicately penned.

    wonderful in its tentative, slightly hesitant suggestion … to reach out, to touch – to search and seek, – touch can be such a powerful exploration, without words … in fact, scientifically, it is proven that it is of utmost necessity for humans to thrive ….
    anyhow, I like where you went with this, and how you’ve created that tremulous sense of wonder, yet apprehension, too – and yet offered to dare …

    lovely poem Di – and thanks for writing to the Sunday prompt this week 🙂

    Very well done indeed, particularly with reducing so effectively down to the essence.
