Lovingly, a side glance.

Nervous stare. Bite of the lower lip.

Rose infused cheeks lit bright.

Stuttered words from those caught looking.

A reached out hand, tentative handshake–

eyes meet and it’s born in that moment where spirits join, new life begins.

A loving spell falls over two souls.

Blankets in romance.

As the world sighs at the vision.

It started with a glance.
