The Thread

He dangles mauve enticingly
before her inquisitive eyes
Light flecks dance between white spaces
Flicker in emerald hazel hues.
Enchanted by her sudden smile
She catches his breath in azure
Holding it like a butterfly.
Feeling the pulse in golden strands
Tortoiseshell against skin tone thoughts
He yields before playful release.
She reaches out to touch the thread
Soft patting kitten pawed with claws
still sheathed, to see if it is real.
