baby steps to the soul

love
you have found my fingers

when will you take
my hand

brushing back
the curtains of the night

when will you take
this wind

that whips endless circles
under my feet

the transparent moon
caught in my hair

the light that pulls towards you
from my open fingers

the song that follows
your trail
of notes

I like your choice of photos for this poem — those small particulars, those transparent moon bubbles, a water song that follows a trail... it's a lovely combination.

Sounds to me like "love" needs a nudge. You do have a way with words!!
