This is (finally) my response to DVerse’s Quadrille Monday. Our word is “flush.”

When I look at you and smile,

Do my cheeks flush pink?

Are my feelings written boldly

In their shyness, like all this ink?


When my heart becomes a-flutter

Like a hummingbird, will it nectar drink?

Promise me this buoyant feeling

Will not sink.
