My Husband's Laugh

My husband's laugh is the fingers
on a pair of mischievous hands

that sneak and stretch
across melancholy miles

to rub at my ribs
till I'm tickled.

For The Tuesday Platform at Real Toads

What a lovely gift this would be (for Father's Day)--a poem written for him.

The phrase "melancholy miles" is brilliant.
