POEM: A Shoulder Above The Wrest

I pulled her over
Two the shoulder
Commuting her sentence
Proffering a rest
Having know knead for license
Or proof of assurance

I just got back from a holiday weekend with my sweetheart.  She had inspired this poem recently.  We both relish the mutual joy of her resting in my arms.  Also, she has had a long commute to work for a long time, thus the metaphorical reference to a respite from traffic.  May we all experience such arresting beauty!
