Silent

There you are, looking so relaxed
Yet your eyes belie
Your heart’s true intent
As your gaze catches mine
You flash me a quick smile
Which I subtly return
And soon we are making movements
Toward each other
Across the room

Your fingertip dances
Closely out of reach
Through the air as you gesture
“Your smile is so sweet”
I gesture back
Signing through the air
“Your compliments are welcome”
And we make a neat pair

And so we spend the evening
In silent frenzitude
Building our song of love
To which no ear is tuned.
