Just Another Escapist
I whip my jeep faster around the turn than I should. I get a little impatient, but when I pull in and see his car, that head of tangled hair bent over a book, his recognition and heartfelt grin, I can't help myself. He makes my heart beat, dark and dashing.
"Hey sweetheart," he strolls around his car as I open my door.
Before I can even get out he leans in and kisses, cupping my face in his hands. My own hands blindly encircle him in a warm hug, adding a breathless "Hello" to the parting of our lips.
He's so tall, evident in his long stride, in my reach around his waist. He is my stability on the treacherous path, a strong hand for the stairs, the branch-mover. He found this quiet outdoor refuge, where we have peace under a green roof.
"Beautiful," I say to his words. "Sounds like Bob Dylan."
He strokes my hair, lying the notebook down."You've always had a thing for poets."
"But never poetry." I snuggle closer and sigh. "You changed that."
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

I'm practicing the description of action over time. My tendency is to belabor every consecutive moment, so I was more careful in choosing what to include.

I could use someone like that to put me on to poetry. I'm not a huge fan of it, myself.
I do like your descriptions and your choice of situation and language.
