National Poetry Month 30 Poems in 30 Days Challenge, Poem #29

Perfect Day, Part 2
for my wife on a lazy Sunday in the backyard 

A sunsoaked day
with a thousand sturdy limbs of words and
  your deep, peaceful laughter
stretching like spokes,
A scent of skin over grass
  rolled against ourselves
  shoulders shining joyfully pink,
And you, the axis around which I resolve
  the sunstung expanse of my afternoon.
