Quiet Confidence

He leaned in close
taking her hand
whispering about quiet confidence

squeezing his fingers,
nodding, lodging herself solidly
within that space under his left arm
leaning far in, as close to his heart as possible

Quiet confidence?
Yes, certainly
She had never been so sure before
Although in the same moment that he whispered
She shouted loudly, boldly
Revealing herself to be a woman falling in love

Then, the woman blushing deeply
as he relaxed in the companionable silence
which had settled over them
following his whispered vote of confidence

The shouting from the mountaintop
all in her head & only just
on the tip of her tongue

Quiet confidence, yes
But her heart beating loudly
as he pulled her further into that space
where companionable silence
creates a lovely symphony
& lovers experience a moment of perfect harmony
