Aflutter, indeed.

What makes your heart flutter?

I was asked the question, but I didn’t have an answer. Here is an on-the-spot poetic version of what I should have said: 

What Makes My Heart Flutter, a poem
(I know, such an original title)
by Alexa L., written August 11, 2010

little notes that say I
really really really
like you

songs written,
in metaphor
and melody

a construction paper rose
made with tape, love, scissors

a drawing, a likeness
of you and me

a chance meeting,
you planned

my little hand
in yours

I like your smile,
your eyes

an approach
of lips

I love you 

I need you 

a first,
a wanted kiss.
