Aria



You dwell between
syllables & lotus leaves
Not a rhapsody of teal
But torrent of kisses & fire
melting winter crystals to rain



~0~0~


Weave your cyan pink sky
between each ice drop chandelier
Touch me with promises
Made long ago, I surrender
to ardent dusk, blooming with tulips

  1. This is super hot and sexy. I'd say I'm left breathless, but what I really mean is restless.

    This is a poem I'd like to memorize to have, at the ready, when I really need it.

  8. I always enjoy your sensual poetry, Grace, it makes me want to give it a try. These lines are beautiful: "Not a rhapsody of teal/But torrent of kisses & fire/melting winter crystals to rain". And love "Touch me with promises..."

  11. ...between each ice drop chandelier... ooh, I can just hear those beautiful, pieces tinkling together, as a breeze gently blows. Or, maybe they are 'tingling' from the love that's in the air! Wonderful imagery!

  14. "You dwell between
    syllables & lotus leaves"

    I adore that! and I think lotus symbolizes "sacred" and that just makes it all the better! Beautiful.

  17. brilliant. response:

    my braided beard gone,
    among the lotus-eaters,
    - i am lost

    lotus eaters,
    even comfort breeds contempt,
    - from grey seas

  23. The first three lines of each --- I guess because of the attention-grabbing coloring --- are particularly captivating.
