like there is
breathe the moment sigh
kiss each freckle blushing
slow dance under moonlit night
slow dance under moonlit night
sing, laugh even for no reason
stir this moment not, it's all we have
hold each drop of us, here lingering
capture whispered breath i sigh as
you kiss each blushing freckle
bliss comes like butterfly
fleeing languid wings
hold me tight as
we slow dance
“Smile, breath and go slowly.” - Thich Naht Hanh, Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk

The ultimate truth in one line. Some may marvel, but we know that's what's called poetry.
(And I like your "feelthy peectures")
Loved the sensuality in this...very nice use of the form!ReplyDelete
Early I read the story of evil ( http://poeticdelusions.com/2011/08/09/chimera/ )ReplyDelete
and now I read the story of love... Oh how wonderful.
Kissing each blushing freckle? WOW! Mesmerizing!ReplyDelete
Ms Heaven, you make serious poetry from happy, lustful scenarios. And I LOVE it! (Well, I really like it!!!)
Very, very sensual. A lovely well written piece and, a lovely read.ReplyDelete
lovely nonet, one of my favorite forms. Touching write ~ RoseReplyDelete
Clever and beautiful. :-)ReplyDelete
hmmmmm... that slow dance moonlit night seriously invites.
This is simply gorgeous. I am so impressed with your use of this form; you make it look effortless.ReplyDelete
Just wondering . . . fleeting languid wings?
sweet and sensual.ReplyDelete
..ah, this is an intimate one my friend… i like how it goes in different ways in a same form… you’re a true talented writer!(:ReplyDelete
Thank you for your wonderful comments.ReplyDelete
Mama Zen: its fleeing, like flying :-)
This felt so honest and from the heart. fine form tooReplyDelete

Very nicely and naturally done within the formal constraint. The reader doesn't imagine the message being rendered any other way.ReplyDelete
Makes me want to try the nonet! Nicely done.lReplyDelete
speaking as a lady who's sadly celibate these days, you made my heart flutter :)ReplyDelete
"bliss comes like butterflyReplyDelete
fleeing languid wings "
Wonderful picture with the lines above.
Butterfly wings and freckles blushing, made me grin.ReplyDelete
I love this double nonet, Heaven. Quite a sensual moment caught here in your writing. Well done.ReplyDelete

creative and fantastically done.ReplyDelete

Wonderful form and movement in this picture of intimacy.ReplyDelete
I loved this poem, Heaven.ReplyDelete
Very nice, Heaven... a real feeling of intimacy here.ReplyDelete
Yes, intimate is a nice way to put it, a lil steamy too, but invery good taste :) and very well written. Have been missing you. Glad I found you again.ReplyDelete
Wow steamy, creative and and I love the shape you've created, this was a real treat.ReplyDelete
I love what you've done with the nonet form here. Content and form convey sensuality and intimacy in a very tasteful and artistic way. Nicely done!ReplyDelete
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments.ReplyDelete
I like trying out different forms of writing; more fun this way.
A great read.ReplyDelete
This looks like a really fun form - I must give it a go.
Hi there Haven,ReplyDelete
sorry i'm only finding time to write now...
It's so wonderful to read this, it lingers lightly and lands you softly in the "slow dance / moonlit / night".
btw - i love "...capture whispered" (all in between) and "blushing freckle".
Nice work with the structure.
bliss to you and yours.
Heaven, this is a very good piece. Really love it. I'm really into combining the visual aspects of poetry with the words themselves. Even the white spaces between the image and the poetry's triangular form shows connection to the moment. Really again, great job:)ReplyDelete
This is beautiful, Heaven. I love everything about it. Well done :)ReplyDelete
sensuous content wrapped up in a dazzling form! well done.ReplyDelete
Seems we both had kissing on the mind this week..loverly poem..ReplyDelete
nice form as well..
thank you for sharing:-)
Heaven, a lovely romantic dance of words and form....bkmReplyDelete
intensely romantic, love how theReplyDelete
words clip onto my tongue when
I whispered this poem.
I've never heard of this form before, but you did something very interesting...text and form.ReplyDelete
Liked this very much...a rush of passion!
Form, content and image come together here to create a perfect whole.ReplyDelete
A very accomplished piece.
Beautiful piece, pic included... I love this form, too!ReplyDelete
"hold me / like there is / no tomorrow"
"kiss each blushing freckle"
yes...i definitely sighed a time or two.
Very well written and a beautifully laid out blog btwReplyDelete
Seams like we were on the same page... Lovely Nonet...ReplyDelete
Nothing interesting to contribute, just wanted to say I really liked this piece :-)ReplyDelete
Your words fit the form wonderfully...or should I say the form fits your words... ;) // Peter.ReplyDelete
These are my favorite feelings in the world....wonderful and romantic. It makes me tick.ReplyDelete
