My Olympian Lover
~ Linda L. Dowd~

While lying by my lover, I awoke to the sight,
of an Olympian god bathed in soft, glowing light,
His features were limned by the luminous rays,
from a summer moon gleaming in full lunar phase.

With delicate touch, I traced his aquiline nose,
as he lie there beside me in regal repose.
Then lovingly I cupped his fine, chiseled chin,
and felt the warm stirrings of passion within.

His lids slowly opened, revealing crystal blue eyes,
~ For he be not a god but godly man in disguise.
I gasped at his maleness and intensity of gaze,
and fell under his spell as I swooned in a daze.

Together, in cadence, our hearts beat as one,
as we vowed faithful love ‘til our last days were done.
Waves of rising passions soon swept us away,
Until the breaking hour of a dawning new day.


Love is the unifying force which integrates
one’s soul with that of another.
~ Linda L. Dowd

Lovely Linda, and those two are about the best couple you could have picked for this poem.  Two of my favorite actors, Kevin Bacon, and Kyra Sedgwick.  She's great on "The Closer."

Smartest Chick ~

...and, "as always", it was good to hear from you!

I've been thinking of both you and your Mom.

Loving hug,
Linda

Lovely, Linda!  If I rush off to sleep, do  you think I'll awake to what you did?  Always hope, I guess.

Mysterious One ~

Sharon, your response just gave me goosebumples!
Last evening, while watching some TV with my two daughters, Kyra Sedgewick momentarily appeared on the screen. I mentioned that she was married to Kevin Bacon and they were surprised and asked if I was sure about that. I suggested that they look it up on the net, to make certain I had gotten my facts straight. Well, none of us have done so.

Then today, after looking at various graphic sites for a picture of lovers to accompany this poem (oh, my! I saw some veeery interesting pics!), I came across this one. It was not identified and I did not recognize  the man and woman as being Kevin and Kyra.

Very curious! Methinks you and I are on the same wavelength.

Anyhoo, I have now looked them up on the net ~ and yes, they ARE husband and wife!

Thank you, Sharon!

Giving you a warm, hug-o-love,

Linda

Bunches of Honey ~

Indeed! 'Tis a lover-ly way to wake up in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, my Olympian does not have a brother, or I would highly recommend you, Honey!

Sweet dreams! ~ and may your dreams become your reality!

Hugs with love,
Linda

I have seen and felt his essence as well as others dressed in treasures of the sea,beginging of life all as one,as in the heavens, must stop chaos,and the conqure and divide, we must be whole, as one,  or the fire in the sky will be this earth,consumed with gas and oil, will become as another fuelling the sun~

My spirit will rise
above the sea~
There will be no drowning
of my soul or me~

WOW!!
You could melt the North Pole with this...
Much less a guys heart!
Beautiful EA!

What I used to do with one hand tied behind my back now requires every muscle in my body, cohesively.
