* * *


please hold me

yes, just touch my face

and if your finger's trembling?

It feels like butterflies and lace.

I won't mind at all.

Touch your lipsink teasing mine

bite like this

say "wow"

and now

nuzzle-suckling aching wet

endowed

with rough tongue's dancing trace

of there it is and there it ain't

pleasing me to tilt my head

with your hand

held

just beneath...

Make love to me

I'm whispering:

love to me

like this: embrace;

wishing we were catholic

holy water sprinkling

every hour, chiming in

as the tall belltower

sings:

love was made to me

(a gong)

a bell

is ringing, singing dawn...

Love was made to me -

I'm free

dancing in the twinkling

beneath the moon so prettily

making patterns that I trace

where your fingers once

were tunes

making me a music box

spindled,

Debussy:

the grace

Clair de Lune...upon my place

so silent

secret

unto me.


as I remember

Love.

Now you did it - that was Willow's favorite dance tune but it was good cry anyway I guess.  Lovely K, really very lovely.

a beautiful read, a beautiful tune, a series o sighs to go with creatively beautiful words like these:

"It feels like butterflies and lace."

...to watch them appear in a clip & paste even brings another sigh...now that's good writing...and who doesn't love Debussy...sigh...

Yo dear Serenity blaze,

Thanks for the lovely musical link and poem.  Being good Catholic boys, Bones and I love classical and semi-classical music.  We get a lot of it at Mass.

Love Bobby

God, I love that Debussy music!
Now I'll be humming it in my sleep tonight.
What a gorgeous write, lady Serenity!

what a grand-fine ending...

"so silent

secret

unto me.


as I remember

Love."

...to an exceptional piece of 'musical' poetry [with such wonderful
imagery (I am especially fond of: "like butterflies and lace")]

long-sustained applause!!

K,

Debussy, “Claire De Lune” is one of my favorites
as is, “Prelude to Afternoon of a Faun”

try
“Consolation” and “Lieberstraum” by Liszt
and “Traumerai” by Schuman

I think you will like them also

Thanks serenity for this very musical and delicate work, I could hear the music and was amazed by your words and rythm of your poem.

My humble love to all.

Verrry, verrry, lovely and delicate. ("endowed with rough tongue's dancing trace of there it is and there it ain't" and the Clair de Lune part--mighty fine!)

"The Moving Finger writes, and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line.."

With deep admiration for one who has the gift to assemble words so tenderly, words that throb with the heartbeat of love.

congratulations on a fine work of art ---

Grace? *S* Lady... don't you realize how your words dance, whether your feet follow or not? *S*

I couldn't even respond at first... you literally melted me. Bravo!
