And What of Night?



And what of night's smooth shoulder
when the lace falls to the floor
and all the under aching
can account for nothing more
than need
and breathless dream
beneath a canopy of gold
and newly dewing kisses
ferment my fantasies,
untold?

And what of poetry?
  that speaks so simply
    with such feeling

Meadowmuse, this is so delicate, open, yet secretive. Nice writing.

Meadowmuse,

Nicely done.  Limited subject, not wordy, and VERY well thought out. My compliments!

Claire~
What a combination of dreams memory
and waking anticipation this render is.
My, how elegantly you muse.

Claire this is so lovely...all your poems read like a soft sigh or whisper to me...
very nice...very.
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
