Allure

Allure ... resting in the alacrity of mesmerized breeze
Captured early moments in pillowed desires to please
Cherished futures ride the wings of erupting dreams
Clouding spheres of fortune in yawn of dawn beams

Lyrics of innocence dance in velvet curtains of sleep
Sheltering emerald reflections of love passages keep
Cradled embrace tossed in throes of tangled thought
Stretch to the warming rise of imaginations caught

Yearn of learn sparkles in first kiss of morning dew
Rested between lips of quiver dividing horizon's hue
Breath of hibiscus song nestled in whispering spoon
Blossoms to silken caress where fantasies are strewn

Birth of silence lingers between the walls of delight
Grasping at freckled constellations lost in the night
Flickering aromas blaze the winds of untried time
Whirlpooled in resistance to noon's spiraling climb

Beckonings of promise swelter in passionate musk
Taunting dismissed shadows from yesterdays dusk
Harmonies of midnight administer a loneliness cure
                                                                Bringing
                                        us full eclipse
             to tomorrow's

Allure ... resting in the alacrity of mesmerized breeze
Captured early moments in pillowed desires to please
Cherished futures ride the wings of erupting dreams
Clouding spheres of fortune in yawn of dawn beams

(Big Smiles) It is wonderful almost enough just simply to see your name here amongst us, but it is also very very good to know that you have placed this particular poem here for submission into the anthology because of your most creative word associations that you've combined throughout this poem speak volumes of your talent and your smooth as velvet style of writing poetry. Again, it's Great to have your back with us, God bless you my friend, and it's my opinion that 'Allure' will make a marvelous addition to the book.

-Bob

Stretch to the warming rise of imaginations caught

You always do. *S* It's about time you moseyed back in here, alluring one. *G* Bringing a poetic beauty with you was expected... and you didn't disappoint. *S*

Only trouble is... if it takes a book project to slow you down, Ron's gonna be horribly overworked cause we'll nag... ya think you could find a computer more often? *S*

On another note, if you don't have Feeling's dictionary and want one, let me know. *S* I'm apparently victim of blonde moments... I have two... and one for each eye isn't working well. *G*

Mark, I am not familiar with your poetry, but am completely awed by this piece. You definitely should be in the book.

Outstanding writing and I am on a quest to find more of your pieces ... hugs for peace, Marti
