Sun spills in
through billowing curtains
so not to startle dreams
Sated bodies delight in
Sheets silky soft
nothing can compare
to this moment
that shouldn’t end
but we bid farewell
knowing we have sunlight

It’s the sharing of the sunlight and the moon lite nights that create the intimacy you so vividly describe. Lauren – so beautifully written. Virginia

Thanks so much, Ninni!
This is really nice. But somehow I’m reminded of my “younger/naughtier” days when the morning after meant hearing a, “You’re still here?” Then having to take “the walk of shame…”
Thanks, Rynna, but I’m so sorry to make you remember that…I’m sure we’ve all had similar moments, though…I hope there are no more walks of shame for you and only much love and happiness~ 🙂
That was very nice!
Aww…thanks for stopping by, Binky, I didn’t know you enjoyed poetry in addition to your love of inventing and space. But, I’m really happy to see you and hope you’ll come back again! I hope you have a great Friday, too, and wonder what you’ll be up to today! Well, I do hope your day includes lots of wine gums! Hugs! 🙂
Sunlight share! Beautifully written poem.
Thanks so much and have a wonderful day! 🙂
Ahhh, lovely, romantic poem, Lauren – I especially love the last few lines, where the waking to share the sun is as important as sharing the night … just lovely! ~ Love, Julie xoxox
Thanks so much, Julie, those lines seemed to be a hit! 🙂 Love and hugs to you, too! xoxo
you have discovered a comforting security of the universe!
Well said, thanks so much for stopping by, David!

I hope to have love like this in my life again… until then, I shall live through your words. 🙂 Wonderfully romantic and a hint of sensuality. Very nice. ♥
Oh, that is so sweet and I know you’ll find it again! ♥ Thank you so much for your very kind words! xx
Ooooh, lovely, Lauren! What a lyrical conclusion … that is just the beginning …
‘we bid farewell
knowing we have sunlight
Awww…thank you, Diane, I’m glad you liked this, too, and the ending was a last minute thought. Good thing I decided to use it! 🙂
Wow! I could see it. Almost as if I were standing there. Which I guess could be weird…lol Very nice!
Weird, Yes :), but glad it was “real” for you! Thanks for stopping by, Val!
