I’m mesmerized by the colors
that dance across your face
as flames carry out a jazz recital
my heartbeat meets their pace
Your eyes penetrate
with a hunger that feeds
You touch me with your thoughts
fulfilling all my needs
Wrap your warmth around me
with soul, body, and mind
and touch my lips so gently
to taste the sweet, sweet wine

A beautiful poem full of life and love Lauren. And I would love to be beside that fire; its very cold here again.

Romantic, intoxicating, simply lovely, Lauren…

Very nice Honey….that’s our fire place…..luv you!
Thanks, Honey, and we need to have a fire tonight, too! Love you, too!
Another good one!
Thanks, Dianda! 🙂
I love this “romantic stuff”, you know! Really love it!
I’m glad you do, Caddo, and as you know it’s my favorite, too!
I wish I felt a little freer to write the “steamy” ones–I’ve only posted one at CV, early on; it didn’t seem to go over then, and I dare say my readers wouldn’t care for it now. Maybe if I announced I’d gotten married, that would work?! Maybe I need a 3rd blog…. Have a blessed weekend!
As lovely as your heart and spirit! Awesome Lauren…just awesome!
Aww…thanks, Wendell! Your comment is as awesome as you are, too! Blessings for a wonderful weekend!
Wah! Wah! Whee!
Not exactly poetic – but you know what I mean Lauren 🙂
I love especially that phrase – “a hunger that feeds” – all in all, a lovely poem that celebrates togetherness in all its essence.
Luv and hugz,
Oh, I think your words are quite poetic in a “smiley” sorta way! 🙂 Thanks so much, Eric, you really made me chuckle and I actually had a visual of you jumping up and down, yelling, “Wah,Wah,Whee!” I’m going to remember this, you know I will! Seriously, though, I truly do appreciate your feedback, always! Luv and hugz back to you, too!
Thanks so much, Geo! 🙂
So beautifully expressed, Lauren!
Aww..thanks so much, Peg, I hope you are well! Hugs back! xx
Thanks so much, Diane! ♥
There’s nothing like snuggling up in front of a fireplace. Some heat, not necessarily from the flames, a little wine = Heaven.
You’re right, Sandra, and you definitely made me smile! Thanks for your comment, my friend!
