Free Verse # 306 (of annihiliation)

Her flesh
a sea of moonwater,
light flowing liquid
in supple waves;
my poem
a ship of jasmines
sailing her white curves
for all eternity.

~

Amid her ribs
my poem made nest,
at dawn and dusk
with the birdsongs it rises
brushing her wide eyes,
in halcyonic waves
flooding her chest.

~

The bird of fire
made nest
in her eyes

~

His lap
the seabed
forever welcoming
her gushing waters ~
her supple flowings
and wild temptests
held forever
in his fervent seat.

~

Wrapped around her neck
the breath he weaves
in the silence of his heart

~

He longed to kiss her
the way a fig in autumn
bursts open full of sun

~

Her skin
a field of flowers
vying for his touch,
clamoring restless,
burning fragrant lust.

~

He touched her in places she didn’t know exist.

~

He touched her,
she moaned,
and night itself was a river
gushing from her core.

~

We existed to the extent that we were annihilated in each other.

~

In his palm
she folded her dreams
yet each fold became a sky

~

Bathing her skin
night grows incandescent
as if lit from within,
itself a spring of light,
itself a fountain of grace.

~

I feel her in my bones…
autumn wind stripping
silence to its core

~

Sadness
in her eyes dwelled
like clouds
in a summer sky

~

Dancing
with the infinite shadows
cast by her hair

~

Folding her into me
as she unfolds,
each breath,
each quiver,
each heartbeat,
a poem grown wider
than the face of the sky,
a womb more fervent
than the sun of life.

~

To have the curve of my tongue
burning all the poetry
into every curve of her skin

~

I am a living well
gushing forth endlessly;
yet with her I am a sea,
a sky without end.

~

Photographer unknown
Photographer unknown

His touch
bathes her
in a sea of light
