Drifting

Footsteps in the grass, the breeze of the morn,
the whispers of a changeless memory …
your tongue opens my soul like a flower,
taunting, teasing with great temerity.

The color of your eyes stains the skies,
the windswept whirlwind of blue cashmere silk.
A sigh escapes and dissolves in your mouth.
You drink from my lips as though sweetest milk.

When I love, I become time out of time,
the timeless movement of the sea to shore.
A universe explodes; the next is mine,
the pearl of passion for you to explore.

Ravenous fingers are tangled in hair
as you pull me close in heated desire.
Loosening, lengthening, my body aches.
I am an orgy of nectarous fire.

The undulation of loquacious hips,
the lustful lock of legs around your waist,
the pull of passion and the pounding push,
and the look of love that covers my face.

Harder and deeper, impaled to the bed,
I arch my back and feel your pulsation.
Slower and softer, you slide in and out;
and I am lost in the consummation.

The tempest dies down; the sighs dissipate.
We are like two love-birds within a nest.
We dream of daylight and drift off to sleep,
as you cradle my head against your chest.

Values are necessary for life always. Greatest love comes from God through light into Earth. We feel this. This is really great when love is transformed into light of love of wisdom. Love glows and grows with us. This is a great write and you are a nice poet.
Values are very much necessary for us. Greatest love comes from God through light into Earth. We feel this. This is really great when love is transformed into light of love of wisdom. Love glows and grows with us. This is a great write and you are a nice poet.
aesthetic means appreciation so I think, perhaps, you might alter this line to 'and is innovative' but I like the sentiment of this poem for we seem to live in a 'throw away' society these days....when I was a child you had to make things last, everything was held as precious. My mother's kettle lasted until I left home, so at least 23 years :)
You discern in a subtle way how much commodities are different from values, even though we need both of them for everyday life. I notice that nearly all your poems end on the concentric road to God. You must have unshakable faith in God.
a thoughtful poem K.M, and I suppose true.
