Silk and Lace

A spanish seteset or sextilla

photograph compliments of pinterest 




~~~

Pillows of silk, whispers of lace

and with the dawn gently I trace

the tenderness of your touch dear

Soft as the curve of you and I

warm as the sun rose in the sky

light as a breath, you held me near

 

Two hearts tethered in harmony

delicate threads surrounding me

in the rapture of your embrace

Every secret exposed and gone

nothing between us, floating on

pillows of silk, whispers of lace

~~~

Author's Note

MsJewel
The sextilla, or Spanish sestet, is a type of sestet (6-line verse) that follows a set rhyme pattern, and each line has 8 syllables. The rhyme pattern can be either aabccb or abbacc, but you must use the same rhyme pattern if more than one sestet is used in the poem.

This is so well-crafted with a gentle sexiness & affection that is palpable. It conveys a lyrical sense becuz of your excellent word choices, paying attention to sound as well as meaning. This scenario would be my wild guess as to the meaning of the word "sextilla" (before I read your clear explanation, which is helpful).

Julie,
Your words have a whispering softness to them. The lovers need no talking their sensual drama is played out in knowing the needs and pleasures of each other. Your poem portrays this wonderfully.
