Silk and Lace

A Poem by MsJewel
"

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.

Very sensual, is this about 2 females? I'm asking because there isn't any masculine imagery. However, there is feminine imagery throughout.
Anyway, I like the form, and I like how you explain in your notes. It draws attention to it, so the reader can see and appreciate the technical aspect of your work~

:) ............... now i have to get it done ;)
Very nicely done, although for its inherently delicate qualities rather than the formality of its presentation. The delicacy of the poem matches the delicacy of the lace.

You're welcome.
You have a wonderful way of creating a mood and gentle flow still within the structures of a particular style of writing. The mental images are tantalizing and the photograph fits perfectly. Beautifully put together, Julie.

Thank you my dear friend :) Julie
The "sextilla", eh...? Thank you so much for educating me with brilliance... Adored this, as it mirrors my favorite "twisting" style so very well... Succinctly penned...

Thank you for your kind words :) Julie
sometimes the softest, sexiest material is that space between skin...when lovers meet and find that mutual attraction that draws us to a sweet touch.

Thank you Jacob :) Julie
Rather wonder, which came first the picture or the words? Such seductively happy words with just that hint of visual 'inspiration'! As ever been, yet another great golden star!

I think women are the only creatures that the more they take off...the hotter it gets. Got me sweaty.

Thanks for stripping #@!! I mean sharing.
