Poetic Licence

Beyond the stars are dreams,

beyond the dreams are ardent lovers.

Those who feel softness in the rain,

breath in the saltiness of sea spray

and new mown grass,

and rejoice.

Those who yearn for the softness

of ardass silk, voile and the touch

of willing skin on willing skin.

Those who listen to Diana Krall,

Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse

and hear every word and feel every note.

Those who long for the lingering look,

the first touch and deep delicious

enduring kisses.

The soft feathers of another's breath

upon their necks

and the thrill of surrender.

Those for whom romance

is a drug of choice

and poetic words the syringe

with which to administer

hope.

I enjoyed this poem and I agree.
"Those who listen to Diana Krall,
Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse
and hear every word and feel every note."
The above ladies. Amazing voices. Some of my muses too. Writer's who love life and try to understand life. Never know peace. Some like Hemingway. Fell to a gun later. Your words gentle, kind and wonderful John. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
