In these quiet places …


Come, let me pull you gently into our quietness,

where wonder has etched the loveliness of

your softly alluring "take me" eyes

permanently into my hopeful,

azure blues,

where the dawns rise silently ~ gently

to mist our early skies with gold

before surrendering...

on unto the day.


Let us entwine our ever-willing, hungry fingers

in quiet, reverent solitude...

to stroll through boundless amber fields,

where wild stalks of wheat in training

learn to weather life's gloriously

gentled breath of creation,

waving as one together

at all awe-struck

passers-by.


Let me know you in your quiet stillness,

as I have known you like soft waves

fondling the excited shore, while

You are siren, I am sailor...

where the all of us is

~ Eternity.


Let me love you in your calm moments,

that I may know it is me your loins

open in aching hunger for, and

it is for me your eyes close

when your sighs breathe

and flow softly down

o'er me from your

lusty throat.


Then, in the solitude of this time, Our time...

embraced in these hushed surroundings,

let our souls meld into matrimony,

with no clergy or witnesses,

....and....

in these quiet places, let me be

the sole reason your arms,

your moist lips, and

your world

exists.

This may be a bit too long for some — it is my shamelessly-exuberant pen I blame it on … LOL!

Constructive critique is always welcome. : )

Great writing richard, words taking one on a journey to celebrate the potential and value of the human person-for me the key line is "let me know you in your quiet stillness" I think its psalm 46 where we find "be still and know..." the stilness and quiet are what we can share and enrich for anotherperson

Richard,

This free verse read to me of a story, yearning for an everlasting love. Your words paint a picture to me, of a dream like setting, full of soft, gentle imagery throughout.
The smooth line breaks, only make it a pleasure to read, through my novice set of eyes.
While I agree, the length may be too long for some; to each their own, in that aspect.
Our pens will sometimes take us on these long, wondrous journeys that only prove to be so rewarding in the end. The proof is right here, My Friend, In these quiet places.

Thanks for sharing ~ Paul

both are lovely (from 2016 and 2017). i feel the first is ... "more soft"! but the second has more "rhythm" (or may be is just the way i reed them!)
I think they are beautiful!

Sweet like the soft whisper of winds soothing the skin....

I liked the way you have described the union in a sacred manner....

Being the reason that someone is is such a romantic yet destructive concet. This love reminds of a dream. Old school with a new feel

Beautifully penned.

Only thing I'd add is quotes around "take me eyes" (or some other delineation) had to re-read a few times to understand the meaning (thought it was a grammatical error, at first).

Otherwise, lovely heart-felt and smooth write.

I enjoyed it.

Much love,

LR

"let me

This is sensual indeed! I like the emotions here, if the need, the longing one feels when desires creep in.. And then you can feel no one except for the one you would love to be with.. It truly is an amazing piece!
