I love the feel of this poem, Richard. The rhythm and flow. The lilt. The cadence and rhyme. Yet, woven through it all is a sense of gentle freedom, like a butterfly dancing on a spring morning. There's a sense of floating into an embrace that encompasses more than the physical realm of bodies and limbs. The words are as ethereal as sunlight dancing on clouds...yet speak volumes to those with the ability to listen. A beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing this.

Well Richard, you know I cant offer any suggestions with the technical stuff..so lets chat subject matter. If I wasn't already swooning with a whisper of "you are mine".....you definitely got me with"as one, our souls began to sing"..... there is such a tenderness with this piece!!..a softness, pure delight..oh my you!...yet raging dogs of war"...such is life and the balance... but end with hope. Always have to hold on to hope.

What a beautiful lovesong, capturing the sweet moments that change our perception and allow us to see all the colors and movement rather than the dark greys of life. I can easily picture this time, the sights and sounds captured and said softly to the lover by your side. How wondrous to feel this through your words, perfect choices, like "cerulean skies" and pomegranate lips, the lushness of these moments conveyed in such phrases. Beautiful Richard, and glad to see you back again here to grace us with your poetry.

This poem is so beautiful ... it may be your best love poem yet (it's at least third place, in my book).

From the enthralling visual presentation to the smoothly flowing words, I've truly enjoyed this piece. I also enjoyed the rhyme scheme; it's consistent, but not every line rhymes, which (in my opinion) helps to add a sense of freedom, reminiscent of this poem's care-free and easy-going vibe ... it's like everything moved in slow motion as I read it (if that makes sense).

I loved the last stanza, especially the line "Cease thee, ye raging dogs of war." That line really helped to bring contrast to this piece in a somewhat ironic way.

I have no critiques to offer ... you've done great with this one.
