A Billion Stars⁓* (dreamily sensual)

A Poem by Richard
"

Rhyming Quatrains in 10-count.

"




Beyond yon heavens, mountains, seas, far land,
in deep, yearning dreams, warm touch of her hand.
A wind, softly as silk,
 whispers my name;
light as a feather … moist lips light a flame!

Most often it’s sad, the nightingale’s song …
this night it sings all I’ve dreamt of so long.
Sensations abound behind yearning eyes,
passion’s searing breaths, graze quivering thighs.

Adrift in the night, flowed deep through my core,
her dark, sparkling eyes that promise far more.
Caressed senses, gyrations of fervor …
her carnal tastes, I cannot  help savor.

Across my chest slides hair, dark as the night,
upon me she lays, proportioned just right …
o’ life divine, how my heart soars to flight,
as she takes me within … warm, wet, so tight.

The night sky awakens, planets surround,
in all our places, sensations abound …
soaring ethers of lovemaking’s high crest,
midst a billion stars
 two dreamers so blessed*

2nd attempt to review this poem, hopefully I won't delete it too. Richard, please PLEASE teach me to write like this!!! I love how your words just flow so effortlessly. But, more importantly...how you get such emotions across. Honestly, I read each line and the anticipation builds!...starts way down deep...just can't be contained..Your poetry is so vibrant, so emotional, so heart tugging...I feel every delicious word and thought expressed. It's like when you have finished reading an awesome book....and ya just sit back and savor all the good parts...wishing you could read more. That's what you do...that feeling of "give me more" :-) Oh I love your poetry. Thank YOU..

A amazing poem my friend. The feel of the ancient writers. Filled with powerful description and allowing the reader to feel and understand the words.
"Across my chest slides hair, dark as the night,
upon me she lays, proportioned just right …
o’ life divine, how my heart soars to flight,
as she takes me within … warm, wet, so tight."
The above lines were my favorite. Thank you Richard for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome my friend.
It's not about the perfect structured poem flowing with the most smoothing rhythm to the ears and hearts, while the beautiful enchanting images are painted inside our minds leaving the spirits to soar and dream, but also about the ability to create that deep deep... atmosphere, that special space, that private world made of two, those two spirits whom entwining into one universe, though the bodies might not be able to join in, that's the real power of this poem, Your ability to build this world of two in such a wondrous way that captured this unbearable desires and soothed it through dreaming and imaging.
Couldn't see more perfect image to make Your words completely alive, or more perfect sentence to accomplish everything love holds than this...
"Soaring ethers of lovemaking's high crest."
Very special this poem is.

"BLUSH!" 😊
Beautifully written celebration of love and of safety for the human person with another. For me the concluding verse with its quite beatific visionary sense brings the poem together so well, again, a well chosen and appropriate image

Where have you been, darlin'? It is like you dropped off the face of the earth. I found this piece to be very erotically sensual, but not in a crude way like I usually write it. I wish I could write so eloquently. I agree with Susan Capozzi about how your words flow so effortlessly. I find it to be a very poignant write. Makes me wish I was that special lady. ;) Loved it. More please! :D
