Poppy Love

Poppy Love

A Poem by Frieda P



You know where I live and breathe,

enchantment in your eyes led us amid a field of poppies,

etching my skin with wildflowers I flourish'd

we languished amongst meadow's feathery pillows

moon shone upon our charm'd sensual dalliance

skies of apricot nectar loom'd brilliant as we merged,

as ethereal stars connected of our primal yearnings,

breathless, we paused in desire's transcendent
 afterglow

In your typical vein, a burst of fiery flame brings a world of color, and light, in just a few lines. There is a thundering quality within this poem that takes us into the moment. The entrance of the natural images is mesmerizing, and deeply enhance a message that you cannot miss.

Is it odd I though of the Garden of Eden? A paradise after all. Ha besides that. This was lovely. Thank you

"etching my skin with wildflowers I flourish'd
we languished amongst meadow's feathery pillows
moon shone upon our charm'd sensual dalliance"... enchanted eyes and a field of poppies will do this every time Frieda, and "apricot nectar" and "etheral stars" are perfect for merging within, around and through "primal yearnings"... Frieda, there is a sweet "afterglow" that surrounds this poem.. and we are the ones who can feel its warmth... is it ok to "sigh"??? too late already did... thanks, ~~redzone

No worries, I've been doing catch up since I got back here....
This is nice.
I tripped a little reading it at--"as ethereal stars connected of our primal yearnings,"--maybe "of" should be "in" or "with" just a suggestion...
and again at --"breathless, we paused in desire's transcendent afterglow"--maybe "in" could "inside"--these are just suggestions.
Overall, a very nice read!

LOL, that is ok. I just thinking of the flow of this piece and maybe making it smoother!
Was this poem inspired by art? The opening line had me hooked. God this story paints this really nice picture in my head! I'm going to have sweet dreams tonight! ;)

Opiates are addictive and so much so in our search for love and acceptance.

I have drowned once more in the sea of breathtaking beauty. I am lost for word. Absolutely beautiful! Your best, thus far.

Hahaha you have no clue my friend. ;-P
Losing yourself within the eyes of another person and experiencing a flash of passion and an afterglow that exceeds everything ethereal . . . It sounds like burnt passion; a relationship has been executed far too quickly and the passion has dissipated into a mere glow of what it once was. Fuel is generally a nonrenewable resource, and love is an especially quick way to burn fuel away. I quite enjoyed this, it had a nostalgic twist to it, as well as a longing to lose yourself once more.

"Burnt passion", I kinda like that...thanks so much Tai.
I kept hearing that witch's voice from OZ, saying "poppies, now they'll sleep....sleep!" Lol, I had to go there, sorry!

This is truly luverly, Frieda...you do this genre so beautifully! Happy new year and stay warm my friend!!
