Flames

Flames

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer

Flames,

softly dance,

keeping time with our shadows.

Your touch softer still,

than your whispers to my heart.

Mornings come and go,

the good mingled with the not.

But the keeper of the flame,

erases, all, but,

the embrace of our love.

Such a beautiful, heart-filling picture you've selected, Cherrie🥂

I love romantic poems -- especially, those that metaphorically speak to the core of sensual desire and tenderness of the heart.
Yes … like the fireplace flame, once lovemaking is sated to a flicker, the enfolding caress of memory's warm afterglow burns eternally.

Love it, Cherrie ⁓ Richard 🍃

I love reading your poem & pondering all the ways to interpret "The Flame" . . . for me, it's the blessing of having been born with unstuffable optimism for pressing onward despite difficulties. We each have different flames that keep our hearts warm (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You don't get much love in January, well, not unless you live in a hot country.
Romance in the snow, just don't work.
Build a fire though, that would do it.

Ok, open a bottle then, on the sleigh.
You depict images of the candle and its dance so well and the romance that comes with it and from within.

thank you Andrew :)
The words, sweet, gentle and wonderful.
"But the keeper of the flame,
erases, all, but,
the embrace of our love."
I loved the above lines. We, who are the keeper of the flame. Must speak sweetly and remind our love. They are the reason we are alive. Thank you dear Cherrie for sharing the amazing poetry for love.

Gee
We spend chilly summer/ autumn evenings outside with the fire pit blazing,. Fire fascinates me, watching the flames dancing and the embers glowing is mesmerising.
Good afternoon Cherrie, enjoyed your words.
Hope you are well

All warm and wonderful

This is beautiful and touching, I love a good love poem. From beginning to end, every line is great art. Return some phrases of which I am quite jealous.
