Craving a Drink in Summer's Heat

Sweet Summer, 1912, John William Waterhouse











sweet   days  of summer she longs  to  relax
lying   by  the fountain she craves a  drink 
romantic dreams, time slipping through the cracks
ah the thorns of  love , roses of  blush  pink

fresh   water   to  cool her burning  desires 
exposing herself,  yearning  for  his  touch 
in waves of  heat  who knows  what   will   transpire 
fanning  lustful  thoughts , a  heart  beats  too   much 

composing a  sonnet , two souls  entwined 
lingering  moments , parted lips  soft  sighs
lost  in the  green   oasis  of her  mind 
sinking  into  pools of his  dark   brown  eyes

traveling   far   beyond  the  garden  gate
destiny  awaits,  what   will   be  their  fate ...

  25. Greetings Trudessa,

    There be magical dreams
    Your words, it seems
    Bring forth thine desire for drink
    Musical prose to make me think
    Beyond the gate
    We shall wait
    For a revelation
    From loving determination.

    Thank you for your poetry
    I doth truly see
    Dancing lines
    Blessed times.

    Magical, peaceful wishes, your way,

    Geoffrey the garden gnome :)
