Scent of Rosewater

Artist: Georgia O'Keeffe 





















white waves
  delicate rose in a foaming sea
    ocean petals soft and moist
      he came, to dance with me

  dream  beads laced across the sky
    under heavens canopy, hearts speak
       moon tides rise and fall
         dancing cheek to cheek

white waves
  rosewater scent clings to wet flesh
    love blossoms in the midnight air
      in a woven net our souls mesh

loves purity in a strand of pearls
  illuminating the heavens far and wide
    poetic words spray across pink lips
      swells of emotions grow deep inside

white waves
 rising rhythmic cadence of the sea
  ocean petals, fall with each breath
    I came, to dance with him..

posted for Poets United..I missed the prompt on waves
so my entry will be shared today. Thanks for reading and
have a lovely day.

  5. There is a lovely feeling of being chosen in this a bit. To be danced with. I like the echo in the first in last stanzas, changing it to choosing to dance with him as well. Nice bit of rosewater Tru.

  6. The images here is true romance.. you have chosen the similes very well. The rosewater and pearls especially. There is a sense of repetition, but just like the waves might look alike they are all different.

  20. Meeting equally creates much magic--nets turn into pearls, dance turns into communion. Very sensual.
