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 ...

Tilting Towards the Sun

summer solstice
day of  abundant light
tilting my head  towards the sun
fires of passion  burn in my soul
warming my heart new awareness
my roots grow deep, reaching for you
dreams grow in a field of yellow gold
darkness fades, opening blue skies
swaying in a breeze I think of you 
smiling brightly...

Through the Glass...

 can  you  see  me
concealed  identity 
 no  reproductions ,  uniqueness 
Not To Be Reproduced, 1937, Rene Magritte
 wearing  my  suit 
 past  the mirrored  image 
 revealing   myself   just   for  you
we  touch

Thirteen Moons

Thirteen  full moons enchantment dwells
heavenly glow filling darkness with light
irresistible allure falling under your  spell
rare blue moon,  sparkles with delight
tides of emotion tender hearts swell
eclipsed with clouds veils pearly  white
engaging magic, captivating stories to tell
night of wonder, amazing dreams take flight
mystical moon, songs of the conch shell
orb of luminous light,  glowing bright
overflowing cup a sip from the well
nature in awe  beguiled at your sight
sun at daybreak, bidding you farewell
