exquisite tentacle

my palm slowly shapes into a flower
attaching itself to you
you soften to it, letting it wrap you
tentacle of wonder surround us
I peep with one eye
and see you do the same
mystical scent permeates my skin
slipping over yours
taste of you tempts me to explore
so much more and more
exquisite limbs hold us both
grounded on the earth even though
we are in the seventh heaven

"when our inner essence speak
do we need any language?"

"My palm slowly shapes into a flower", a wonderful image inviting me into the poem. what do i read in your poem/ that there are many languages, some not ones that are spoken.

I like the detailed connections you make between images such as flowers and tentacles. It makes this very powerful.

Linda Jacobs said...

The first line is my favorite but I also like "you soften to it." The images are just exquisite!

This reminds me of a country song. The name of it is "You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All." It talks about how there are no words needed when the love is shared, and felt, by both.

BEAUTIFULLY written!
