A Woman Beyond Your Wildest

Piercing the mists of audacious dreams with a blasphemous air of clarity… nude in presentation of nature’s newfound glamour that it practices now with skillful veneration… A woman beyond your wildest imagination, beyond your wildest dreams and desiring hours, lies mock-vulnerable on her back in a field of dream-made flowers.

 

Her hair of interweaving hues of gold… spread like an enflamed Rorschach of angel wings, or Chinese fans, to frame her face with a call for silk-lusting fingers to hold. Her eyes gleam of sea-dyed blues and greens, though wincing slyly as if in reply to a subtle breeze. Her breasts, like two pods of honey-colored flesh at rest… half-sunken into her chest as she lay back on a mattress of floral debris.

 

Rose petals tumble across her skin… propelled by a phantom gust to scamper across her firm, golden belly and part the fingertips of the coy hand that caresses it. She beams with encircling sin… but the sin comes from you, for her body is as pure as the goddess who blesses it. This precious body, bronzed in hue, glistens… no matter whether with body oil or sun-shower dew.

 

And she listens, listens for the song of Heaven to resume… to call her back from among those floral plumes and return her to tropical dreams and their sensual ivory dunes. Even as my desire is bursting at the seams, the lure of my lyre of wooing cannot call her back from the palm leaf shade… where in minnowed shallows bronze calves wade under spells of chastity with no undoing.

Author’s Note: Another prose-poem inspired by a woman’s photographs. There’s not much else to say about this one… but see if you can spot the subtle rhyme interwoven throughout!

Dreams in the Womb is an eclectic mix of prose-poetry and more traditionally structured verse, and also explores my romantic side with a variety of dreamy and sometimes even erotic images. Copies of the book, in 6 X 9 softcover, are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as several other online retailers. Chances are you can even order it from your favorite local indie bookstore, even if they don’t physically have it on their shelves. The Kindle edition is also available, and subscribers to Amazon Prime can borrow the Kindle version from the Kindle book lending library for free.

La Dame Verte

Her smile a notch above a frown,
The subtle way she drags her gown;
Drifting to the garden tub,
Slipping off her black lace gloves.

Evening of unwinding wrath,
Absinthe and a bubble bath;
Ignorant to clock-hands turning,
Sleeps content with candles burning.

Velvet curtains brushed aside;
Sleeping, soaking, Devil’s pride;
I find her in a sultry moat,
Asleep where lotus candles float.

…Where that trail of petals led,
In the room where dress was shed;
I thought I heard her hum a hymn,
Escaping through subconscious whim.

Her eyelids twitch above her smile,
Her hair descending to the tile;
For her thoughts I’d offer pence,
Red lips hushed in confidence.

Her marinated body froths,
In body oil and castile broth;
Half asleep, beneath her breath,
She tells me romance isn’t dead.

Author’s Note: I thought I would post something besides prose, considering I haven’t posted a plain old poem in a while. This was inspired by a female friend of mine, who told me on a late night phone call that she had spent the previous evening taking a bubble bath while drinking absinthe and eating M & M’s (needless to say, I took out the part about the M & M’s).
