"Hey, Kate... this has been done!"... yeah, but I cross my heart I wrote it, word for word, yesterday! Weird, huh?! Must be all the red meat we're eating! LOL Kate xx




DAYBREAK


My fluid flesh is woken
from a heavy drowse;
It's still dark, but a songbird
heralds the new day.

Our bed is an ocean where,
in these drifting moments,
I float like a downy, curled feather
carried by waves.

Skin gathers and tightens
as love's breath seeks me out.
Passion's silent rhapsody tunes me
taut as the string of a bow.

Within your encircling arms
I am so slight
I could be nothing more than imagination;
Yet it's my pulsating energy that fuels us.

Mute rhythms turn to thunder rolls
as the symphony drags me under;
Surfing the seabed
I am drenched in quicksilver.

I journey towards the centre of the earth's core
whilst exploring subterranean caverns
and searching the Halls of the Mountain King;
Then I swallow the orchestra whole...

* * * *

In this moment I am reborn,
fresh and as new
as the shimmering daybreak -
glad that you are an early riser...

I love the hook of the last line on this, Kate. Beautiful romance spun into a universe of expanded thoughts and emotions. Truly evolved passions flavor these delightful, image packed verses.
Take care,
Sherry

Yes Kate, it may have been done before but never in such a way as you do it. I can almost feel the afterglow of morning passion in your heart. Very well done and very enjoyable read. Thank you for lifting the blinds a little.
