~ Romantic Thoughts ~



long cool nights

snuggling under the covers

like spoons




dark stormy night

a bright flash of lightning

outlining our bodies




satin sheets sliding off

sweat-moistened skin

in a shimmering puddle




fresh from the bath

firelight licking her skin

love after midnight




emerging from the pool

clothed in promises

dripping water and moonlight




untying two ribbons

silk whispered against skin

hair cascading down

Carole, these are absolutely divine! I was picking the "satin sheets" as a favorite then read "firelight licking her skin" and gave up, they are all fantastic!;-)
