Nelumbo 'Qianbanlian'
"Thousand Petals"
Photo by Eiji Nitasaka

By Handsum-Hart

As I sat inside
The snow-covered library
At the University of Switzerland,
Looking through the archives
Of the National Geographic News,
I came across a flower
Called a Qianbanlian;
That has 4,000 petals

And with me
Being the romantic that I am,
I said to myself
"I shall make mind-pleasing love
Unto my lady on our wedding day
Using this flower"

For on our honeymoon night
I shall place it betwixt her bosom
Then pluck its petals, one by one
And with each plucked petal
I shall tell her, in tender voice
Why I love her

And after I have told her
In 4,000 beautiful ways
Why I love her,
I shall lie her upon
These love-stained petals
And make heart-pleasing,
Husband-to-Wife love unto her,
As I whisper into
The ears of her soul
"Beautiful lady, forever will you be
My 4,000 Petaled Lover"

Very romantic, senusal, and passionate, Ron. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 4,000 of them to be exact. This is a very beautiful picture of sensual romance, and soft erotic passion for the woman you love. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peaceon earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), sister Barbie

Nature is wonderful. I'm afraid that I'd give in to my lust long before 4,000 words, if I could remember that many.

Metaphor for many, and.... patience.

Symbolic and as usual, very romantic. Thanks for sharing, Ron. Blessings to you,
