you read me like a book

tenderly stroking the cover

ƈ

lightly caressing each page

before you go to the next one

ƈ

your breath warm

the air thick with desire

ƈ

you’ve memorized

every chapter

every sentence

every word

ƈ

now it’s my turn

to read you

  1. Like a book
    each time I turn a page
    something wonderful
    grabs hold my heart
    and reminds me how much love you hold

    #5lines

    • your light shines out
      when your book is opened
      bringing warmth and love
      and much happiness
      to all who see you

      i love you, Junie. ♥ thank you ♥

  2. “now it’s my turn

    to read you”

    loved it.

    fantastic……

  3. So romantic and sensual, lovely =)

  4. “Now it’s my turn to read you”. Cool! I love all the various takes on this prompt…..

  5. Let me start off by saying I don’t know much about criticizing poetry, but I know what I like. I clicked on your link and said to myself ‘not a haiku, I don’t get haikus’ and that is true. I am in awe of the people able to do them, but they’re often just too short for me (like having a book snatched away after only reading the first page).. And I found this! And it is awesome! Beautiful! Even more so since I was expecting something short and… To me, and this is a very personal opinion… strange! I’ll simply say it again… Beautiful! Thank you!

    • thank you so much! ♥ i often wish i had named the blog something else as i don’t only write haiku now. in my humble opinion, all art ~ written, visual, musical, etc. ~ is always subjective and “i know what i like” is the only way to go for me. i really appreciate your visit and too kind comment. ♥

  6. I love your take on the photo~ Very clever of you! Well Done~

    • thank you, Ella! ♥ it took me a long time to know where this was going ~ in the end the prompts determined it all. i’m grateful for your visit and too kind comment.

  7. It is funny how it happens like that! I know when I struggle a bit for direction I usually end up with a better poem. Funny, how the process unfolds~X

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
