Would you like the key?
The imprint
My kisses will leave on your neck.
The blushes
My whispers will burn on your cheeks.

How should I mark you?
With a bindi or a cattle prod?
This burqa looks lovely on you,
Perhaps a diamond ring too
And a son for good measure.

But that's not your style, right darling?
I can tell.
Your eyes alight in deep space,
Glittering messengers of bliss,
Yours is the right idea-
An unlimited sense of freedom.

Sit with me by the window
And let me tell you about the April snow
That swirled and fell in the courtyard.

Classy Peach

Hello Alberta.

Quite simply, this made me sigh softly and literally took my breath away.

Absolutely.

Classy Peach

And now that I've caught my breath I've come back to read again.

Glittering messengers of bliss.
(oh see...I'm sighing again)

I'm trying to find a verbal image to spew around a phrase in my mind like this "coming up for air in ecstasy"...and that phrase of mine landed between my eyes when I read glittering messengers of bliss.

This entire poem is so seductive for its freedom at the end.

Thank you for these wonderful comments. You seem like a very sensitive poetic soul (and it shows on your work, which I admire very much). You savour imagery like fine wine. It's refreshing and delightful.
