Let Dreams Take Flight

Entry for Jingles Thursdays Poet Rally Week 24) 
tumblr
A soft summer breeze gently 
lifts my bedroom curtain up
and I see the rising moon 
sending moonbeams flowing
like a wave across my bedroom floor
and the breath of roses 
comes along for the ride.

Bodies stirring in the soft moonlight
My thoughts are only on you my love
As you lay here beside me.
Your body pressed to mine.

Tomorrow we will be separated
as you go back to your world
and I go back to mine.

Lost to each other for tonight,
we let dreams take flight 
As you whisper my name
our two hearts entwine,
you holding me holding you
with tender touches and soft kisses
our spirits soars to 
that sweet edge of desire
me and my loving man.

  6. A beautiful moment rendered lovingly for your readers, somewhere between the sweet embrace of love and the "sweet sorrow" of parting. I especially like the line "the breath of roses comes along for the ride". Nice touch.

  10. there's always a mixed feeling of bitterness and sweetness knowing that certain moments won't last... but i think it's the anticipation for the next moment to come that makes every second in between worth the experience... :)

  20. I love the scene of the breeze lifting the curtain and exposing the moonbeam...it is a beautiful picture.

    The line where you said "you holding me holding you" was the punchline to me...well written.
