King Sun and Goddess Sea

One summer day, enraptured by the Goddess Sea, King Sun shone down with all his might; most splendidly he moved the Goddess, for she rippled laughingly a shimmering reply to Sun in azure sky, and while reflecting that same hue where King Sun dwelt, her turquoise ripples lengthened, for the goddess felt herself now rising up with joy. Wave after wave was leaping, frothing. . . as King Sun more strongly gave his final rays to her. Then he descended low that he might kiss the lovely Sea on earth below - to kiss her soon before the last day’s shadows fell, and so he touched her where she’d let her body swell. With yellow gold, his final glow, he bathed her face, but when the night arrived with sable colored lace to drape the goddess, Sun had vanished from all sight; below Sea’s depth he’d sunk - to love her through the night.

    WOW my friend! You have taken the theme of nature and turned it into something sensual and erotic...LOVE the concluding 4 lines especially and I can't help but wonder if they had any offspring? That could be another series of poems! Congrats on your 1st place win - Tim.....PS: I see that you are a member of 'Whispers' too? I read your St. Paddy's Day poem and left a comment - Tim
