+ Fav Poet


Her feet fly, skirts billow skimming night hours; The world is dimmed, his heart skims in a trance. Struck by her beauty, down sparkling showers, Beckon'd her to his arms for his last dance. Fingertips scarce touch, her his soft eyes glance. Then swirling on wings divine love is born; Bedew'd feet dance till the night is worn. Her teasing toes imprinting tiny charms On heart aflutter, riding with the morn; As desire swarms folded in circled arms. .. For the Contest :"Incurable Romantic" Sponsored by Kim Morrison

    Hi Gauti...thanks for stopping over to read some of my latest works. Always a pleasure to hear your impressions...Now, onto this Last Dance poem...It's as tho you etched a perfect date as it crescendos into one steamy moment of imagination...Nette will be bedazzled with your words! Gotta say my most favorite image is the lovers swirling on wings as love is born...magical and mystical too! Love, Gwendolen
