+ Fav Poet


There she stands 
Centre stage for all to see
Tall and slender 
Precariously she balances.

I reach out for her
Draw her to me 
My hand skims her body 
Slowly reaching her skirt.

Playful fingers find hidden areas
Delighted her legs spring forth
Displaying the very beauty
Of her delicately adorned skirt.

Gaily she dances around
Dizzily twisting and turning
In the brightness of day shading
She gently tends to my needs.

Personal ballerina takes to toes leaping
Merrily bobbing up and down
As emotional to her performance
Clouds cry a thousand tears for her.

Reaching our destination
Slightly shaken, she leans
Watches me quietly drips
Against the wall.

Reminiscent of the day's fulfillment
We acknowledge one another silently
Restful knowing we shall be
One once more.

    Oh how delightful, many thanks to all who have stopped by or commented my write; this is the first time my writing has literally won anything and feels quite a milestone - despite having being recognised as a winner in other contests with other writes. I cannot express the pleasure of being read and the thrill it gives me to write knowing it brings some pleasure to people. I have still much to learn in the poetry market with regards to writing and strive to try new things. Thanks all. Anna-Marie
