Eyes to eyes now meet Tenderly our lips touch We, adventurous Rhythmic vibrations rejoice When love creates little ones .

Scattered memories of lovers'flowers

drinking sweet red wine
as we lie in golden fields
never ending snogs
playing  love with wild daises
on a blanket of verses

I hold your faint eyes your desperate hands, your sigh my ego in charge hindering levitation... Savagely filled with love

Secreted Pond

                              Quixotic are we
                     Our bliss every night one kiss
                           A phantom mirrored
                       In a fervent moonlit pond
                         Like Nushi and Suseri*

Dynamic Interlude


Frolicking in song
gliding along the shoreline
the heart cry out *Love...

intimate sunlight
painted on fleshly desire
ensnare wild passion,
the afternoon falls victim 
to hot love, carefree and *Fun 

two naked bodies roll endless
in warm seductive wet sand,
with each breath completion nears
perfect *Poetry


Poet ~ Rick Parise

Contest ~ "Fun and Frolic"

Summer Butterfly

Summer butterfly
vibrant wings brighten long days
heat from your passion
cocooned 'til our love flies free
as we dream of sweet nectar

Honey Hive

Bee on white petals
warm lips sucking sweet nectar
with most loving care
protecting this wild flower
which was born to be his own

December's Melting Passion

Maiden In Red Silk,
On a Mattress Of White Snow,
Cold is Her Soft Skin,
Warmed by a Robin's Kiss,
Under a Huge Mistletoe.

"My Lips to You"

Kneeling down behind,

       my lips lower to your neck
                    and find the softness
                                 that arouses my senses

                                                 till my thoughts take over you..

Love Handles


                                   captured love handles
                                   glide among whispers and sweat
                                   into elixir
                                      beyond the breathless yeses
                                      the afternoon lost its nap

Once.....Our sweet Dream...(part 1)

Mermaid of the deep
Hollow echoes in vast seas
His warmth tames her waves
Melting ice walls block her cave
Pirate steals Her heart and tail

Tasting Bliss

Outside your window
I waited as in a dream.
There beneath your sill
whilst in my most int'mate thoughts...
Again we were tasting bliss.

Time to say goodbye my love

My chain is now frail
Damaged by your weaken link 

My venture begins 
Left with simple forgiveness 

Unwarranted departure.

Hug ME

Hug me my passion
For this night may not revert
This moonlit night
This  blossom, this spring 
May not last for ever

Caught in the Sun

I feel his heart race
His warm breath rustling my hair
My mind tells me, ‘run’! 
Then lips find mine, so supple!
Too late! We're caught in the sun!

Another Love-2

Another Love

You hold me in thrall
Charm me with your demeanor
And draw me to you
Like a kindergarten kid 
Is, by a wayside puddle.

behind weaving
maple branches and leaves,
the sky is hidden;
instead, I see stars shine
in the night of your eyes

any of the many tanka contests still possibly going

Evoke loves passion

Breath love into me

Enter my world just us two

Evoke the passion

Let us rise and fall as one

Finish what we have begun...

Orange Roses

In the roses' glow you ignite me - warm fingers stroking, stoking me until heated buds unfurl their fire-flushes of desire. Molten petals flare - a furnace of flame fragrance scorching like lava combusting in the burning heart of a blazing bouquet.

Life of an Ice Cube

Natures gem solid Cold, now taken in my hand Her back in arched shape To her nape, warmth slowly melts Witnessing trickles running Down her spine it flows Curvaceous sighs quivering In hungered view, I Retrace it's path to her nape Fingers now cold in excite .
