Take the ribbon from my hair

With the dawning of the day
like a fertile vine
which creeps amidst
the purple hue
of Tuscan fields
I yield my fruit
Before first autumn rain
I wait for you
Starved like a harvest moon
you come to me
Silk honey of dusk
A shadow,descending
in the cradle of my arms
feeding nectar from my lips
repeaning my soul
with  blazing fire
amuzing my solitude
On scarlet foliage-your kiss
In sleep your breath within me
~Dolce Vino~
Your fingers on my neck's nape
~Viola in concerto~

In sleep,once again in sleep
where eyelids close
to the bliss  of twilight dew
I see you

Dedicated to a great dad to our newborn...my husband

    charma, I've been reading some of your work and I'm very impressed by it, I've read quite a lot of it actually to get a good picture of you as a writer and I think you're a natural, a born poet, some of the phrasing is completely inspired and just sublime...you remind me of someone, a poet called leanne o'sullivan, and this poem in particular is very much after her style :-)

    The line he preferred most when he saw it on rough paper was ..dedicated. to a great dad etc. :).He said all the other words are like an abstract painting..but he liked it.tnks for reading my poem.
