Eroticism Of Inspiration Premiere Contest Winner

In swoon ‘neath golden moon and sable sweep let bathe with hues upon my canvas soak romance a mingle, brush and pigment sweet, enrapture me your passion’s hungry stroke explore an aura, fluid colors blur imbue the skies of empty eyes a soul, in deepest purple daubs a midnight stir as lover weaves a dream to make me whole caress the edge to fuse desire and shapes lay a layer one atop the other a throb of contrast, feelings free to traipse, smoothing over yearnings with a flutter starlit glaze and silky graze artistic awaken chroma crave for drama shades, mood’s aglow, aroused and optimistic before the painter’s lusty palette fades.

Dearest Rhyme Time Friend once again your winning poem draws me into its romantic spell under the stars with "deep purple daubs" and "pigment sweet." Your words paint the ultimate picture of the sweetest "caress" of the lover! Your poem is so rich and lush and elegant. Words are your paint brush and serve you well poetry sis! Sending you blessings in starlit graze! The artist in you emerges alongside your poet dear friend and you blend the two perfectly!

"caress the edge to fuse desire and shapes"..... Wow, how beautifully you have conjoined love with art/painting. This sort of a harmonious blending of art and romance is possible only for a poet of your high sensibility, Susan. Phrases like 'passion's high stroke', 'painter's lusty palette'.... all are telling images. Definitely you stand at a high plane as a poet. Congratulations on your podium win in the Marathon contest....

Dearest Susan, I so enjoyed reading this jewel again and basking in the reflected glory of your high placement. It's hard to believe you haven't time travelled from the golden age of classic poetry to the present day. To quote the comment left below by our dearly missed Winged Warrior (RIP), "Your poetry goes beyond the realms of beauty". It just can't be expressed better than that. Congratulations and hugs ~ your PoBro.
