Lovely Suppositions

i have kissed beneath summer’s sweltering fragrance your array of spackled decay in lovely gardens; sweet roses weltering plundered and plucked; an incidental lay beneath your satin I have run my fingers, trembled as famished breasts groped my own; your mellow poetry still lingers imperviously enriching - and when i try to kiss another i feel your haunting roots encroaching my tingled thighs and i shake beleaguered by your lavender; heat shoots through laboring reeds sprouted mistakes pale panhandlers passionately proposed then by your tender i’m awaiting... (so you suppose) 4/8/17

Great poem Phillip, you are on the right track if Charlotte puts you in first place. I am always intrigued by your work, although I usually have to read it two or three times to get it. (sometimes I don't)

this contemporary sonnet is so good on so many levels; a layered write with great use of language, alliteration, and the end rhyme so natural and organic that i barely noticed it! "spackled', unusual word there, i thought it was a typo, but no...thank you for entering such a superb piece into my contest, and congrats on your 1st place win!
