Nocturnal Contagion Premiere Contest Winner

While it feels in the noontide, just steps through the trees, As the sky bleeds to twilight – the sweetest disease. On a walk through the maples, an itch of romance, As a warm breeze courts Eros at twilight’s advance. Just a glance woos the shivers, through come hither eyes, Nervous hands - now perspiring, by moonlight’s devise. Down a path softly swaying, then slowly a waltz, Till a feverish tango as all reason halts. Soon the knees start to wobble and vision subsides, As the world falls from focus in dizzying strides. There’s no end to the sickness on warm summer strolls, Should the moon cast its toxin on amorous souls. **12/14/2017**

An emotional journey-feel dances thru both heart and head in a swirl of all that is heart sought but lingers as a teasing promise without clarity. You captured what night has often conjured in my heart and I could not express. I have just written what I felt and feelings needn't make sense, often don't, but wanted you to know that's where this reader went while delighting in your write of poetic transportation. Sigh and poetic gratitude! Blessings ... CayCay
