Petal


Pink and perfect mystery 
to which I ply my finger, 
she ripens so exquisitely
the longer that I linger

and fluff the modest blossom
with my gentle loving hand,
teasing, ever pleasing
so that now I understand

how beautiful the flower
that yields without duress,
blooming now so fully
in the warmth of my caress.

There is a sexual tone here. This is very poetic and well-done with the diction. I like what you have done here. The rhyme is perfect. I have two books on Amazon.com: "One Hundred Sonnets, Book Two," on kindle and "Thirty Religious Sonnets." You like a copy, type the names of the books or write my name Luis A. Estable. Please, pass the word! Keep On writing and thanks. I really enjoyed your poem.

hey keith! just saw this poem in the "100 best" collection and think it's wonderful. i have to admit that i didn't think it was about a flower at all (!) so i was amused by some of the comments you received.....
