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.

Your poem made me smile. I have hydrangeas outside my front door. They are my favorite flower as I love different hues of blue, second to Gerber daisies and pink tulips. :) I used to live in Vermont and had the most beautiful wildflower gardens. Your poem made me think of them. There are very few things that are softer than a flower petal. Such a sweet "pretty" poem. I'm glad I found it.

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.
