Image result for virtue dies

The redolence of tropic garden orchids A hush of tender whispers in my ear The tang upon my lips of your amrita A tingling on my skin as you draw near Your fragrance is narcotic to my impulse The sonance of your voice, a drug divine Your taste, a sweetened opiate, inviting And velvet pelt, a thing of grand design Please ruin me with essence and aroma Destroy me with the music of your sighs Consume me with the flavors you desire And feel the rapture ... as your virtue dies. Written and submitted on December 14, 2019 For the "Smell Sound Taste Touch Repeat Sense" Poetry Contest Sheri Fresonke Harper, Sponsor.
