Sipping Twilight

The sullen sea from my balcony mirrors gray sky 
it’s been hauntingly lazy,
raining, two summer days now.

And like the ocean, the dog days ebb,
low whispers,from an abandoned conch shell beckoning me
Come to the sea..... 
Placing pink side against my ear, 
from inside comes a hollow sound and
my small child hears the ocean captured!

Passion always seeks more
from the hearts of lovers……
The sultry breeze caresses
like your breath on my skin.
The sweet perfume of you
lingers like salt air and clings like sand to moist legs.
I'm lost in my dream
But,
in the far lavender horizon,
the ocean swallows the sun 
I'm sipping twilight and waiting for paradise.

A superb poem, Cheryl. Beautiful images. You've painted a picture of absolute serenity with your wonderful choice of words and images. I can almost hear the conch murmurs and feel the salt breeze and see the setting sun as twilight approaches. A 7 from me and a fav ~karam~
