Spring Dawn

When the silky light teases, slowly filters through the land of drowsiness, gently rippling into ardent red allure, whispers linger sweetly seductive. --------------------------------------------------------- Contest: Sapphic Stanza Number Three Sponsor: Craig Cornish

Pleased that you like it, Andrea. I also have had to go over mine again; sometimes (especially late at night) our mind accepts certain words which later on turn out to be wrong. // Have a lovely weekend! // paul

Hi Paul,, waves!! :P What i first notice from your lil verse is of course the ever appealing imagery you present but as I try to read it one more time I like the progressive intensity of touches, first silky---smoothly flowing then comes ardent strokes-- which is more passionate... filters then it lingers.. :)! wow!!//olive eloisa .. :)! I had a hard time on my verse in this form but I learned much.. :)!//olive eloisa
