Summer Love

      Give us a multicoloured dawn when all the world is still asleep. 

Enthralled we search for lips with earnest greed in passionate embrace  

             Before the sun arises and our love like dew dissolves.


Silence, when day has gone to rest and moonlit sky takes centre stage.

  Whisper; while in my arms I hold you tight within the summer night.

      Love me, as gentle fingers pluck the vibrant strings to my heart.

Could be a slight resemblance to telepathy! Still, "Poppy Fields Forever" would be a suitable compromise:) // paul

Some 2 weeks ago I dreamt that I read a poem of yours called "In the poppy fields" or something similar, but when I checked it did not exist!! Strange...!?

Thanks for dropping by Linda. You read my mind...was thinking of paying you a visit...you know I can't stay away from you for long:) Yes, I have been/am very busy...I tend to take on more than I handle at times, but I still have to learn how to say "NO'! Will be back to you..:) // paul

Thank you Elly! You read me well, especially those "hot spots' in the second stanza...those were meant as a poem within a poem (for those who read and search!) // paul
