The Age Of Summer Love



Our summer love began in Gemini with sultry eves of wooing escapades, and as the moon did swoon as it drew nigh my lust you stirred with strumming serenades. Romance as rich as black queen tulip skies adorned with precious gems of bijou light, before they’d lose their lustre to sunrise you’d shower me with diamonds of the night. Impassioned kisses filled my sails with love, a rhumba full of rapture neath the stars with rhythmic teasing, undulations of unbridled flame of Venus and my Mars. The time of Libra brings a cool to days ~ still, autumn love sets aging leaves ablaze. May 15, 2018 *(Black)Queen of Night Tulip: a velvety deep maroon-black tulip*

Like Yazmin, I am also a Gemini, the first line had me gripped! You do sonnets so well, you take on any form, like duck to water.. I like the rhymes in this and the flows... An excellent sonnet that incoportes two star signs... I seem to attract a lot of Virgos' for some reason, not Libra lol..
