The Ambiance Of Amber Light - a collaboration with Frederic Parker

I watch the rising sun of morning glow behind you inviting my eyes to pause in soft amber light which frames your beauty warming my heart with a smile bursting the seed pods of passion allowing them to float endlessly... through my soul pouring desire into the eyes of love until they overflow and drip like dew from leaves glistening in the sun spiraling towards Earth leaving a wondrous glint in the eyes could that this moment never end nor escape into the unknown Bathed is my essence in sweet dew of dawn and wondrous is the glint that luster your eyes as I radiate morning-glory grandeur within your golden gaze of ardor whose fervent seeds sow saffron dreams wishing to possess and be possessed I reach for you surrendering in softest amber light luscious in the bloom of morn captured in the nectar of each breath taken in the heated heights of desire’s depths this moment an amaranth thrilling this twinkling of time never to fade like a distant star Frederic Parker and Susan Ashley (a collaboration) June 2, 2019 Poet’s note: Frederic, it was both a thrill and an honor to be invited to collaborate with you on this very special and romantic poem. Your tender, breathtaking artistry touched my heart and charmed my imagination. You truly inspired me with the gift of your expressive talent and golden pen. Thank you, dear poet and my dear friend, for a beautiful creative experience.
