Morning Kiss (Shakespearean Sonnet)

Morning Kiss (Shakespearean Sonnet)

I taste and pace my day with your morning kiss
As your smile invites me into your arms
My desire finds you passionate for the same bliss
Your beauty arrayed in the light's charms.
In the circle of our sequestered room
Rhythmically entering an erotic fire
Your delicious kisses set my life abloom;
I am taken by delectable desire!
Darling, I loath to leave our rumpled bed
To abide in the corners and cracks of the day;
Yet we have not left behind a word unsaid
As I depart to enter the workday's fray.
Now as day reposes into starry night
Again, your lips press mine in fierce delight!

Well Hey "T"!!!!!  So glad to hear from you!  Glad you like this sonnet.  I wrote it for my brother...he used the first line on a FB post and I couldn't resist adding the rest.  After such a long hiatus my muse is bursting at the seams...I ready for a wild ride!

Passion sears through this like "...an erotic fire".
Yet, what's truly inspired is how you use the volta at the beginning of the third quatrain to part the lovers; for the duration of the "workday's fray": just to reunite them again in the couplet.
The way you marshal the meter in order to control and vary the pacing of each line is also a joy to behold.

Magnificent!

"J" thanks so much.  I am happy that you enjoyed this one.  Sonnets are a personal passion of mine...especially the Sicilian and the Petrarchan Italian forms.

Thank you so much for your insightful critique of this poem...it is much appreciated!
