On Sacred Ground

Love's Stirring Place

On Sacred Ground

Meet me where the wild wind whirls tightly bound
In lavender woods, upon sacred ground
Find our secret place, saved inside love’s dreams
Beyond our broken paths and tear streaked streams

The enchanted forest will adorn us 
With bows of vows love has sworn us
And once protected in branches of grace
Sacred ground will allow our first embrace  

I have felt your tender touch in dreams before
With incantation’s kiss pressed to explore
I am yours, beyond mere words’ recital
With affection’s expression, real and vital

Hold me with hands that understand my needs
Melt into me, until our strength recedes 
And I shall lie quite still, with sweet surmise  
To feel your heartbeat through your gentle eyes 

Behold the new creation you have made
I replay pleasures where your soul invades
Life resides in me, perfect and profound
Lay me down, for more soft, sensual sounds
Here - in love’s stirring place,
On sacred ground

Hi Jill...Oh wow!  I am so honored!  Thank you!  I am such a soppy, sappy romantic at heart...lol...and this dream just spoke to me...I even put in lavender color in there because I love the color purple and a forest just seems so romantic for an enchanted love to be consummated in its magic. Thank you for letting me know this one spoke to your heart.  That is such a compliment...Keep the dream alive with me, Jill.  Love is everything.  xo Love n Hugs

Oh my gosh!  Thank you so much, Jill.  I am putting together a love poetry collection to publish with my publisher next year (spring 2020) and I will definitely put this one in there then.  That is the greatest compliment.  I worked on this one for quite awhile last last night and it spoke to my heart and hoped it would affect readers too.  Thank you!  Yay!  Love n Hugs

Hi Al.  What a wonderful compliment.  Thank you.  I would be honored if you would have it sung as a ballad to Celtic Music...I am so happy this one spoke to your heart.  Do not give up on love....You never know what life has in store for you and be open to God's plans in your life when it comes to love...and when least expected.  ;) xo

Thank you, Marion!  ;)  From the supportive comments I am getting so far, it is really validating to me because I worked and reworked this one late last night, and I felt emotional about what I wrote and hoped it would reach others as I intended...so bless you so much for telling me!  I am working on a collection of my love poems to publish and I will put this one in it.  Thank you for letting me know how you feel about it.  ...and I agree that anyone is lucky to get to be loved, and in the right way with the right one...and sometimes the best is saved for last....Love n Hugs, xo ;)

Stunning, Cheerie. Stunning and beautiful...stunning, beautiful, and  passionate...stunning, beautiful, passionate, and brilliant...stun...OK, I'm running out of superlatives, and my brain hurts, but that is an amazing poem! 
OMG, you're amazing. You keep coming up with new, beautiful, romantic writing every time. Some of those lines are just incredible(lavender woods, tear streaked streams. Awesome). 
That is beautiful, and from your sweet, wonderfully innocent-ish, mind, tastefully sensual. 
Gorgeous writing, Cherie. (I haven't seen so much 'Pin'-ing since I visited the Muskeegan Needle Factory). 
New favorite! 
Love and hugs, 
Matthew.

Hi Matthew.  Thank you!  ;)  I am so touched today by the comments I am receiving about this poem.  I envisioned this scene in my mind and tried to convey the beauty I felt from it....I am so in love with love....lol  I enjoy writing of the force that gives life meaning.  I wanted to create a safe peaceful place where love is welcomed to express itself...an escape from this world.  I love the way you described my poem as tastefully sensual, as I was hoping to make it a sacred and beautiful loving moment and not in any way tainted to be anything less.  A new favorite?  Yay!  I am truly honored.  Love n Hugs, xo   Cheerie ;)

My Dear Cherie,

The moment I first saw you
And you gently took my hand
I looked into your tender eyes
As we entered the Promised Land

.
In this secret place, our hearts met
And our Souls purest love had found
Now we will reside here for eternity
On our blessed "Sacred Ground"

All my love,
Larry xxx
