Touch

Touch

              It felt 
           botanical
        just laying here
           beside you,

              peering at
            anticipation
                   as it

            bloomed within
      the trembling notes
           of your fuchsia
                  smiles..
 
           I had to carefully
         wait for the moment
       when you would close
                 your eyes..
 
             My only intention
         came without practice,
                the art of how
         to feather my fingers
            prior to soothingly
                   brush your
                       cheeks..
 
          The ranunculus softness
                      of your skin
                         woke me....
 
                      I knew then,
                 that I shall never
              be able to fall asleep
                             again…

Reminded me of Rumi this...and so I leave you with his lines to say beautiful write.  Travellers in the same same journey...

"There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of Spirit on the body.
Seawater begs the pearl
to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild Darling!" Rumi

My Dear Friend Merrill,

It is amazing to me, that I found someone who has also ingested the beautiful music by Michael Hoppe. I guess birds of a feather, stick together, because from the moment I met you, I knew our souls had a connection.  I now respond to your beautiful poem, with one of my own.

In sleep I gently touch you, but the softness of your skin;
Makes my eyelids slowly flutter, my awakening begins!
I try returning to my slumber, but my mind is too aware;
For even if it's only dreaming, I am so happy when you're there!

Peace and Love,
Larry xxx

I believe dreams do come true if we haven't lived them yet, and if we have then it's a memory, one we want to relieve, so we dream. I have to say though I wish my dreams were this beautiful or that I could make them sound this beautiful. You have a gift 😊

Hmm haven't lived them yet, I am thinking about that because in that case, I will be waiting for this dream to come to my reality 😊

As do you my friend, I love your writings😆

Our mind is a powerful weapon and if we think hard enough we do get what we want. If that dream is meant go be it will happen. So keep thinking and dreaming 😊

This is so fluid and a delight to see. 

I hope that I can write as vividly as this some day.
