Due to continued work on my new book, Postcards, I have had very little time to prepare a blog. But I did want to give you guys at least something, so in a rare quiet moment, I enjoyed some play with poetry.
I like the way this work deals with three key aspects of how we visualise love, and in doing so, actually seems to cover everything from innocence to lust. Of course, these things are always personal and we don’t all see or feel the same things … what do you see and how does it make you feel (please comment).
There is much more I could say, but I think it more fun this time, to leave the interpretation to you!
Mind, Body & Soul
My soul be given to the warmth of your smile,
In sending sweet kisses to carry a while,
Across oceans and moon beams,
And many a mile,
To rest so gentle your lips.
My mind be given to the charm of your face,
In wander of gaze and lost to your grace,
Across starlight and satin,
And fine needle lace,
To hold you once more in my arms.
My flesh be given to the flare from your crush,
In fervour of flame and heart beat in rush,
Across meadows and valleys,
And mountains in blush,
To burn with passion your heart.
