I am a soft gentle rain .....

A warm rain falling soft and gentle as
perspiration from a lovers brow
and so now let it in .....

Open your mouth and look up
to the heavens and
just imagine the taste

Close your eye's and feel the caress on your
cheeks as if my fingertips
touch softly your flesh

I can cleanse your soul but
only if you give in .........
.....close your eyes my dear
as I wash through you

Haven't you ever swam in the river
in the rain
in the summer
in the nude

And haven't you ever felt my wetness
in you
around you
becoming you?

Lower your beauty into my river
become weightless with me
while I
lift you up

I'll carry you in under-currents of magic
until we are spent
and the rain

I will limit my comment to "This is beautiful" in order not to break the spell of the undercurrent of magic your poem seems to have carried away your numerous female admiring fans.;) Also sharing it in FB

Very nice, sensuous piece here, Ed. The call to immerse oneself in another, to lose oneself in another is beautiful. I love the water imagery you've used and the image is perfect. Very well done!

Wow....this is sensual and arousing!...Not quite sure if the sudden glow I'm exuding is due to this racy piece of art, or the menopause. :)

Beautifully done.

Your poetry and pics are never too racy for me. In fact the pic you chose was just right for this piece.
