The Blessing of Life

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Candles lit imbue soft hues, space within the edge of light,

walls enclose with gentle notion and hold the world at bay.

Silken sheets and pillows like clouds entice,

bodies warm and supple approach, the electricity surging,

sparks emitted searching the tender touch of anticipation.


When at last hands find mark and follow the contours of being,

hearts soar with relief, surrendering to passion.

Minds dissipate in a torrent of vaporous pleasure,

thoughts replaced by the needs of love, complete submission.


Lips touch, each cell attuned to awareness, sharpened senses,

deeply probing the source of ecstasy, overwhelming adoration.

Falling to silk, bodies writhe in rapturous bliss,

no words able, no gesture enough.

Eyes searching the soul, the essence of being, reality opened,

unshielded and offering life itself to each other.


Holding tight in desperation of this at an end, they become one,

entangled in rapture, bodies pleasured like rolling waves,

the tides in succession, faster, the moon in stop-frame full to crescent.

Beads of sweat like diamonds form, bodies in blissful excruciation,

the rising of senses, candles flickering, frantic searching.


Until, like an explosion of release, the love takes flight,

upward, soaring into the star-filled night, breathless.

When minds find cognizance in the shallow pool of exhaustion,

eyes meet and souls embrace, knowing that love has conquered,

life has been blessed.

Juicy word choices here and strong imagery.

If anything, less words would suite my taste better. Less words might provide for more explosions of release in the thalamus, if you get my drift. Just a thought. Enjoyed this. Peace.
