The speed of the night .....

Spent lovers curl up together perspiring
dreaming of each others tomorrows
As he snores lightly she breathes shallow
and forgets yesterdays sorrows

The night watchmen dozes fitfully at his
desk listening to the sounds of conditioned air
His wife alone wakes from a night dream
and chooses a new color of hair

All the young men throw beer cans in the
bonfire and brag about the girls
While the girls comb each others hair in
nighties inventing new curls

For me .....I love the speed of night that alters
most of life to slow dances
Listen ....listen to the night sounds ...watch the stars
the planets take their chances

In the night an hour can take forever
and a moment last a day
Where imaginations play with cravings
and turn dreams into fore play

Dream-scapes ....a playground for
those who yearn of secret places
Visions of soft caress of cooing sounds
and the taste of moonlit faces

I have always loved the pace of the slowest night ......

Ed,

How do you get into my head? This is awesomely beautiful and a I violently shook my head in agreement through it's entirety. I too love the night, that is where the magic is, the magic of passion or the magic of sheer relaxation... it's like your one stop shopping center! :-)

Lovely, and it is so true. Night can be such a slow time and gives space for reflection.

Your words are always inspiring! Lately, I feel like you've been pulling the thoughts right from my head. I'm stressed to think I'm behind on some of your hubs... but I will find myself over to them! Thanks for writing about the wonderful things you do!

I don't know where all that expression of feeling comes from. What most ppl inexpressibly feel, you seem to naturally and easily put into words. I am always impressed, never disappointed and always a little turned on by your work. Don't stop. :)
