but angelic

Her beauty

was that of neither sex,

but angelic,

perfect,

silk lips,

curved hips,

soft smooth face,

and the room warms

with her flattery, her grace,

and no matter what she’d touch,

you could feel the embrace,

even too little was too much,

everything she sees,

was like a sensual mystery,

flapping in the breeze,

paradise brushing against the trees,

and when she stood there,

fragrances from the flowers

just filled the air,

kisses would linger

and soak through her hair,

love without a care,

but she doesn’t exist,

she’s just a transparent mist.

Oh Boy! Now we have a very beautiful ghost among us.

Which reminds me, I was walking down our stairs when I felt a soft brush of something like a cat against my ankle. But I saw nothing that could have done that.

Great work and so wonderful to read.

Voted up and truly AWESOME, Joyce. Have a great weekend my friend, Joyce

This piece reminded me of the smell of Lavender that would wisp through my den at times reminding me of her angelic presence . I would take pause for a moment, lift up my head and smell and almost taste her standing by my chair. Yes indeed ghosts/spirits indeed do make themselves felt at times. I am delighted that she visits me on occasion. This is a tender, romantic piece. I so much enjoyed it my talented poet.

Simply exquisite poetry dear one. I missed this one some how, but I am so blessed to read it now. I had no idea of your extraordinary gift as a poet as well as criminal scenarios writes. I believe I love the poet side of you even more, if that is possible.

Voted Way Up across the board, except funny.

God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
