Sublime love

Updated on May 19, 2012

On a sultry Summer night

with silks adorning my body

you come into my chamber

and gently brush my hair

away from my eyes

I raise my coy face

to gaze upon your countenance

sensing your breath

increasing its rhythm

as each love filled moment passes

Your arms embrace me

and there is a rising passion

like white water rapids

gushing through your body

making your skin flush

and you kiss me softly at first

but then with more purpose

You lay me down

on scented sheets of satin

An open window

allows the flow of a steady breeze

to stealthily intrude into our room

There is but enough moonlight

to show the shadowy curves of your arms

shining like sculptured marble

as they hover over me

in love’s protective charm

You kiss and cherish me in silence

as you journey

from North to South

becoming one with my spirit

consummating our love

once more

in sublime ecstasy

Knowing that such an act

is a communion of souls

an understanding of minds

playing to the rhythmic sound

and synchronising beat

of loving hearts.

      Well! Maria, as the sign in 'Let's talk music..' directed to this Hub, I was wondering as to what treasure is to be found. Hmmm..I see this is one night out of the Arabian Thousand Nights, and a princess with 3 Sheiks contending for her favors! What can a poor Saki, like me, have to say on this occasion? 'Can I pour out another glass of drink for the gathering?' :)

      @ mpoet7 - Many thanks for your appreciation. Yes I agree with you that Vincent should turn his sublime comment into a Hub.

      @ Epi and @ Vincent - I'm sorry but I am lost for words. That's right - this poet has been struck dumb after reading both your sensational comments. Thank you so much gentlemen. You are both an inspiration to me.

      A picture comes to mind, like a Rudolph Valentino dismounting from his Arabian horse, opening the tent to his waiting princess. There she stands majestically beautiful, long black hair flowing and glistening as it lays across her buttocks. Her olive skin, and liner black eyes, sultry as her look reaches his.

      Her ruby red lips show her whitest of white teeth as her moistened tongue slightly licks her waiting and wanting lips. Her silk and lace covers her cleavage yet reveals her inner beauty and emerald studded naval. Her thighs also reveal her hour glass curve that is so enticing to her hero who stands before her and pulls her tightly to his chest.

      They both feel the heat of each others wanting bodies as he quickly places his fingers on the candle wick and both fall to the floor entangled in each others arms. This wonderful piece Maria reveals the woman in you and the man who is lucky enough to hold your heart and soul in his hands. You put together quite the Sublime Love in very precise artistic form, Bravo, well done my poet.

      ...(taking a long breath) ...... okay here I am - again - let's see if I can come up with something - on my own - which sounds sincere and original and not forced and sounding like a skirt chaser - okay here we go:

      In a brand new ep-man top ten words to describe Maria's new poem:

      10. symphonic

      9. breathtaking

      8. sensuous

      7. (like the title suggest:) sublime

      6. artful

      5. tasteful

      4. romantic

      3. evocative

      2. Mariamarvelous (new word specially put together for this occasion)

      1. cinematic

      (Your words painted a cinematic tableau in my mind set to beautiful music - I heard John Barry and yes at the end of this piece I was left breathless and isn't that what lovemaking is all about - and I love making my mind go free when reading your words in this fabulous ode to lovers everywhere .....lake erie sizzling because of you and time is endless for words like these (10:20pm)

      ..gee that Cleaner is the consummate ladies' man and a real hard act to follow - I feel like an eunuch compared to him - I mean what do I say - what can I say - when he has said it all - well there is only one thing to do - take my act on the road and find another comment space.
