Rise and fall

Her breath

Rise-and fall

Her chest

In the darkness, as she sleeps

I watch her silhouette

Her breast

Breathe out-breathe in

Fall, rise

Like the moment her being did

First fill my eyes

In love I did fall

Emotions intense did rise

Like a child on a seesaw

Lost in play

Up, down

Rise, fall

Love you, my darling

Breathe for me

I fall

Deep into sleep

Deep into love

I breathe

      Some of the best poetry I have read manages to say a great deal with a minimum of words. You accomplished that here with this excellent piece of writing.

      This is incredible. So very passionately beautiful. And that painting - I nearly cried looking at it. Gorgeous - the color scheme, the little details, the way she is positioned seems so perfectly imperfect... I adore this hub!

      .....simple, pure and perfect, Sir Wayne.

      It's so erotic too - I could visualize this one in my mind - and yes it took my breath away - I so do love your words here - it's great art in the making - sending you warm wishes and good energy with a nice cuppa tea and some shortbread. lake erie time ontario canada 9:59pm

      Thank you my friend. I see I procrastinated on responding to your compliment. Not intentional...just another usual brain fart! I read your poetry, so I feel completely comfortable using such terms : ))

      Ed: Thank you again! Yes, Beth is the one who introduced me to the Hub, and now my youngest daughter is getting involved.

      The painting is mine as well as a few others that I have used on my Hubs. The woman in the painting is my beautiful wife, Brandie.

      Darn, Sir Wayne, I just had to re-visit a Wayne Barrett classic as my poetic lullaby before I go to bed here at 3:04am and hopefully put me in the mood for deep sleep (REM) and erotic dreams so I wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and a tent in my bed and then drink neurotic coffee. (lol)

      And then thank Uncle Wayne - and say man that was better than viagra.

      Because these words here are like poetic Viagra. lol

      Just listened to the Yardbirds and now the party is over

      This is the first thing I saw this morning after sleeping in. Thanks to Leslie. I just had to read it again. You paint an imimate portrait so beautifully and poetically... Breathe, breath. Such simple words but so powerful. They are life, soul.... You have reminded me what it is to breathe and to appreicate a breath. and love, ad life.....

      I told you this before, I have to tell you again. I adore that painting of the woman....

      Love your profile pic too :)
