12:23

Moonlight plays
Amid the shadows
Along curves
My fingers long
To trace
As you sleep
Breathing peacefully
Smile teasing
Your lips
I still taste
Salty sweet
Memories lingering
On scented breeze
Lost in dreams
While I watch
My heart aches
To fall head first
Into your eyes
And see forever
In your embrace
Consumed completely
Refilled with you
A sigh escapes
To sleep content.

You're on your way, my friend. Read poetry - as much as you can - good, bad, mediocre...just read it.

This is the beginning of a beautiful pursuit. Did you show her?

Brian, by George( who-ever he is ), I think you've got it! Splendid, m'boy! I can send you some poetry books but your library should have ample supply...

Tom said...

Say, a couple of really really great posts, here and yesterday...!You are turning into quite the poet.

Brian Miller said...

@kay - smiles.

@AB - been a while since i tried my hand at poems...this one and the one last week were the first in years...was fun to play.

@subs - if i see George i will tell him you are looking for him. lol. never as good as your lines, but i will settle for a pale resemblence.

@tom - coming from the man that spins words like hurricanes...i will take it. ty.

Beautiful poem, Brian. You seem so happy and at peace.

subtorp77 said...

Brian, just remember with free verse, rhyming isn't required. It comes from with-in. Just let it flow out :)

*sigh* That. Is. Beautiful.

Candie Bracci said...

wow!That was so beautiful Brian!!!:))

Heaven said...

I see you are getting the handle of writing sweet poetry. From writing short stories in blog format, you went into long prose. Enjoyed the entries with your kids and family as it flows out easily from your words.

I want to graduate into writing other things later on (outside of love and intimacy) but I don't have that many "interesting" life experiences to share yet.
