Dancing In The Moonlight

by Kate Demeree

I hear your gentle breathing deep into the night
Behind a velvet curtain, tangled with starlight
Close my eyes, to view you there behind the door
Hiding in the moonlight flitting across the floor
Dancing in the moon beam at the bottom of my bed
Smiling coyly each time I turn my head
Every time I view you, each step you take
Sweet silver water, gathers in the lake
Slowly coming closer to nibble on an ear
Trailing soft wet kisses you take away the tear
Tasting of the honey as it sits within the comb
Smelling of the laurel, the fresh and fertile loam
Asking for surrender, giving sweet release
Bringing outer turmoil while granting inner peace
I hear your gentle laughter echo in the night
Drawing back the curtain, welcoming the light

*sigh* A certain feeling of inner peace enveloped me when reading this thoughtful, touching and vividly created scene....

What a great mixture of nature's romance coupled within the dwelling. Great work....Jack:)
