Envy of Mornings

Pristine moon
Guides eager fingers
Numbs senses
Fuels desire
Fragrant in erotic lust
Warm to icy touch

Stillness entices passion

Desire opens lips
Exploration in hunger
Smoldered love
Naked night
Envy of mornings
Empty sheets

The form of poetry here is the Shadorma. Having its roots in Spain, this sestet (6 line verse) follows a syllabic pattern of 3-5-3-3-7-5. I’ve been one to experiment with any form, so here I have combined a shadorma and the reverse of a shadorma (5-7-3-3-5-3) using another 7 syllable line.

Shared at the Thursday Poets Rally, Week 42 (April 21 to April 27, 2011) and One Shot Wednesday at One Stop Poetry.

Thanks for the recognition. I accept it along with this entry and also nominate Paulami for the Perfect Poet award for the coming week.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
