in the between of yesterday and of tomorrow #poetry

on my skin

the saps of lonely moons are flowing

your kisses turn and toss into the wind

my silky dress is ruffled on the bed

my stockings sigh in your wild dreams


the lovers of Verona are a myth

a flower fantasizes in my hair

in green the trees design the sky

and lassitude is hanging on the leaves


in the between

of yesterday and of tomorrow

the tempo of your kisses slows

in red your blood colors my veins

somewhere under this world of ours

we’ve learned the secret trapped

in earthen grains

    1. Good morning. Thank you do much for your lovely comment!
      May you stay safe and inspired in the gardens of love and majesty πŸ™‚
      Is it raining there?

  1. The sun just broke through. But it is going to rain almost everyday st some point in the day. Hey, it’s tropical weather.

    I will be safe. No reason to leave the resort. Stay inspired G. You inspire others. Have a gorgeous day. I will enjoy the pool for the two of us.

  2. This is just luscious. What we see & intuit when retreating on purpose from banality is wondrous and indescribable, but you’ve made clay out of language to try. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, my dear Pradita! Those verses come to me. I do not know how.

      Best to you and I am looking forward to reading your next post!
