Adam’s sin #poem #poetry #published

a canary sings
nuptial interludes
your flesh pays its tribute to some other lovers
transitory birds
come and go like seasons
noisy V-shaped flocks
i sigh
then i listen to a monk who reads
from a book of psalms
rings sleep on my fingers
arabesque designs shiver on my skin
pastel sunsets whisper in the winter’s sheen

i walk through your dreams
soaked in poetry, baptized by your verses
your heart adorns my chest
(work of ancient minters)
your lips burn my rings, and with them my fingers
agonizing wings toll bells in the air
i go for your veins, my hands rip your shirt
everything’s a dream
at the edge of silence
mirrors sleep and grin

you’re forever mine!
do you think i joke?
here’s the silver coin which can get you off

that’s what i thought
you would never take it
in the lovers’ bed monasticism’s asleep
a cat purrs on my thigh
your eyes become my eyes
my skin tastes like sweet pie
see, why Adam was so keen to sin?
for hidden in deep waters
You is always I
even in a dream

    This gorgeous thing was as wonderful as a sweet dream. Plenty of images painted here.
    “Soaked in poetry, baptized by your verses” What can I say about this line. It resonated deep inside of me.
    You always make careful use of every word; as if you plucking each one from your poetry tool shed.

    Beauty such as this poem, will cure anyone of their insomnia.

    1. Good evening, Drew.

      I am thrilled you liked the poem. Thank you for your sweet words. They made my evening sweeter!

      “Beauty such as this poem, will cure anyone of their insomnia.” Does that mean that my poem put you to sleep? 🙂

        Nicely written

  3. Good afternoon G,

    Oh, this was beautiful. I believe I already commented on this one, but it is much like that Sinatra song, “love is lovelier the second time round.” In this case reading this was lovelier the second time around.

    Will return to read anything else you have posted this week, a beach awaits.

    Have a gorgeous day.

    1. Good evening Drew,
      Thank you so much. It means a lot to me.
      I hope you are enjoying every minute on that beautiful island.
      Have a fantastic tomorrow.

  4. I love it how the details you select perfectly set the tone and feeling so much that I am immersed within your words and absorb the feeling. I ended up lulled into this dreamy state, so that the you and I became fluid even for myself… How could Adam not benentirely intoxicated, how could he not touch something so infinitely beautiful?

    So beautiful dear friend. Happy Friday to you and love and hugs to you always, any day, all days xoxo

    1. Thank you for your beautiful comment, Rachel. But then what can I expect from a talented, beautiful, and generous soul like yours?
