Sweetness #prose poem #poetry #short prose

Scents of linden trees illuminated by an old oil lamp.
The night is me.
I am the night where love delights dwell.
Shed you skin and come with me where minutes melt like chocolate on the tongue of a child.
You, sweetness from beyond the body, what can one say about you?

My book, Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings, can be ordered here.

Thank you.

    This was beautiful, sensual, and as sweet as that melting chocolate.
    Love this entire little thing.

    Brilliant.

    Be safe my dear friend.
    Continue inspiring.

    1. Good morning Drew.

      Don’t eat too much chocolate πŸ™‚
      Take good care of yourself, Drew. Stay strong. May all blessings be with you.

  3. Beautiful, Button β€œShed your skin and come with me where minutes melt like chocolate on the tongue of a child.” Very visual as always. You can almost taste the chocolate. Button I won’t give anything away but your poem, Wooden bed is so beautifully written that it easily brings one to tears. An entire tragic love story told on a page. Your book is a gold mine of love, loss and holding one’s breath to see where the path of your words take us. Just magnificent. Have a blessed morning and stay healthy. Love you J (honeybun)

    1. Good morning my dearest Joni.
      You are so kind honeybun. Your words are as sweet as honey. I am truly grateful to you and your husband for buying my book. I will always be Joni.
      I am very glad you liked that poem.
      “Your book is a gold mine of love, loss and holding one’s breath to see where the path of your words take us. Just magnificent. ” Honeybun I have tears in my eyes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don’t know what else to say.
      May you have a blessed day. May you be loved and cherished. May you receive my love as I am so fortunate to receive yours.

      4. Thank you so much Rene. I did not leave my heart in San Francisco (Although I love to visit the place. It’s beautiful). I left my heart in Miami. I buried it in the waves of the warm ocean.
        Thank you for the flowers. I got them. Be loved. Be happy.
        xoxoxo

      5. It’s easy to leaves ones heart in Miami, I’ve traveled many countries but I always return. I’m one of the few native Miamians left. xoxo

      6. Rene I was born in Europe. I traveled and even lived in different places. And one day I found myself living in Miami. I feel like I am of that place and that place is of me.
        Sending plenty of love to one of the few native Miamians left. Enjoy Miami every minute for me too. I had to leave, but as I said I left my heart in Miami.
        xoxoxo
        G.

      7. I hope you reunite with that heart πŸ’œ, I loved my home in Germany But returning to Miami was coming home 🌺 , people complain but you have to love and appreciate the diversity and natural beauty. 🏝🦜

      8. Thank you for your beautiful wish, Rene.
        “But returning to Miami was coming home” Oh, I understand that very well.
        “people complain but you have to love and appreciate the diversity and natural beauty.” I am with you sweetheart. Miami’s diversity and natural beauty are unbelievable. I spend part of my vacations almost every summer in Miami. It does not look like I can travel this summer. Will you please enjoy the place for me too?

        No sadly I don’t get your comments but I do see you like my poems…for that I’m whole heartedly thankful

      2. My pleasure. Could you please check your spam folder? I left a comment on your today’s poem which by the way it’s epic. It’s a masterpiece. Perhaps WP spammed me πŸ™‚

      3. Really….oh I’m already looking forward to read it…thank you for your kind words….they mean a lot to me. I’ll for sure check the spam folder….weird though…have you previously also written your comments on my poems?

      4. I’m so sorry. I never thought your comments could end up in the spam folder. I just checked the folder & I found yours plus some other bloggers comments as well. It’s so weird that the spam tool had thrown your comments out. My apologies! πŸ™

      5. That’s ok. You have nothing to apologize about. WP works in mysterious ways πŸ™‚ I am glad you found the comments πŸ˜‰
        Take care
        G,

  5. Well, this is the most delicious poem ever dear G. I love this more than I love chocolate, and you know what that means, right… yep, this poem is decadent bliss.

    β€œShed you skin and come with me”
    – gladly, I’ll follow your poems anywhere.
    β€œwhere minutes melt like chocolate on the tongue of a child.”
    Sigh, those minutes of pure, unadulterated heaven β€¨β€œYou, sweetness from beyond the body, what can one say about you?”
    Well, what could we say…. what could be beyond that?

    Wow!!!!!

    I am sending you a boat load of chocolate to make sure you have plenty for more poems like this. Lots of love and sweet wonderful everythings
    πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

    1. My fabulous Rachel!
      Did you receive a boat filled with chocolates and flowers? I send it yesterday. I added songs of nightingales and plenty of love.

      Seriously Rachel, you melt my heart. Thank you so much for your gorgeous words.
      “I’ll follow your poems anywhere.” Let’s go to Hawaii. Do you remember we planned to do so? There we can gets chocolates and rivers of orchids too.
      ” what could be beyond that?” You tell me Rachel πŸ™‚
      I got your chocolates and your love. I think you sent me some light form the Southern Cross too. Was that you?

      Thank you for everything Rachel.

      I am humbled by your support and your friendship.
      Yours
      G.

      1. Let’s go to Hawaii, I’m not forgetting that plan. Outdoor baths, rainforest scented body wash… chocolates and rivers of orchards. Write your poems and I’ll follow you there.

        What can be beyond that?? I think it must be indescribable. But if anyone could describe it, you could.

        I got the boat, I’m glad you got the light from the southern cross. Follow it and you will find your way south always.
        πŸŒΏπŸšπŸ›€πŸΌπŸŒŸπŸ’

      2. What a beautiful answer Rachel.

        “Follow it and you will find your way south always.” I am following it. I am following through waves and dreams; through the beauty of your poems; through that image of Hawaii where we will enjoy every minute.

        This is a hula only for you Rachel
        Love
        G

      3. Oh my goodness G, that clip is so captivating and inspiring, Tahiti…. it looks stunning. Let’s follow through waves and dreams, that’s exactly what I want to do.

        Thank you did everything, love R.

      4. I am thrilled you liked the clip Rachel. I love it so much… I switched from Hawaii to Tahiti, but I thought you would not regret.
        Love and hugs to you.
        G.

      5. It is nearly 7pm now. What time is it for you? I’m sorry you have such trouble sleeping G. Perhaps now I understand what you mean when you once said about the moon being poisonous.

        I wish I could send you a magical solution, a little wish upon a star.

      6. You are so good Rachel. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts . It’s 3 am here.
        I think I’ll go the sleep. Have a beautiful evening sweetheart. Lots of love ❀️❀️❀️❀️
