The H(owl) Of The Night


The bird of worst hour
delivers an empty box of kisses.
On feathered wings with round
feathers so silent, so not even
the mice hear a thing

The bowl of raspberries to deliver.
But your lips burn with a scent of ecstacy.
Flesh shudders when your hot lips touch my skin
H(old) to hug, then kiss.

My lip to your lips, eye into eyes, bliss.
Take my love as I devour yours.
Giving all that is yours.
Wrestle down love to it's lowest core,
make you feel desired once more.

    And there she goes,
    she whistles a breath of lovely
    and down to your toes,
    you'll feel the breath of loving.

    Whistle your tune, man
    Those raspberries don't wait.
    Just wait, if you can
    But damn, to anticipate.

    Am I right? :) (Report) Reply

    A lively poem, it sounds like you've got a wild night planned. Don't forget the toothpicks for the raspberry pips. (Report) Reply

    A box of delights
    filled and empty
    when it reaches its fate
    a heart full and empty
    to balance what is not seen
    but can be touched
    by invisible feelings (Report) Reply

    When I was about 14 and had a bad case of the flu, our landlord who always joked with me stopped over. Before he left he gave me a paper bag to help me get better and told me to open it. I did. On the bottom he wrote A bag of Feel Good'. I remember laughing, it made me feel better. Silly me kept that bag until it was turned into ash during a house fire many years later. Invisible does not equal empty. Just thought you should know. (Report) Reply

    Much has to be read between the lines and the apt images have delivered the poem in our minds perhaps desiring to read about the deep levels of ecstasy of love despite the seasons and ageing of the physiques. Well written sir! (Report) Reply

    The owl of desire comes,
    Howling at night.
    Not too old to hug and kiss,
    Lips burn with ecstasy,
    And wrestles down love to the core..... Great images! (Report) Reply
