Uriah Hamilton


Sleeping Breath - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Hours before the dawn,
The soft moonlight seeps
Through an open upstairs window,
A blanket is tossed from the bed,
And a woman’s glorious nakedness
Is proud in the kingdom
Of uninhibited dreams.

One imagines heaven
To be an eternity of golden slumber
Where a woman’s chest
Rises and falls
In a restful rhythm
While her sleeping breath
Fashions invisible kisses.

Unspeakable joy
Emanates from every desire
To gaze for uninterrupted hours
Upon her ivory shoulders
Gently brushed by brunette hair.

    simplicity of desire
    lost in dreams
    wanting to be made real
    upon waking

    beautiful

    This is really beautiful, Uriah, especially the second stanza. '...her sleeping breath fashions invisible kisses.' This goes beyond simply picturing a lovely woman. It is nearly mythological.

    unspeakable joy
    such an emotion
    perhaps 28 years ago I tasted a bit of it
    must be more than a soul can grasp
    but you seem to have well expressed the feeling
    giving a poem which leads the way

    Yeah, you sure loves them women, Uriah! May your dreams come true!

    (ps: Tell me how you deal with the toothpaste and are-those-dishes-clean-enough issues and stuff in the daytime. Do you have a secret there too?)
