Alison Cassidy

Tantra

Like waves against the sand
Your breath ebbs and flows
Cool lips brushing the lids of my eyes

Like waves against the sand
Your breath rises and falls
Warm and salty against my throat

Like waves against the sand
Your breath opens the shell of my heart
And drinks the tenderness within

Like waves against the sand
Your breath corkscrews deep into my belly
And our bodies join and become one

    I love reading your poems. The theme speaks of merger of two entities as if through 'yoga'.

    A ravishing and tantalising delight. Is there the low, lush violin strings being swept in the background....Vivaldi is it? Yes, plenty of rhythm, indeed, and well-balanced, too. Nice sensual presentation.

    I liked the evocative rythym in this poem Alison. Could feel the waves.

    I read through enjoying the steady rhythm and imagery and reach the end feeling seduced. I think you accomplished what you set out to do with this one. Great poem! ! !
