Serena Blackinton Poems
Rest your body now, my love,
And dream of things to come,
A kiss upon each cheek I'll give,
Caress you with each thumb,
As I cradle your face between my hands,
And gaze into your eyes,
And when my lips descend to yours,
You will finally realise,
Just how much you mean to me,
And how I've felt all along,
If any talent I possessed,
I'd turn these words into a song,
So I could sing you off to sleep,
With a soothing lullaby,
Hold you tightly in my arms,
As your spirit takes to the sky,
Dream as I hold you so close, ...
The sky swathes her with its sapphire intensity,
As iridescent clouds drift randomly above.
A benevolent sun beams from behind complacently,
Her whole face is aglow with the consciousness of love.
She unfolds her towel on the warm, dry sand,
Inhaling a deep lungful of the refreshing, salty air.
Gentle waves splash down where the water kisses land;
She holds a smooth black shell retrieved from there.
The summer wind converses with the trees all around,
