Poetry From The Heart:
The ripples of a river play music in the night
as twinkling stars flirt with others in paradise
like flickers of life wishing to escape to earth.
Shadows of darkness instigate eerie characters
an essence of mystery threatens nightfall’s epochs
of childhood terrors in total blackness and alone.
Bats dance to the stream’s curious band
loner’s seize luck for capturing a meal.
Raccoon eyes tease lovers watching the heaven
as embraces trigger a taste of wet lips and emotions.
A person in the moon provokes spirits in the area
bids a fever for tumultuous beats of various moods.
Coyote’s broadcast desires and thirsts to appease
their nightly quest to pursue an expected chase.
Romantic flatteries leave whispers of sweet nothings
echoing in winds of pleasures and excitements.
A mist lends damp denim and cottons
cooling temperatures from body heat and skin.
A slumber plummet’s an indulgence of satisfaction
a stillness hushes exhales and motion movements
bestowing peace like a tranquility on earth.
A couple lies together under a dreamland of bliss
in anticipation of another nocturnal evening
together in a paradise of love and nature.
