NaPoWriMo Day 17 Poem ~~ Love’s Embrace

Hello people! For today’s poem I’m doing something that is far from what I normally do.  Romance, yeah, not my usual stuff that I write about. Since this month is about stretching my writing, after all I am doing National Poetry Writing Month, and many think of poetry as romantic.

I thought I would venture into romantic poetry a bit. Now I have to admit, I did have some help, so I am dedicating it to that person. They know who they are.  Hope you enjoy it everyone.



Love’s Embrace

On my garden seat we sat that first day,
Looking out over the back fence,
We watched cows and birds frolicking
while we held hands.

Marvelling at the place we now found ourselves,
our fingers locked tight, as we lean into each other
not speaking, sitting in silence,
we soak up each others space, willingly, wantingly,
rejoicing in the presence of the other.

Heads touching, we broke the silence,
both whispering simultaneously,
we have it so good”, I you, you me
we have waited so long, so many months
this is now our time, to live and love.

My arm encircles you, our heads turn to each other,
we kiss softly, sigh once, look back over the fence
each enjoying the  nearness of the other,
the evening cools, beckoning us to move
look for warmer climes in which to further engage.

Our bedroom affords us the feeling of being alone
in the universe, we snuggle close, kiss,
hands softly touching, each searching to delight the other
lips on necks, gasps of sheer pleasure
the need to find, engage, to awaken our bodies.

Slowly we undo buttons, snaps, zippers
free our bodies for further exploring,
our hands roam, fingers trailing,
aware of parts that excite,
we search ever wanting to arouse the other.

Engrossed in our bodies tingles,
we fail to hear a rain softly falling,
adding to the intimacy of our bedroom,
cocooning us in misty dusk,
we murmur sweet words as we invite
each other into our most intimate of places.

The ecstasy that follows, reinforces
commitment, connection, devotion
we smile as we float on a loving high
our bodies sated, we hold each other close
whispered, “I love you’s” cover us with warmth.

We sleep entangled in loves embrace.

  3. “cocooning us in misty dusk” is definitely my favourite line in this one but there are many. I wrote a love poem too but yours goes into much more sensual depth. Excellent use of the prompt again :)
