100 DoRaM: Day 78 – Poetry: My Beloved’s Blanket

I know I’ve written some poetry here.  I love writing it and I have even collaborated with a friend.  I’ve been writing it since I was very young.  I do have some journals filled with it. (Thinking about publishing some of those here.)  I thought I’d explain a bit on how it works for me.  I am mainly about the fiction, the stories, but poetry…

Poetry is a very personal format to me.  I can’t write it or rather I have to be inspired deeply by something, someone, an event or a place.  I have to be moved for it to pour out of me.  If you see it here, it is because I have been moved deeply to write it.  I don’t really edit or change much.  I let it be.  Just as that which moved me to do so is set free in me.

Of course there’s music involved! LOL.

Unlike the fictional stories  that can just breathe on their own without connection or reference, poetry is connected. Love is the principal connection.  At least for me that is how poetry works.  And yes, love is my favorite subject to write about… to experience. Of course with love, there is always someone connected to the very design of my poetry.  Breathe sighs…


My Beloved’s Blanket

Under the blanket of your love
The world is a hue of twinkling stars

Under the blanket of your kiss
My heart sings a lullaby’s sweet caress

Under the blanket of your touch
The universe moves on love’s design – my body surrenders

Under the blanket of your affection
My soul travels the most tender journey

Under the blanket of your words
I am comforted, supported, encouraged… loved

Under the blanket of your thoughts
My dreams float in infinite breathe sighs

Under the blanket of your soul
Prayers whisper my existence into bliss

Under the blanket of your body
My core dances, quakes and explodes in ecstasy

Under the blanket of your care
I am strong, unafraid… courageous

Under the blanket of your passion
Sublime jubilation adorns my soul – I’m soaring

Under the blanket of your skies
You embrace me lovingly from all harm

Under the blanket of your existence
My mind is overwhelmed… with the beautiful gift of YOU!
