bliss

in full glide, she saw my gaze, accepted it;
her perfect stillness and surrender to
the drift of slipstream’s tongue mirrored
rapture just before the climax

your breath such sweet caress, love

sunlight curled around my arm, smoothflow
wing touch brought me into perfect
stillness and a raven’s eye; i saw her gaze,
accepted it, shared rapture just before …

    i think the last line’s a cop out but i was being gentle with myself as i doubt i can write .. so went back to my natural rhythm … i’m so glad you enjoyed but don’t be afraid to say what could be better .. and thank you!
