Summanus

Imagine I am Summanus

Thunder god of night

Full of dark promise

And surprise

Lingering in moonlight

Touching you

There

Reaching out with

Diaphanous fingers

Taking you to me

Let me gather you in

Gossamer arms

And hold you tight

Let my star-streaked tongue

Wax and wane

In supple poses

Over the blossom of you

And lick clean the soul

Of your body

Let my moon-body

Take yours

Mold the white heat

Of your passions

And form stars

Let me teach you

To suckle

The flow of the galaxies

from within in

For sustenance

You have known yearning

Known need

Known the hot darkness

Breeding fire inside

Let the chaos

Come

Our joining

Personified in

Aurora and comets

But first

Right now

Let me touch

The life at your lips

And hungrily kiss you

Into my eternity

  1. Almost “tsunami” spelled backwards, and almost as forceful, but in a much better way. Is “Summanus” an actual deity from somewhere on earth, or did you invent him?

  2. This poem is so freaking awesome…. I’m all hot and bothered lol

    Let me touch
    The life at your lips

    And hungrily kiss you
    Into my eternity

    That ending is just WOW…

    Wax and wane

    whew…love the intimacy this god has in store…smiles….like the floral allusion in that as well…cosmic kinda love you got going on..smiles…

  4. What comes out in your poem is so much awareness of what life can bring, its many ways of entrancement and entangling us in its arms. I enjoyed the metaphor of the celestial power bringing it all to you, wrapping you in world’s bounty.

So? What do you think?
