Through the lungs
From the pulse
Across parted lips
In reverence of
Spread before him
For the first time
For the first time
The Lord’s Kiss
A 55 word poem for dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Form For All: Fifty-Five Shades of Grey
wow…that is some kind of passion…the use of lord, introduces wither heirarchy or a religeous experience, either way it adds an interesting element…
For those who get the reference of the last line, it is some kind of passion indeed. Thank you, Brian.
I think you took “Fifty Shades of Grey” and gave it a twist!
Ah, but what an interesting twist, no? Thanks Margaret.
Sensual, hot and romantic all at once. Loved every word.
Thank you, Nara.
A very hot write! Nicely penned.
“In obeisance”…is this the sweet surrender or a carnal taking? you leave me with unanswered questions…and that’s an element of good poetry in my opinion.
Why thank you Ronald. Some carnal taking requires sweet surrender, and I’ll leave it at that.
Really seem to introduce ambiguity of physical/spiritual adoration–John Donne seemed to do that as well, as I recall. Provocative,
I am not familiar with John Donne, I’ll have to look him up. Thanks Gila.
Really 55 shades literary .. My screen burns ..
* Big grins * Thanks Bjorn.
St Therese of Aquila statue? I always thought that one was full of double or triple meaning.
Marina, I admit I googled the image for reference and the first one I saw gave all the answer I needed to understand your comment (http://wp.me/aPury-10i). While not the inspiration for my write, it can certainly apply to the Bernini statue as depicted. Like my 55, it is full of various meaning and I thank you for a new bit of knowledge as well as your comment.
Wow, amazing coincidence – I was sure that the statue at least partly contributed to your inspiration! Great minds think alike and all that…
Thanks Mama Zen.
I thought I had commented last night…I sighed at the end of this…sexy and spiritual at the same time..
Thank you Katy! I’m glad you came back to read again and to comment.
Steamy and sensual…!
Well done! To take the passionate theme of physical consummation, and turn it into a metaphor for spiritual communion!
Thank you Samuel.
Very nicely penned!
I just love how this style of writing makes you stop and thing
Loved your passionate 55
