Hushed Whispers

The very thought of your presence

fills my evening with fragrance

I am swept off my feet

by the naughty waves of ecstasy and romance

with a bouquet in my hand and eyes closed

I am eagerly waiting as the sky wears shades of gray

Come soon and paint my world with bright hues

for ….time is fleeting-all I can say


The day has been long

do not make my waiting longer

my patience has been at breakeven

may plummet and fall asunder

soaked in silken sighs

silent verses simmer

my withered soul longs to exult

drape me in hushed whispers.
