Beneath


artist: Vladmir Volegov

Beneath innocence
simmers remembrance of Him
thrusting again and

again
and
again
to deeply penetrate
and possess
forbidden places.

Soft inward sighs
float in her mind
as an unconscious moan
escapes into the air
and the scent of arousal
rises.

The Meeting

In my surrender
strength is found.
Softness has a hidden power
that lights up in surrender.

Demanded obeisance is met
with melted resistance
and fires smolder and spark.
Ferocious beast meets gentle dove.

The meeting brings one into grace
and the other into strength.

Finally,
strength and surrender
have met their match.

My Cat

My cat
does not cuddle
but she hovers near in
safe harbor whilst nuzzles of
trust are bestowed on my ankles and calves.
Together, we enjoy her lurking
ritual of freedom,
admiring
my cat.

Note: Linda J. Wolff’s poem ‘Between Sunrises and Sunsets‘ using Rictameter verse inspired me to work with this form myself.
“…this form of poetry—Rictameter Verse, uses 9 lines in the poem, and strict syllable count: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 with the first line repeating itself in the last line.”

My first attempt is not nearly as elegant as Linda’s poetry, yet I love the fun of this form and shall be using it more.
