Dream Another Night Away #Valentine #DuetPoetry


She is in his dreams dancing lightly across his sighs

closer than a whisper warming his heart

waking his need to dance with love

they dance to the soft sounds of night

spinning with the stars above and the lights in her eyes

***

Desire awakening with each kiss

perfection in each fluid move

finding endless hope in cosmic display

lover’s plight to only meet at night

days spent dreaming of the lover missed

***

Their rival daylight

in darkness ecstasy takes flight

tantalizing essence mesmerizes and captivates

lovers intertwined in a feast of senses

exploring the infinite horizons of joy so right

***

They revel in a world never fraught with pain

seize one last lingering kiss before dawn

walking in a daze until they dream another night away

eyes close reminding him of

stormy currents turbulent plains

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Both you and Sean are very well suited, I think 🙂 Great duet, really enjoyed reading it, sincere and touching in its delivery, they’re so much fun!! I think I’m addicted to them now!

    Great Tanka, and a moment to say thank you to you, and Brian, Gay, Chris, Adam, Pete Claudia and Jessie for hosting one stop. Our names would be glimmers of stardust without you.

  3. That was tantalizing. I had to read it twice, and then again. The very words themselves intertwined like lover’s limbs. It was hard to know who was who. Superb.

    And charmed by your tanka. Nice to meet you too.

Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal.
