One Shot Wednesday....


.
.
I Sense Your Presence....
When I SMELL Lavender.
FEEL a warm gentle Rain.
SEE a Romantic Moon.
HEAR a Lover's refrain.
But my arms are now empty, and the one sense I miss.
My Raison d'Etre...
The TASTE of Your Kiss.
.
.

Nice use of all the senses. Fun poem. If you get a chance, come on over and read my poem, The Haven, which also uses the senses, but in a quite different (and possibly more senseless) way. Love to know what you think.

Funny, but yesterday when I was cleaning out a "hell hole" in the house I found a little purple silk pillow filled with lavendar and something else nice I can't quite put my finger on. I was ready just to toss it, thinking it would not hold any more scent 2 years down the road. But it's still wonderful!

Smells, tastes we love -- what blessings.

Mr G...this is really nice, but I just do not hear YOU reciting these words...or even WRITING them. But good...GOOD!

I read somewhere that the two scents that turn men on the most are pumpkin (cooking as in pumpkin pies) and lavender. Clearly whomever can bottle these will make a fortune. This is a great sensual piece. Thanks for sharing. Gay (beachanny)

you know whenever the moon is in a poem I smile.

I think the moon from the beginning of time has had that romantic effect on lovers

Nice One Shot

G-Man, you ol' romantic devil you! No wonder the ladies swoon over you. (I'm so jealous!) Nice work!

Nessa said...

Very romantic and hot and it reads like a song. Lovely.

Akelamalu said...

Well, well, you old romantic you!

The kisses in old films used to be so chaste didn't they? Tight lips and no tongues! ;)

Glynn said...

I felt a swoon coming on, so I grabbed the lavender smelling salts. Mistake.

Nice one.

Dulce said...

All senses are fired up in this poem, G-Man. Great romantic lines. Says so much in few words.

Claudia said...

PattiKen said...

Wow. G-Man taps into his romantic side. Who knew? ;-)

Kavita said...

OH MY!!! I just wrote a poem on similar lines... and now I read this!! But I will be posting mine only tomorrow.. will DEFINITELY leave another comment here with a link to my poem once I post it, so you can see what I meant when I said "similar" :)

Loved your poem, G... it's sad, but beautiful! How the senses crave for that love... (sigh)
It's amazing how we thought about this kinda together.... brr...very scary!
