Pastoral Passion

A soft caress, a whisper
a quiet joy in life
Serene sun-drenched meadows
holding lover' secret thoughts
in their wild-flowered furrows.
Gentle winds ever so lightly embracing lovers
wrapped in passion's
silken blanket.
The rhythmic song of the cicada providing
an iambic melody for lovers' yearnings
Floating clouds creating a snowy ciborium
above an arborean altar
Whilst lovers partake of each other
in aphrodisiacal rites of adoration.
A soft caress, a whisper
a quiet joy in life
for their world is at peace
as they lay entwined
safely,
in each other's arms. to fertilize barren fantasy.
