e~the~re~al :  extremely delicate and light in a way that seems too perfect for this world

ETHEREAL

A glance, like breath on the air

as the heart stirs…

 

fullsizeoutput_f5b

 

Brief verbal interludes,

awkwardly enticing words..

 

fullsizeoutput_f5c

 

Closer, by accident or design

 

fullsizeoutput_f5d

 

Furtive look, desires entwine

 

fullsizeoutput_dfe

 

Too close!

I fear….

 

fullsizeoutput_f5e

 

Come closer,

can you hear

the gentle flutter,

inaudible utter

 

fullsizeoutput_f93

 

I want you…

No.

 

fullsizeoutput_e3b

 

Then I shall go!

Away, away…

unless you say,

“Stay, please…stay

 

fullsizeoutput_f63

 

Where is the wind,

my breath,

my mind,

like death

stops the beating of my heart.

 

fullsizeoutput_f94

 

That death should be so soft,

as my soul is born aloft

I stubbornly dispel

the looming threat of hell.

Forbidden?

 

fullsizeoutput_f65

 

For hell is heaven

and heaven be

our bodies mingled

in ecstasy!

 

fullsizeoutput_f66

 

My name, I do not know;

will you say it

soft and low?

 

fullsizeoutput_f67

 

We ne’er may meet again

this way…

Kiss me quick..

 

fullsizeoutput_f5f

 

and go!!

      1. I know what you mean Dan. Sometimes I feel like an alien in my real time world. When I step onto this arena I find so many like minds and beautiful things to share and learn. It is wonderful in those rare moments where the two can intersect. That’s a real gift. Thank you.
