Undercurrents #Quadrille

grey-silver-satin-sheet

Cool air sighs
under satin drape
where rivulets of soft undulations
raged an ocean of love
still lingering
undercover in the dark;
moonlight’s soft sheen
skips on ripples, peaks and troughs
of fluttering folds on shined skin,
like laced pansies
spreading over the surface.

Quadrille ~ a 44 word verse.

Satin Sheet

imagesCK2QLXSX.jpg

Kneeling down on her soft bed, I follow my
hollow sounding, vapour trail of hot breath.
My hands hold the deep, voluptuous curves
of an ice maiden, languishing e’er long this coldest
of winters. A contradiction; how easy she melts
at the first caress, and too soon my heart aches
for the callous black ice to preserve the footprints
of yesteryear – sadly only imprinted forever in memory
– quickly they disappear in warmer times. Is it by tender
touch and passionate farewell or does the iconic
Lady of Winter, as yet unloved, simply
shake off her shrill wrap and vanish once more.

 

Silks (Quadrille)

winter leans with content patience
in white silk – clandestine
matters cannot be hurried –
a buttery drawl drags the last
overflow of beauty until
blossoms imitate snowflakes in flight,
held captive by night –
adrift but not alone –
sumptuous satin wafts breezy

 

Cardinal (Quadrille)

Quadrille poetry form = 44 words & red bird. Thank you monkey.

Sins that stain a royal perch
are preened like smooth, red
berries –
but those of the cardinal’s beatific
corvax satin
hang on staggered boughs
like broken bread fed worshippers;
high and mighty – aloof.
Masquerading aloft, he knows
where you all are.
