Touch me with your sensual fingers
through the layers of blue pleasure.

Look at me with your sensitive eyes
that know the murmurs of my soul.

Travel with me through the odyssey of delight
through the mountains and valleys to mysteries cave.

Taste me with those surrendering lips
the heat of my trembling body so near to you.

Hold me through the fields of delicate daisies
as we discover new meanings of mystery.

Dance with me in misty fields of red poppies
that sweeps us off our inner calm.

Feel the exhilaration of my desire as we skip
through all masks of social propriety to our essence.

Take me with you to your abundant dreams where
your wild imagination knows no limits.

Undress me in the rain as it wets our dancing skin
and we erupt in the passion of moist abandon.

Surrender with me to the rapture of erotic passion
that releases the wild woman in me, the wild man in you.

Tango with me as we banter and play our creative fiddle
of our intellectual and emotional chemistry.

Serenade me with your song so sweet
that only your lips can sing, my enchanted love.

Embrace me to your chest so that I can listen
and breathe the power of your beating heart.

Breathe me so I can know the ecstasy of
a connection that moves from skin to core.

Engage me with that part of your heart
that is hidden and deeply etched.

Let go with me so we can know the depths
and play of two inner children who know spontaneity.

See me with new eyes through layers of blue
passion to the silent still voice.

Ride with me on white stallions into the crashing waves
of life’s adventure to the depths of ocean’s truth.

Trust me with the vulnerability of your soul
so together we can heal our wounds.

Respect me with your beautiful mind
because I honour and respect you with all that I am.

Release with me the damages of the past to
pave way for the alchemy of the future.

Contain me with your love that is bold
and made of the fabric of courage.

Fantasize me, cherish me because sensuality starts
at the skin, travels through our veins to the heart.

Ah sensuality – a touch, a taste, a sight
a sensorial journey of absolute delight
that starts with first touch, first thought
with a heart that overflows and is caught.

Sensuality is the perfect partner of love
and together there is power and there is passion.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

    That one word that implies that which seems to have been left out on purpose: the spiritual connection between people expressing their own and revelling in each others’ sensuality and love. Perhaps because that aspect can’t be shown, it must be felt, or perhaps because its fundamental to it all and the people who know that, feel it without having to be told.

    Very artfully framed. Beautifully written.

  • Amen.

    Yes Ken you have identified with such insight and grace the spirituality that connects two people together in love and sensuality and that is what my Amen was about. I also agree that spirituality must be felt and cannot be seen. Your comments are always so thoughtful and insightful and a pure joy to read my friend Ken. Thank you.
