Landscape of a Dream

We lay in the garden watching
a ladybird leaning on a stalk of grass
Our eyes full of wonder count the spots
admiring the outrageous lipstick red
a shower came with a rainbow near us
You took me by your beautiful hands inside
Taking from me the wet clothes stuck to skin
You opened me like a parcel of pleasure
Measuring my stare with your own
Laying you earrings that rang like a chime
On the table, you stepped out of your clothes
And lay back into a dream, the kisses unhurried
Your hands unfurl caressing the thought of me
I had no words left to give you and so in the silence
Of a fly circling the light, I let your hands explore
I drank in the perfume of the moment
I listened to your sighs inside a melting moment,
As two join in a dance as old as time it’s self
Waking to the dawn of a constellation of stars in your eyes
And the rainbow still outside colouring the landscape of a dream.

    You paint lovely pictures with your words. There are moments when silence says more than words. When you stare deeply into the eyes of another, you may see stars or feel their soul. :)
