Love

Textures of Love

Leonid Afremov

Unblemished and reflective

like the smooth passion of an August morning’s lake

— sleek-n-sheen

 

Silky sheer moments

water logged kisses

drenched in soap foaming moments

rinsed in passing cloud bursts of steamy refrains

 

The texture of our love

 

Toned skin

full lips

wet

the beat of our hearts whispering yeses

 

Our being in the season of the sense of touch

 

Unblushed complexions

Pampered

Perfumed

Softness

Unpolluted

Vivacious

Lustrous

textures

 

— of us

    Sensual textures that slip through the imagination like silk. “Our being in the season of the sense of touch…” liked that much.

  4. Henry, when I opened this and saw the image, I almost didn’t make it to the poem but when I did, I found a match in beauty and texture. To me, this is a perfect example of how to write “love” tastefully, that is, without excess. I wish I had written the poem and painted the picture. Thank you so much for sharing this. Victoria

  5. I love this whole section: “drenched in soap foaming moments rinsed in passing cloud bursts of steamy refrains.” Loved the “s” and “sh” alliteration at the beginning. It was all very steamy. 🙂
