I lay my head down


I lay my head down 
On her sweet scented tummy
Rocked by her breathing

What delight it is
To rest there so close to her
A hand on my neck

Far away I heard
A nightingale’s song for us
As I closed my eyes

Slowly she relaxed
Then drifted off into sleep
As the moon watched on

I wondered if love
Was ever so beautiful
Or precious as this

  7. The tone alone feels like a restful sigh... And then the images and scents the words bring to mind make this poem such a soothing piece. Just precious, Robin. ♥

  10. I missed your light eroticism on my travels. Good to be back.
    And, no, that is possibly as good as it gets.

  12. I think the fact you dare to rest in togetherness is what love is all about... actually there is passion in lingering silent.
