becoming this us

bodies blend to become
this us promised in your hands
how they open to mine
how our eyes echo feeling

this us promised in your hands
painting skin all colors with one touch
how our eyes echo feeling
the way your voice calls my spirit

painting skin all colors with one touch
you scribe alphabets of desire
the way your voice calls my spirit
there is only yes in my breathing

you scribe alphabets of desire
how they open to mine
there is only yes in my breathing
bodies blend to become

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  18. What a lovely pantoum ~ sensual and romantic ~

  19. ManicDdaily says:

    Wonderful pantoum – so subtly done – and beautifully framed. The repetition feels like a wonderful embrace – various limbs around the reader. k.

  20. Gracefully woven… you make a pantoum look easy.

    • oh my–thanks! This one was easy, because the musicality of the lines begged repetition. The ones I have set out to write as exercises have not been this easy πŸ˜‰

  22. Myrna says:

    I’m not one for form, but I know you did a great job with this one. Because so many people write love poems, I think it’s hard to be original. Yet, you are.
