Bjorn at dVerse has invited us to speak metaphorically.

I desire to write the curves of you
that my fingers might dance you, and
having dipped my quill in the
dark well of your silken ink
that glides my page with
such soft egress,
we would language in caress
as whispered feathers
fly to purring clouds.

Note: Extasis – Latin borrowed from the Greek – ecstasy or rapture.

  7. I really love how you can write about passion in such a way… I can really feel how words can seduce.
