I Found Myself Reborn

(Originally published in 2021, and again here in October 2021.)

 

Author’s preface:  Close your eyes and dare to dream of things beyond Man’s understanding, then sit down and write out your imaginings.

 

She led me by the hand
Through a green forest.
Twisting around the trunks,
Ducking beneath low branches.
I followed blindly in love
With the feel of her hand
And the utter sweetness
Of her breath on my cheek,
And her – ‘encompassment’.
She stopped in a clearing
But a few yards across,
Pulled herself against my hand
Until her lips covered mine
And her breast impressed
Pertly on my nakedness.
Our kiss was unending
And filled me with fire,
With secret understanding,
And a lust for life itself.
She breathed into my body
Something greater than air.
We held each others hands
As our twinned lips parted,
And I? I breathed out lust.

She mouthed silent words,
Smiled an angelic smile,
Unfurled her gorgeous wings,
And in a column of white
Rose toward the open sky –
Hands and arms outstretched
As if she had just placed
Me in this wooded scene.

The trees and I once more alone –
Free to navigate a way
Though the multitude of leaves
And questionable maneuvers.

I watched her elevation
‘Till she was a star, afar,
As night had brushed dark
Colours over her euphoric clouds.

I found myself reborn.

  1. WOW, Allen, such a lovely poem it is. The imagery is just magical, and your imagination was so soothing, and calm. It is such nice writing truly based upon imagination, and the ending was awesome too. keep it up, really liked this one.

  2. This is beautiful sensual seductive write. There is nothing like a touch of a women for a man to invigorate. I would hope that every man dreams of it. Even such kind of imagination may be enough when feel exhausted by life. I love the flow of poem, Allen.
