Friday Fictioneers – A Spirit that Remembers


Moonlight glimmers faintly, 

through breeze tossed curtains.

A glow flickers,

in the darkness of the night.

I can feel you.

A gentle touch that tingles my body,

emotions awaken within,

a spirit that remembers. 

Illusions of another time,

put to rest as,

heat burns my skin

and fire rakes the inside of my soul.

A musky scent of passion,

surrounds us like a wall.

Jasmine is in the air.

Filling the room, my senses,

desire reigning everywhere.

Moonlight creeps again,

into the darkened room,

Bodies burn with sweat,

from an afterglow of lust.

The forbidden fruit, 

nourishing, an eternal memory.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  12. Izzy, I watched for your story but thought maybe you were skipping this week… here in Israel, it’s already Friday night, and I forgot to check again. Glad you joined! I really love the first two lines; perfection! Somehow, knowing how close you are to your husband, I can’t help but wonder… such a sensual piece, brava!

    • I usually post on Friday. I’m always late or on time since it is Friday Fictioneers. LOL
      I love writing love peoms during the month of February – Valentine’s Day. Yes, we are hopeless romantics. My husband more than me which is a plus for me. I have written many poems for my husband. This has some vignettes. In 2012, I had posted this poem on a site that banned me from writing on their site because they said it was pornographic. HAHA … me … never. I guess I was a litttle too much in love for their taste. Thank you for visiting, Dawn. I know you’re busy loving that little grandson with hugs and kisses. Did you mention his name? I’m sure it’s a good one. Happy weekend … Izzy 😎
