From the pages of A Touch of Rose…




Softly notes linger, caressing

As melodic foreplay, sensory

Warmth ascending, fingertip touch

Sway to its cadence, simmering

Hands sculpt curvature, firmness traced

In treble resonance, fleeting

Hastened breath drawn, burning release

Tongue strokes flicker in amber dance

Moistened skin trembling, ebb and flow

Forms undulating, crescendo

Toes tracing upward, torso sway

Lips part in wordless ecstasy

Eyes convey intimate shadow

Obscure in its pallor, mystic

Secretions slide effervescent

Tempering a heat smouldering

Hips in gyration, amber dance

Conjoined flames’ erotic embrace

Gentle, hypnotic renderings
