Seduction By Starlight -sonnet-
Author: Capricorn


The curtain’s drawn; a spangled velvet sheet
creates a welcomed shade from daylight’s heat.
As slumber blankets earth in dreams, so night’s
soft moonbeams dance in dim seductive lights.

Big eyes entice the sky, they wink to flirt;
she fingers silver buttons on his shirt
and proudly flaunts the galaxies of gems
on midnight’s hand. Bright sequins lift her hem
as stellar rays embrace the dark. She sighs
when kisses scatter over sultry skies;
a supernova bursts in rising cloud
the climax of the night … she gasps aloud!

The curtain opens slowly … not to rush
as dawn peeps out, the sky begin to blush.

Love the passion of your pen.

My, My Cap,
From where do such feelings flow, I have never known you to write this way, so beautifuly spent, the time you shared with us, when you felt this poem. Every line, laced with the tender grace, of a Ladie's Mind and and a Woman's Heart.

Cap, this is so, beautiful, a lesson released to us all, how the heart can feel and dream. Just beautiful!

Hi Martin

I wrote this a while ago and thought I'd share it with you.
Glad you liked it

I think this is the most wonderful sonnet! It is so seductive and sensual, but tender and heartfelt (not particularily just lustful). I love it!
