The sheets beneath the shadow lights a spark,
for whence we laid down he nestled his head.
Our enchantment lights magic in the dark,
but so much is spoken with words unsaid.
For love can be given without a sound,
and received within the silence of night.
Freely nurturing with touching, profound,
nevertheless understood without sight.
Let us keep the secrets of passion calm,
yet exalt beyond the whisper of breeze.
Free from apprehension and busy qualm,
longing for our souls to be hushed with ease.
For as long as we remain free from sound,
our mystical romance will be unbound.

love, spoken word,
Warm evenings have that lazy feel,
As the sun sets upon the day.
An orange ball suspended,
As all cares now swept away.
The exotic smells in the perfumed air,
That lies heavy all around.
Mimosa now that in full bloom,
As its branches drape the ground.
Do you ever look at the sky?
As the stars come out at night.
When you’re held by that someone specials arms,
And don’t want to say goodnight.
Though no spoken word is uttered,
As eyes gaze into eyes
It’s said there windows to the soul,
Mere feelings can’t disguise.
Love can just be fleeting,
With precious thoughts we steal.
And in that brief encounter,
We know that it’s for real.

"Enchantment - Duo-Rhyme"
brilliant beams of Sunlight cascade
to orange aura marmalade
enhancing love while blooming new
beneath cream skies of patent blue
sprinkling words sweet as dawning's dew
two turtledoves in wings which coo
fond melodies caress adieu'
in magic moments rendezvous
frolicked in fields of heather's hue
fake hearts faded to vapor's view
soft silver stars shed tears parade
enchanted moonlight mist charade'.

angel, beautiful, beauty, blessing, emotions, feelings, love,
Enchantment of this soul
breathing inside the magic aroma.
Under the hawthorn bush a fragrance lingers
appearing out of thin air my dream
Lunar circle turning over earthern thoughts
a strawberry cream moon softly whispers
Under the green turf you are held solid diamond
the beauty of midnight tolls
Growing all over the castle walls ivy emotions
gripping feelings cotton soft slippers hold a print
Embracing cold stone warmly clinging onto chambers walls
Transforming kisses tenderly inside the heart and soul
by Mohammad Yamin |
love, passion, night, night,
In summer night when the sky is blue
When in hearts passions ignite
When the clouds shower a sprinkle or two
When desires brighten the darkness of night
When in the skies the stars wink
When butterflies sleep and night bird’s awake
When fountains flow with serenity’s drink
When the sound of breathing, the silence break
When thoughts are dressed in colorful gowns
When the breeze is pregnant with love’s fragrance
When the time in the lake of enchantment drowns
When in ecstasy the whirling Sufis dance
When my soul in agony of despair writhes
When swords of loneliness are out of sheaths
I care not whether false or true
Whisper in my ears, “I love you”

Pleasures Of Tender Love
confection for the sweet
a taste of delight
if only I could show you
the pleasures of tender love
that shines like golden honey
caramel apples aureate
strewn across the heavens of
cotton candy on ole buttermilk sky
set it free from its trap in the terminal
enchantment blanket of pea soup fog
into the clean crystal clear wet river and quench the thirst
to the taste and pleasures of deep warm, tender love
like wealth of blushing candy apple red and rainbow colored flowers
seasons of warm and cold like silken sheets
as they drape and cling tightly to our embrace
by liam mcdaid |
baptism, beautiful, flower, heart, love, magic, star,
Thee sweetest lily and flower of Eden’s garden growing wild and free
held under this enchantment where the daises circles around gold
Flower of hearts where there shades of apple blossoms pink
dazzling the night under the teardrops of angels deeply unfold petals
Within a black satin velvet sky twinkling centre of stars your beauty outshines
with piercing diamond light inside a halo you are crowned perfectly regal
Princess of the starlight gaze faraway holding a dream enveloping an echo
enchanted by the magic you spell one in a thousand whispers
by Nancy Jones |
love, nature, peace, time,
Leaping in barefoot abandon
Soaring every which way from Sunday
Laughter effortlessly exhaling cool breezes.
Lounging on nature’s lush carpet
Silhouette illumined by carefree serenity
Lapping up rays and shining them back
Licorice sticks and crackers and brie
Sweet plumpness of kiwi and mango and peach
Licking ripe juices off contented grin
Long luscious showers in waterfall glory
Swirling delightfully playfully pure
Lingering loving caresses of freshness
Last blush of daylight’s electrical charge
Sunset yields gracefully generously kind
Lights flicker syntax where space enfolds meaning
Lay here beside me
Savor my dream
Let my enchantment touch yours
by Paul Callus |
When true love comes unexpected
Knocking gently on the door
And I open, then you enter
I stand spellbound on the floor
There is light that blinks and flickers
While the shadows dance around
Every heartbeat rhythmic music
Every breath heavenly sound.
Should I move or break the silence
Take your hands, look in your eyes?
I dare not disturb the moment
Where profound enchantment lies.

Entwined hearts beating as one reaching out
Under a perfect seductive midnight
Drawn to the beguiling stars all about
Obscured by drifting clouds dance and delight
Moon stepped from the shadows and advanced her
Noble grace weaving silver beams and lace
Round Venus , Pluto, Mars, and Jupiter
Threading them up in her whimsy embrace
Entrancing night under the Milky Way
Stretching across the sky with enchantment
Vast and mysterious place always stays
Unchanged shining embracing the planet
Enthralled by ethereal glow of stars
Orbiting round and round that once was ours

the time I shared with you
long past the times, few
by Minerva Ochoa |
allegory, devotion, love, passion, song-
Your cold lips,
Your frozen Figure...a sad emotion you expelled.
I touch your shape, trembling at the source.
Modeling away to my cheeks.
At sunrise we slept,
At midnight we loved.
The stars and the clouds draw us layouts of dreams,
our elixir of love.
Hands slept in our grave, a singing hymn.
We drank each other's memories.
We danced until the moon was put to sleep.
Covered ourselves with petals of Rose,
Bare to the despair, the sun presented.
Decaying, and never growing old.
We fulfill these lavender caresses everyday.
Immortals, will will always love.
We will always be together...
Lovers in time.
Vampires in a dream,
A reality to me coming true.
by Sukmawati Komala |
to a melancholic heart
one drop of love
are blooming roses
sing thousands heart’s desire
in silent decending
of its sparking beauty
lay away veiled senses
imply enduring tranquillity
to reach life’ s abundance
wish i could just have
my only one
one drop of love

adventure, faith, inspirational, life, love, nature, uplifting,
Overwhelmed in webs of silken light with crystal dew dripping beneath
each hue of azure, emerald and citrine melt amongst the tree's
For worry, has now gone, replaced with colored strands
surreal breaths of enchantment, as I reach for felicities hand
A soul of liberation, a thought to ponder within....
for my poetic song I have abandoned, to fly silent across the land

love, rose, red, rose,
A red rose whispers of enchantment
And the white rose reveals the depth of love
O, the red rose is like that of a falcon,
And the white rose is symbolic of the dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For our love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on our lips.
by PADMORE AGBEMABIESE |
loss, lost love, love,
after you were gone
your presence manacled my soul and lingered
long on the streets of my conscience
caught on desolate fields of loneliness
silence and tears remembered
the beauty you created
your absence was felt on the breast
of my memory and the air I breathed
jammed at its doorways
and death looked me in the face
and my eyes wept for your return
in the hearth of desires
your enchantment remained a lingering shadow
in every whisper on steep slopes of hope and I cried
every lip prays for the resurrection of our souls
and at the village square
steps wait to see us walk our chiefly walk again

adventure, life, love,
I'm always close.....
.......i'm always near
no need to fear,my darling dear
even as I ride on seperate continents
long distance's just a matter of geography
that the farther apart we may seem to be
more space is now clear for you to feel free
my sacrifice for you to assure safety and peace
hopefully,one day,i'll be rewarded release
but in the mean time,I battle,for your love is true
security for the whole,lady fair,is what we do
A moments passing,only a moment
everlasting will be our delights enchantment.....

autumn, boat, cat, death, dedication,
bold gold eyes glimmer
sleek sweet soul softly simmers
flame of love flickers
feline fur fashion
paws of pearl parchment
pranced and danced with enchantment
regal and romantic
loving lick kisses
his bold colors autumn bliss
we now reminisce
his heart cared and shared
like summer steam rain that paired
with us all...we faired
purring music floats
within our wishing soul boats
we catch his cat notes

inspirational, love, love,
As in times
Love comes softly
Whispering my name
Of Beauty to behold
Never grows old

Enchantment... set sails
Entwines never fails
Two souls... binds
Man & Woman
True Love endures
Love Whispers words
“I Love You”
by Line Gauthier |
hope, i love you, longing, relationship, voice,
I’ll wait an eternity to hear
The simple words ‘I love you’
But don’t ask me to live a day
Without the warmth of your eyes
The tenderness of your touch
The sweetness of your lips
The enchantment of your voice
by Evelyn Judy Buehler |
celebration, joy, moon, romance, summer, sunshine, vacation,
Varicolored smoke bombs, at a three generation celebration,
Splendors, rest and excitement, on a sun drenched vacation,
A heart bursting with song, love following wherever you go;
And the return to raptures, beneath a multicolored rainbow!
Fragrant flowers opening wide, their petals to gold summer,
And a moonlit tango enchantment, on ebony edges of slumber.

poetry, word play,
on the verge of love,
mutual discovery unveiled
in their secret world;
lips to lips ,sealed,
hearts in passion pound
ardour's whispers sound;
need unchains desire,
pleasure's fever fans a fire,
each flame thrusting higher;
in duet's crescendo choir
realisation exceeds hope,
promise, with trust elope;
a quatorzain is a stanza or poem of fourteen lines

dark, introspection, light, love, moon, sorrow, wisdom,
I sat alone
with the moon
last night – in
the deep dark;
till the dim light
I spoke of Love's enchantment...
of Love's joys, and of loveless
I asked, had she also counted –
with the happy hours –
the many unrequited tears?
Had she kept a few of my own?
For joy and sorrow, does Her Light
show different tone? Or for Her,
is it all the same moan?
by Edward Ebbs |
In the morning light
I wake up to see your face
You open your eyes
There is that smile
Enchantment within the heart
