devotion, love, magic, moon, nature, night, sunset,
by Line Gauthier |
At day's end a retreating sun banished
Awestruck we witness its closing farewell
Silently the last veil of hue vanished
Our woes amounting to mere bagatelle
Nightfall air transfixed as if by a spell
Overcome with a wave of emotion
Rose sublimely over the citadel
An opalescent moon set in motion
‘Twas a night of magical proportion
Willow trees swaying in the summer breeze
Billowing waves pulsating devotion
Surrendering unperturbed with such ease
A sumptuous spectacle up above
Reflected in a sea of divine love

How elated I’d feel if you were to grant my wish
Once we had eaten that sumptuous seafood dish.
You leave the vale and take me slowly up the hill
A wonder of heather growing in glades all fill.
Today is just a fine great day, with barely a breeze
We’ll leave behind down in the vale all stately trees.
We’ll find a dry rock and rest a while up on the hill
Admire the vista of trees and yonder hear the melody of a rill.
But best of all I love the heather and love its lighter scent
Yet more I admire the various colours and I’m content.
So, darling make me happy as we go up the sloping incline
Let me admire nature’s best as we roam the heather fine.

angel, appreciation, feelings, love,
Warm Embers Glow.
Wrapped up cozily safe and warm
In my angel's wings
Within our soft feathered nest
A time of blissful awakenings
Sharing giving soothing and tenderness
Skin to skin heart to heart
A single sumptuous lingering kiss the spark
Ignites the flames of passion and desire
As the night slowly expires
The embers still glow
Long after the fire

He drives along the countryside ,
speeding the hearts of all the woman.
Delivering his sumptuous smile ,
the enigma of his personality.
Deep blue eyes are purest in the world ,
A white man's love to die for !
I have bathed in oriental monsoon,
tasted the Indian wine
, but nothing as compared to his passion.
The gear of my heart is in his hands ,
My blood runs through the engine ,
He drives me to his heart's harbour,
For he is my sexy TRUCK DRIVER.

emotions, feelings, love,
You are my bright spot
When I meet your gaze
and see your brilliant smile
Your wavy hair playing in the wind
- The violins shower
in a sumptuous landscape
A thousand butterfly kisses
which tickles my lips
- then .. my heart with pleasure fills
Sun :) - A-L Andresen :)

I called her sweetie pie
She called me honeybun
Her apple pies were nice
She baked them just for fun
And in the fall, she'd make
A sumptuous pumpkin pie
She always loved to bake
She kept me satisfied
But the apple of my eye
Is my lovely sweetie pie
Her ingredients do enthrall
She's my favorite pie of all

allah, blessing, god, miracle, thanksgiving,
Tender mercies on us shower
From The Supreme ’s sacred tower
Hungry get a sumptuous meal
Angry get a soothing heal
Barren blessed with lovely child
Lost absolved from scary wild
True confession granted pardon
Buds fresh bloom in wilted garden
Homeless get a safe shelter
A fireplace in chilling winter
Drowning rescued in someone’s guise
Distraught guided through friend wise
Marital bliss, trustworthy mate for lonely
Door opens for one who knocks sincerely
His love and grace for us is in profusion
Counting blessings lets submit grateful effusion

allusion, boyfriend, confidence, crush, dream, hilarious, love hurts,
He treads proudly towards his target
With his hair immaculately cut to style
As if he is fresh from a barber shop
-You should know he is up to something.
He is always adorned with sumptuous jewellery
And a pungent smell of a cologne
Oh, how pleasing he smells...
-He is up to something.
He has a wondrous smile
-that is supposed to melt hearts
and a wink in his eyes
-He is up to something.
As he smoothly begins to say his usual blarney lines,
Words so convincing
And suppose to lure you into something
-You should know he is no good.

life, love, passion, sensual,
The opal of her body, so sensuous
Creates disruption within my very soul
Without resting, she moves me so sumptuous
I falter in breathing because her control
She brings be beyond error and ignorance
However I crumble due to her brilliance
Her eyes tenderly take me beyond their cast
I start to soften as passion holds me fast

smothered in chili
onions heaped high
on a tasty mustard bun
I will not waste one morsel
My eyes feast upon you
on my plate,
as you sit and await your fate!
My palette awaits
I want to hold you
and devour you
Love of my life,
you make my mouth water
I am tantalized by your smell
Your aroma tempts me
My taste buds tingle
You are my Red Hot!
I have been awaiting this moment
to bite into your burning flesh,
and experience your texture,
and enjoy Umami

desire, happiness, love, passion,
My eyes behold majestic wonders of you
Colorful renderings of loves vibrant portrait
Fills my sight
Soft fragrant aromas caress my senses
As the flavorful essences of passion
Moisten my lips
Images soft and serene drift through my mind
As my love for you gently meanders
Within my body
Soft whispers of beloved devotion swirl around me
As it chases away the lonely silence
I take in those refreshing words
As I inhale your sumptuous warm breathe
As my youthful desires give way
To masculine occurrences within my being
My hunger is stayed
As your sensual touch fulfills my craving
For affection and its appetite for life

feelings, food, happiness, humanity, imagery, life, simple,
Sour, bitter, salty, spicy, bland or way too hot.
Each easily countered in the blink of the eye.
Too often one looks past "what is" for "what is not".
Appetites unsatisfied with a feeling nigh.
My secret to happiness is truly being,
Staying in the center of the moment right now.
Not looking to the past in fear or in fleeing,
Nor controlling the future, or wondering how?
With no expectations, my life is wonder full,
Living simply, my earthly burden is lightened.
Lapping the feast of life's love by spoon and spoonful,
Each sumptuous sip adding savoury heightened.

in a stunning pose
with long flowing tress

Of course I love you, the slang phrase Yo, men flirting O, sumptuous U, curse words aches to demolish the beauty of you, sweet sticky substance found on plants she's my honeydew, the sweetness of someone like you, is rare like a holographic card, O you, can a card explain you, cheap brand but great value, right love, what is left residue, drowning in Love Boo, I'll be a lifeguard and be honeydews rescue.

food, life, me,
Familiar aroma oozes from the fry pan,
Secretion of enzymes makes me lick my lips,
Fried plantain and Jollof rice I love more than Dan,
Mum knows how to spice it well before she sleeps.
I rushed down to the kitchen without waiting,
I can`t miss my sumptuous rice after a game,
Mum sent me out to shower or I get nothing,
Fidgeting;hoping the quantity will be the same.

The sweetness of the moon
Immerged in a pretty
The cliff highness
Implanted on a natural temple,
Happiness for idyllic strolls!
Light by such a night
Is a wonderful reflect of the full moon
Then, one of the lovely rules taken
From a sweet evening,
Should be...Peace, Light and Love!

How fingertips poised
From stoic roots
untangled, is but
Stars unveil their codes
At the edge of time
Where gravity fades
dirt all nonsense
We dig passion fruit
From sumptuous screens
by Ernest Badounts |
The night is saturated with love's perfect reign,
Calling all lovers to dine,
The sumptuous mystery of the night.
Oh Universe! Bright Universe!
Express thy deep essential bliss,
Flow like the rivers golden,
Play on the whimsical stars.
The crickets keep the starry night alive,
The nightingale breaks the morbid silence.
We (as two lovers) keep searching
for the best in ourselves;
While the stars pour their love on us,
Expanding the magnetic beautiful.
As we levitate with our kisses and blend with the starry night.

beautiful, love, summer, sun, sunset,
When I alight from the deck
of my slumber,
and life persists to matter
You, the sprouting day,
newborn world, no noise
the first thing I wake up to
My true hope that grows anew
When vivid clouds leave the
skies and the sumptuous
twilight is up to entice
You, the sinking sun-the finale
to my frisk and fun
The highlight of what living
has been about
My needed remedy to a
You are both the sunrise and
the sunset I wait for
the marvel impossible to ignore
I am the earth with sustenance

I vacillate vicariously

birthday, flower, friend,
Alamandas are green,
Violets are purple,
Holly-hocks are pink,
Mari-golds are yellow,
Sun flowers,yellow too,
all in beautiful colours of nature.
There goes the wasp out to suck up the nectar.
The caterpillar clench on beneath,in its cocoon,
in a bid to mature.
Ranging hovering flies perch on to suck up juice.
The social insects, termites eat up the stems as lunch.
Sly fox walk by with its razor sharp teeth,
bite out the petals.
Billy goat bleats for joy seeing the mari-golds,
as its dinner is sure.
And the badly labelled of all creatures,man,
in awe at the sight of the sumptuous red rose.
He uproots but tends in a garden.
He plucks but dishes out as a show of love.
by Tony Bush |
love, passion, me,
I fall into your depths and drown,
Warm currents drag me ever down,
Until I feel my breath explode
Unleashed by some wild overload
That freed from out the anchor lung,
Alive with songs that must be sung,
They rush, careening fast towards
The resonating vocal chords.
Sweet beauty stuns my hungry eyes,
The words within me harmonise,
And all that I can see or do,
Ruled by the sumptuous heart of you;
Unwilling to restrain the urge,
A mad, abandoned, epic surge
Commands my voice extol the phrase:
"I love you 'till the end of days."
by Steve Eng |
Forgive my love for antique things.
But ancient visions light my mind.
Imagination spreads strong, spacious wings
And soars me backward where I find
Myself alive—in other lives behind.
I was a troubadour for kings,
And at their sumptuous tables, dined.
I donned their silks and wore their sapphire rings,
And with their courtesans, I wined.
Three thousand years ago, soft hands were kind.
Contrast it with corrupt “Today.”
The Present is a haggard whore,
A foetid vampire sucking dreams away.
I’ve lived a hundred, better lives before.
Their memory’s my golden door.

cute love, emotions, feelings, jealousy, longing, lost love, love,
The verb "hate" can never be
My darling, in my vocabulary
I can only love you night and day
I can only think of you all day long
I can only dream of you and long
For your presence at midday
When the bells are ringing
When the birds are singing
Gleefully on the branches
Near the sumptuous ranches
I can simply love you, my dear
Please come now, over here
Over there, much closer
Over here, much nearer.
