Magpie Tales #100 - "Amour"

sculpture: Jason deCaires Taylor
Amour

Illicit kisses
and passionate song
fill our nights

as we drown
in a seemingly endless
champagne ocean
of bubbles

senses intoxicated

until morning's light
spirits you away

leaving me gasping
for more.

'Fess up, Margaret. You're such a romantic. :)

izzy said...

Oh My- morning can be a dread- I usually have found the experience was worth it! thanks.

Margaret said...

Yes, most likely a romantic. But I originally went dark and sad with this and then challenged myself and tried not to go with the obvious. Tried to dig deeper... :)

Teresa said...

Linda said...

A beautifully crafted poem, Margaret. It's everyone's fantasy dream.... to drown in love all night and be left gasping for more. It may well apply to art and poems too. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds heavenly.

Senses intoxicated in a champagne ocean sounds enticing.

Heaven said...

I can relate to the sensual write....this is beautifully done.

I like the way you have interpreted this most intriguing picture - passionately written with the lightest touch in the free verse style.

Mary said...

I enjoyed this write; and this kind of 'drowning' seems (ummm) rather (!) pleasant!

Mary Ann Potter said...

Lovely and expressive! An unexpected response to ths photo --- therein lies its delight!

Isabel Doyle said...

Splendid - I especially like the idea of vats of champagne!

Thank you everyone. I have been a bit lax in getting around to blog viewing and commenting as we are involved with a theatre play last week and this. Check my Saturday post out ... I have photos of my husband in "Nunsense Amen".
