Fantasies of February Fourteenth

Come-to-bed whispers in candlelight
soft music silenced by slight sighs
empty blushing champagne flutes
smooth dark chocolate lips
velvet warming silk
scattered stockings
legs engaged

Really engaging. I love the romance and visuals conveying the romance. I like the form as well. Beautiful write.


Ha! It's more like sci-fi, now. :) But I have some beautiful Valentine's Day memories!
Thank you for reading!

I love the form and the way each line brings the reader closer to the ultimate conclusion. The word choices bring each line to life in the mind's eye. A beautiful write.


It was a fun write - a little whimsy.
Thank you so much for reading!

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

Ha, ha! I didn't realize that! I love this challenging form - 9 lines, 9 syllables in the first line and then syllable count decreases with each following line. I have read some nonet-style poems with word count, instead of syllables, and there is a reverse nonet. It's a fun challenge.
Thank you for reading!

Great writing!

The power of our language can and will change the world.
Successively until our languages become one!
