Cold Comfort iv

an honest conversation
over a warm dinner plate
in the winter… serving innermost thoughts on a slate
to the time – nothing could be more pertinent

not only to please but fulfil
considering last go-around we got carried away
in the heat of the moment
coitus on the couch
sensual elation

plush cushions on her elbows and knees for comfort
back arched
our actions – moot point – except on observation

calm at the feel of a touch
undeniable affinity
lovers levered by lust
and a desire for satisfaction

now starting afresh if you will
like we’ve never before traversed expanses….
as trackless as the Arctic snow
to capture the feeling of creation once more

    “Honest conversation over a warm dinner plate in the winter”. Terrific lead-in to your poem. Your images reveal so many levels to love.

    So pleased you feel that way. There are so many levels to ‘love’ or ‘loving’ that is true, and yet it’s purest when it takes no form, no description, no association, mention or meaning… and is revealed only in living
