Seeking (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

I am writing this poem for O.S.I. and the theme is seeking.

Intense and full
Two strangers glancing
At a midnight moon
Seeking some intimate exchange
That requires their bodies
To balance the magic

A gentle rawness
Of hands and kisses
And heat
Of hands and kisses
And heat

Then he turns
To say something
Coldness in his breath
In the naked air
Of full beaming light

And the moon
Absorbed in her eyes
Her glistening skin
Blinds the sight
Of her tears

As unspoken words
Seeking to swallow
The night

Great imagery. I love last para. It carries so much silence with it!

Wow! W.G, you led me along here breathless and all! I loved reading this one! It has been 38 years since I've sat with a stranger but I still remember the sensations and subdued expectations. It was all here.

I thought. But why, oh why, did the fellow have coldness in his breath when he spoke? I don't think the words turned things off but rather this fellow wasn't really turned on. Or perhaps he was shy and hadn't dated a lot? Who knows except your poet muse.

Like Mrs. Jim tells the singles, "you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince."
