Sensuous Shadows

sensual shadows

~

Night

dark

sensation

tantalizing

strokes of shadows.

Reaching

caressing

moist

tasting

inhaling

sensual shadows.

Memory?

Thought?

Dream?

Ah, je ne m’inquiète pas!

I

succumb

submission

release

pleasure

deeply satiated.

Slumber now,

Shadows Release.

  1. It is such a welcomed “state” …the one you describe here so passionately. I love this Penny… it does capture that feeling we are fortunate to know – somewhere between the conscious and the unconscious… that feeling is always a gift. To succumb ~ and release to this is simply Divine. Amazing poetry my dearest friend ~ Love to you ~ x RL

  2. Funny you should mention “surreality”. Have you ever read Juan Rulfo’s “Pedro Páramo?” Published in 1955, it’s been heralded as a masterpiece of true surrealistic fiction. It’s a small book, so you could practically read it in one sitting. But then, you’d have to read it in one sitting because it’s so bizarre. It’s worth the trouble, though, if you’re into that type of literature.

  3. AnElephantCant say what he thinks here
    He would be sent very quickly to the bench
    Your sensuous thoughts
    Tie his trunk in knots
    And then you say something in French!

    Quite exquisite, Penny.

  4. What a lovely post, Penny.

    It reminds me of that moment just before or after sleep where you aren’t sure if something is real or a dream. Mind you, it’s been a long time since something like that 😉

Thank you for your thoughts!
