I dwell, exist and feel ~ of paradise.
Can paradise be a feeling, or a state of mind?
Is paradise a place, born outside of time.
When and where, and how you touch
releases me –
a sensual intoxication,
seductive addictive –
your creation or
the spilling of my passion
is this the paradise I feel?
You play me, you know,
an instrument in your hands
made for your touch
it would seem.
But as you stroke and explore
the melody of my pleasure,
it seems my sweet passion
ignites your own.
I shudder with desire
And feel the paradise
I release within you,
as we share together,
these moments lost in dwelling
in the feel of paradise.
Penny L Howe, 2013
And this concludes the trilogy of sensual verse: Perhaps, It Seems and Of Paradise!

Thank you Penny for writing part 3–very delicious!!!!!
I was very happy to oblige, for you Ivonne! xx
Wonderfully written and good energy 🙂 thanks for sharing, I like it!
Thank you, very much! 🙂
Beautiful collection of words Penny. 🙂
Hi Arindam, nice to see you! Thank you very much! 🙂
My pleasure!! 🙂
Thank you (okay, I’m laughing here) !!! 🙂
Paradise is definitely in the ‘now’.. I live in it!!
May I visit? (your geographical world, I refer to here), Lisa! 🙂
A most sensual experience you gave us, passionate, and intoxicating. So sad that it has to end.
Yeah LuAnn, I know, I’m being somewhat (in a delightful, make me feel good kind of way) bugged about doing some more, so will think on how to continue this particular genre (a reach for me, actually !!!) 🙂
Nothing seems to be too far a reach for you dear friend. 🙂
Not exactly accurate, LuAnn but thank you for the kind words my friend! 🙂 xx
Paradise found!! And the rest of the stuff i am thinking is too steamy…um…is it hot in here? because–fans face rapidly–it seems awfully hot in here…;)
I know Karen, it is quite a writing challenge. Conveying the message without the use of direct and specific terminology, just sort of leading a person to a certain place where sensual emotions dwell! My goal anyway, yes it did warm up! 🙂
” seems my sweet passion
ignites your own.” ~ ahhh this is my favorite (though I adored the whole thing)…. You are so gifted Penny – maybe you need an ongoing “seductive/sensual series” — I so enjoyed all 3 of these …
Or maybe romance novel/trilogy? is in your future… Just fantastic work my dearest friend ~ x Robyn
Thank you Robyn, yes indeed I am a romantic at heart. And to me I’d rather use words that allow the imagination the opportunity to create the setting. For me (and I think most women) explicitness isn’t needed, when the emotions are already there! I’ll think on some further exploration of sensuality, although a bit of a challenge however, lol! Thank you again dearest friend of mine, xo
Beautifully concluded 🙂
Thank you Celestine. Talk about a challenge. It is difficult to express a feeling (an emotion) that today is literally thrown in our faces (everywhere) with explicit terminology and too often a vulgarity that takes away from what the experience should really be. Well my thoughts on the subject anyway, my friend! 🙂
And your thoughts are spot on. Over here, such a beautiful experience is so much debased these days through lyrics, poor quality films and obscene dance moves
Thank you Celestine. There is a beauty in the expression of our inner feelings where love and desire meet. Like you I dislike the degrading of this, that is so prevelant today!
I like the idea of paradise- born inside or born outside…
Thank you, it is a thought or perhaps a question to muse over, isn’t it?
I nominated you for inner peace award. Please accept it.
Thank you ma’ma 🙂
Thank you, I’m heading over there to accept right now! 🙂
This is a wonderful writing indeed! I really like the sense of different dimension in looking things/feelings, and with the emotion texture. However, the expression is too strong for me, like vodka, because I still like wine better I guess =).
I understand perfectly kc. Wine is preferable, from my reference point as well. The writing challenge is to present a sensual expression that conveys an emotion for people to connect to, within themselves, not so much to live through vicariously but to dream (perhaps) of the nature of those feelings. I sincerely appreciate your commenting here, thank you!
Beautiful lines Penny 🙂
Thank you Gys, very much, my friend! 🙂
Very nice, Penny, and I think paradise is way before time?
Thank you Yoshiko, yes I’m sure you are correct! 🙂
Welcome, Penny, for answering my comments 🙂
Mmmm…..YummY YummY!! 😳
Why thank you, very much, Jueseppi! xx
U R turning into quite the erotica author…..YummY stuff!! 😯
OMG! Sensual is an understatement. Lol I so not gay, but that would sway me!! LMAO
Just beautiful, Penny! hugs Paula xxx
Thank you Paula, I do try to write these in a mostly universal sense, so it’s more about the feeling itself than the gender, if that makes sense to you! Naturally one’s thoughts go in a specific direction but that’s the purpose! Thanks again dear friend, hugs also to you xx
Thank you, very much Lucia! 🙂
Thank you Ute! 🙂
What a pity it has to end… this trilogy was way too good to allow to rest without further postings… come on Penny you can do it… just adds that little spice to reading your blog…
OH Bulldog. It is a challenge. The expressions are those that I feel are acceptable and certainly suggestive without crossing over too much into the erotic explicitly that many would be uncomfortable with. So it can be difficult to find the right words to convey a full meaning to make a point, for you however I’ll see if I can … dear friend! Spice does make food richer to the taste! 🙂
What a great end to the trilogy. The way you describe the feelings certainly has the mind racing.
Another great piece Penny
Thank you Alastair, a little racy for me, but fun to write too! 🙂
It is 😀
Shows you’re human Penny
Wait, let me check … yes I am (mostly human) unless as Christina points out, I don my robe and head up to the mountain top to dwell on the nature of human beings, lol! 🙂
😆 Love it
Wow! You are one hot woman poet. Splendid!
Thank you Tez, very much!
I felt every word of it dear poet 😉 xxx
Yes, I believe you Roxi, xx
very nice Penny love the way you ended this
Hi Doris, thank you, I am pleased you enjoyed, my friend! xx
oh this is wonderful!
and yes I enjoyed very much…Beautifully scripted on emotional waves…
Thank you, very much ladyblue. I really like the poetic quality to your comment/compliment! xx
