Inspiration from “Afternoon in Bed”

The prickly heated air,
Covets this sleepy pair.
Who, once tightened in embrace
Were face to face, kissing.
When the whole world appeared, missing.

Deep breathing,
Making moist glowing skin
Sprawled, against crisp, cotton sheets
Cooling them. Until they arouse in the heat,
And once again, their bodies shall meet.

Yeah I'd like to see the picture too!! Beautiful language, kind of makes me feel like I've seen it already..

The descriptive language used here is so effective as I can almost feel "The prickly heated air ...", and closing my eyes I can almost see the pair. Simply delightful piece.

oh to spend an aftrenoon like that, I am sorry I have ocme to this rather late but wonder if you should change the layout slightly

I think I would consider putting the word [b[kissing[.b] on a seperate line I think it increases the anticipation

lovely poem. great images

take care
