In Love...

IN LOVE WITH BEAUTY
X
Beauty makes a fool of us all
it halts the breath's flow
in a seizure of desire
and that fatal allure
x
It halts the breath's flow
I swoon from so much splendor
and that fatal allure
love and longing find me again....

ASLEEP
X
Don't wake.
Let me stare at you as you dream...
the bedroom
dark blue at dawn,
the sun still hiding
below the polestar.....

Yes, yes, and a thousands yeses to 'Asleep'. Absolutely beautiful and you captured my feelings for my other half when I see her asleep on an autumnal Sunday morning.

Many thanks. Both poems are impressive.

Greetings from London.

You are a lucky man indeed! I myself like to go off the deep end, every once in a while...
