Of lover's yearnings with lingering warm caress

Sunday's Whirligig given words:
world misty everything again beyond beginning 
place nowhere silence head talk people 

3WW given words:
obedient raspy somber

Poets United's Midweek Motif:
freedom

World of misty mornings clouding the vision
Below a subdued sky moving over warm breasts
Everything with peaceful gestures again in tandem
Of lover's yearnings with lingering warm caress

Freedom of choice beyond feelings of innocence
Beginnings of  a relationship destined to take place
Nowhere is it prompted but readily molded in silence
Extending love a chance to head for saving face

Talk of sane young hearts somber in inclination
Of people led into high spirits of wanting to give
Chic of a young lady most obliging and obedient
Mindful for a man's raspy voice may sound combative

For MMT's Sunday Whirligig #14
Thomg's 3WW week #434 and
Susan's at PU's Midweek Motive  -  freedom

  1. Freedom of choice beyond feelings of innocence
    Beginnings of a relationship destined to take place
    Nowhere is it prompted but readily molded in silence
    Extending love a chance a head for saving face

    These lines are so full of depth! Beautifully penned :D

  2. A little yearning and much can take place as the feelings grow and love does show

  5. "Beginnings of a relationship destined to take place
    Nowhere"

    Great double meaning here.

  6. The freedom of choice came through beautifully in your first two stanzas. It's amazing that the choice is public and sanctioned, but that doesn't mean that choosing it will be easy. I didn't understand the last stanza, but perhaps it points to the difficulty? It's the obedience and combativeness that confuse me.

    1. I was trying to say that a lady so demure and elegant deserves to be treated with care. A raspy voice not considered as menacing to others can appear to be very rough and combative to a sophisticated lady. May need to correct and clear the confusion. Thanks Susan.

  19. I agree with Sanaa. It was that verse which I returned to twice. Especially that part about choices over innocence. Beautiful.
