    full moon breast heave in and out of a cloudy haze
    taking deep breaths of this night air
    her hair falls and paints folds of shadows down her torso
    she dangles
    as she moves in and out of our hemisphere
    a ball of yarn
    our bodies tangled in the sheets of roses
    this was a memory
    a past that forwards the future

    and here draped across the sheets
    our love
    the present
    opening for the morning
    like japanese cherry blossom

      Making whoopee?

      Opening thoughts
    Your last few bits have made use of the descriptive moon metaphor. Full-moon. Half-moon. If you weren't aware, it should strike you now. Not a terrible thing, it seems to me that you are experimenting with a descriptive thing that you have taken a liking to.

    Quick grammar/typo
    "breast" => "breasts"
    "cloudy smoking" => "cloudy, smoking"

    Confuses me, "her hair fell like curtains around her shoulders as she moved in..."
    Or, "her hair like curtains around her shoulders as she moved/moves in..."
    Would make more sense as far as imagery goes. I may be wrong and would like you to explain how it makes sense.

    As for the whole stanza, I could take it as a woman getting "high" literally. I could take it as an image with no drug connection, though the "cloudy smoking haze" supports some form of drug that is smoked.
    Or, someone in the sky.
    Or, as per the title, incense burning.

    I understand this line on a personal level.
    "was" is an interesting choice.
    Is it a matter of a memory being erased? A matter of the past coming back to the present, thus a memory being the now? Perhaps, as we go to
    we could say then that the memory is something the speaker hopes to have again. Something the speaker looks forward to in the future.

    Something blossoming, suggests reaching a maturity, and end, or a beginning of something more "juicy" than what was immature.
    The love the speaker talks of could be maturing becoming more than simple kid's stuff.
    "the present" loses me.

    I've said less than I wanted because I have conflicting views that I can't reconcile one way or another. So I just kind of threw some stuff out there with the thought that I completely misinterpreted this.

    On it's own, I'd say very minimalist, just enough to get some idea out there while conntaining the full meaning to yourself. Thus people can see a new love (another possibility of S3), or a young love growing, or a new beginning.

    I like how it reads, I like the actual idea I get out of it (which I didn't put down in this). The imagery is simple in a positive way.

    There is nothing really wrong with the piece. Simple. Silent. Good. Not great, but definitely good.
