Some nice imagery here, and you finish it up well. The phrase 'wave crashes / gently' seemed a bit off [unless being oxymoronic was your intent]. Other than that a good piece. Loved the last stanza. Nice work.
This was a wonderful surprise Tiff. Not like the other writings I have read of yours. You used a rhyme scheme for this that wasn't forced but flowed beautifully without compromising your message. Starts out invitingly and ends strongly with what I find to be the best stanza of the poem "You my Lover, I your Muse ~ * ~" Bravo. `always write poetry, Cheryl.
OH Epip- my friend what you trying to do, outdo my mushyness for love peoms?? Well hun, it seems you have done me so much better. I really enjoyed this piece. " Paint us life's gracious hues" BEAUTIFUL!
i love this line / it brings on so many views / the unlimited insightfullness this line has- is so crafty- it just screams art!. the poem from a standing point is wavie - but it works so well good job! JWI
