Water Lily

This is inspired by Bree’s recent post Give It A Go

The flirtatious candle flames dancing in the room
Such tempting ambience in the deep of the night
Even the pregnant moon shys away
and hides behind the ruby sky

How about we put off tomorrow
peel off layers of shame
lay off all expectations
Let the satin sheet subdue our fervent wants
Trembling fingertips to steady these urging waves in vain
Your burning lips iron the wrinkles around my mouth
teaching me the secret of blooming and fading

You have made me the only water lily in Monet’s night garden
