The Art Of The Skin

Sweeping, our brush strokes,
Sensual oils, rich pigments,
Splashing love, easel standing,
Emotion’s raw canvas,

Our hands tightly clasping,
Squeezing images, perfect,
Hearts racing, our gasping,
The portrait, describing,
Our love, undiminished.

No models needed,
Our vision, our intimates,
Burnished, a smolder,
Rouge future beholden,
This moment, we own.

Heat, transmutation,
Internal, expressive,
Colliding, hearts beating,
Undoubted, eternal,
Our breath, whispers, now.

Passion’s paint, slowly drying,
Our forever, pure portrayal,
Slow sighing, soft warmth,
Eyes locked, lush embracing,
Destiny mastered,

Lovers’ artwork…

We are.

  1. Bill you are not less than a model, there is definitely beauty in your voice and I’m sure you exercise everyday at 5 in your body too!

    1. So…Tanya…you’ve exposed my weakness. Yes, I do leave for the gym at 0520 every day…or ride my exercise bike for an hour beginning at 0445. The day starts very early.

      As does life….

      So many thanks!!

      I just had this vision of a man and woman,…passion splayed like a Pollock on canvas.


      Incongruent…that’s the lush beauty I sought.

      Hopefully you felt that.

      Life is rich … isn’t it??
