Lovers’ Aria

Your finger tips,
Arching to a lover’s trill,
Tracing clef’s curves,
Playing, caressing,
Tuning my cheek,

Tuning my will,

Etching sparks of musicality
Across my stubble,
While your eyes tease
Secret orchestras,
Playing soft melodies
For me.

Whisper sensuous refrains,
Your lips playing each note,
Arias our kiss, singing,
“Che gelida manina,”
La boheme, on our tongues…

And I succumb,
Yet again,
Inhaling, Adagio,
Our passion’s lush voice,
Sensual, Espressivo.

    1. So many thanks, Dorothy. I love the analogy of a soaring aria to the soaring of a relationship. Simple. Just me.

      Hope you have a wonderful evening!

    1. Glorious.

      The music…the words…the emotion.

      I absolutely appreciate these jewels of life. Do you know what I mean? I listened to a Pavarotti recording of that La Boheme aria when he was a young man. Caught my breath.

      Oh…the rich pleasures of life.

      Made my Friday. And my friend, you made my Friday as well with your generous and so supportive comments.

      Thank you!

      1. Oh Pavarotti has such an amazing voice! I also love Andrea Bocelli’s version, too. It really is a powerful piece!

        Yes, those little moments in life, the little pleasures… that’s what makes life just grand, right?

        So happy you had a beautiful Friday and even more thrilled I contributed to your Friday goodness! You are so very welcome, my dear friend! I hope you have an amazing weekend ahead!

      2. I so agree with you. Pavarotti, Bocelli, Domingo, Carreras…I’m all in.


        Full stop.

        Are you with me?


        And then there’s your voice.

        So rich… so pure.

        Just sayin’.

        Hope you have a wonderful evening my friend!
