Night's Conquest

Picture by Dana Dampier

Stardust peppers my lashes
Setting eyes aglow
As moon beams flame my soul
Night crawls atop me as I rest on bare earth
Embracing my curves
Whispering... whispering breathlessly
Against pale skin
Seducing me toward darkness
Promising endless pleasures
Pleasure to no end...

Dana

  2. Lovely. The moon definitely is seductive, isn't it? It never loses its pull, and one has to give in.

    1. Yes... it's one of my blue moon pics. I've been wanting to start using some of my pictures and this was the perfect oppurtunity.

    1. Your wonderful! I say the same thing about other poets I admire. I'm always wishing I could write more like them. I've been trying to come to terms with it though. We each have our own writing style. That's what sets us apart from other poets and makes us unique. Poetry would get boring if it was all the same!

To have great poets... there must be great audiences
~ Walt Whitman

Thank you for being that audience!
