Greetings and welcome to Poets on Display during National Poetry Month/Blogging From A to Z April Challenge. I’m doing a poetry theme, so each day this month I feature poets from the book Sunrise Summits: A Poetry Anthology, which was recently selected as a finalist for the 2017 Colorado Book Awards in the anthology category (information about the awards can be found by Clicking Here).
It’s an honor for me to continue to share the work of those who contributed to Northern Colorado Writers first poetry anthology and to have this work selected as an award finalist. The poets included are a shining example of the talent found in Northern Colorado Writers, LLC.
The poem posted below is not from the anthology. This way you get a wider read of each poet’s work. It’s been a challenge to get the poems to fit the letter theme, but I think I’ve worked it out. I hope you enjoy what you read here.
Today’s Poem: Ecstasy by Belle Schmidt
Your virginal white, perfectly rounded curves
beckon; your faint vanilla scent sets
my nostrils aquiver. I’m in a fever,
anticipating the pleasure that awaits.
I inhale deeply, my titillated tastebuds
whipped into a frenzy. Tentatively,
the tip of my tongue touches your whiteness and
softly you yield. Oh, sweet ecstasy!
Suddenly, the world is as silent as an empty
cathedral and nothing exists
beyond the two of us.
My eyes close while your sweetness slips into
my mouth. My tongue licks and flicks,
then delves deep into your center. You fill
my senses and fulfill my passion.
You are irresistible,
you and your provocative curl –
Dairy Queen soft ice cream.
