smoky kisses linger
in a fool’s wild heart
prisoner of the dark angel’s velvet smile
devoured by haunted lips
her dance of desire

This poem was written in response to Colleen’s Double Ennead Challenge No. 7 at Carrot Ranch. We were instructed to use the Magnetic Poetry Oracle and write one stanza with syllables 6/5/11/6/5.

    • Thanks, Sandra. It was a challenge. And thanks so much for the review on The Sorcerer’s Garden. I’m glad you enjoyed that one. I have one of your books waiting in my kindle for September! 🙂

    Wow, evocative and provocative, Diana. I see I am not the only one who zeroed in on the “velvet smile.” You have a gift with words and this is not the first time you are hearing this. ❤️

    • Thanks for the lovely comment, Erica. Yes, the velvet smile was a hit. Lol. I think I used it because it was the right number of syllables. Lol. You never know what’s going to work. Have a wonderful day, my friend and thanks for stopping by!
