Adonis amurensis

Spread the love

Adonis-amurensis-Fukujukai-4

The fragrance of your body;
Obscures vision, dulls the senses.
Not wishing wine nor weed;
Have laid down defenses.

The Adonis petals;
Tempting amorous mouth.
The heart now radiant;
Redolent of beloved South.

Sweet flower, given myself to you;
Let me follow, and linger indivisible.
The portals of sanctuary unseen;
Accept an offering, quite whimsical.

The night is warm;
Our love so deep.
Music lulling;
Our mind asleep.

The air so sweet;
Sweet as flute.
We lie here loving;
Passionate and mute.

    Wow! I’ve never thought of the South that way, but here it is in beauty, desire and flower. I note, too, from the myth, that he lives and dies for women and is forever reborn. Given this, the way your poem ends is luscious!

  11. The last stanza is magnificent. Both because I love being able to taste flute (that sounds a tad awkward), and because the final line leaves us in an almost shocking silence.
