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.

  1. 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!

  2. O Wow, Sanaa ~~ You started so innocently and then, things just snuck up on me, pleasant and sensuous. Written very nicely.

  3. 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.
