A Journey Lesson On Softness

By The Dani WriterPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

Days when I wake up as clay

are most memorable.

Body pliant.

Yielding at slightest brush.

A coolness hands reach for

and remain

but firmness that clearly states,

“Take care with how you touch me again”

I recede where fingers press

expand where pressure’s less

channel flesh to turn where you suggest.

I am suppleness personified

while you ponder

renew incumbent thoughts

and delight in endless choices,

the pause ‘ere pleasure’s expression

sings a myriad of voices

as moisture calls

as earth I answer

words gentle yet sure

that place me center

as spinning starts

as water drips

raised to heights and depths

with endless grips

for glistening wetness

that shan’t find lips.

A living artwork,

dynamic form.

I am release personified,

a resonant rotational sphere.

I am breaths with which one sighed

since I joy in axial adoration,

a dance I know too well.

It is bliss to be thus fashioned.

Ecstasy to be so held

stretched to sheerness sleekness shape.

I am fluid curves in motion

aromatic oils and smoothest lotion

galaxies consumed by universal ocean.


I birthed a night full of dreams

to summon fruition today.

I always bring easy


some hands are not

but to awaken as holy vessel retains lessons

seldom easily forgot.

    Well this was a sumptious and powerful piece. Loved how positive it was, as Dharr said. And as Randy alluded, you truly have a gifted touch for eloquence in poetry...eloquence, clever and never without deep emotion. Loved this piece a lot! Well done.

  • Gosh this was so positive, uplifting and powerful! Loved your poem! Merry Christmas! 🥰🥰🥰

  • Words so eloquently subtle & exquisitely malleable, but only to the finest touch. The brute clumsiness of my words can provide no answer to evoke the wondrous responses of which you speak. In other words, well said, Dani. Now I think I'll go take a cold shower & think about my life choices.
