In this dream,

light my cigarette from the glowing

tip of your own.

I propose we fly away.

We sip red wine and slip

into a bluer state where

along a dark corridor with high

windows we sway within

our satin dream.

Your dark eyes whip my mind

into arousal and your elegant hand

caressing the length of my thigh

turns me soft inside.

Your breath is a sigh at my ear that

whispers my hair and crimson lips

so near devours your resistance.

Against waves of longing and desire

dreams are what it could be like.

Far below among the blackthorn

hares chase foxes

and Roebucks hunt hunters.

To shield me from the terror you

press my face against your chest.

We are breathing molecules into

the light and a slight glimmer of red

rises in the east.

It would be easy now to fly.

      1. Always an honor and privilege to read and share your posts, Holly!! I keep reading about all the bad Covid news about Florida and I think of you and yours and send up a prayer for you all to be safe and healthy! Both of our Governors are Bat Sh*t crazy, cold hearted and evil not to care that 95% of those dying of Covid are unvaccinated and most from their base! It appears that Civics needs to be taught again in high school so people know what the hell a Public Health Emergency is and how it restricts your personal freedoms. I hear you laughing – a little too much to expect, isn’t it!!

        1. Dear Chuck, it’s heartbreaking to see what’s happening in these red states. People dying of heart attack snd stroke sent from hospital to hospital but there’s no room that isn’t filled with unvaccinated Covid patients. I have lost all patience with the governor and think he should be recalled. Your governor is a spiteful evil authoritarian as well. Be safe Chuck and thank you for thinking of me , it means a lot. ❀️

  1. You are a master with your words, Holly. I don’t know anyone describing a few moments by abducting us into your bubble and making them appear like one endless moment.

  2. I adore this!

    I’ve always wanted to hold a fox.
    It’s a dream.
    Oh, not exactly like the dream you have penned so passionately. Nonetheless, a dream that you have evoked.

    Der Holly,
    Sorry I’m late to the party!
    I’ve been tied up with insanity. I might do a Christmas movie for Hallmark. Just spoke with the director. She’s lovely!
    It’s a quickie, 7 weeks. Will know by Monday!

      1. You are such a talented poet. I am never sure what to call you but I will call you Holly. I don’t know which name you prefer. Your work is amazing, trust me. You draw the reader in quickly and take us all for a wonderful ride. I worry about you. Please be extra careful. I know people that will not get vaccinated and one is a nurse. It is sad because we won’t be around them now. They also only wear mask when they have to. This I don’t understand. Please be careful dear Holly. I am praying for you. Sending love, hugs, blessings and prayers. β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ¦‹Joni

        1. You’re such a sweetheart Joni. Thank you so much. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayer, it’s very frustrating now and we are overwhelmed. Especially disturbed by all the people who refuse vaccines and then beg for help as they are about to go on a ventilator. It’s heartbreaking, we lost my ex mother in law last May. She was a Trump follower and believed that Covid was a far left conspiracy. Now everyone is heartbroken at her suffering and her daughter is beyond distraught. I think it’s very selfish to refuse a mask and a vaccine. Thank you lovely. You stay safe. Sending love. β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ€—πŸŒΉ

          1. Thank you so much for sharing. I will pray for you every day Holly. You are a blessing to each and every patient you treat. There have been over a 115,000 worldwide cases of death among health care workers,as a result of Covid worldwide, and 3,600 died the first year of the pandemic in the United States. With the new Delta variant which is far more contagious there will be many more. We have been vaccinated and still wearing our mask even when not required. We should not have a problem but we are doing it to protect others. Yesterday was my mother and law’s Memorial. She was already ill with cancer and then she got COVID. She died not long after that diagnosis. You are a hero and I salute you truly. We should all be praying or thinking of all health care workers right now. We did remote viewing as we were not about to get on a plane. It is beyond selfish, and political status does not change science. That should have been the focus and it wasn’t. The decisions should not have come from a person without expert medical training, President or not.

            Again, bless you sweetie and know you have a big family in the community and what ever religion each person is part of, I am sure you are in their thoughts. Love you Holly, πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ‘©β€βš•οΈπŸ‘©β€βš•οΈπŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸš‘πŸ₯🩺 and bless all the other health care workers as well.

  3. Fly, fly… (Nat King Cole)
    There’s a Cole song that goes “Fly, fly, little…” can’t remember the rest or find it. (I think I have the single at home. I’ll look it up. Meantime? keep flying)

          1. Well, pining for France and a Viking tour along the Rhine. Two years ago or was it three I flew to Switzerland and joined the. Viking tour there. It was amazing though I didn’t have enough time to settle anywhere. Never really has a desire to visit Asian countries.

          2. I remember your trip. 3 I think. I also remember your lack of desire for Asia. For me it’s probably close to some of my roots. I lived in Cambodia when I was 3. My first memories are from then. And I just loved our month of traveling in 2017-18.
            Tschüß.
