Rated RI caught you hanging in The Tree,
Horizontally suspended between Heaven and Earth
Your breasts dangling like engorged mangos
Waiting to release their sweet elixir.
Your bare vulva like a wanting pomegranate
Longing to dilate its beautiful crown
To expose its dark, hidden secrets.
Your sparkling eyes like twins of cherries
Laugh and cry, and stare and gaze
Revealing wisdom from bygone days.
Your smile like golden plums
Reflect the light of a thousand suns.
And your curvy waist and ample hips
Is a pear longing to be held in my grip.
Your skin, like a silky peach
So smooth, so flawlessly drawn
Soft and giving under my gentle touch.
And your fragrance, yes your fragrance
Like an over-ripe persimmon
Exuding the smell of paradise itself.

And there you levitate until ready to fall
Soaking up the last rays of the setting sun
And then, as the night descends
Down, down you slowly come
Into my arms and into my heart.
And as I carefully peel you layer by layer
And drink of your succulent juices
I am intoxicated by your sweetness
Filled by your fomenting spirit,
And I know that to taste you is to know you
And to know you is to love you.

I am a late-comer to poetry especially Jewish-laced love poetry. In the last two years I have written about 50 such poems that I am now trying to publish under the title - The Metaphysics of Love. They are about love - love for women as a metaphor for the Divine love - sometimes employing very erotic images inspired by the Song of Songs and Kabbalistic literature.
