Black Lace Netting

 

Sea spills through netting
black lacing tide
with
intumescing
power~

Lovers witness spumescent sea’s
roped squares bathing
beneath
ballooning
moon~

Her black bikini drifts
sifting sand’s candescence
underneath
profiterole
cloudscape~

Champagne water licks, clinks
crystal kisses down
undercurrent’s
opalescent
bed~

Love effervesces starlight scales,
blackfishes flip blazed
Morning
Star’s
sunup~

Next evening spellbound sea’s
lace netting throbs
bioluminescent
clandestine
chiffon~

 

Ten Word Stanza

There is a great interest on various poetry sites to write 10 word poems at the moment. If you are interested they can be found on Google. As an experiment, I have written a poem with six stanzas, each stanza having ten words. The name of the poem is Black Lace Netting.
