Slipping into night
Undressed... exposed
To dark shadows
Love worn corners
Beneath wet fingertips
Electric touch
Her spine arced to him
He bends with her
Becoming wind
In one breath
Melting every moment
Before him
Silk of her wings
Wrapped his every move
Like freshly dried sheets
Warm against his skin

Tastefully sensual, erotic. Perfect way to end the day! Thank you.

Highlighting the sensual quality of the wind, the caress of the earth's breath-on-skin...strong yet, as Brian put it, gentle imagery, a soothing touch of nature.
