Incense Of Olibanum

Incense Of Olibanum Marjoram bushes
weave together with petal roots of black narcissus,
as coiling floral garland wreaths are gingerly adorned
with sacristies of lotus flowers... 

Perfuming our senses
we lit candlestick pillars
rolled from brown beeswax
and cotton dipped wicks
fragrantly perfuming
inside the scent of fresh honey...

Our souls illuminated
under the canvasing reflection of tea lights
we set to float in the stillness of calm waters
warming our thoughts with sensuous desires,
as we shared the secrets of bouquet's royal jelly...

She offered to reveal
within her filigree flacon
the cloaks of her seduction-
placing over her silken hair pure water streams
and henna with pollen rich stamen stems...

I seen her magnanimous insignia
adorned with gardenia blossoms
and intimate ceremonial red berries.
The olive of her kohl drawn eyes
walked through my soul
as the incense of olibanum continued to bathe my heart
burning with saturant emotions...

interesting read
Reviewed by Jon Willey 7/5/2010
when bathing was very much a ritualistic event give great attention to detail -- every facet alive with its special significance -- "with sacristies of lotus flowers" a line I am much taken to -- Vickie, surely, no more beautiful, ritualistic nor fabled flower exists than the lotus blossom -- may peace and love be always with you my friend --
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 7/5/2010
This poem makes me remember that old times were really the good ones...now we seems to go minimalist and industrial perfumed.
