This is the first time I've posted anything here. These are two poems I wrote yesterday and am still perfecting. Any feedback, positive or negative is appreciated. If you are going to criticise, please do it constructively and not rudely. Any suggestions, especially for a title for the first one, are welcome!

Untitled

On our ethereal plane
far away we fly,
drifting together
towards sweet dreams,
as you drink deeply
of mother's nectar,
and I breathe in
your calming sweetness.



A Mother's Lullaby
Hazel eyes meet mine
drooping with fatigue
shimmering with secrets
only known in youth.

Small fingers graze my face
velvet against my skin
exploring my features
with infancy's tender touch.

That peaceful expression
bathed in silver glow
soothes my tired soul
with a child's serenity.

Near silent suckling
and sighs of content
sing me to sleep--
this mother's lullaby.

Ooooo, thanks for sharing those. I love both of them, and they totally just lifted my mood of general pissed-offedness. (I'm pms-ing in a major way.)

I LOVE the first one especially. It totally took me to the moment of nursing my babes off to sleep, including breathing in their luscious scent. Maybe "Sweet Dreams" for a title?

Thank you. I am glad you like it, and that does sound like a very fitting title!
