A voice made of honey
that can tickle the soul.
Warm comfort so sunny,
test of true self control.

Sweet yet savory words,
clog up every last pore,
deep emotions are heard,
overflows empty core.

Fragrant aroma hues,
penetrates eager nose,
idyllic great views,
can be seen with eyes closed.

Mesmerized by sweet chants
hidden within this voice.
The most powerful trance,
holds free will without choice.

A magical mystique,
rings a clear silent bell.
Forceful temptations peak,
withstand powerful spell.

Upset by the laughter,
pure souls visibly shake.
Dissolves each disaster,
unmasks deceiving snake.

  1. This is such an awesome poem Grace. It was all sounding a bit too good to be true and then you clenched it with that last line:
    “Dissolves each disaster,
    unmasks deceiving snake.”
    All the world is a stage and you blew the cover.
    Great imagery and write Grace! Brilliant❣️

  2. Wow Grace! This is so elegant and luscious in poetic brilliance. The rhyming and the melodic flow make this such a treat to read. Amazingly done as always, my friend πŸ€πŸ€—

      1. You’re most welcome- it was like reading a dance…. Like beating feet tracing each note line to line… thank you for writing!
