My Taj Mahal
First, while suited to the Kama Sutra, this piece doesn't work with the Taj, which I have visited and which is dedicated to the memory of the beloved not to the physicality of the relationship. Second, you confuse India with Arabia which makes this problematic. Yes, it is a Muslim-built edifice, but it is far from Arabia for all its seemingly Arabian architecture. I honestly find this poem too intense with no sense of real sensuality. Sure, for example, the word impervious has great sounds, but his does impenetrable desire work in love?

On the other hand, the sonorous quality of the lines is impressive and for that I applaud you.

The Golden Gate
This is excellent and leaves a message as is meant in all writing. If I was to find myself (in your writing), I would be one of them wounded by a past, darkened path.

This is lovely! I especially love the phrase "silken bristles dipped in wine". The words flow beautifully and conjure so many images. Thank you for sharing!

The Golden Gate
This is language at its best. Every line is loaded with meaning and delicious feeling. The message is delivered with great clarity and skillful design. It is prose; it is poetry; it is philosophy, and it is a tribute to love and commitment that is unequaled. I worry that it is too pure and possessive, because life is challenging, humans are not gods, and none are so close to perfection as the words suggest. But, I hope the passion remains forever and the love sustains this author through a long and satisfying life. She certainly knows something about appreciating the "mingling and merging of energies" and "nurturing, nourishing, healing, and loving". Oh, to be young again!

"I'll swallow inhibitions frost
and melt it down at any cost"
What an incredible line...and once again you have generated a remarkable picture, descriptive elegance with power and burning desire.

The Crown of Wealth
Another very strong piece, obviously...your rhymes are exquisite and the analogy to a painter is fabulous..."Elation's peaks to entertain"...wow, very nice. The rhyme is erotic in itself.

My Taj Mahal
While the subject matter is mature, I see no reason for warnings. This is intensely descriptive and certainly erotic, but tastefully so with imaginative allusions to sexual encounter...this 4th stanza is absolutely amazing. I had to read that several times to really grasp what is being described.

Your opening chapter is a wonderfully lyrical way to pitch the book, so to speak. I look forward to more, and I love that you dedicate it to the man who inspires you.

Wow you really tell it like it is--with some people. But not me. I've been celebate for 13 yrs since I divorced my husband I love the solitude. Have not even one little spark of sexual desire. I believe what you're saying is true. I had that with my husband for 28 yrs. But I don't need it any more. Your depiction of that kind of bliss is excellent. I never read anything better on the subject. You are very wise.

    Delora, it is not celibacy which can lead us to God, but God, Who leads us to celibacy... I believe there is so much of God's perfect energies of love and light pouring through you, you just don't need that sort of momentary pleasure...
