Sumptuous

 

A touch of finger tips across

 

white linen as red wine is served

 

in tall-stems sets the moment,

 

eyes meeting , communicating

 

things to come

 

 

A perfect bouquet from the glasses

 

held over polished plates of rare

 

delights hardly touched as the two

 

talk and find reason to slip a morsel

 

or two on the other’s plate.

 

 

After polite adieus with the genial

 

staff, the pair wanders slowly

 

to the elevator that lifts them

 

and their spirits in anticipation

 

of slow love in the glow of darkness.

I can feel the undercurrents of this interlude. "glow of darkness" is nice.

Well, Franklin, it was meant as a compliment. If it didn't come across that way, I'm sorry.

Being something of a people-watcher myself, I enjoyed this. Just the right amount of information and assumption. Nice one Franklin. G. :icon_sunny:
