In That Place


In That Place

In That Place

Arching back against a solid oak tree

Taking the cool night air in

 Hearts rejoiced in a pounding beat

Bodies rocked in a blinding heat


 A storm whips two souls into a whirl

Tumult ensues as blood rushes

Bliss and fury rise to deliver passion

Affixed to that place we were, in infinity it seems


It stands alone, that place right now

Calling to that lascivious encounter

Evermore it will need it again and again

Feeling its life and purpose all for that place in time


Fireflies danced and memories were made

Eternity exploded and collapsed into one


-M. Jacobs

This is an artist's creation out from a loving state. Marion, this is so alluring that It is hard not to live through the passage. Your words are very captivating. Great write ma'am!



I love it that you say live through the passage, it's a place that I go to in my mind, quite often and it fills me with happiness.

Memorys of days gone by. Your poem is a nice refletion of are memorys up to now. Short and to the point with a soft side around it.



I have a lot of nice memories and ones that are like snapshots in my mine. This is a little peek at one. So glad you enjoyed it.

Another interesting piece! You convey the story so well that the reader feels like a voyeur who's sneaking a peek at an intimate encounter .... leaving the voyeur breathless. As I've commented before on many of your poems .... You certainly have a way with words! : ) ..... Ken



Thanks Ken, it was written about a memory of an actual encounter of mine and I wanted to seal it in time. I am so pleased you found it interesting. many have shared that they have similar memories and it brought back something special to them. Ty

Excellent piece brings back childhood memories, so descriptive and imaginative. 10 from me.

Another great poem...from a very talented poet...i love your work...'Fireflies danced and memories were made' reminds me of catching fireflies as a child...i don't see as many of them anymore...



Thanks Rey, i am pleased you enjoyed it.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
