Even the most no-nonsense, by-the-books people can have their hearts ignited with the right type of kindling. In her new book, "A Lover's Rapture: Passionate Poetry" (now available through AuthorHouse) Maura Burd slowly stokes the fires to engulf young lovers everywhere.
"Once enveloped by the alluring wings of rapture, enticing adventures do often abound," writes Burd. The powerful verse in A Lover's Rapture, which is the sequel to her stimulating first collection, A Lover's Whisper (also available through AuthorHouse), "explores the mystical bond of sensuality between harmonious lovers."
The following poem, "The Sound of Your Voice," illustrates her rich tone as she explores the ethereal world of exquisite pleasures.
The sweet taste of remembrance/ Dancing starlight upon my view/ Drawing in the equivalence/ Of our love's reflection and hues/ It's the purest form of rapture/ Two souls can ever meet/ As we're thrust into the core of stature/ Our ripe fruits nestle…hidden…discreet/ We meld…we whirl on a fragment/ Too sapient to possibly fathom/ Yet the view is pristine…subliminal/ As we rise from out of the chasm/ And then I hear your voice…/ Oh, its sound just pulls me under!/ The quiet roar of infinity/ Recalling lifetimes within your thunder/ My soul bursts with ecstasy/ My thoughts collide with thee!/ You weave into my vibration/ And engrave me with your decree/ Your mark upon my soul is fixed/ Your command…my visceral need/ I'll live each breath in pause…in wait/ For the rush of your voice in me to bleed
Burd bestows readers with "Eros' Kiss," details an "Immortal Legacy" and conjures up "The Alchemist" to set the perfect mood for uninhibited bliss. A rhythmic movement of verse illuminated by the poet's deep passion, A Lover's Rapture sets free the hopeless seeker of sensuality in everyone.
A published romance writer, Burd creates both short stories and poetry. In addition to "A Lover's Whisper" and "A Lover's Rapture", she published a paranormal romance collection titled "White Light Parallel: 8 Stories of Love" (also available through AuthorHouse). Her poems have been featured in the anthologies, Poetic Voices and Treasured Poems of America (Sparrowgrass Poetry Forum). She received the Golden Poet award from World of Poetry.
A Lover's Rapture - Passionate Poetry (ISBN 9781418494858) is available at all major bookstores and AuthorHouse.
