eternally tied #poetry

time latently braids

your words and mine

bodies of marble

eternally tied

 

are our ruby kisses

shrines

of hellenistic lovers

suspended in delight?

  1. Time latently braids your words with mine…now why couldn’t I think of something like that? I may as well crown you the mistress of metaphors and happily so. I am in love with metaphors as you may have figured by now and if there’s any poetess here on WP who leaves me in awe with the use of metaphors and figurative speech, it is you. The word latent is so important here and used with such finesse to drive home the idea of a love/union that was meant to be but has been silent for reasons only the lovers know. Honestly, the first verse gripped my attention so hard I found it difficult to move on to the second

    Ruby kisses…great analogy. I had once written on sapphire promises among other such things.

     
    1. Oh, my dearest Nandita, thank you for your gorgeous analysis. I am humbled by your words. You are not only extremely talented but you are also a very intelligent and refined critic. “he word latent is so important here and used with such finesse to drive home the idea of a love/union that was meant to be but has been silent for reasons only the lovers know” yes, that’s it. “sapphire promises” royal, enduring, beautiful. Send me when you have time more about. Thank you again!

       
  2. This is so beautifuuly penned. and I loved the opening lines “Time latently braids

    your words and mine” This is epitome of love laced in the beautiful conversation heart never fails to forget. Love this one.

     
    1. Oh. Thank you so much! Epitome of love.. very grateful for your beautiful words!

       
  3. There is no time for Amur and Psyche! Classicism in this poem is perfectly protected by the elegance of the phrase and the tension in expectation visible to the reader and to the sculptural composition of Canova (1 November 1757 – 13 October 1822). In this sense, I admire Nadynda’s analysis. The inclusion of “shrines” as immobility refers to the Hellenistic understanding of the delight, and regardless of the question , the answer has already been given.

     
    1. Oh, thank you so much for your erudite and beautiful analysis, my dear B. As you know your words mean a lot to me. And yes, indeed, the answer has already been given.
      It’s a answer cut in marble.
      As usually, delighted that you read my poems. Thank you!

       
      1. Ah, unfortunately, I can not express in plain words my sense of your fine and profound poetry. Truly, as an Ionic capital, are your images. Pleasure is all mine!

         
      2. Oh… I said it many times, my dear B: you are too sweet to me. Thank you!
