the dance of Isabella #poetry

come and watch the dance of Isabella

the rhythm of castanets awakes the moon

her body tilts the oleander axis of the wind

her hips rotate into the autumn of the fires


an iguana stumbles on profuse desires

opening her eyes on Isabella’s chest

your forehead sinks into the sweat of lovers

who step onto the boats which never will return


watch how Isabella dances

wreaths of conquerors at her feet gleam

lizards from forgotten winters

tattoo her body on your skin


and in the shadows of the lips which spin

locked in the mansion by the lake

i love you more than anybody else

yet you don’t know

because for you i’m just a dream

  1. Good morning. A seductive poem that would have conquerors and paupers gleaming at Isabella’s feet. Love your name choice. I have always loved all those different ‘Bella names. Gorgeous finale, too. Your writing entertains, enchants, and inspires.
