passions #poetry

I seek you
like roots seek water
the thirst which blasts within the rhythms of castanets
in Andalusia of the flamenco dancers dressed in red
I see you
the face of the lost stranger
dissimulating grief in autumn shadows
killed by the aurora borealis in the southern hemisphere
I feel you
dreams of wild young tigers
ravaging the flesh of prey with their teeth
in the Sahara of my burning suns the fate plays games
I chase you
the hands of nightly ghosts insinuate onto my skin
I drag you
into the lands of spells which crawl
passions strike
till all is left from us
are ashes in a bowl

    1. My dearest Y! Thank you so much for the praise. You know that every word coming from you brightens my day!
      May my Queen of Poetry have a day filled with sunshine and love!

       
      1. Ouch.. I don’t know what’s up with my site. I cannot reply to your last comment but here:

        “The queen of romance should have her knight in shining armour.” Ay… you are so sweet. Where do I buy a shining armor? Where do I get a knight from my dear Y?

        LOL

        You are the best, Y!

        Before I can have a “day” I have to wake up, 🙂 I’m working on. 🙂

        Oh, on Thursday I will announce that I will be busy for 4 weeks. I have guests in my home. Also will be traveling to Rhode Island, Niagara Falls, and Miami.

        But I will be reading blogs. Just not posting.
