passions #poetry

i seek you

like roots seek water

the thirst which blasts into 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

blue hands of nightly ghosts insinuate onto my skin

i’m dragging 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.
