the rhythm of castanets awakens the moon
on opal rings your kisses spin
a cricket’s hitting a crescendo
waves tattoo dark shadows on your skin…

luscious as each word rolls off my tongue, so beautiful G,
Thank you so much, Gina. Your wonderful words touch my heart.
these are really spun from air, light and seductive, am always in awe of your talent
Aw, I am really humbled. I am in owe of your talent too 😉 Mesmerize me with your beautiful stories!
oh, sending you lots of hugs, Gina.
sending you 10 hearts!
Your word choice is truly very excellent! The word twist and turn which make the road just very interesting.
Thank you, Watt. Your appreciation means a lot to me.
I could have used more twists and turns 🙂
Seduced … yet again.
Aw.. thank you, Eric.
Remember I believe “her” not “him” 🙂
I hope the writing is going well!
Ah, the writing- well, it’s going on! And yes, I’m smiling in my English way!
I am glad to hear that, Eric.
Now to your smile: 3/4 English and 1/4 Scottish ?
Full English as in breakfast …
Thank you so much, Valerie.
Taking a wild guess here, so I will say…..
Good evening G.
I have come to the conclusion Spillwords Press has exceptionally good taste. Cricket hitting a crescendo, castanets awaken the moon. Beautiful lines in this stunning composition of love and poetry
I know the original meaning of the story is of greed, but the modern day version of Midas touch is the best way to describe your poetry. Everything you touch, the moon, mud, etc, you make it all so alluring. You breathe life into everything you write. Your verses are an elegant ballet where your words dance off the page.
Enjoy the breeze and sunset. Have a gorgeous evening my dear friend.
Good afternoon, Drew
Thank you so much for the high praise and the beautiful comment. It warms my heart.
Wishing you a fabulous rest of the day.
Enjoy yours G. Sunset should be coming soon.
Make it yours. Let it inspire you.
Thank you, Drew.
Make sure you enjoy yours. Stay inspired 🙂

How do you imagine? How do you think? What do you think? Hmmmm I want to read one of your novel.
Aw… I am hearing from one of my dearest friends. What a pleasure.

I’ll write to you soon, Ankit.

erotismo raffinatissimo, bellissima poesia
Grazie mille, Flavio. Bella traduzione di un grande poeta:YOU
Do you remember this? I keep your translations in a separate file. I read them often. They mean a lot to me.
il ritmo delle nacchere risveglia la luna
sugli anelli opalici i tuoi baci fanno girare
un cricket che colpisce un crescendo
onde tatuano ombre scure sulla tua pelle
sonorità, tu che vibri le anime
di coloro che infestano di notte il porto di Cartagena
Lancio gli odori di albicocche e pennacchi
la Mano di Fatima toglie i miei veli la
tua fronte sprofonda nel sudore degli amanti
che recidono le loro vene
oh, sogna l’ignoto,
tu, la latenza,
il sospiro di sangue che scorre
in primavera sia il fango che i fiori crescono
non lo sapevi
che quando hai detto che ti amo
hai calpestato strade di favole e racconti popolari?
hai incollato il tuo cuore su un tramonto viola
odori di lilla e di rose, passeggiate impregnate,
non ero io
che ti rubavi l’anima
Buona giornata, Flavio!
mi lusinghi, grazie e buona giornata a te!
Congratulations! Every time I read your work I’m drawn in all over again. I find the line about the road of fables and folktales especially evocative – the road where anything can and will happen and the possibilities are limitless.
Hey there David,
Thank you so much. I am thrilled you liked the poem.
“I find the line about the road of fables and folktales especially evocative – the road where anything can and will happen and the possibilities are limitless.” Oh, I like that. I feel the same.
David, thank you once again for your help. Know that I appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
Enjoy your day.
Hiya, G! You’re welcome, of course.
Yay! I’m glad you like it.
You’re welcome, too, for the help. It was no bother at all, and you’ve also helped me, which I also appreciate.
Wishing you a good evening,
David, I am in Europe and I am so jet lagged. I did not expect a reply from you, When you wrote back I was wondering why did David write back so soon? It’s very early in the morning. I guess it’s not early morning home 🙂
Have a fabulous evening, David 🙂
😄 How funny. In that case good morning and enjoy your trip!
Thank you so much, David. I’ll be in touch 🙂
You did it again oh wonderful one.
Thank you so much! I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂
🙂YOU are very graciously welcome so much! I am glad YOU wrote it.🙂
You are very kind 🙂
🙂YOU are a great lady to be kind to.🙂
Your poetic passion of words are too hot for my computer screen. My fingers barely can touch the keyboard to type out a response. 🙂 Lovely job! I’d love create a fine firery prose as yours to present DH on our upcoming anniversary. This will be our 40th and we certainly share more than a spark. 😉
My Dear Kathy,
Such high praise. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am humbled by your words.
May your 40th be filled with happiness. May you be loved and happy forever.
I have been trying to get to this all day, and what a treat now I have…. it was seduction that stole his soul… who would not want to be stolen by such luscious seduction, I bet he left the key in plain sight and hoped it would be found…. seduction so seductive it has a persona of its own. Love this G.
And these lines:
a cricket’s hitting a crescendo waves tattoo dark shadows on your skin…
This is sigh worthy and so vividly beautiful. So …. seductive!!
I hope your travels so far are every bit as beautiful as this poem.
Thank you so my my dearest R. Your comment is beautiful. It seduced me.
Sending you the best wishes ever.
Hugs and love to you!
And to you my friend. 💜💜💜
