“I wish to see you walk through the Arco de Elvira, to find out your name and shed a tear.” Federico García Lorca.
a violet sunset laments in the city
saps of triolets flow on my neck
I stretch inside your memory
like felines on grasslands
a lily cries
my bracelets dangle
the eyes of candles flicker in your Spanish nights
fingers of lascivious desires
steal from my neck the saps of triolets
play your magical guitars
unleash the beauty hidden in your walls
the frenzy of the flesh which dies
into the ardent gestures of your dance
under La Puerta de Elvira
yesterday two lovers met
I wait in tears
for the love
which knows the mysteries of triolets

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.
Good morning G. An intriguing finale that spurs the heart and teases the imagination. Beautiful images so expertly painted by the WordPress Michelangelo of poetry.
When I woke, I thought it was going to be a beautiful day, you just made it even more beautiful.
Good morning, Drew! Oh… Thank you so much for the high praise! I am really glad that it intrigues and it teases you 🙂
Drew, can I please be Leonardo, instead of Michelangelo? Only for one day 🙂
You are Leonardo everyday.

On a different note, do you get my comments to your poems?
Hmmm… not sure that I do. Thank you for asking. Do you recall roughly when the last might have been? Maybe a spam filter is blocking. I’ll check and see.
I left several comments. I recall I left one on a gorgeous poem … oh, Argentine… and probably one the other day. Thank you for checking 🙂
Thank you! I will check and reply to this comment thread. 😊
Well…I didn’t see any spam. It’s probably just me being stupid. I’m really good at that. 🙂
