profuse desires #poem #poetry

rolling like waves on white marble sands
roaring like tigers looking for prey
howling like winds in gray towns of ghosts
resting on sofas like courtesans
praying like nuns married to Christ
your raspy deep voice
dying for love

    1. Thank you so much, Joni. I am really pleased you liked the poem and the image. Lots of hugs to you my dear.

  1. Hola G

    This is beautiful. Love how you ended this piece. Those last two lines – magnificent.

    Congrats on your being named author of the year. Well deserved. I would bow before you, but I am afarid it would cause dizziness.

    Hope you are well, smiling, and in the best of spirits. Your writing has been terribly missed.

    1. Hola, Drew, what a relief. Honest to God I got up with the clear thought that I have to write to you to see if everything is ok. And here you are ! I am so glad you are feeling better and Ali was there.

      Thank you for the congrats. Don’t bow yet. Let’s wait a bit.
      I missed your writing too, Drew. I hope you get back to it soon.
      Have a marvelous day, my friend.
      Stay out of trouble ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Stay out of trouble, huh? LOL
        I am currently in feeding the pidgeons and ducks mode. Still admiring sunset. Staying light years away from trouble.

        Over two months with no drink. And just as long without coffee. Even I don’t believe it.

        Have a good one. Great to touch with you.

      2. Ah, no coffee. That must be hard on you. Everything else is easy to stay away from ๐Ÿ™‚
        Be well, Drew. Again I hope you can get back to writing soon.
        Best wishes

      1. I am glad to hear he is better. Now, you need to take care of yourself. I hope that headache goes away soon.

    1. How did you know I was talking about you? Haha! Thank you Brad,. You are a true friend.
      Enjoy the rest of your day.

  2. Hello Gabriela, and yet I cannot get enough of what you write, although this one is a gem! Beautiful images and a great ending, plus this incredible line that I see in my mind… “…howling like winds in gray towns of ghosts…”
    lovely in every sense.
    So happy to read this,
    Saludos y abrazos de Valencia,

    1. Muchas gracias, Francisco. You are wonderful and you are really spoiling me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am glad you liked that line. I like it the most too.
      I read your most recent poem. I left a comment. I said it was devastating in its beauty. Can you please get me out of your spam folder? I am under the emotion that your verses caused and I cannot breathe well in that folder.
      un abrazo americano
      And what have I done wrong today that I do not get any updates on Valencia?

      1. It is a beautiful line as is the entire poem…well, Valencia today was very sunny and warm. It was a day to enjoy the park, the river or even the beach. Imagine in February and 18 degrees! So it was quite a lovely day. I will most certainly get you out of the spam immediately!
        Big hug from the Levante,

      2. Thank you again. Oh, sunny and warm: parks, rivers, breaches. May each of them bring joy in your life.
        “Imagine in February and 18 degrees!” Oh, imagine that and even better than that. I used to live in Miami.
        I got your hugs from the East ๐Ÿ™‚ Big hugs from the West.

      3. That must have been a lovely day. I hope you made the best of it.
        abrazos para ti, Francisco.

    1. Aw … sweetheart, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
      May you have an amazing and gorgeous week.

    1. Muchas gracias! I am so glad you liked this poem. Actually I am glad every time you like one of my poems.
      Have a wonderful rest of the day and thank you again for reading and commenting.

  3. The title of this could not be more perfect to describe this poem, and the poem nor more perfect to describe these words. Every line of this has such ferocity of passion yet such elegance. His raspy voice and that picture. I do think I just sighed.

    You earned your chocolates today my dear friend. And the love and hugs too xoxoxo

    1. Thank you, thank you, thank you my dearest Rachel. It’s 2am here again. I enjoy our nocturnal conversations. I mean nocturnal for me ๐Ÿ™‚
      “ferocity of passion: oh, I love that.
      “His raspy voice and that picture.” Haha! that picture. The guy is cool. I think he needs a towel and a suit ๐Ÿ™‚
      “You earned your chocolates today my dear friend. And the love and hugs too”. I am so grateful to you, Rachel. Can I get some flowers from the other hemisphere too? Am I high maintenance? I worked 16 hours today. And like most of my colleagues I am taking plenty of Niagen to keep going. Who knows what that really does? But since it was developed by the MIT guys most of us are taking it.
      Rachel, thank you so much for being so sweet and for being you. Please know that I think about it.
      Have a beautiful…. what day is there Rachel?
      Plenty of love and hugs to you.

      1. Yes, flowers from the other hemisphere being sent as we speak. How about something decadent for this time of night? Blood red roses perhaps. Fragrant and wild. Left at your doorstep, tied with twine and with a note.

        Ferocity of passion, yes. I see this whitewashed seaside town (for some reason I feel like saying Portugal but I know itโ€™s probably more likely Spain, or even Greece), wind rushing through deserted streets, cobbled streets and quaint churches, passion at every corner. Please give the man a towel if he wishes. But, a suit? I like his clothes already ๐Ÿ˜‚.

        Question, do you think niagjn works?

        Itโ€™s Tuesday here dear G. I posted my poem finally.

        Sending love on the wind G xoxo

      2. “Blood red roses” I will take an entire field my dearest Rachel. Fragrant and wild!
        Yes, say Portugal, say Madeira. Which reminds me that once I wrote a poem entitled “Meet me tonight in Madeira”
        Greece, I’ll take Crete.
        “But, a suit? I like his clothes already” Yes, but they are wet. We don’t want him to get sick. Do we Rachael? Haha!

        Thank you for your beautiful words Rachel. You know how much they mean to me.

        “do you think niagjn works” It’s hard to tell. It was not tested in humans. I also take other supplements and on top I get an IV monthly which is essentially a cocktail of vitamin, minerals and antioxidants in large quantities. There is absolutely no science behind it and my doctor is pretty mad of me that I found another MD to do that for me. All those things together help me tremendously, but again: no science so long term they could very well hurt me.
        You asked me how do I keep up with all I do: here is your answer.

        I do not think that just trying niagen could hurt you.

        Have a beautiful rest of the week my darling Rachel.
        Sending you peachy Ecuadorian roses, said to be the most beautiful roses in the world.

      3. No; we would not want him to get sick. He is lucky to have you thinking of him, all I was going to give him was a towel ๐Ÿ˜‚. You would probably even give him a host of vitamins to ensure his wellbeing. In all seriousness, I hope they help you G (the infusion)…. I want you to take the very best care of you.

        Thank you for the Ecuadorian roses. How about some Balinese frangipanis for your hair? Xoxox

      4. “You would probably even give him a host of vitamins to ensure his wellbeing.” Ouch! Rachel I do not know if I must laugh or cry. You scored! You’re fabulous.
        Thank you for your wishes. I’m trying to do my best. The flowers were my pleasure.
        I don’t know what “Balinese frangipanis” are. Are they flowers? I guess I can google ๐Ÿ™‚
        Take care of you too, sweetheart,
        Love and hugs.

      5. Ouch??? ๐Ÿ˜‚ no… G, I am just being cheeky ๐Ÿ˜‰. Yes, frangipanis are flowers, and they smell and look beautiful. I think youโ€™d love them ๐ŸŒบ

      6. I do love them. I am looking at them on my computer screen. They do look gorgeous. Can you send some to me? ๐Ÿ˜Š
