when you speak to me
when you speak through me

behind the dome of my forehead

poetry and wounded dew

the fragrance of my décolleté

eternally looking
only for you

    1. Thank you so much, Brad. I am really happy for those words “Enchanting and delicate”.
      Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

  1. “Poetry and wounded
    dew” so beautiful Gabriela. What a vivid poem about love. Your interview was fascinating and I also enjoyed your interview for Author of the Month. You are a humble poet and I love what you say about family. The interviews give us a glimpse of this poet we love so much. Have a blessed day beautiful Button. Love you 😘😘 Joni

    1. Oh, I am thrilled you liked the poem Joni. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Also thank you for reading the interviews. You are a gem.
      You have a blessed day honeybun. I love you too.

      1. They were fascinating. My honey and I read them. I loved what you said about last Easter and wondered if you got your talent and love for writing from your mother because of the beautiful words on the back of the picture. That touched my heart so much. You are precious to me. Love always Joni

      2. Oh, thank you so much dear. It was a very emotional moment. I still don’t understand how I did not see those words in the back of her picture before that. Tears came out of my eyes and I could not stop them for a while. I tried because everyone was looking at me but I could not stop them. I will never forget that moment.
        Thank you so much, Joni.

      3. I hope I didn’t hurt you Button. I think it was a beautiful gift you received when you needed it most. My mother was also a writer and I didn’t know it until she was gone and I found a beautiful book she was in the process of writing in a trunk at the end of her bed. Maybe they know each other in heaven. I won’t mention it again. I am sorry again if I made you sad. xoxoxo

      4. oh, no, you did not make me sad, Joni. I can talk about her now. I couldn’t for 2 years, but I am at peace now.

        “My mother was also a writer and I didn’t know it until she was gone and I found a beautiful book she was in the process of writing in a trunk at the end of her bed. ” Wow. That must have been a very emotional moment. God bless you Joni. Perhaps we are fated to find some truths only when we are ready to find them.
        “Maybe they know each other in heaven.” What a wonderful thought. Thank you honey.

      1. As one of your readers, I must say that I don’t know that weakness you think we know 😁. And now you’ve also made me add Lawrence Durrell to my “to read” list.
        Love your poetic advice at the end. The “come to me so you can burn” bit

      2. Thank you so much Jude. You are too kind. I am glad you added Lawrence Durrell to your reading list. When you finally get around to read him let me know what you think.
        Best wishes

    “poetry and wounded dew

    So soft and delicate, a bit of pain, a lot of beauty. I am sitting here contemplating the colour green too. I like it how there are multiple interpretations possible with that.
