The Second Waltz-Poem #Poetry #Poetry Book

at 8 am you boil flowery teas
the kitchen smells blueberries
and it smells cinnamon
the French silk stockings are the perfect gift
wonders of the magic lamp
last night
our passion lit
twelve wicks

you say good morning
and I say not now
your eyes are thirsty like a drying well
you say I love you
and I say please wait
your kisses fall under the bracelets from my wrist
my heart is beating in your chest
I have to go
you want to talk to me?
perhaps another day
you know, another day will bring another night
why don’t you write to me?
will I come back?

my love,
in front of all these icons that you brought for me in Crete
I swear I’ll die again with you
inside the beauty of the second waltz
where we discovered our innocence
one chord per bar

My book, Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings, can be ordered here.

Thank you,
Love
Gabriela

  1. Is the second waltz more dizzying than the first? Slowly winding up over morning tea, three to the bar, beats from two innocent hearts… Lovely poem Gabriela. Wonderful painting. Twirling video.

    1. Good morning Timothy. Thank you so much for your beautiful words. In my opinion the second one is better πŸ™‚
      Enjoy your Sunday and say hello to everyone.

  2. Gabriela !!!! This is so beautiful !!! Also, this has been one of my favorite songs……your poem and this music are ONE. So beautiful ❀️❀️

    1. Andrada! I am thrilled you liked it. It’s one of my favorite sings too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful comment.

  3. Good morning G,

    Your poetry is as gentle, sensual, and graceful as the beautiful waltz in the video.
    French silk stockings………my dear, we must not tease my heart. They do make a delightful gift. Deep breath.

    I have always felt what separates your poetry from the rest of us mortals, is your ability to effortlessly weave the five senses into your poetry. We live, breathe, taste your words.

    My inspiring friend, not sure when I will be back, until the next time querida.

    1. Good morning Drew,
      Thank you for your beautiful words. I am so grateful to you.
      “I have always felt what separates your poetry from the rest of us mortals, is your ability to effortlessly weave the five senses into your poetry. We live, breathe, taste your words.” This is really humbling. However, this is what you do in your magnificent poetry too.
      My dear friend, my heart is with you. You will come out victorious and I will be here to greet you. You can count on that.
      Sending you hugs and good wishes.
      Much luck!
      Always

  5. I’d die every day to be on Crete.
    And that’s one of my favorite waltzes, if I’m not counting Chopin. I listen to it all the time. It’s officially THE dance of hub’s sister and B. They dance to it all the time.

    1. B what a beautiful comment. Brothers Grimm! I did not even think about, but I am now… When I wrote this piece I thought of 12 as a fundamental symbol of time and magic: 12 hours, 12 months, 12 zodiacal sings, 12 apostles.. 12 has also a significance in tarot reading but I do not know what that is. I just know that is there.
      The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I really love that tale. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment.
      xoxoxoxo

    1. Victoria, thank you so much for everything. I just figured out that one of the stellar reviews on Amazon was done by you, and that you added my book on Good Reads. Sweetheart, I can’t thank you enough. I opened my Good Reads author profile and I will get to your books soon. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are fantastic.
      Sending you plenty of love and hugs.
