My poem Dark Love is now up at Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine.
green, you smell with your tongue
your thoughts pollinate mine
your fingers endanger the sailors
a water which opens its lips and drinks them
ah, hour of man
when did you become the hour of horrors?

I see the girl who tears out…

No words…just wow! Inspiring!
My most sincere thanks. I am humbled by your comment.
I remember this poem which reduced my husband’s excellent and considerable vocabulary to “Wow” when I read it out loud to him after reading it several times myself. I enjoy your poems myself first, I am a bit selfish that way.
It takes us through such an amazing adventure with so many exquisite visuals that one,is,left speechless.
The introduction of the book she sees brings a dark and mysterious world to this piece. I loved that gorgeous turn.
The ending is superbly done. Just an incredible piece beautiful Button. Congratulations on the publication as well dear friend. With much love 💕 and appreciation for your gift, Honeybun.

My pleasure 🙂 ❣️ 🙂
I can see why you have reason to celebrate, Gabriela. This is brilliant making the reader hold the breath as the words flow one into another. Congratulations! xo
Oh, Amy, thank you so much for your beautiful words. I am humbled by your praise. You made my afternoon. I am running to find fresh flowers for you. I will send them as soon as I can. Much love 🤗💕🌹🌸
I can just about smell those flowers, thank you. Really, thank you. I’ve had a tough couple of weeks. Aiming high and getting there ….. much love to you! xo
I am sorry to hear that Amy. Stay high where is light and love. The flowers are coming 🤗🌹💕🌸❤️
Just so many really nasty people flaring up all over the place and I seem to stumble upon them. Makes me want to stay at home. xo
Amy, you are love. I know that. You can shine. Please do not leave anyone to steal your happiness. Nobody has the right to do that 💕🌹💕
You’re right nobody has the right to steal my happiness. I’ve been getting some very hard unexpected cruel verbal punches from those I deemed friends. No longer are they on my friends list. Their energy has changed and not for the better. I’m getting brighter and just am so so sensitive right now. I’m being very careful who crosses paths with me right now. (((HUGS))) xo
I am glad you decided to remove negative people from your friends list. It could be hard but most of us go through this. As least those of us who don’t want to be hurt for nothing. Be well Amy. You are loved. 💕🌹💕🌹
Thank you 🌹

This is a really good poem!
Thank you. I really appreciate your comment.
Please allow them to exit. Wonderful read, Gab.
Btw, you know how I see this post in my Reader? It’s pale, and weird looking. Have you been fiddling with you site again? (sorry, I meant to post it here; didn’t notice I was on BV’s site.)
Thank you so much Bo. I am glad you think so.
No, VP does. I see a lot of pale posts in my reader but when I click on them I can see them well.
Yeah? Another WP’s dirty trick.
What can I say? Under the circumstances I am happy you can see my posts.
That’s how I see it too. Hugs.
Hugs to you too Bo. Take care of yourself. It’s spring.
Yay for that.
