My Poem Dark Love up at Vita Brevis #poem #poetry #published

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?
a book cover reads: Dictionary of Superstitions
I see the girl who tears out…

  4. I remember this poem which reduced my husbandโ€™s excellent and considerable vocabulary to โ€œWowโ€ 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 ๐Ÿ’• and appreciation for your gift, Honeybun.

      Love and hugs.

    1. Oh, my, thank you so much my dearest friend. You know you are the star today. I am a simple afterthought. I owe you an email. I will write to you in the evening.
      Thank you again. Take care.

    1. Good morning Rene. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and your support.
      I hope everything is well and you are staying safe.

      1. My pleasure hon. I am ok. Make your day fabulous and inspiring.

      2. Thank you ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒธโค๏ธ

    1. Thank you so much for your wonderful words Punam. I am humbled by them. Wishing you a beautiful weekend sweetheart ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

    1. 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 ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒธ

      1. 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

      2. I am sorry to hear that Amy. Stay high where is light and love. The flowers are coming ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒธโค๏ธ

      3. 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 ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’•

      4. 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

      5. 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 donโ€™t want to be hurt for nothing. Be well Amy. You are loved. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน

  5. Please allow them to exit. Wonderful read, Gab.

    Btw, you know how I see this post in my Reader? Itโ€™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.)

    1. 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.

      1. What can I say? Under the circumstances I am happy you can see my posts.

      2. Hugs to you too Bo. Take care of yourself. It’s spring.
