My new piece “You in another life” up at Free Verse Revolution #poem #poetry #free verse

 

I fast for nine mornings. On the tenth I walk barefoot toward the water.

The sea nurses the shore like mothers nurse their new babies.

The smell of beach roses and that of salt and sand.

The breeze plays on my neck and undoes the ribbons of my dress.

A wave washes on my body looking for forever; veins filled with my blood which has no expiration date.

I love for nine nights. On the tenth….

    1. My dearest Ely, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and your support. I am going through a tough time and your words bring so much beauty in my life.
      Sending love

  2. This piece is brimming me with pulchritude and the essence of nature combined with wondrous imagery makes this poetry such a charming read. Phenomenal!

    Enigma ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Dear friend,
    I’m stunned. There’s this whole new perspective of love here.
    You’ve got me staring at these lines. They are shocking G.
    “He who knows me knows the darkness.”
    You’ve played all your cards and friend, you’re straight to the win.
    Beautifully melancholy, and somewhere deep down in the veins, the pain of longing love.
    Wow!

    1. Hello, my dear friend. You are unbelievable Shanyu. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the praise.
      “Youโ€™ve played all your cards and friend, youโ€™re straight to the win” What a humbling thing to say. But wait. I still have some cards to play and I did not win yet. I hope I will ๐Ÿ™‚
      “somewhere deep down in the veins, the pain of longing love.” If you say so, so it is.
      Wishing you a splendid day Shanyu and sending love and hugs.
      Yours
      G

      1. Hola amigo.
        You are so very welcome.
        You surely do have a lot of cards to play, and you will win too. Your words are something that’ll never let you down.
        It was what I thought the poem had somewhere down below. It could of course mean so much more. But the idea of words meaning so many different things to different people is what keeps me going.
        Wishing a wonderful, golden day my friend. Let the sun shine the brightest upon you.
        Always,
        S.

      2. Shanyu,
        “It was what I thought the poem had somewhere down below” I am afraid you misinterpreted my comment. I was joking. I should have said so. Will you forgive me I did not?
        My dearest friend, I want you to know that I will always value and respect your opinions. “the idea of words meaning so many different things to different people is what keeps me going.” This is important and it’s so sweet of you to say it.

        Thank you for the gold that you put in my day. It transformed everything into poetry.
        May you be loved my friend.
        Sending you plenty of hugs.
        Yours
        Gabriela

  4. Honey, your writing is so breathtaking. You capture my heart and my imagination, your words so achingly beautiful I tremble beneath them and wish to be within them.

    I miss my beautiful friend. I need to send a thousand apologies, I donโ€™t know what is wrong with me to be so absent. I am sorry my darling friend. But that is another matter. The matter at hand here is your incredible writing. Love you, gorgeous Gabriela xxxxxx

    1. My fabulous Rachel.. here you are! I am so happy to hear from you, hon.
      “I need to send a thousand apologies, I donโ€™t know what is wrong with me to be so absent” Rachel, you do not need to apologize. You are loved. I am thinking about you every day. Please take care of yourself. To a certain level you must know what’s going on with you. I feel the same and I think I know why. I have plenty of emails from people who care about me left unanswered. I have a difficult time mobilizing myself to do the things I must do. I understand you sweetheart. Time will come when things will get better. I miss you and I miss your beautiful poetry. But I can wait Rachel. I can wait for a long time if this is what it takes.
      Just promise me you will take care of you.
      It’s spring for you. It’s autumn for me. Enjoy your spring Rachel.
      Sending you boats loaded with love.
      xoxoxo

      1. Awww G. I canโ€™t help but shed a tear reading this. I am so grateful for your love and understanding. I think of you every day too. I worry about you as well. I got the boats and they filled my heart with joy. I filled them with blossoms and daffodils and more love and am sending them back your way xoxoxo

      2. “blossoms and daffodils and more love and am sending them back your way” Thank you from the bottom of my heart sweetheart. I just got them. They are beautiful. Sending you more love and please take care of yourself.
        xoxoxo…

    1. Cindy, thank you so much for your beautiful comment. You are right: ” we need to meet.” That will be wonderful…. Do you drink coffee?

      1. I generally do not drink coffee. However, I will have one when we meet ๐Ÿ™‚ I am embarrassed to say but I drink Coke. I am not perfect Cindy ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Well, I make up for my coffee with your coke minus the sugar.. lol. 9 teaspoons of sugar in each on.. I’m not perfect either, trust me. ๐Ÿคฃโค๏ธ

      3. Don’t worry about the sugar. I drink Coke Zero ๐Ÿ™‚
        Enjoy the rest of your day Cindy.
        Love
        Gabriela

        Have a great day
        xoxox

      5. Sounds like a plan! Thanks Gabriella!!! โค๏ธ C

      6. Cindy, I am glad you had a great day. Looking forward to reading it on Friday.
        You have cats! How wonderful. I have a cat too ๐Ÿ™‚
        Sending love
        xoxoxo

      7. Thanks. Hope you did as well. Well, I haven’t decided on it yet but in debate.. lol. I do: Ollie and Star and 2 dogs.. Awwww what’s your cat’s name? โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ C

      8. Thank you! I am patiently waiting for your decision. “Ollie and Star and 2 dogs” Beautiful!
        My cat’s name is Maya. I had three: Leila, Monsieur Bonbon, and Maya. Leila and Monsieur Bonbon passed away. Now I have only Maya.

      9. Thanks.. it makes me laugh but not sure everyone would get it.. aww Maya is a cute name. I love your other names of your cats too. It’s so hard when they pass. I’ve lost so many animals but I love them so much and cry for days and then they take a place in my heart and I’m able to move on.. so much love so much life and I think when you give your heart and soul, there are no regrets. xo

  5. What can I say that I haven’t already said about your body of work? This is no exception. You continue to amaze and inspire me with your words, your kindness, and your love, my dearest G!

    1. Thank you so much Brad. You are sweet.
      “What can I say that I havenโ€™t already said?” Let’s stop here. Now tell me how the fall is there, why love is still alive, and why autumn colors the leaves so beautiful?
      Have a wonderful day Brad. Waiting for your reply.
      Yours
      G.

      1. Crisp mornings wind their way into sun-filled afternoons, with the scent of woodfires and lilac on the air. Autumn paints the trees in rainbowed hues, just to remind you that love is till alive. For love is like energy. It can never die or fall into non-existence. It can only change, passing from state to state, and person to person. It is a small as an atom and as large as the universe. And it always remains! Love to you, poetess! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

      2. Fabulous words from a fabulous poet. Brad, thank you so much.
        “For love is like energy. It can never die or fall into non-existence. It can only change, passing from state to state, and person to person.” You really touched my soul with this. I actually wrote in one of my books: love passes from person to person.. WOW. Thank you again Brad.
        Have a beautiful evening. May love be with you.
        Yours
        G.

    1. Aw… thank you so much. You made me blush โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

      1. Yassy, my dearest, thank you so much but I don’t want to win prizes. I want to win hearts.
        Love you my Queen of Poetry. Thank you for supporting me.
        xoxo

      1. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

      1. That is true. However when I start going down I go deep. I scare everyone around me. What can I do?
        Take care sweetheart ๐Ÿ’
