The splendid poetry of Ty Gardner #guest post #MasticadoresUSA update

Dear Readers,

It is with the outmost pleasure that I introduce you to a fabulous American poet: Ty Gardner. I discovered Ty on Twitter about a month ago. His talent captivated me. His poetry is life and it’s beauty. His poetry is all of us.

The rambling roads are calling home,
and the paper trails of prose-poemed passages 
we vowed to roam echo visions of misted-morning veils 
o’er mountain…

Please continue reading Ty’s poem Siren Songs of Rambling Roads at MasticadoresUSA.

Visit Ty’s Amazon site here. Pick one of his books. Read it and you will know what I am taking about. Visit him on Twitter.

Butterflies always die – poetic prose by Gabriela Marie Milton #poetry #poetic prose

HAJI21-cz; Pixabay

In times of fortune and misfortune I am always at the mercy of silence. Perhaps because I was born on an island where seldom does anything happen.

Yesterday the water and the light invaded my tongue’s buds, and I was forced to look at myself upside down. I could see the splendor of a naked butterfly ready to mate. Do you know for how long do two butterflies stay together? Sixteen hours. The exact time we spent together in the silence of the island.

Suspended in the between times neither of us moved. No cosmic sacrifice happened. No driving force was brought to life. No blood interfered between …. please continue reading at MasticadoresUSA.

I am the one – poem by Gabriela Marie Milton / MasticadoresUSA update

I am the one

[poem included in my poetry collection

Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings]

I am the voice of your past loves
resounding in your wildest fantasies
dressed in roses at the altar of your dreams
I am the one you’ve never had
my soul flows from the tears of the Nile
from the hands of children who still beg
through ruins, darkness, and deep pain
through wars which they will never understand
I am the last who will be saved
for I have sinned under the shadow of His cross
when Spanish fountains cry in the sunset
I am the Desdemona who you’ve never met
today Granada’s just the place
in which García Lorca once was killed
I am the feather of a gold macaw bird
and in the city where bells toll
I am the one whose cries you’ve never heard.

Summer Fantasy poem by Gabriela Marie Milton/ MasticadoresUSA Update

Summer Fantasy


poem included in my book Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings (Vita Brevis Press, April 2020) available on Amazon here

my eyes are water wells
mirroring your body
into a time which shrinks
my lips shine on stained glass
windows to the sea
a virgin violin
faints into your lap
sick with jealousy
the summer hangs in trees
seduction
fantasy

turn around – poem by Gabriela Marie Milton #poetry #poetry collection

 Anna Ismagilova; Shutterstock

I am an external representation
I ask questions about the internality of things
the sweetness of berries on my tongue 
the anarchy of flesh during torrid nights
blindfolded by you
I cry
the rustle of fresh ivy
the unspoken
unbound in my blood
mi amor
turn around

in love with you – poem by Gabriela Marie Milton #poetry #poetry collection

The sky rains on my spring the sweet scents of your autumn.

A luxurious paralysis flows through my veins.

My lips nestle in the plenitude of your dreams with their multiple interpretations.

I am so in love with you that I will accept hell provided you are part of it.
