Chants of you

Image result for classic paintgs

The promise of high tide, the valour of blooming minds
in the blanket of stardust kiss
in the essence of my apron,
I carry thy words in my uptight hair bun
breezing the hopes, the yearning tongue in the air
Like I see a reflection in the consonance of my eyes
The paintings carved in my belly-button
like a deep slumber of a half-slept moon
establishing the prodigious words of skin,
the language of my pink tongue.
I see you as my dream-catcher sprinkling feathers on my soft breasts.
on repetition, you collide with my heart
An Orphic diamond kiss on my eyes.
The daydream is ephemeral for you shall rock
me in the cradle of lavender fields.
As my hair strands say phosphenes chants of you.

  1. Like I said you write romance and passion pieces better than I do. In both poems you wrote today, you created very strong β€œword pictures.” Images that stay in the reader’s mind long after the reading. In a poem, each word is selected like a jewel. Your selection and arrangement of the jewels today will leave all readers with a smile… and wanting more.

  2. I like the mystical and the nods to classical constructs. Flows well, like it accompanies some faint music, perhaps that from a lyre.Love work as always (and your romantic writing is just as good as your other genre pieces, wonderful and from the heart)

  3. A beautiful collection of images in your well-developed and effective writing style. Romantic in its consonance (great word choice here), adhering to your heart’s preference – those chants of a lover. Great writing, MVS.

      1. You are most welcome, MVS. I really enjoy reading you and will always be honest about how I see it and how it makes me feel. πŸ™‚

  4. This line gripped me:

    “I see you as my dream-catcher sprinkling feathers on my soft breasts.”

    Your writing is a true example of poetic essence and you always bring poetic to its natural sources of healthy healing and the world itself needs more writers like you my friend. Truly, I love what you’ve written here. πŸ™‚
