Breeze

Art by Loui Jover

The wind

is sailing clouds

singing in wires

rippling ponds

sounding chimes

making trees dance.

 

I imagine it

playing in your hair

tugging at your clothes

lifting your skirt

and caressing your thighs

Tie me

Loui-Jover

She says

‘Tie me with silk

tie me with leather

tie me with chains

tie me with rope.

Yet nothing

will bind me

more securely

than when you tie me

with words’

There is a woman

Art by Vladimir Volegov

There is a woman.

She walks this earth.

I have not met her, although I once came close. I have barely seen her, though glimpses have thrilled me. I have never spoken to her, although I swear I can hear her sweet accent in my head. And in my dreams.

I do not know her perfume but her scent thrills me. I have not touched her but can almost feel her skin beneath my finger tips. I have not looked into her eyes, but feel light-headed at the thought.

I have not owned her, but the hunger to do so consumes me.

There is a woman.

She walks this earth.

This is by no means new. At least two years old. But I like it very much.

Musical

Lana

I love music

It has been a constant joy throughout my life.

And my tastes are eclectic

Dirty, raunchy rock.

Desperate, yearning, aching blues.

Bold and brassy soul.

Eloquent, erudite jazz,

Opulent, rich, passionate opera.

Clever, cool classical.

Brave new country

Hypnotic trance,

Inspired indie,

Vibrant african,

Gorgeous arabic,

Magical South American,

Fiery, Spanish flamenco,

Tortured French torch,

Powerful Portuguese Fado,

Earthy English Folk,

I love all kinds of music

 

Most of all.

I love music that reminds me of you.

You make them special

Art by Fabian Perez

I imagine you reading

the dull

and tedious lines

I have written.

Your perfect mouth

forming the words

making them special

beautiful and pure

as they touch you.

Florian’s

Art by Fabian Perez

I imagine us.

Caffe Florian

Piazza San Marco

sipping cocktails

while music is played.

You

in a sheath of a dress

which I

later remove.

If I was a poet

Art by Loui Jover

If I was a poet

I would craft such lines for you.

I would weigh every word carefully. Examine it. Measure it. Carefully determine its suitability. Its intention. Its light and shade. Its truth.

I would test it carefully in its relationship with other words. I would study their harmony, their balance, their humour, their wisdom, their meaning.

I would lay each sentence tenderly with the rest. Matching. Contrasting. Comparing. Trying them in my mind, beneath my fingers, in my mouth. On my tongue.

I would hold them up to you. Lay them over you. Place them side by side with you. Meticulously ensuring they capture your beauty, your elegance, your warmth, your intelligence, your grace.  Making sure they fit you perfectly. Striving to make them do you justice.

If I was a poet.

And if you belonged to me.
