.

with the wind stroking the sequoia
and that gypsy swallowing the sea?
When your ears are cushioned,
deaf to my rhythms-
washed and willing.
.
I want that, too.
.
.
Want the song of widows,
wending through these silent evenings,
their lime and meringue notes
staining my tongue, my throat,
my solar plexus.
Where did you discover
.
.
that Celtic knot of pleasure,
pulled beneath the foam,
an incipient undertow-
yearning for the depths?
.
I want that, too.

I love this; it has so many textures and images.  The sounds of it read out loud are very pleasing to the ear.

Amary,

It's good to see you and your poetry again.  This is lovely and sings all by itself.

I think I have just experienced the effects of the celtic knot of pleasure, dear Amaryllis. Your poem emanates a powerful energy, as if it was your soul touch.

Wonderful! Now please don't disappear as quickly as the last time. I want you here ... I want that too.

Love,
Margherita
