Queries



These thoughts of you, sounding,
in evening's approach
dance golden in
pealing bells' chime.
My silence is oft'
such sweet reverie, told,
'ere my musings
keep no trace of time.

Instead, these soft cinnamon
scentings and hues
have focused my
eyes and my minding,
and buried themselves
'neath the warmth of my skin.
Fragrant mem'ries,
all treasures, for finding.

I am born of your words,
though I've tried to resist
but to sentiment
cannot be hidden.
I have questioned with senses
alive in your eyes.
Still, to taste you
my lips are forbidden.

And what of these musings?
And what of the night?
And what, pray,
might dreams place before me?
All queries upon which
I cast, ever bright,
the need for your love
to restore me.



Dear LadyClaire

Claire~
Elegantly presented.
Perfection you've found in these thoughts.

I really enjoyed this description-
'these soft cinnamon
scentings and hues'

Lovely, Claire.

Ah, Claire -- how shamelessly clever of you to shed a sliver of light on the shadowed recesses of my secret heart!  

(Translation:  been there, done that!)

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Claire,
    More and more I am reminded by you of the very reason I am intrigued by the beauty of words.  Thank you dear poet for providing me such a beautiful picture...

And I thought this one "Queries" was going to be a poem about submitting to publishers

Claire, here you epitomize the reason I miss this place whenever I have to be away for a while. You are a cinnamon breath of fresh air which tenderly caresses my sould with each word I drink in. Bless you for your gift and bless you for sharing it.

Claire - I believe you have a purely magical way of writing - I have a question - do you ever write much freeverse, for you would be excellent at it

(No - I am not trying to get a convert everyone!)

This is an exceptional poem.

Chris...and thank "you" for the thoughtful comment. It thrills me that you were able to find beauty in my words.

Ruth...thank you!  The publishers will have to keep waiting for me, I suppose, although I did get a note today from "Poetic Voices" that they want one of my pieces for the April Issue.  

Denise...you seem to always find time to read the poems I post here, and I thank you, sincerely for that. Glad you liked this one.

Christopher...how could I not share my meager verses with the likes of fine poets such as you and everyone here? It is in the sharing of our verse that I discover so much pleasure and peace. Thank you, in earnest, for your poetic response, and for letting me know that you enjoyed this.

Severn...I don't write nearly as much freeverse as rhyme, but I have posted a few here. Thank you for reading, for offering your kind response and for your generous encouragement!

~ Claire

Meadowmuse, you write beautifully oh how I melted with your words.

these lines....

am born of your words,
though I've tried to resist
but to sentiment
cannot be hidden.
I have questioned with senses
alive in your eyes.
Still, to taste you
my lips are forbidden.


.... WOW!!
Excellent!!

 What comes from the heart goes to the heart.
Samuel Coleridge
