Half Turn of a Screw

Once you’ve see the red and gold
Of sunset painted sky
Once the aureates unfold
Before the lustful eye
Never will a pinkish hue
Arouse the wonderment in you

Once you’ve lain in pleasure’s field
In wisps of fragrant scent
And breathed bouquets of life’s own yeild
The spice of soul’s content
Never will a rose’s bloom
Seem near as sweet as love’s perfume

Once you’ve grasped in your pursuit
A dream of fond desire
Once your toil has reaped the fruit
And set your soul on fire
The flame in you will never burn
To give a screw just half a turn

Once a dream is part of you
Just half a dream will never do

You reached in and made me think deep Liz.
Matter of fact my mind is still pondering the truth you've laid out here.

Provokes much thought in such a tender image filled poem. I could never tire of reading what you write.

Well, here I am, reading - of course, I have to read and this, this is the most stunning work I've seen and read in awhile.  The flow is exquisite, it carried me.  To read something like when one is feeling so screwed up is a blessing!!!!!!!!

Nicely done here......I give it 2 thumbs up and a WOW!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Excellent in both message and poem Elizabeth!
This is so true and perfectly said...  
As always, I enjoy reading your work.
