And Then Are Times -

When love comes pounding on a drum, it comes on fast and hard and strong until two hearts in synch beat passion’s song. Sometimes love comes clanging down the tracks. It clashes or it clamors to be heard, so at its crossing, meaning is obscured. Other times, love lurks or it attacks. Unrequited, love can pierce or burn until its ventricle turns into black. And then are times love gently climbs or eases sure-footed to one’s door or sweetly seeps and saturates the soul. It’s strong and yet it’s soft. It doesn’t sting or snip. It listens and reverberates the whispers of the heart. July 29 for the Vibrant Verse Poetry Contest of Charlotte Puddifoot

    If I thought I really was a poet and then I read you, I would only ever write again for me and my friends. I once Directed a play about Byron and Shelly. I read both of them and their contemporaries. Those were the days. They wrote epics. When I read Coleridge...In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree...I thought I had died and gone to heaven. You are an amazing writer amazing writer.

    My God!!!! This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read. I am speechless. Andrea as genourous as you are the truth is when it comes to poetry you are the whole of Negril Beach and I am a single grain. I am going to do something a little unusual now, I am going to fav this and don't you dare ever fav another one of mine. With all my love, Your Friend Always,

    The eyes and mind are called to serve the heart. If you keep them open, love will come. That's what I get from your poem. If you keep them closed, love dies. And the eyes grow dim and the heart turns to stone. We are born innocent. Adia. Couldn't help the reference. :)
