your name implies
      that you may have

i can imagine you
    in the sky
your feathers and their sheen

glossy like polished

are you a dancer
     amongst the stars?

unveiling your word songs
    has you rhythmically orbit mars

where we the less fair
         sex dwell

reliving your lines
      in fantasies where we wish
and tell

* written fo soup member charlene bird. a great poet and muse

    "Glassy like polished purity" that's my favorite line too... This is a beautiful poem. No way to keep it from flying gracefully off the page. Thanks for posting a great write. Tamra PS thank you for your kind comments on my poems--I'm a newbie to the soup.

    "Glassy like polished purity" That's my favourite line here. I love the thought of taking purity and thinking "well this is kind of grubby, let's clean it up!". Absolutely amazing creativity there and through the whole poem also. Thank you, also for your very kind comment about my Plath poem. I adore her work, to be honest actually, without her I doubt I'd even be writing :). Thank you again, Nathaniel

    Very dreamy. A fine male fantasy, most males can only say silently. Written for a Bird. What could be finer. Love this one. Love, daver

    Unique poem. The stanza: where we are the least visible,............releiving... Sounds better for the reader.

    This is a magical charming very well written poem Brian. Love the flow and the form makes it very effective.

    So compelling, Brian. Wish I could identify the source of this amazing inspiration, this "dancer amongst the stars." Very intriguing. Are we talking about an "Angel" perhaps?
