Below is the poem of the day entitled WAVE INTO YOU - A Collaborative Write with JW which was written by poet Kim Patrice Nunez.


WAVE INTO YOU - A Collaborative Write with JW

I was the one with the color-blue eyes, 
you were the wind on the sea. 
Of all the oceans tossed by your kiss 
why did it have to be me? 

                                                Pardon this wind for causing the wave. 
                                                One as free-spirited as I 
                                                was myself surprised, your gravity called, 
                                                your lips I could not deny. 

A soaring breeze calms not a sea 
and I would be remiss, 
to think my journey to your heart 
began with but a kiss. 

                                                Why would you wonder, oh King of the deep 
                                                did you not feel the spark, the magic? 
                                                You wound my heart, with thoughts that start 
                                                to doubt my intent, it’s tragic. 

Indeed I felt it, burning deep, 
your spark inflamed desire. 
Enraptured now, I long for more, 
my heart a raging fire. 

                                                 Arise, my King, from current doubt 
                                                 and begin to breathe anew. 
                                                 Haven't I hovered long enough 
                                                 for you to get a clue? 

Bend, oh Queen, yield your will 
and we will rise above, 
the ebb and tide of mortal bane 
swept away in love. 

                                                  Into your ocean I'll sail my vessel 
                                                  on a course set sound as stone. 
                                                  Prepare yourself oh majesty 
                                                  for I will share your throne.

    G'day Kim... in my own personal view, this poem is true poetry. The scallywag of nonsense and yourself Kim have done a wonderful job here. Thank you both - Lindsay

    Nunez Avatar Kim Patrice Nunez Date: 4/17/2015 6:35:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    LOL! Scallywag? I guess that's your endearment for John? Does he know that? Hahaha...Thank you for reading and leaving a comment, though. Glad you liked it Lindsay. Hugs! :) Kim

    This verse is so unique! I love the Rhyme pattern and the format in it. Absolutely beautiful. Your voices in it were so cool also! I love love love it! <3 Tash

    Nunez Avatar Kim Patrice Nunez Date: 4/17/2015 5:58:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thank you, Tasha. The rhyme pattern is kind of light, right? I just adopted John's rhyme on his first stanza...and we took it from there. It was fun doing the collab. I'm glad you liked it! HUgs and smiles! :) Kim

    Kim this is beautifully romantic, you both did impressive writing for this poem, well done 7, and thanks for visiting my poem, insanity, I seldom write funny but thought I would give the contest a whirl

    Nunez Avatar Kim Patrice Nunez Date: 4/16/2015 11:59:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thank you BW, it was John's idea, but he allowed me to post first. He also posted it on his page. I saw his very good tributick on you. He's very talented, it was apparent to me the first time I saw his work with that Dragon Song...lol! HUgs! :) Kim
  1. Date: 4/16/2015 10:49:00 AM

    I see that you have added a couple of more gems to your collection. “ WAVE INTO YOU - A Collaborative Write with JW ” a very interesting piece, reminds me of the Polish Princess ( I am sure you have read about her in my stuff ) and her art collaboration ( three artist painting on the same canvas ) .

    Nunez Avatar Kim Patrice Nunez Date: 4/16/2015 12:09:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thank you sire. A fellow limerick writer, John, was kind enough and it was fun process, lots of witticisms thrown around. I think poets now are more fortunate that with the advent of technology, we are able to do things not available to earlier poets. Thank you for reading and leaving a comment. Appreciate it much. Hugs! :) Kim
