I AM AN 8



A gypsy dance enthralls the stars into a twirl of rustling hems as women tap bare feet, guitars lift twiddling notes of lore’s anthems along a woodland’s lively fest, where beaded hair glides in thrilled zest to charm night’s hours...to romp away till wagon drifts when morning strays. My destiny number is 7, though I chose my path number 8--- jan 8 rispetto form in 8 lines ------------ Andrea Dietrich's Tell Me Your Number Contest

Tiger in the Sea

I thought I had hooked the world’s largest grouper
After struggling for hours, I was still reeling
Refused help from a friend; I was a trooper
Somehow I found its resistance appealing
Hot sun on the Gulf had me in a stupor
And in my hands I started to lose feeling

It finally came into view just before dark
Was shocked to find a fifteen-foot tiger shark

He’d just been toying with me all afternoon
And he was more than half the size of my boat
I felt like a comic in a weird lampoon  
My heart seemed to be rising up in my throat
Captain Ahab might have viewed this as a boon
But far too much weight did this tiger shark tote

He bolted, took off, stripped the line from my reel
And I had to cast elsewhere for my next meal

Poe and I

Poe's darkness calls to such as I, an ember,
a velvet covered wing chair's grasp on dark nights.
I seek the maudlin moan of his December
to nurse an aging form and love's lost delights.
As Poe has said, "distinctly I remember..."
his sweetest kiss and the wound he left in flight.
So, by the hearth sit such as I in shadow,  
Raven in hand by the firelight's ruddy glow.

Lucilla Smiled

Although her smile I could not see, Lucilla smiled through poetry. This lovely lady I met here who graced us with her sunny ways until her very final days became for me somebody dear. Although her smile I could not see, Lucilla smiled through poetry. Her words of wisdom now can flow in heaven, where all angels go. This lovely lady I met here became for me somebody dear. Although her smile I could not see, Lucilla smiled through poetry! RIP Lucilla Carrillo - Written in her memory Oct 2014 For the Sonnetina Rispetto Contest of Dr. Ram Mehta

Hostage

The drum of raindrop's steady fall,
incessant echoes off the walls
can never hide the heartbeat's din
nor dark of bleak and lonely rooms
that balance on the edge of doom,
or when the flow of tears begin,
the drum of raindrop's steady fall,
incessant echoes off the walls;
sweet memories are almost gone
with hopes for freedom that I long
can never hide the heartbeat's din
or when the flow of tears begin,
the drum of raindrops steady fall,
incessant echoes off the walls.

Crystalline Wings

The trodden pathway of brown pebble stones and grass Leads to a hidden meadow below a mountain pass Where soft gentle winds flow endless from blue skies Whispering secrets to agile dragonflies That frolic in sunshine amongst daffodils Wings with touches of gold dip low just for thrills As bumble bees hum; and a bird playfully sings … Watching sun rays reflect on crystalline wings ~*~

JULIET SPEAKS




Again , she pines on barren stars and clasps the handrail of despair, maiden of night, gazing afar Juliet speaks to feebled air . Oh, hours trickle on beats unkind, that mock a future undefined unmoved, her pulse begins to roam of fevered thoughts on walls, alone. With ebon clouds that float midway she ponders, restless as a breeze, compelled to seek this dream-like play that waits for lovers' melodies. Yet tresses blow without relief, for love denied like winter thief as silence drapes the skyline’s veil on empty porch howling farewell.

BOLD GYPSY HUMBLED



On full moon night, wild tresses float like flowers
as stars ignite her arms to dance, then to pull
her gypsy robe, arise  tambourine hours ;
the wake of  feet romancing tunes from sky’s drool.

Bold magic only her distinct kismet whips
Yet she, humbled by thief lover’s captured kiss,
unveils the inner tramp panting without reign.
By dawn, a Jezebel turns into maid chained!

Unique Lady

She is gracious,skillful and filled with true love,
Dense weight on her shoulder to help those in need,
 Utopian woman  selected  from above,
Malice absent, but poetry her  daily feed,
Doesn`t compromise as regards perfection,
She`s voted as the VOICE without election,
Pride and oppression she detests to the core,
Her traits and values many damsels adore.

Wild Passion

She’s wild, a passionate heart of love inspired Playing a violin, masterful and free So fast and fierce, her every lust is desired Violin sparks aflame burning intensely She screams with pleasure of the fire’s indulgence Peak of passion has reached beyond innocence Her mouth open with flames entering inside She loves her tremendous trek, her awesome ride Russell Sivey Happy Valentines Day
