Confessions In Her Confidence -

I know where she prays within the necessity of nightfall
inside the Poets' Pantheon, an isolated Idol
they all came, close as envy can to care,
flowers and jewels from all the conquered territories
laid quietly at her toes,
Marco Polo would recognize her as exotic medicine
travel for centuries to have a single dose,
break your heart as a spoil of war that words could justify,
Leonardo slave to invent new paints for her grin of grace,
Janis Joplin shake out lyrics of how nobody could deny her dreams
without consequence of catastrophe,
demolish you with an ever deepening desire,

she needed a man that could hold the heights of her heaven,
a man capable not of sacrafice for a taste of her starlight
but one offering partnership in the placement of orgasm's origin
giving forbidden sensation to her solar system,
so accustom to receiving love from the enamoured
amour as a dialect was nearly extinct in her essence,
a Goddess so tired of inspiring, so exhausted, almost bled out,
an Olympiean she wanted, an equal for Eternity,
soon worship would do no more for her,
she needed a man willing to receive her sacrafice,
able to take on her needs,
oh the beauties she may lay in his arms -

J.A.B.  This poem has been made for Poet Destroyer's 
100 % Nature Contest - 2013

    You have a gift my friend, thanks for sharing it with us. There are so many layers to this piece, literal, historic and raw with emotions. I felt drawn to the centre while being transported to a higher consciences.

    My gift is a translation of beautiful and Divine Inspiration Richard, I live for, grateful for it, and thankful that is well received by very talented and good natured people. Your experience with this composition is how I feel while harnessing my creative visions my friend. I am so exhuberant to have included some of my Heros in this poem, so glad I could honor the Great Janis Joplin in particular. J.A.B.

    Yes Charmaine, I believe we have an obligation to give Mother Nature something worth admiring, something speacial to give back, and much of this begins with being open to receiving her inspiration - thanks so much - J.A.B. %

    Thanks so much Carrie - It appears as though we human creatures have the highest capacity for witnessing & collaborating with Mother Nature - hence, its like we are the culmination of Nature's fantasy, even though we are just aone of many mysterious parts of this Divine design - so I fiured that I'd celebrate PD.'s theme by highlighting the relationship between the spirit of nature and it's vigorous offspring -

    Dear Justin, this poem is a true delight. I love the true nature of my being. After I read this poem, I felt like raising MY white flags to the surrender of a life time. In my life I am overwhelmed with the sacrifice of men ( my man any man.) Your words and heart are of beauty. life has shown me the gems i can enjoy or destroy. Anyways, I offer the taste of my starlight. I want to thank you very much for considering my 100 % nature contest..Congratulations in showing off Natures true beauty and glow, THE WAY YOU SEE IT, and offer it....always~ PD

    You are a marvel my Sphinx, and personify the great forces of creative Nature and it's Spirit - Nature, perhaps Providence, is predatory as well as parental, devotional and demanding - I honor your wisdom - Thank You Linda - J.A.B. %

    Very interesting, captivating, unique work, Justin. I see Linda has enjoyed very much. Best of luck in her contest. Justin for the win I am sure! One of my favorite lines that stuck with me-- "giving forbidden sensation to her solar system" ..truly intriguing, these lines, put in a very stylish and metaphorical way. Always, Laura
