Distant Thoughts

Privacy that burns 
A pyre of knowledge self-honed
The russet leaves have arrived 
She is awakened  
Leaves flutter by her bare feet 
Making their presence pre-known 

A stake in her heart 
Lodged deeply beneath the ribs 
As Longfellow musings pry  
Wounds once oozed agape 
No longer bleed the heart dry  
Private tutor calms, imbibes 

A delicate wrist 
Proffers on night’s evening husk  
Every word’s a waft of musk 
As she goes tardy 
In the shadows of his words
Lea opens the trap-door  

Lost in distant thoughts 
The learned one un-knots xxx

    A well thought out piece of poetry. Leaves are russet, the heart longs, words are sometimes lost in thoughts but love prevails. Well done.

    "As she goes tardy in the shadows of his words..." This reads like a great dream Mystic. Reminds me of an Oracle's vision. I like it, it means many things. J.A.B.

    Blimey what an imagination. Is that what you think when in solitude? A great piece of poetry and the type SEDOKA intrigues me I have to study it. Great piece of work for a great contest only Isaiah Zerbst can organise. Yes, you were right about the tattoo it is a portrait of my beloved favourite singer. The one and only EDITH PIAF!

    This has very unusual imagery, Vie. I love that last part, as she goes tardy in the shadow of words and opens a trap door. SO COOL!!
