A Bittersweet Kiss of Prose

This is the bouncing poem The Silent dance of hearts A down to earth Celebration Pure written words of Art Round and round Life's goes around White Horses in Carousel Juggling Pins go spinning Up Static Smiles of clown Regrets The band drums up a Marching beat Banner says "We're Back in Town" Bouncing feet go skipping over Confetti on the ground Is it true he loves you The Rose petal blows Why do lovers come and go Losing their way in Winter’s glow Sometimes you'll win Sometimes you'll learn Often times you'll fall In pain you'll groan That’s how the story goes In this bittersweet Kiss of prose Better go bouncing on the Court of life With many highs and lows And Who knows... You may dunk a few baskets before Referee blows Time Up Curtains closed

This poem of yours Arturo is captivating from beginning to end, yes the highs and lows of Love, but who knows as you say in your last verse? You may dunk a few baskets before the referee blows....Maria

Dear Arturo, your creative, bittersweet write of love is whimsical in imagery and colored in vibrant shades of your poetic artistry, wit and subtle sarcasm - an enthralling write throughout but your second stanza is especially well expressed. Beautiful and captivating mon ami. May angels watch over you tonight and always.. ~ Susan

Impossible to mask from you...You saw it right through...Life is beautiful, don't get me wrong...but if you take it too seriously...it can take you down...so a little pepper might perk the appetite... Lovely to see you ...here without you would be a lonely place...Have a good night sleep my friend...

You write, I read. To love with no regret, but a few I have met. We, my wife and me, are members of that happy throng. 49 years we've sung true loves song. Your words inspired me to write. My mind reeling, your prose so appealing, every word a tiny piece of your heart revealing your passion for the written word. My prose expose me too, my way of life, my points of view. Take care Arturo, best wishes too... Mick

Ha, ha, ha, WW...I can guess you are a spiritual man... The spirits are the pros...I'm so simple I had to look up in the dictionary to find out what is a prose... Just a vessel I am...This art form is the way we breathe, walk, talk and think...I'm so conscious of it now that I observe every single thing
