Ethereal Bliss Your long pretty limbs and shapely trunk defy Rings, occult within, unseen by the naked eye. Rooted as saplings we've grown tall, you and I. Bending in strong winds in chaos we try To feel a calming peace from our sunset sky. Like my car's engine, the gasoline you require Revs your classy motor with love to aspire. A premium fillup adds sweet fuel to your desire, Then you make that purring sound I so admire. Like melting snow with the heat of your heart You melt me, then drown me in love's divine art, A destiny sanctified right from the start. As a shooting star blazes through outer space, I see it's soft shimmering light on your face. Rose petal soft lips share a sensuous kiss. Entranced by the sight of the moon rising high While leaves play a susurrate song in choir, A drum shares its tune as my heart plays its part. My shoes and her heels dance with such grace Assuaging my awareness of ethereal bliss. 1-2-18 MINUANETTA - Poetry Contest Sponsor: Gregory R. Barden chremamorphism theme Minuanetta is comprised on at least SIX stanzas, each stanza consistent with itself in rhyme, and decreasing in the number of lines with each stanza, with the final stanza created of one line of the rhyme of each stanza ... in short a rhyme scheme of (at least) AAAAA, BBBB, CCC, DD, E, ABCDE. It must have a least this many lines, (20), but you can add more, as long as you follow the same form, (and you may add a final, separate tag line, if you wish, but it must rhyme with the last line or repeat it in whole or in part) ...

Thank you very much Mike. This form was created by Gregory Barden and it was quite a challenge for me. You have a great night my friend. I have been real busy caring for my granddaughters as they are out of school for winter break right now. Christmas blessings, Connie xxoo

Greg, I am thrilled with my high placement in your contest with your form that was a challenge for me. You certainly got some fantastic entries I am enjoying reading. I can imagine how difficult this contest was to judge. I loved your choices. 11 days after my knee replacement and I am finally over the xtreme nausea and feeling less pain. I can walk with a walker and look forward to getting better every day. Thank you my friend. xxoo : )

This form was a challenge that took me the entire day to write Freddie and I am still not completely sure I have done it correctly. Thank you for the encouraging words my friend.: )

Spellbinding! Each stanza is spectacular in and of itself. This is a poem to be read more than once for its pull demands another in order to fully absorb all the elements. This is talent and I am in full appreciation of the beauty in this poem that I got to start my day with (going to SocSec). Great work, Connie. Love ... CayCay

I have been so busy. I'm getting ready to going to the hospital to have a knee replacement so I haven't even had much time to make any comments here at Soup because of all my doctor appointments. I was also having so much trouble with the pop-ups that I couldn't even read or make a comment for about three days. It is fixed now. I understand others have been having some problems too. Thank you for the encouraging words! : )

It was pretty difficult Andrea. A lot of second guessing myself and it took me all day to write. I hope you do one as you are so talented at writing in all forms. Thanks so much for the encouragement. hugs, Connie xxoo : )
