Whimsicality



Bereft.. tingles and sway are deserted heartstrings bestilled.. I yearn for the thrill of the dance and for ravishing trills of arpeggio moments.. widowed.. the capriccio has died; lifeless in swoon-less inertia I pine for zealous zephyrs to float my cloudless notes and kiss me aquiver - to shiver my craving broken chords in the lusty bluster of his imaginative airs and the lively magic of his lyrical lovemaking wistful without whispers blue without wind-songs chant-less.. I suffer in silence - awaiting my escapade in the windy caprices of his mind-blowing dalliances for neither of us can sing without the other. Susan Ashley September 14, 2018 ~ Third Place ~ Best Free Verse July 1 - October 1, 2018 John Hamilton

This is beautiful, Susan. Two hearts yearning for each other...longing to become one, reminding me of a split heart-shaped charm necklace desirous of a lasting union. Only then will music and song reach heights of passion. ~ Warm regards & Hugs my friend. // paul

Apreggio moments would be very dramatic,but so moving and emotive.. Great use of alliteration, particularly in the chorus of your poetic musical poem.. That is love, when two people can only sing as one..

Lol! It seems like the sane and insane roles might be moving in reverse.. that would be like the world spinning backwards.. haha.. but hey, it could be lots of fun, my dear crazy twinster. I truly think I would lose any semblance of sanity I have left if I didn't have your mad hatter wit and humor to make me shake my head and laugh out loud.. :)) Thank you for your 3.0 status bestowed on my poem, I'm catching up to your level, my insanely talented poet twin :)) And ohh! Dinner in the West wing tonight!! Great, so long as 'unicorn' isn't on the menu.. lol! I would love to see them at dinner so long as they come as guests and not as the meal.. haha! I'll let our twisty triplet know as well ok :)) Love and hugs my wonderfully zany twinster.. Your, unicorn loving and somewhat sane, twin sis :)

Merging souls satisfying their whims while breathing the breeze of music and dancing under the beats of "the wind chimes".. When "bereft" and "windowed" the soul loses voice, brightness and wanes in pain.. a genuine rendition of one of the soul's states of lifelessness.. A brilliant work of art! A wonder to the eye! Definitely a FAV. My warmest regards dear Susan.. Love and hugs. Stay blessed always.
