Your Fickle Climate

Your aura leads me to rapt confusion,
it snap drags me with a cyclone’s aloof.
   Your spring perfume cloaks your fall-colored spoof
   and your bright rainbow conceals delusion -
              yet, my eager seeks your flair’s intrusion.

Need-hoping for a clue, I study you.
  Searching for keys to your fickle climate,
  I attempt charting your depths of private.
     Your sky-air rises hints of midnight blue
             to dance breezy-twirls on my point of view.

Intoxication steeps your vibrations.
  Flirt, tease-notes disguise your spirit’s tone,
  still my need seeks burns in your cool zone.
    Your essence boasts self-confident foundations
           while my patina pales from frustrations.

Congratulations CayCay! Do you know, I’ll admit, first time round when I read this, I didn’t “get” it at all. This time when I read it, the meaning shines through. I wonder how much glorious stuff passes me by just because I’m normally exhausted by the time I get time to read poetry! Anyway. Powerful stuff and beautifully conveyed :-)

CayCay, this is beautiful, and it expresses to me the inability to get into another person's head and try to figure them out.

I am feeling so overwhelmed, Caycay. I still have not even done my professional development during my vacation time, just three more days and it's all over!!!

I Have read what you replied to me and feel silly that I did not see more easily that it was about a person. AS I read it again, I could really see it that time!

That is very powerful and honest. I like your take on the theme. But you have just proved with your poem that your patina is not fading. Many wishes, Kai

Hey Tiger. All my apologies here for being absent. I was right. You have grown into a formidable poet more so. Who cannot love such raw passion with words that you hauled up from a very deep well. Im off to yet another funeral. They killed a neighbour down the road . Sorry to even mention this. Hence my absence. Too ashamed to talk. Thank you for looking me up. All my love here. Xx

I am noticing Daniel's comment and am wondering, was this about a person? I was taking it literally as the essence of that color that I read about Patina. It is so interesting to see where people take this topic. Your take on it is very poetic, Caycay. I bet the judge likes yours better than mine. He has given me one win in four years!!!

It's fictional - about one who is insecure in a supposed love relationship and questions the sincerity of the other who's emotions appear vague / superficial to them. I hope you read this. I debated whether you actually wanted me to explain. Love ... CayCay

I am certain that would be his loss. Nicely penned, CayCay. Good luck!
