The poem(s) are below...



Sevilla, the evening pins flowers on your hair
A pirouette of tasselled gown rustles by
Igniting a lusty swirl along theater’s wing,
Over spotlights on red liquefied hips
That kiss of flamenco gyres into a dance ;
Relishing the wine which drips as you lift
And tap those feet through moonshine’s gloam:
O, such swaggers devour my senses
While Latin music sets the castanets ablaze--
Then a pause, a sensuous movement, jigging.

Sevilla, you are a luscious pageant of a song,
A brief canticle gliding on my bones, that I
Fondle you in the dark    caressing scented nape:
What endless thrill you bring on an August dusk!
Then together drunken madly ,   recklessly 
I will be  love's sunrise, and you my finale's art,
As  this heart etches a twirl in flamenco sighs,
Clinging to each refrain of such possessed trance.

    Stunning imagery and sensuality Nette, who needs a picture, you painted the scene so well with your words, should do very well in the contest!

    Delightful music and beauty flow from this Flamenco offering, Nette. Body movements and footwork are very much in evidence. The second stanza enthralls with sensuality. If the sponsor asked for a painted picture he needs look no further! Hugs // paul

    The power of this work lies in its subliminal seduction-- a swagger here and drunkenness there. Exceptional!
