Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Meeting of Souls.

Every once in a while something magical
Happens when ordinary life turns itself
Into the call of the wild. Soul meets soul.

And insists on wholeness. Sensuality
Dawns with a mere fleeting kiss, unfolds
Sensation of falling to chasms of bliss.
Nothing before has entranced you like this.
You are walking on air, and emboldened.

Annuling relationships, which were prone
To mundane, always failing, this alone
Now enlightens your sad, icy-cold heart.

It inhibits pretensions once shown, and
Exposes vast spaces of new fresh-faced
Assurance. Feeling it's rightness, and some
Strange release, you are now totally sure.
Lost before, you've now found your way home.

    This piece has the gliding movement of ''The Skater's Waltz....The fine line, but one that forms the binding nexus with love, romance, and well expressed here...Excellent work, young lady!

    Besides the fine message of this enchanting poem, what particularly appealed to me was it's structure, Fay. One does not often see the combination of three and five line verses in a poem, as generally is all one or the other, though I have seen three line verses to begin and end a traditional quatrain poem several times. But in poetry, it is not the structure, but the words which make an impact upon the reader, this this fine write does that very well. One cannot escape the feeling of being a bit happier for having read this delightful write. Carl. (Report) Reply

    A wonderful lyric accounting of the meeting of souls. A much healthier encounter than depicted in your Dangerous Liason. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
