Treasure Island



Ms. Nivedita.

Why cave navel?
Navigate I’ll
Keep not enigmatic.

Your enigmatic navel
A makeshift
From mother fixation
Of neonatehood
To fiancée fixation
Of younghood
Is my visual cuddle.

Put on low waist jeans
Tattoo butterfly around
Decor with diamond
Navel ring jocund.

Silhouette sable.

A romantic trespass
To unravel marvel
Of ballet ruffle.

With glib
Glide gait
Will titrate
Alchemy in
Unfolding of
Petals’ rouleau,
A smiling rose bud
On your enigmatic navel!

Coalescing sweat beads
In vermillion of setting sun
Psychedelic color play
In sparkling diamond
Butterflies zoom out
Heart sweetening
Dance on arc of rainbow
Voluptuously flummox me.

My tryst
Your enigmatic navel,
My noetic ride in
Ebullient tunnel!

In sensuous navel
Bedeck floral travel
Babble twaddle tattle
Oho hoo-oo oho hoo-oo
Why not join you too?

    Who is the speaker? a man? OOfs....
    It may be a woman as well. In Shakespeare's Twelfth Night Viola itemised the varied parts of human anatomy while extolling the matchless beauty of Olivia... But she was a woman disguised as a man.
    Wonderful is your writing. I am still amazed to think about the identity of the sex - is the speaker a man in disguise of a woman? (Report) Reply

    Poor navel as you cluster and edge it, like in foreplay;
    And butterflies lift to your delusions and desires.

    Could not stop laughing, as you twist words to talk about its attachment to the mother and how your fiancée is captured in its total fatality. (Report) Reply

    Hi Niv - this is a vey sensual poem on a sacred part of the female anatomy being the point of the connection of the umbiliacal chord. It is important that Males would treat it with gentleness and respect as an area of special significance and not just another erogenous zone. I was a Moderator for Beauty Therapy in the London Colleges and I am aware - from visits to Turkey - that Asian Ladies are more prone to navel adornment than those in the West. Your poem opens with a assertion that you regard covering the navel as archaic and that 21st Century Ladies should both dcorate the navel and display it publicly. 'Put on low waist jeans - Tattoo buterfly around - Decor with diamond - Navel ring jocund'. Verse Five - Introduces the suggestion that the decorated and gyrating navel is part of the female allurment. 'Unfolding of petals rouleau - A smiling rosebud - on your enigmatic navel. Hipsters and cropped tops allow many UK Teens to display their navels and they too take the opportunity to bejewel or tattoo. Verse Seven - leaves us in no doubt as to the sensuality of the adorned navel and its attractiveness to all. 'Psychedelic colour play - Butterflies zoom out - Dance on an arc of rainbow - Voluptuously flummox me'. Personally I find this adorned display (on the young) perfect and very emotive. It has its place in the emancipation of New Woman. The last two verses explain (to some extent) the purpose of the adornment and the display. 'My tryst your enigmatic navel - in sensuous navel - why not join you too'. A sensuous poem like this is emotionally draining but in its analysis one learns the erogenous power of a little discussed zone and one is wiser for that. Perfect in structure - controlled in its language - complete in its lesson - it merits a full TEN. Love you in Poetry - JOHN X (Report) Reply
