Οn Excitment's Fervour - Poem by dimitrios galanis

At an autumn's cold evening

as the wave was popping into shore

I got the impression it was sweeping away

the leaves of memory's tissues

where in summer we had written

love promises οn excitment's fervour.

    The initial frenzy of love slowly waning with the passage of time...how wonderfully you have put it. Using the Nature imagery, you have described your feelings in a great way. A wave sweeping away the leaves of memory...loved this image. Great work. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful and romantic! Waves may sweep the fervor and excitement of love but memory of it keeps coming back to touch the shore for what was once there, till we realize that even the memory of it is chipped away with time. (Report) Reply

    Love sometimes only has a season, a time and place where two hearts unite, the Autumn chill is a reminder of what could have been!
    Superb write!

    The cooling of love, even the passing of love in just two seasons: there may be another way of loving which will prevail but I will stay with your drama of a fervor and excitement which burns itself out on the surface but there are still inner transformations to consider. Self-knowledge is one. Shared sympathy is another. Anais Nin wrote aboutthis. She said sex was a key to intimacy on a spiritual plane and that rapport lasted, and was liberating. (Report) Reply

    I do feel the temptation to agree with Anais Nin.You see it's only us, humans, who can lay down a spiritual plane besides the key of sex.Our civilized invented by us world.
