Fantasy II

Such lovely hands
You pretty thing! -
And finger blessed
With telling ring

To scoff at me
That you are wed! -
What lucky man
Might share a bed

Upon the nights
When lust abounds
And he in rhythm
O'er your mounds.

"If that were true
My cheeks would flush, "
She cooed in answer,
Then to gush
In wantonness -

Her consummation
Drought aware
That I now tout
To ply repair …

Desire replete
Her smile of eyes
Assured our secret
Bears disguise.

Flowers

Sprays of colour lit the room
To bring a sparkle to the eyes;
Sharp aroma bit the air
To bid the sleepy nose arise!

And underneath, a subtle message
Wafted out of bloom.

Little need for empty scribbles;
Clumsy poems to reconcile -
Petals danced, sang in hues
To out his pleading in the while.

And for the cry to silken ear,
Her answer floated in a tear.

Fools

Let us go –
Not unto the wilderness
Or to climb interminability,
But on towards the overgrown paths
Of random drifts
Burning blood that courses thro’ our minds

Perhaps we’ll up and leave atop a cumulus
Ha! The fading dawn of lies
Betrays the dinosaurian happiness –
Yes, we bloomed upon a time
Rolling out our possibilities,
Naivety the undertones

And as we fall –
No need for us to shy away from images
Of nakedness caressing inner tones of skin
Atop your sheets, calculating rhythms
For the climax, coming for the come –
You can’t deny
We were;

Pray! rejoice the times
We bore the senselessness
Of circumstantial romance
In readiness for marriage in our dreams

Do not fade in curses,
Greys,
Or any other asymptotes,
For I loved you,
I truly
Did,
Do –
And ever shall your searching eyes,
Limpid in reflection

We fools,
Rejected by our fate,
Struggle on

But worry not,
I have a song

For Kipling!

I love those classical Kipling lines,
Bouncing, dancing off the page
In rhythm and rhyme – and all in time -
Inviting us all to thus engage

His flow of genius pure and blessed
In tales of life so riddled with grit,
And bearing souls with words possessed
With all the Master's heav'nly wit!
