salty winds of change

salty winds of change

A Poem by Lydia



“An Aspiring Actress Arrives In Hollywood” by Janet Hill

courtesy of etsy.com




i tasted the salty winds of change

while leaning on the lamp post of desire

my past and present roads

                     intersected sensually

unspent fantasies jingled in my pockets

stars chattered about it all

till the sun awakened with a smile

all because

          you tied a sensual melody

                  around my dreams

This would appear to be one of those romantic pieces you were telling me about ;) I do sense a dark metaphor at work here, but the lyrical sway of your images and observations compel me to consider it a love story. Yet it can still be read and interpreted in any number of ways. And like many below, I thought the unspent fantasies was a killer image and a sort of thesis statement for all that follows. Wonderful work :)

Thank you for your review. Lydi**
Hello, dear Lydi. This is short but splendid. I like the wordplay.
Sometimes people cling to fantasy which will feed their desire...
A clever piece once again!

I really loved this, Lydia.
Such a sensually wistful, youthful and blissful piece.

You had me at 'lamp post of desire'.

I always appreciate your visits, Pat....thank you so much. Lydi**
Lydia can't say all I would like to about this on his iPhone
It is melancholy and so beautiful
You always have the most beautiful pictures accompanying
your writing as for this one I wonder if her dreams became a reality
Or were they to lose because they were not tied in a ribbon so they slip away
Gorgeous

"unspent fantasies", I think lydi you will always have a pocket full to give to us in poems just like this one maybe it's a strange analogy, but your muse is like the tooth faerie,and several nights and sometimes days, he leaves these fantasies in your pockets, on your dresser, hell maybe even in your closet... but, and here is the wonderful part, you share them with us, leaving us hum along with this"sensual melody"... SIGH . more lydi more..er... I mean "nice" poem Lydi... --redzone

Your graphic captured the innocence of one about to engage on her first affair of the heart, Lydi, and your poem provided to the lyrics to go along with your "sensual melody." I was particularly struck by the line:

unspent fantasies jingled in my pockets

What an imagination you have! Terrific!

thank you so much, Joyce. I always appreciate your reviews. Lydi**
Dreams they drive us, comfort us and set us free. I love the silken ribbon of the ending:

all because

you tied a sensual melody

around my dreams
