A Poem by Lydia


artwork by garmash





even now

gray hair blowing in the sea breeze

beauty was her calling card

 

she tasted summer with lusty abandon

as tips of nostalgia were moistened

by the memory of a juicy peach

eaten at the beach

juice running down her chin

till “he” licked it off

 

oh yes, a liquefied reminiscence

whitecaps breaking over and under them

salty clean yet seductive giggles

turning into fulfilled fantasies

fit for kings and queens

ones only encountered in her wildest dreams…..or poetry

 

yes, even now

beauty was still her calling card

and poetry her salvation

Again, Lydi,
You've blessed us with a wondrously beautiful and meaningful fit of a painting … it's a though she's fanning her dress at life's cares to fly away, exactly how the moment and suggestive nuances of your poem make me want to toss it all to the wind, grab a handful of romance, chase a kite until breathless and drunk from laughter … then, soothe into slow, deliberate lovemaking … oops! Ya got me carried off there … blush!

"Calling card" and "salvation", it's an enthralling piece from your depthless well of sensual affection and imagery, we all adore and need!
Thank you, Dear Lady-Poet … warmest hugs to you! ⁓ Richard

Aging does not take away all of God's blessings. Beauty is also on the inside of a person. Valentine

A beautiful look into a woman's mind as she is growing older in body yet still young at heart. It is also a reminder that beauty and romance are timeless and can stay with us in mind and spirit and yes, through our poetry. A keeper for me Lydi.
