shangri-la

shangri-la

A Poem by Lydia


artwork by hessam abrishami






a languid afternoon dallies

just long enough to find its poetry

fingers hover wistfully

circling till the right keystrokes are audaciously unclothed

a kiss blown from the upturned palm of a cagey muse

sequesters concepts

scattered like leaves in the gutter after a rainstorm

a whispered fantasy’s warm breath

gives way to frenzied utterings

and once again i’m transported to shangri-la

I love the title word & all that it conjures up in the reader's mind. Your sensory observations add to the idea of experiencing Shangri-La & I always love your gentle way of spilling out gentle words so full of stimulation for all the senses *smile* Fondly, Margie

we don't decide when.....the muse does....and when it does we are
on the road to Shang-rila......had me humming three dog night's Shambala.....
"how does your light shine?"

and when does the poetic light shine...i really like the sequestered concept----

You are a sweetheart, Al. Thank you so much. Lydi**
This is so beautiful Lydi. A day where lines like these are delivered is always a good day. I especially like the line about the cagey muse, that line is just...well, it's worth the admittance price alone :)

Wow! This is something many of us on WC experience in our creative searches and our interactions with those we come to admire, and sometimes adore. So beautifully told with your usual amazing picture Lydi.
