New Wave

A Poem by Melobldnfr
"

In admiration of a fellow poet.

"

08/10/11

 

I am slack-jawed, agape in awe of your artistry.

Your works make me curious.

In your face and your lines I see a soul, as I am,

Old and adrift in a time not quite yours and not quite mine.

I see lovers and sisters beneath the moon,

I splash in seas of incessant thirsts,

I experience transgressing depths startlingly potent:

Poignant sapphire, sapphic emerald and haunted jade

Whereby ruby remains bleed amethyst

Beneath a white-hot citrine sun in some smoky crystal shade.

It is bitter-sweet as lemonade,

And beautiful as the making of a sword or some craft

Taken for granted despite the gravity of such undertakings.

New wave, not so new, how you take me

As salt from my pores and sand beneath my feet...

I read this several times. It was so good. The whole subject...being inspired to write in admiration of a fellow poet, that is what writing and reading is all about for me. So glad I looked this up. Thankyou.

Oh damsel of the moon your rhetoric sweeps the sky clean..a crystal flow of fluid air so clean and crisp and cold. Your words are the stuff of life to a jaded poets ear.
Magnificent.
