Narcissus

A Poem by Lingering Soul

Image result for narcissus image


Branches blew a pink voiceless wish 
Narcisseae swaying with soft aurora air

Embelish hefty embodier this lover's life
Wearing patrician crowns of youthful dew 

Eyes twinkle a distance to words sedulously spoken
Secludes away the breezy reclusive bush

Fragrant surroundings by her ellipse 
Soul bracelet to breathless short exhale

Buds of delicacy took on an angle
Staring at the river of fiery joy

Ways to euphoric heaves

In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia who was known for his beauty. I found this piece light, stylish and wonderfully creative - you certainly captured the imagery of the subject matter in an exciting manner!

The final line sets the entire poem akimbo. Very interesting collision with the end.

Fulfilling in every aspect!

I have learned a few words here, and wow, they are delectable ones... You write with a cascading flow that twinkles on the breeze of a reclusive wheeze... Absolutely breath-taking work.... Beautifully penned...

Is the flower striking a pose. Come to me.
The river flowing by, gives only a short time to bloom.

Hum, again your words both calm and please me. Your poetry paints such beautiful pictures and I of course love the last line of "euphoric heaves." :)

Well Done

i wonder if those water flowers look at their reflection in a lake or pond...see the glassy image and admire their own beauty...
