The Color of Comfort

The Color of Comfort

A Poem by Livana Lowell

Passion washes my world with color
like the iridescent light raining on the trees
and the reds, oranges, and pinks on seas
It seduces my tongue with thyme and ginger
like the hands of a sweet lover
who invites me to dance and taste her lips
but enthralls me with the sway of her hips. 
When I look into her glowing eyes
I see fields like oceans and violet skies
with comforting breezes full of redolence
and when I search for the end after my indulgence
and my skin has wrinkled and turned pale
Her fruit-bearing voice will follow me in trail
and I'll see her caressing my arms
lulling me with her youthful charms

Author's Note

Livana Lowell
So what do you think? So what inspired this one was me sitting around thinking man what if I end up single and alone for the rest of my life, but then I think about my passion for writing and the future and whether I am alone or not doesn't seem so scary.

This is a magical personification of writing. I enjoyed the imagery from every line of it.

Except, question:
This line: "seduces my tongue with thyme and ginger"

I am not quite sure I understand its placement or connection to the poem.

Is it to state that "Passion" "seduces the tongue?" Grabbing from the first line?

If so, I feel that's kind of a stretch after all that beautiful imagery from prior lines. Had me lost and confused questioning its purpose. (Maybe it's just me) after a second read it flowed within my mind, hmmm?

Otherwise, an awesome poem. From start to finish. Magnificent imagery. And flow.

Nicely written!

A simplistic idea, "just add the pronoun 'it' before the line."

Just some thoughts (:

There is a certain charm to the way this was worded. It had a few items that threw me. But only cause it took me a bit to understand their meaning. Personally, I think it is well thought out.

Amazing use of description dear Poet.
"When I look into her glowing eyes
I see fields like oceans and violet skies
with comforting breezes full of redolence"
The above lines. Wonderful and perfect way to describe the color of love. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

A very vivid interpretation of what you were attempting, and that opening line is just brilliant!
I love when a piece inspires (inspires, not forces) me to read it twice in one visit.
Thanks for sharing this 100/100
