ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

A Poem by Sir Joe
"

Storm clouds cover the light; In darkness, there's blindness. The rest, history cites.

"

Ours is this summer night
Conquered by the blue moon
As seldom as this flight.

Chirping crickets swallow
The rustle of dry leaves
And of the undergrowth.

Luna peeks through the trees,
Wanting to bear witness
To our mutual feast.

Wild wolves' howls from afar
Harmonize with your groans
As I taste some sugar.

Our sudden about-face!
Your turn's my time to shine;
You o'erlay, I stargaze.

Your head down, my chin up,
Fair lady, gasp for air!
But for God's sake, don't stop!

Storm clouds cover the light;
In darkness, there's blindness.
The rest, history cites.

Dear Sir Joe

You have honoured me with many reviews, for which thank you.

My turn to return your compliments.

I never know how to start a review.

These days it is simply a mix between how I feel and what a piece says to me.

And yours says much.

Your are from the Philippines and I from the UK.

But as I often say, our differences may as easily unite as much as our similarities may divide.

Your poem:

You caught me in our first line:

"Ours is this summer night"

Wherever we hail from, there are summer nights.

A point of inevitable correspondence.

But once caught you draw me in as any good writer (and you are) should.

Summer nights fade into blue moons.

Crickets do not exist in The UK.

But when I have been abroad, where it is hot, they do.

How to spend an evening listening to the song of cicadas?

How do you spend yours here?

In this case, in my view, making love.

And making love with passion.

Sex in situ.

Sugar in sex?

Yes!

Sex in writing?

Yes!

I apologise to anyone who closes their ears to sex, but it has often appeared to me over the years that it is rather more than a biological function!

Smile please. You are on Candid Camera!

It is a joy!

It is something to luxuriate in.

As you say 'Don't stop'

Best not if you are 'stargazing' while she is 'o'erlay'ing!

You enchant me with your sexual honesty.

Places people perhaps fear to tread as reviewers.

And even in their reviews (no complaint) others refuse to openly state.

Why?

In case they get it wrong.

Are we all prudes?

Who cares? I am not. Nor are you.

Take it as it comes.

Writing and the reading thereof is only ever a joint experience.

You have offered your reality.

I have merely offered you mine and my take; my reality in return.

Have I misunderstood you?

Perhaps.

Should you care?

No!

Accomplished writing?

Yes!

But more than that entirely open honest and disarming.

Can I find fault in your poem?

No or by now even I would have told you so.

Sir Joe?

I shall look forward to reading you more

With my warmest regards

Your friend


James

A wonderful tapestry of fine woven ink. I love the why an intimate embrace is spoken of, without speaking of it. The visuals and etherial yet, oh so powerful energy to this piece, really makes it a feast for the eyes.

Great Ink!

Your welcome!
Yes indeed you must beware of that celestial sphere and most definitely howl at the moon.
Loved this stanza.

Luna peeks through the trees,
Wanting to bear witness
To our mutual feast.

Though if it a blue moon you must have been under heavy cover r she would illuminate you. But then you o'erlay to stargaze that was too fun.

Very sensual write.

Thank you, DCT, for reading this work of mine. =)
Quite a piece.

Steamy, yet not vulgar at all. Descriptive and filled with passion and excellent imagery that pulled me in and kept my attention until the final lines.

A most enjoyable read.

I really enjoyed this write, love the strength in it.
The title caught my eyes as well. I knew a country
song with this title. I like this gives a certain vision.
