Teach Me To Whisper

Teach Me To Whisper

A Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell
"

Teach me to whisper like early-morn blush against the cheek of the illumined sky.

"


Teach me to whisper like early-morn blush

against the cheek of the illumined sky,

like the green blades of grass beside the rush

of the river that is hastening by.


Teach me the love that is found in a rose

and written in crimson calligraphy

across the earth, making merry of woes,

in a swirl of fire and epiphany.


Teach me the touch of immortal extent,

wherein forever is found in a flash,

where shadows of thought are an aliment,

a source of life among ruin and ash.


Teach me the hope of the blossoming bud,

tremendously tender and spun sublime,

with her flesh on fire from euphoric blood

and flaming curves that are bedewed with time.


Teach me the truth of mist on the water,

the white shroud of silence that drapes the blue,

where shadows hush like a quiet daughter,

waiting for the winds of a warmer hue.


Teach me the love of a lifetime of bliss,

where warm shades of passion burn like a fire,

where foreplay flutters are born in the kiss

between lips of unquenchable desire.


Teach me the joy that I see in your eyes

whenever I see you looking at me,

in that intimate way you alchemize

and turn my soul into a rhapsody.


Teach me to whisper the words of my heart,

the lover's song that I'm aching to sing

and bridge the distance which keeps us apart

by teaching heart how to lift its redwing.

Incredible...a sublime mix of hearthstone, open skies, and heartbeats.
'Teach me the love that is found in a rose
and written in crimson calligraphy
across the earth, making merry of woes,
in a swirl of fire and epiphany.'

Your touch in this poem beggars description. Where has your work been hiding?

Wonderfully complete and truly, truly original.

I have been browsing the web for good poems for sometime now and honestly I have not read something this touching till now. I am a very big fan of poetry and your poem spoke to me really deep. I don't know if anyone else felt the way I did but it really touched my heart and I felt like those words were coming from my own heart. I think this is what poetry should do, in the first place. It should speak to the reader and make him or her relate. Very well done to you. I absolutely loved the language and your style. This was very well written. Keep this good job going and I am definitely going to check your writing more often. Looking forward to your next poem!

Teach me the love of a lifetime of bliss,
where warm shades of passion burn like a fire,
where foreplay flutters are born in the kiss
between lips of unquenchable desire.

Three little words should be enough to describe this poem:

OH. MY. GOD.

I have seriously never read something this good before (well, I HAVE). But, still...WOW.
As Rodyann said below, you have to be an experienced writer or have at least a lot of experience under your belt to write this well. I noticed about halfway through the poem that you were rhyming. I barely noticed it, it was so good. As for imagery, chockful of it yet flowed naturally without feeling suffocated.

I could go on forever, but you get the point.

That was beautiful! Word choice knocked me over, took the breath out of my lungs. Work like this only comes from expirienced writers, and I see that in you. Congratz! Keep writing! =)

this is well written poem. of love no less. although not a fan of the topic love i found this poem really nice.

Teach me to whisper the words of my heart,
the lover's song that I'm aching to sing
and bridge the distance which keeps us apart
by teaching heart how to lift its red wing.

About
Poetry has been my passion since I was about fifteen years old, and I love the structure of rhyme and meter moreso than just randomly throwing words upon a page without any form whatsoever. Whi.. more..
