Spanish Hair in the Moonlight

Spanish Hair in the Moonlight

A Poem by Michael G. Smith

Spanish hair playing
     Tricks in the moonlight 
Reflecting mysterious 
     From soul of aqua eyes

Speaking, in tongues
     From the dark, blazing lips
As the waiting sunrise
     Fragile, ready to break

"Take me" from night; cries
     Stretch hands beckon 
Soft as snow winds laden 
     Amid twilight whirlwind dance

Cheek on cheek arousing
     Whilst I touch cool fading mists
Swirling layers of lace gypsy 
     Where love ripples 'way

Spanish hair playing
     Tricks in the moonlight 
Upon waters overlook 
     Teasing heart's imagination

I really enjoy this poem. It feels like it's happening right in front of me, even though I have no idea who this poem is about. I always love a poem with good imagery and you did a great job of that. Another thing I like is how unique the poem is - I've never read one anything like this! It makes it very personal, almost as if I'm reading from your diary!!

The imagery you employ is so vivid....I could picture her. Seductive and sensually charged romantic write, Michael. I liked it a lot. Lydi**

Thanks Lydi, I'm glad you liked it.
I'm in love with the imagery and flow of this piece. I like how each stanza was virtually uniform in detail and quality of description ... I think they'd each stand well as separate poems but nevertheless, they meld together well too. I also like the repetition of "Spanish hair playing" in the first and last stanzas. Overall, a well crafted poem.

Thanks Gullia. Once again love inspires.
"Take me" from night; cries
Stretch hands beckon
