Wash Me With Your Words

Wash Me With Your Words

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Composed in French Kyrielle form..

"

Wash Me With Your Words

I let my warm imagination spring,
"Oh my, how your caress sets me aglow!"
Let's listen to what unsung songs will bring;
then, as you wash me with your words,
 I'll know.

I let you take me in your warm embrace,
with all your love upon me please bestow!
I wonder why I gift you my sweet grace?
Then, as you wash me with your words, I'll know.

I let myself to you be swept away,
 
my eyes filled by the wonderment you show! 
Around 'n round within your arms, I sway; 
then, as you wash me with your words, I'll know.

I let you reach the depths of  my cold heart, 
whence you turn hardened glaciers to soft snow.
And, now no one can e’er pull us apart! 
Then, as you wash me with your words, "I'll know!"

It is a most enthralling composition, Yumna! : )
With beautiful picture, apt font and color, creative word selections, romantic ambiance, spot-on rhymes, and a flow smooth as warm honey, your lovely mind, heart, and soul have shared a masterpiece of true poetic excellence to make one's imagination virtually melt.
Every verse sings, and your refrain, "Then, as you wash me with your words, I'll know" tied it all together in an embracing bow of romantic promise.
What a pleasure it has been to work with you in learning and writing this excellent piece, Yumna … thank you ever-so warmly and gratefully for your trust in me, and the honor of teaching you your first Kyrielle … you are an amazing poetess! ⁓ Richard ✨

It is wonderful, "Wash me with Words" is amazing. I don't know this form but yet I loved the way of expressing the feelings and with contemporary rhyming.
Beautiful!!!:)

This is very impressive. I don't think I've ever read a rhyming poem by you (maybe one) and to see you step out of your comfort zone and write something like this is truly amazing. It shows a lot of skill with its spot-on meter and smoothly flowing rhymes. I also love the soft feel of this piece in that every line feels warm and romantic ... fits the refrain quite well. I especially liked the last stanza with the "hardened glaciers" and "soft snow" analogies.

I must also say that the Kyrielle is my favorite form. I like to write them when I want to release emotion. The majority of them, however, don't make any sense.

Your poem has a delicate flow that speaks of gentle persuasion. Trying something new is healthy and a confidence builder. You have learned the Kyrielle form well.
I enjoyed your poem and look forward to reading more of your work.
