A Poem by Inkcognito

...a rambling bouquet of random thoughts...


I picked you a bright, large aromatic bouquet

lavender passion and capacious orange lust

bluebells of desire - velvet ruby roses of love

delicate temptations - lilies fragrantly frosted

candy scented pure luminous alabaster skin

take delivery of dreams through midnight ink

and send me a note of thanks in the morning

Really unusual structure, I love it, it's packed together densely, like the best bouquets! Just pure flow, almost stream-of-consciousness, with no real punctuation and no true line breaks, so it hits us as one solid, compact passage. I almost felt like I absorbed this poem rather than read it. Your use of color and fragrance is very sensual, I especially like the interplay of fragrantly frosted / luminous alabaster / midnight ink... like the play of moonlight on dark water. There is something very vivid and "living" about this poem. I'm interested in the unusual mood / emotion associations you make with various colors.... lavender passion, orange lust, blue desire.... because they are perhaps not the most usual parallels, these really stand out, and help to make the poem your own. I really like "take delivery of dreams through midnight ink", it works well with the poem, but could almost stand alone, it's such a great line, and could mean so many things if considered in isolation. Excellent :-)

A lovely write!
Random thoughts they may be, but they are charged with emotions and aimed at someone specific and once arranged in a bouquet, they lose the randomness and become a gathering of like minded things and those that compliment them.

Nicely done.
