He was....

He was....

A Poem by Fran Marie




He was poet
he was
he was poetry
he was poor
he was rich
he was..

he was summer spent sunlight
and winter worn
with weathered wrinkle skin
he was autumn
ample abundance
and spring smiles ..
special and sumptuous
he was ..

he was first
and last and
In between
he always was..

he was midnight bourbon
stirred with passion pouring
..a potion of which I tasted
he was cigarette smoke mixed with desire
...a torrid heat which I inhaled

he was nothing
he was everything
he was poetry

he was
.yes ..he was

and. we were. harmony
we were.
yes~we were

Few realize that Free Verse poetry is not simply talking, far beyond and deeper than prose, that it must contain metaphor, emotion, imagery, creative imagination, flow, poetic voice … intriguing, image-laden artwork, too.

But, none of that escaped you … in fact, there's so much more you've laid between the lines and "he was" refrains for one to become lost to -- merely in the innuendos of passion, romance, longing, harmonious rhythms, the floating sense of sensuality that almost intoxicates the senses ⁓ yes, you were.

Here's one that'll hang-on for awhile … wink* 'n a smile, oh-MY!
Thanks again, Fran Marie ⁓ Richard 🍃

Dream number 9 was always one of my favorite songs. It brings back memories along with imagine. Great words about him here, Fran.

Honor to read this Pat.
This is such fabulous free-verse poetry and I love it absolutely! To me it speaks of all things poetry and in poetry, all things desirable and awesome. Those things that leave on us their scent, their touch and their inspiration. You have created a wonder here with your pen, Ms. Fran. Kudos!

This was beautiful, Fran. You can only write something like this when you feel an encompassing loss, and look back on what once was, but is no more.
