come with me

come with me

A Poem by Lydia


artwork courtesy of pinterest



come with me

watch as peppermint thoughts turn to licorice

smile as i scavenge

salvaging what is left of this day

it’s true, you know

flowers in the vase of life

need more than rain to stay vibrant

perhaps a troupe of clowns engaging in festivities

‘neath a coterie of stars?

no?  what can I say?

we all need a kinder place to run to

 

come with me

climb up to the tippy top of the rainbow

where we can peacefully sleep on fluffy clouds

then, tomorrow morning

taste the sauna samba sunrise with me

the sort seen only once every forever

listen carefully to hear butterfly wings

play a lustful jazzy tune

this pulse of passion morning can mutate into night

we’ll touch…consumed by desire

share my multicolored need

sighs will slip and slide till we gloriously yield

come with me

So delightful & full of sensuous playful enchantment! The way life is tough for so many these days, I also find myself wanting an escape which I get thru poetry, both reading & writing. This poem inspires me even more to find such magical places where we can carve out a moment's hideaway. Every single word is so fresh & original, the things I love most in writing! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i would love to "Come with (you) ... " ;) who can resist the instant attraction of peppermint and licorice? i like the very coy and resourseful way she diplomatically point out the need for flowers to thrive number one...and to have those attentions that are more than mere rain .... anone can water plants right ...takes a finer lover to attend :) i like the top of the rainbow and cloud sleeping quarters ... and invitation to a "samba sunrise" ... i especially like that..i may steal it and use it one day if i feel Casanova enough ;} good stuff as always Lydia! glad i found it .. read it a couple times just to make the moment last

Oh, ole blue eyes himself.....his music was the best. If only. Thanks so much, Andrew. Lydi**
I honestly feel jealous of the way you can shape words into the most beautiful sentences..!!
'Watch as peppermint thoughts turn to licorice' The beauty lies in the simplicity. Lovely..!!
(P.S: I hate the fact that 'did you?' had mature content and I'll just have to wait a year to read it..!)

dear Lydi... your poem is written with the delicacy of the song, "Send in the clowns" from the 1973 musical "A Little Night Music". The lyrics "Isn't it rich? Are we a pair? Me here, at last, on the ground You in mid-air... Send in the clowns"... ending with "what a surprise!
Who could foresee? I'd come..." Lydi, your poetry "Come with me... Taste the sauna samba sunshine with me... the sort seen only once every forever"... Is
Indeed a climatic ending. truly, Pat
