mouthwatering moments

mouthwatering moments

A Poem by Lydia Shutter


artwork by andrew atroshenko






delicate and dainty

the minutes we spend together

are like porcelain plates

setting the table for an elegant meal

in these mouthwatering moments

adjectives refuse to define my emotions

adverbs roam and participles are free to dangle

linguistic categories have blurry lines

conjunctions fill gaps no human would dare

interjections overflow with love

these tiny threads of time have woven themselves

into an ever changing tapestry

growing more exquisite each time we meet

that’s why even in the alone of my time

you are right here beside me

toujours et toujours

The title is a beckoning bit of nice alliteration, followed by the same, again in the first line. This feels like your always-well-done wordplay pieces, as you dance around, weaving writing concepts with alluring sensory imaginings. I just noticed you also weave tapestries here *smile* I love the ending sentiments about always being there even during alone time.

we do all we can to wring from words every drop of life ...and immediately see them as fresh and new as that snow storm in Kansas ;) i think your poem is like a snowflake ..delicate; but the geometry as in that snowflake holds strong through out as metaphor ...as the English language is brutalized by instagram and all that stuff ..i appreciate your bringing all those subtleties to bear ... simply lovely .. romantic to beat hell ..and a fine touch in your French closing ... sighhhhhhhhhhhh! ;)

dear Lydi, there is an elegance to being with someone who appreciates the finer delicacies of life... When Roger calls me "Rabbit", I assume he is thinking about Alice in Wonderland and the Tea Party with the Rabbit! Absolutely divine poetry. truly, Pat
