all because

all because

A Poem by Lydia Shutter







a kiss of metaphor tickles my neck

like a raindrop of romance

in a flash 

the unfamiliar becomes familiar

the routine day becomes remarkable


i collect the words dancing off the pages

of you


your ginger scented syntax 

finds its way into

my “how to stay happy” manual


tossed and tumbled emotions

sway down the staircase of “what if”

eloquent thoughts erode into mere gibberish

all because of you

How wonderfully expressive and appreciative of the thoughts and feelings of another. The descriptions make me think of my own feelings when I read beautiful poetry or succinct passions that I wish to express but can't find in my own words. They acknowledge that someone else might say those things for us that leave us so often, mute. We place those words in our hearts and tuck them away safe in our memory to treasure, time and time again, because they let us know...we are NOT alone. Beautiful. F.

Top notch poetry and art. The reader can't get enough. You mold romance into deep shapes and shades. The reader just has to enjoy it all...

So many romantic lines in this by the best. But I think the opening line cracks the lot for me.

Thanks so much, Ken. I appreciate your review. Lydi**
solid ... very romantic ... keeping it real poem .. love the title, killer opening line and this one "your ginger scented syntax" ... i think the brilliance is in the thread that creative writers experience .. presented in such a unique way ... the tickling of the neck will stay with me ... when inspiration does such a thing it is mwavelous indeed .. mighty fine read for me ma'am! Nice new pic too :))))))))))))))))))))))
