 U l t i m a t e Po e t e s s

-~~-


Her ink vibrates in universal amplitude,

with such sure vibrant force pure ecstasies exude …

releasing with each graceful sweep of every stroke,

her words resound upon the page, as tho’ they'd spoke.

-~~-

Her flowing mane, as ebon as the Stygian night,

or golden as soft-textured braids, corn-silken bright.

I’ve seen her auburn waves, as hot as Hades’ fire;

or, lustrous brunette strands, that spark ardent desire.

-~~-

Oh, passion’s touch, awake unto life’s fervent dreams,

that evermore, desires and wantings merge as streams.

From every heartsong pours her sweet elixir’s voice,

eternal rapture ~ captured … aye, you'll have no choice.

-~~-

The shape she takes, it may be lithe or slightly slim …

might be, she’s strong or stout; perhaps, or fairly prim.

She’s every woman who has bravely shared her heart,

learned how to charm us with her wonders from the start.

-~~-

Each smitten bard in every land and realm worldwide,

has surely yearned to have her writing by his side …

impressive with her graceful wisdom’s keen surprise,

indulge him with the magic in her spark’ling eyes.

-~~-

If Free Verse, Sonnet, Villanelle, or lovely Prose,

it matters not what kind of poem she bestows;

for, when she blends her heart and soul into her ink,

it's hers you'll be ~ when she signs with a knowing wink*

This poem is so lovely it plays like a melody.
So tender and silky, it speaks to me.
How many hearts have you stolen or left throats swollen?
My dear man you are a rare gift with song,
Please don't keep me not waiting long
For another chance to hear your voice
Please understand I have no choice.
I'd love to dance to your tune
In the hour of midnights first June.
(Ok hardly is it advice to give or comment made. But I had to answer in this way, for to read your words is to dance in celebration to a man who celebrates women. Thank you for sharing

I honestly think certain works of art are only found within the capacity of a person’s gender or their gender experiences at the least.
A fitting tribute. And an enjoyable read.

Thank you for sharing your gift here.

'Ultimate Poetess'
Richard,
This is a poem which by it's inclusive style woos the lady writer to have confidence. Affirmation is so important! I got a kick out of the descriptive character housed within. Everyone different in appearance but still with a voice all her own. Good job!

Hi Richard,
On my first visit to read your poems this is the most beautiful one I have ever seen in presentation and writing to honor and pay tribute to all women poets. To me this is ultimate poetry for each Ultimate Poetess. The painting is stunning too and the title is perfect -- it is unimaginable that these smooth rhythmic lines and rhymes could be bettered.
If it is right to say I have fallen in love with a poem I do not know, but I have fallen for this one.
Richard, would this poem be considered a classic form you mentioned in your review of my poem The POET?
The designs add the perfect flair that helps bring everything to life -- I can not say enough of this poem's beauty and elegance. Surely the ladies love it too.

Thank you Richard for letting us all share your master artistry -- with highest respect,
Roth

‘When she blends her heart and soul into her ink.’ This whole poem captures your heart and mind and you lose yourself in the words. Truly a classic kind of poem full on intense passion and words. It almost is like a song. It’s amazing, superb crafted work. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks!
Glad you did.
As I’ve read and become familiar with the work of several of the poetesses on this site, I’ve felt — but failed to put into words — exactly the sentiments you so eloquently express in this poem. Thank you!
