 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, just 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

Cleverly done. But don't forget... poets are tortured souls. We are broken angels with hard bought wisdom. Try not to make us too perfect!

I really like this. The rhyming was nicely done and the image it was paired with is very pretty. The only thing I would notice that it was a bit hard to read because of the font and coloring, but that could just be me. Overall, really well done in my opinion (though that's not worth much.) Good job!
