 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

Oh wow,
what a brilliant poem, I LOVED this poem, something about it spoke to me deeply...

"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*" the last stanza is my fav fav here.

You used such rich and evocative language throughout the poem to paint a vivid picture of the ultimate poetess. I admire this for sure.
Also your poem has a very flowing yet melodic rhythm. You always ACED poetry, hoping I can write more like you in the near future.

You used the ultimate poetess as a muse here, Thank you for sharing such magnificent work!
Keep well dear Richard!! 🤗🤗
-Amy.

Oh the love of a woman who write poetry in all its forms. Those of us that write seem to have feelings that run deeper and are more intense. All emotions not simply passion or love but sadness, anger, protectiveness. The full spectrum is felt quite deeply.

This sounds like many different types of woman writers in all their beauty and mystery. They can be compelling and bewitching with their alluring words on paper.

Stunning write with its description, emotions and the style in which it is written. Well done and beautifully captivating.

Very well captured in this piece, is what we have all known deep down for so long but have confusion putting into words, that the "fairer sex" are far more than that thinnest of veneers can be looked beyond and seen for what they are...which is basically far more than the sum of "our" parts and muchbmore than simply a decoration waiting for males approval for being interesting.
I think that the reader, no matter what prefix they attach to themselves would no doubt see that we really should be ignored more than we are and that these females of the poetical species snd spectrum could size full control and banish us into non existence by simply having no more children.
But we think that because we've had it our own way for so long that they will just smile prettily and say things like gosh and shucks, when all they really want to do is slap some sense into us and size control from those big fat clumsy meat hands of ours and banish us finally into admitting that it is all an act and we just got so used to being in charge, that we'd actually be relieved if they took their rightful place as the goddesses they are and maybe finally we can admit that we are just little boys who grow up into being big little boys, hoping for a proper grown up to tell us what life is really about and make us feel all better ☺
I've long thought that the real differences between the semester is that they have better thesaurus', despite my valiant attempts at procuring the aforementioned lady thesaurus, only to be either sneered at or completely ignored.
I blame bookshop owners for all of this, because no matter how many I try, they all insist that there is no such thing as a lady thesaurus, but us men know they exist..where else would baby sayrus' come from.
Despite being told I'm just an idiot, the search continues! ☺
Now I best be off before I ruin all my good work by starting to talk about all their lovely ladybits snd how they curve in and out in all the right places. I mean, come on!....and oops, me bad! ☺
