 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*


-~~-

Turnin'-to, mate!
How beautiful this is on reading it yet again, and what an accolade from a poet to a poetess as he bows in acknowledgment of her worthiness.
I am learning to appreciate all these wonderful writings. They are food for the soul.
Thank you.
Only 100 I am afraid. It would not accept 110!

In gratitude I write,"A tribute that outruns all others for 'Midas' has enhanced your touch. The charm of words is certainly there- blushes you seek to spare - for you the 'Bard', have brought forth words that for others would have been hard!"
