A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

Satisfied Shadows



tulips intertwine to announce spring's arrival
two lips meet another's in dangerous liaison
hearts dare,
summer heat a touch away.

Love this - short, simple, but powerful. It's a reflection of what could be and the passion that drives us forward. Well done!

I love the tulips intertwined. The arrival of spring and all the hopes and joys that are possible. The warmth of spring turning to summer heat.

Nicely done - Take care - Dave

When I see the word, "tulips", I think of Holland....and right away I love the poem! :) A poem that hints at a sordid affair, but does so elegantly! Good one, Jacob. Lydi**

Spring does turn a lover's fancy to
budding desires when tulips carress
under the shadow of an apple tree.
A liaison that that becomes a butterfly...
as ever, Pat

I like the word play in this poem Jacob. Tulips are like a breath of spring. I love their vibrancy. Red tulips especially. The other two lips meeting though, now that sounds positively scorchio. Nothing like a bit of heat and a dangerous liason sounds as though the temperature could become sizzling.

Don't ask me why, but this reminds me of a scene in a move entitled, Zandalee, with Nicholas Cage. Talk about summer heat! There's a scene where he has the woman up against an iron fence, and he says, "Do you know what I like the most?" She says, "What?" He replies, "When you don't have anything underneath." I believe it was filmed in New Orleans. Talk about the heat! I like how you use "tulips" and then "two lips" to represent the lovers. The wordplay is excellent! It makes me want to tiptoe through the tulips. :-) Just an aside and curiosity … Why went you give someone a rating of 100; and you're the only one who has given a rating thus far, does it show 93.5%????
