Gypsy Antidote ~

Gypsy Antidote ~

A Poem by Frieda P
"

_fire burns as an exhale_ élan vital is the vital force or impulse of life

"

There's a gypsy that taunts me,
     haunts me to awakening revival, 
   wandering & aimless in stillness
     heart of crystalline titanium
   spirited garden of lofty lavender,
uneasy dreams, condors and butterflies
    fly amidst poisons within imploding star,
   breasts heave heavily and dream
        in this fire that burns as an exhale
   translucent cobalt blue in its scope,
     far off lands like cotton candy embers
   heard the heat of drums & magical flutes
     photosynthesis of atomic rainbows
        whirling mazes loom overhead
      snowflakes burst to flames,
          restless doves coo urgency
  seasons scheme to proselyte
     foreigners in hasty slow motion,
   authentic sighs took a long naked drag,
  reluctantly see me as a stranger
      the soul nods, subtly concurs, 
          thoughts overcame this paradox
                 pressed to strip toxic exposure,
     desert rose lit upon a dark moon's 
             intoxicating perfume'd desire 
      gleaned the essence as an unveiling
              in the bared fervor of  élan vital

Great song first of all ;)

Ah, cotton candy embers, snowflakes bursting to flames...heaving breasts...you know I love that stuff Mrs.R :) This is such a vivid and vibrant piece, colourful, imaginative, and full of emotion, doled out in equal measures of rawness and subtlety...the whole thing is one long naked drag...this is definitely a favourite...like I said, it's just so deep and evocative...the whole thing has a kaleidoscopic feel to it...anyways I won't go on too much more cuz I want to get this review in quick...I'm still reveling in this one though.....again, this is definitely one of your more vibrant pieces, just full of life and dancing and good things...love it :) xo

The imagery in this is amazing. You really know how to give perspective. The flow of this is just as appealing as well. This is a satisfying poem throughout and never falls off.

you sure do turn a phrase Frieda .. this is so savory .. every little morsel ..
" pressed to strip toxic exposure," .. i particularly a hit nail head of being naked in front of a church audience .. that line and all that comes after is so revealing as it were .. another wonderful write Frieda ..

Gypsy antidote. Like if a Gypsy bites you, you can go get a shot

Ha not exactly Baby....if a gypsy bites you, you're in trouble!
whom ever this gypsy is, you should think of bottling and selling the elixir that she gives you! You could make a killing on the black market
