Write On Love

A Poem by Crowley

For Someone Special


Write on Love


Don’t let me tell you what to write

On the hill, beneath your sweetheart tree

The night blooming freesias open and close on your command

The wind blows sweet words to flow from your pen….smoothly


It’s your heart that flows red, then bright orange, pumping

As it bleeds a picture of what you might become

The breeze, just a kiss of dandelion fuzz

Tickles your lip and lets you know that everything will be alright


Don’t let me tell you what to write

On the hill, that overlooks your love and longing

A rolling green field giving way to sometimes azure waters

Lapping at the shore that seems the same, but changes….sweetly


It’s your eyes that allow a man to enter your thoughts

And feel the excitement of the day unbridled, senses firing keenly

Wringing hands made for grasping, supporting, stroking

Looking into a soul that supports an emotional payload


Don’t let me tell you what to write

On the hill, gazing into the pool where every woman finds her inspiration

Pulling phrases like fishes, slick and shiny, deadpan eyes

Releasing inhibition, believing in the turn of a phrase….softly


It’s your words love, deep and crucial….tender

It’s your words love, surpassing expectation

It’s your word love, fire and brimstone….exhilarating

It’s your words love, they mean the world

I try to encourage writers when I review, but this poem shows me a loving tenderness & acceptance & encouragement that I've never done becuz I never knew it could be done so sweetly! I think it's more important to be tuned into the magic that a writer is trying to share, more than seeing the mechanics of conveying a message. Practice can improve the mechanics, but it takes a fulsome wind of encouragement to harken that magic essence that can infuse a person's words (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A special poem for a special lady, no doubt, unless … nah! 😏

Dear Crowley,
Being such a simple bard, much of poetic abstract is lost on me; yet, in this rather ambiguous piece I think a spark of understanding may have penetrated my thick skull … we'll see.
First-off, I particularly enjoy that you've composed this in the form of Poetic Prose Quatrains, and appreciate that each verse contains its own story, mood, feeling, emotion, thought, essence, etc; still, adhering to your title's topic (not an altogether easy task in a long piece), lending an appealing sense of pride, coherence, conscious thought, and quality to your work.
When one desires to inspire in another that depth of feeling, thought, creativity, and emotion which is perceived in them as uniquely theirs, to encourage them without encroaching on their individuality, or isolating them by virtue of their sensitivities … it can, indeed, require great skill in proceeding with kid gloves to succeed in that aim.
I believe you've done a splendid job of it, and I most humbly bow to your knack for utilizing a caring and gently empathetic tact in that endeavor.
I did wonder, in your penultimate line, if you intentionally meant "word"? Gotta find something to critique … LOL!

KUDOS to you, my keen-minded friend, not only in your methodology in giving, but in your skill as a fine writer of poetry … I feel inspired, myself!

A beautiful work, done with much thought and consideration … thank you for the inside smile.
Such a wondrous lady she must, indeed, be! ⁓ Richard 🍃

Your writing persona is so multifaceted...It's your eyes that allow a man to enter your thoughts (Woman thought) emotional payload (man phrasing) - it's wrapped all together is this perfect package.

I did like the poem. You led the reader to strong and positive ending and thoughts. Us, writers need to write what we feel and think. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

you have give love so much meaning here that love is not even cover what is felt in between these loving lines
this was beautiful

I love the line the eyes allow a man to enter your thoughts...so beautiful.

what I like best is the kind of menacing here. The more you repeat, "Don't let me tell you what to write," it translates into, "really write what I say." clever, clever, Rowley!
