Author's Note

Sheila Kline
Spell of Island Love

Bonfire flickers, erasing shadows from midnight raven skies.
Arias are carried in winds sent swirling by lover's sighs.
Gentle embraces lock hands tighter with rays of sunshine smiles,
As island love beckons him to swim in sea an extra mile.

Frothy waves frolic and splash on distant of exotic shores,
Striking rocks where tales are spun as part of ancient mermaid lore.
Each splash carries closer yet a message of love ever true.
Glitter of sun, sparkle of moon, bathes journey in mystic hue.

Sea gulls bathe in a mist of joy as they soar ever higher,
Carrying notes of love to be placed in grottos of desire.
Perchance one may travel on their wings across vast seas afar,
Tucked safely in soft feathers, aglow from light of Heaven's stars.

Pleas of parted lovers are heard by Neptune of salty brine,
He captures each sigh of longings of "Darling, ever be mine"
He answers their pleas found riding on Maritime’s azure waves,
And joins the lover's wishes as true love he pledges to save.

Dear Heart now dreams as one with Fair Maiden once so far away,
And basks in glow of Island Love every magical day.
Tall palm trees sway as birds sing lyrics composed just for the two,
As sirens from deep call out, "Island's spell shall ever hold you!"

Sheila,
Ms. Lady of Love

Very captivating. This poem almost seems as if it were originally for a fairytale or fantasy about love over seas. It is very beautiful. I envy your amazing talent. Well done.

Hmm, I wonder if women need love more than men? Are women the keepers of love? Is love a sort of mortar that binds people together? Is it more in the urge of women than men to be so bound? Nature demands that woman attract and keep, but that we men put ourselves around as much as we can. Yet a man on his own after a certain age does not prosper, often falling into bad ways and dying early. But is that just Nature clearing him out of the way once his usefulness is done, clearing the path of younger more vigourous specimens. Perhaps the most successful male is the one who will not be caught, who denies himself at every turn, thus marking himself out as cleverer than his rivals and so making himself the more desireable. The rare and unobtainable always commands a premium over that which is easily had. Such a male can take his pick of his suitors. Never give love to win love. Infuriate. Never surrender. Be rare. Never become dependent on another. That way you will enslave them instead of yourself. But it is better not to need to enslave another as that puts you totally beyond their power. Love is power in another guise. And not to crave power is the most powerful position to be in. Perhaps to refuse love is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Just pondering.

Dear Sheila,

Mystical and floating on an island breeze. This has a gentle and so romantic tone and sway. A very delicate and loving write, Sheila. Very nice.

Best regards,

Rick

Oh, after a very cold December and early January this is just what was needed! Such a tenderness and warmth that radiates from your words. The sensual, beautiful love is so vivid and alive! Excellent write!
