Bring In The Clown (tears for youth)

Taking it a Stage Further.

With all the recent movement towards love, and sensuality on Hub Pages at the moment I have decided to try my hand at narrative poetry. This little attempt is for all the great writers of sensual poetry that reside here in Hub Land. My pen is guided by your teachings and I strive to be a good student.

Call in the Clown.

Call in the clown; make me laugh, this old girl with the crooked smile and the big nose,

I know my name. It was once whispered on a summer breeze.

I have my memories, of beautiful eyes and skin as pure as silk,

spun from the cotton of the silk worms coat.

Bright, stunning, beautiful, sensual.

Although age is a mirror still in my heart,

My images of life and laughter still sing in my soul.

Laughter and the whispers of love as gentle as the breeze from the butterfly’s wing,

caress my very being and remind me of my beauty that once was.

The yearning in your eyes as I stepped ever so gracefully into your life,

and when I reach forth, the curls at the nape of your neck, remind me of a fresh summer meadow,

I shiver with anticipation, reaching for the strength of your powerful, muscular arms

that take me so gently into another place; into another world of fantasy and lust.

The clouds that I see are just pillows under my head,

as the motion stirs my loins and the tingle of my breast chases my heart beat .

The ripple of muscle from your chest, takes away my serenity as I gaze into those slate blue eyes

that hold my gaze of wonder, and surprise

as gentle as the ripple of the sea over the shore engorges my very being.

the rhythm of two beating hearts enfolds.

I arch my back and yield to the will of your manhood, like the crescent of the moon to become one.

Waves of emotion explode onto the shore and the pure pleasure of sand between my toes

brings me ever closer to your relentless strength,

crashing further into the depths of your whispers

soothing, caring and caressing my mortal world.

You, my friend, my lover, are the only tempestuous being in my saddened world

only you can relieve the pain of getting older,

the gentle touch of your fingertips along the length of my spine,

and the warmth and sweetness of your breath on my face

sends me into a cascading river of impulses and desire,

take me as only you can do.

The touch of your tongue like raindrops trickling between my breasts,

And down to the most sensitive areas of my being.

Bring in the clown, humanise my world for the benefit of my sanity,

and leave me engorged and elated, spiritually and physically in love.

Rosemay, Aaugustin and Martie certainly did start something here. The stirred the loins of Hub land and made us all stand to attention. To love another and still be in love is awesome and least we forget, the words of Augustin and Martie have reminded us in such a stunning way, as did all the followers. x

AA certainly started something here.

This is beautiful Annette. Just because we are aging it doesn't mean we no longer have feelings and desires. And you have expressed this in such a beautiful hot... hot way.

This is TOPS

Only you have the straight forward way of telling it as it is Bill. You are so right. All this jigging around is much fun to dream about, but the saying "many a good tune can be played on a old fiddle" comes to mind lol. Thank you for the support.

Joyce, Gail, Ruby. Good Morning ladies. Thank you so much for leaving me your beautiful comments. Reaching our more mature years life is not just about the cloths ripping show downs any more. But our sensuality and love making finds newer heights that the younger ones seldom do. In this instant, I am glad to have learned throughout my life to be able to share my belief now.

My Dear Sweet Martie, thank you hunnie for the support. You hit the nail on the head with the "clown" perspective. Our writing and emotional journey through life is always a source of entertainment for someone. We pass by but once and influence soi many others on the way. Clowns are usually portrayed as happy people, but what a mask to wear.

Dear Ken, such comments and wisdom from one of my favourite poets on Hub Pages. I am very honoured that you have left me an encouraging comment. You are clearly living on the wrong side of our space hunnie, but you are more than welcome to join us. Maybe we should think of an over 50's club, and let the younger ones realise that because we are ageing, we are not redundant lol

thebluestar 5 years ago from Northern Ireland Author

Augustine and Cardissa, two of the most talented writers of feeling and emotions on Hub Pages. Both of you write from the heart and have a great personality to love and share with those of us truly humbled by your presence.

Augustine, this poem did not finish the way that I wanted it too. I had intended to write in reply to your hub as Martie did. But once I had written this I thought it would stand alone. I am not in the league of all the true poetical giants on Hub Pages, but I want to keep trying, so I am very honoured that you have linked this poem to your hub. Thank you so much for showing me the way. Anthology, mmmm what do you think lol

Darling mar. I am the clown in my life for being so open and unguarded. But I still have the thoughts and passion of all other woman. I wanted to share with everyone that love is for all ages and sensuality has it's place in everyone's heart and not just in mine. Thank you for your beautiful comment and support hunnie. Love ya babes.

Richard, my dear friend. Thank you for your support and lovely comment again today. You are a special friend and I always appreciate your visit. Hugs and kisses for Naylin and you. xx

ShonEjai thank you for stopping by my little space in Hub Land. Your comment sounded just like me 16 months ago and then I was inspired by so many beautiful poets her on Hub Pages; to try my hand at poetry. My first poetic hubs are left to read as a reminder of how our writing can progress with the help of so many others. When you feel comfortable, join us in the journey.

Our bodies may have aged, but our most powerful sexual organ, our brain, is still eighteen and ready to make love.

Well done Annette!

Mercy Me!!! What's happened to us older Ladies on Hubpages? HaHa Perspitation is running down the nape of my neck. I almost got a cramp in my big toe. I want a cigarette and i quit years ago...I turned my AC off when it started to get cool. I just turned it back on, i'm about to invite the clown over for SMALL TALK... Of course you know i'm kidding and having a ball. Net.you wrote a beautiful love scene, one to be proud of!!!

I second Marcoujor's call for an anthology by you, Martie and A.A. Beautiful poem of sensuous love between two mature people who still have so much passion between them. Voted up, awesome and beautiful.

Phewwwww - {I'm wiping hot flushes off my face}. Completely out of words :) I think I must come back later to leave an objective comment.

Lol! You did take it a stage further, hey? Now it feels like playing poker. Who's going to come forward with a 'royal flash'?

I like your perspective on the clown, Annette. Are we not all clowns? Entertaining everyone around us, especially the children and child-like, and who really knows our needs? Not to talk about fulfilling it.

Voted up and upper. Off to have a second read.

Is there something in the air, it's Fall across the pond here in Canada, not Spring when all the bees and bird's start to mate and let their nectar flow and ooze with delight:-) Nothing wrong with some clowning around, I see you and A.A. and Martie have been in heat:-)

Kidding apart all three of you talented scribes have let your quill flow and your passions excite and enthrall our carnal desires as human beings. I loved your flow of words here Annette, you excited the man in me and I felt your genuine sensuality for your man, your youthful desires and pleasures once felt, now shared and wanting more.

Age should not be a barrier and you have proved it here. Dead below the waist? never. As longs as two are in sync, age is just a stepping stone for more pleasures between the two who share the most important ingredient LOVE that gets you both to the point of desires of the flesh and enjoying it. Thank you for this beautiful share, you mastered it well. Brilliantly done. Rated UP and HOT.....LoL

I think you and Martie are playing possum. You both write sensual poetry with such ease. I was mesmerized.

This piece is like an open window in the mind of woman who craves love. The mental and emotional connection must be there before physical intimacy can take place. Sex without love is like hot water without coffee or tea. On another note, I just wanted to tell on your lover. He's stealing my moves...

My Dear Friend Sunnie, Thank you for your lovely encouraging words.I don't feel very comfortable writing poetry, but I enjoyed the narrative style of writing this one. As you so rightly say, because we reach the age of 50, we do not automatically die below the waist. Everyone like to feel passion and love. xx

This poem is a lovely statement of love. The sun may set yet the dancing flare of passion that dwell beneath the covered layers of desire transcend the test of time

Hi bluestar, this really is a beautiful piece of work and a demonstration of how our desires are as defined as they were in our zestful fumbling youth. Beauty comes from within, and this poem optimises it. Well done.


Sunnie Day 5 years ago

Dear Net..I would be the first one..lol This was so beautiful, very sensual. Your wording was masterful how a woman may feel even in her mature years. We still feel, want to be loved and desired. We want the same things that bring a spark, a moment of excitement,and intense desire..We may be older but we are not dead..Lovely in everyway..

Loved it,

Sunnie
