Jumping Into Erotic Wave


A glass of wine

A conversation

And the moonlight


A touch of thought

A consolation

Past the midnight


A breath of dream

Imagination

The end of light


Was it my Love

Escaping mirrors

That left my sight?


A glass of wine…

A glass of wine…

A glass of wine…


A heart of steel…


He’ll never come

He’ll never come


FORGET THE DREAM.


Conclusion: finish the bottle, go to bed, never write poetry again.

A breath


Let me know as soon as possible
Of your inner world
Make me stop the time
That moves us both
Let me become a breath
Until you become
A prisoner of my arms
So that we won't separate anymore

I'd want
You to be the end
Of my travelling as a great wanderer
And like that
I'd turn into a breath those moments we long for
Yearning for our bodies to come closer

(Chorus)
I want this mutual love to become
A breath
So that it will never die
So that it will keep us warm
Let it become a breath
Until you become
A prisoner of my arms
So that we won't separate anymore

I'd want
You to be the end
Of my travelling as a great wanderer
And like that
I'd turn into a breath those moments we long for
Yearning for our bodies to come closer

And I'd want that
During the dreams when you search for a lover
You'd find me
And like that
I'd turn into a breath the soft melody
That takes us far away from our memories

(Chorus)

When there is one poem, there will be another...


The way the inspiration works


It was never one of my strengths to analyse or to interpret poetry. So I will admit my limitations. What well written poetry will do, however, with me, is make me want to go back and read it again... and if I like that, I will read it yet again.


I seldom reread anything that I do not think is good.


This I have reread and enjoyed each time, because its simplicity hides layers and layers.


I feel inspired to write something, not because I want to better your poem; not because I think I can show off, but because I want to write something that makes me feel as good about the written word, as this does.


Thank you, Svetlana, I like it...A LOT!


And Mike, I think your comment, in poetry form, was lovely as well.


You buggers, I hate you both!!!!

Hi Kallini, I really like this. I love how quickly you paint a picture of emotion. Thank you. Russ

Thank you, Russ. Frankly, this thing (I cannot even call it a poem) was dedicated to my inability to feel the emotion. I could not even get drunk.

Maybe I should try again. Let's wait and see what the poetry veterans would say.

Good night,

I agree with Russ. I didn't see a lack of emotion either. I saw a longing for someone to come and despair that he didn't. But giving up on him did seem to be apathetic.

Short but efective. Nothing better than an small bottle of wine...and you did the same effect with this piece, Thanks for sharing Lola, flor linda.

Sometimes the less said the more weight they carry..a simple touch holds more meaning than fancy words or empty promises..Well done Sevetlana. Filled with true emotion..Emotion is emotion wether felt in joy or in pain..exspressed with the heart is what counts..Beautiful music too.

Kallini, this poem of yours arouses the awful sadness of a woman waiting in vain for the man she loves. The music/video is beautiful, but also in the voice of the singer I hear painful longing. (Unfortunately I don't understand the language, so perhaps it is not longing I hear in the voice?)

BTW, I've found this in the feed and voting it up and awesome.

Cannot follow up after Mckbirbdbks eloquent response.

There was fleeting glimmer of hope that your lover would darkrn your doorstep. It didn't happen, love unrequited, another night of disappointment. Leave the bottle, just dance. Linked, thank you for sharing.

Thank you, Ladies and Gentlemen, for reading my poem. It is only my third and I am pleased that it found readers.

I have to state again and again:

"What is being written is NEVER what is being read."

What you see in my words, that is what it is. FOR YOU. I am not going to explain what I felt, what I thought, what made me write it, let alone, publish, because I think every piece (poetry or prose) must be complete and speak for itself.

Every question that you might have - I would leave it to your imagination and interpretation. There is no wrong or right answer or right or wrong feeling or understanding.

Someone found it "Funny". I did not. But it surprises and upsets me that most readers don't find my work "funny" when I find it funny (judging by evaluation, my "Funny" mark is the lowest).

And now I will try to address individual responses.


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

I would like to add that words used in this poem more often than not carry a different meaning to me, the meaning of associations, quotes that I like, references... Nothing of it can be guessed. What it looks on the surface, let it be.

1) "light" versus "love" & consolation

“Love is not consolation. It is light.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

2) a heart of steel

3) the end of light - reference to the Russian meaning

======================================================

Bus as I said before, take this poem for what it looks like.

The images are easier to look at - I don't interfere with your perception. As long as I don't attach words.

A crying dandelion. A light of dawn? A last tear of a caterpillar before transformation? Yellow, caterpillar. Of course, he will never come, until the caterpillar reaches the end of light (world) and becomes a butterfly.

A glass, a row of glasses, mirrors, reflections, mirror effect, a tunnel, a door at the end and a figure...

a hand holding something dear...

I did not see it as an empty glass. I saw it as a path... A horizon - dim...

Both images are "me" without words. A dandelion is a metaphor in itself. Yellow, transformation, flight,..

Dear readers, thank you again for your feedback.

@SilentReed:

It was not my bus. The way it was rerouted:

- I am getting married.

- Do you love me?

- Of course, I love you.

Comment:

I did not even know that we have parted ways and he is getting married, which is fine.

However, for me the words "of course, I love you" should never be in the same sentence.

"I love you" goes to garbage bin. Would you be surprised that I don't want to say them to anyone but my son?

=====================================================

@leann2800:

You might be right, if he did not come, he was not meant to. I am no longer waiting and crying.

Translation from English to English:

"I no longer create fantasies out of thin air".

I always wanted "love", but did it ever happen to me? Can I make it? What an idiotic expression: to make love.

The current sentiment:

There is NO ONE for me. NOW.

or

I am for NO ONE. NOW.

=====================================================

@lord de cross:

The wine was called "Misterio" from Ar-H-entina (Argentine/meaning Silver) =

"symbols that reveal

THE SILENT WISDOM

of a magnificent ART".

The wisdom is silent, the silence is the truth.

Whether HE does exist or not and whether he will come or not - let it be a mystery.

@ Sunnie Day, Darknlovely3436 and MartieCoetser:

A song? The only two words that I understood when I decided to complement my poem were "something "breathe" - "respiro" and "grand vagabondo" - a vagabond.

However, I tried to look up lyrics and finally I found the translation.

"A breath of thought" - I could not imagine any other song being more suitable for my words.

Yes, it is longing.

Breath and life and inspiration are related words.

As long as I breathe, I live. As long as I live, I love.

"I love" for me is a complete sentence.


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

@yusefblack:

"A heart of steel" is a complicated reference.

I cannot even begin to tell..

Steel is "a melody frozen in metal";

The way steel is born, the way steel is treated,...

If you are curious, you can read my article "Born under the name Kallini), in Russian the word "kalitj" means both to freeze to harden and to heat to the highest possible temperatures to soften.

http://hubpages.com/education/Names-an-Echo-of-Lov...

But in short, "a heart of steel is not a heart of stone".

Even when you think about stone - what kind of stone? Amethyst? Maybe.

=========================================

Dear Mike and Augustine: it was both of you that started the erotic wave - I just jumped in (I will leave out my "night swim" references, because there are some problems with attire).

The "Misterio" bottle of wine is finished. Empty.

The head-ache - gone.

The music stays, please read the lyrics, I am nowhere near that love poetry.

Mike, remember that challenge "daily joy"? One of my answers (among many) was breath/ing. I think it was the final version. I never got around to writing about it - but at least I no longer wonder.

Thank you so much for your support. I don't feel despair if only at my inability to write poetry. And dancing?

I am going for my tango lesson hoping there will be no "construction pieces" flying over my head.

I do remember this challenge. I remember that the question was out of my realm. No attempt was made to climb a peak and survey the landscape in search.

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Mike, there must be you enjoy daily. It cannot be out of your realm. It is your realm = your life.

For example, you seem to spend (a lot of?) time on HP. Seems like you never miss a day. Maybe this is it?

Or reading?

Or daily cup of something?

mckbirdbks 5 years ago from Emerald Wells, Just off the crossroads,Texas

Actually, joy is a complete mystery. And at the moment it is HP or dozens of chores waiting for me. Have a great Saturday.


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Thank you, Mike, and the same to you.

Have a joyful (let's replace "nice, great" with "joyful") week-end and let's see whether the suggestive command works.

It would be a joyful experiment.

My joyful Saturday was spent in a joyful battle with Daniel when I realized how lost he is between two languages.

- What does this word mean?

- I do not know.

- Can you say it in Russian?

- No.

I am exhausted - from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

So, I sent him to his dad, with an assignment - to write down five words per day with definitions and translation and memorize them. He must be able to explain what the word means.

He did not find it joyful at all.

However, I realize how many of us cannot really explain the words we use. The words we use have a great impact on us.

I almost typed "a joyful impact". It would have distorted the message and meaning, but it would be a stumbling point. Because if you hear an unfamiliar word in a place where you EXPECT another - it wakes you up. When you wake up, you start paying attention.

I am going to experiment with words now. However, it only works in a real conversation where the reaction time is shorter. To wake up your companion you must surprise him/her here and there without signalling it before (it is going to be a joke).

Yes, now off to a joyful evening of dancing and joyful cleaning up and I wanted to say "I wish I could have that joyful bath, but I can't". But I can. I am still breathing and there is enough time before I have to get ready.

I am sure you can settle for my definition of joy: breathing.

Did you like the meaning of this song? It is just so beautiful (I must find another word).

Have a joyful moment after moment after moment...

(I am sure you think that I am insane, but I am not). I forget to experience joy. How unwise is that?


mckbirdbks profile image

mckbirdbks 5 years ago from Emerald Wells, Just off the crossroads,Texas

And you are absolutely right it is unwise, where have the last twenty years gone?

Hi Hub Mama. :)

I'm not sure that quite works... Let me try again.

Hi Svetlana.

I like your name too btw. I know you wrote about it but I cannot remember that now. I can tell you what it means to me (might be similar). "Svijetlo"/"svetlo" in Croatian means light. When I see your name, I think "enlightened" or "illuminated" one. So, my brain expects to learn something. It expects some sort of connection, even if it's just through a life experience that you share. I've been right so far... ;)

I read your poem yesterday and laughed. Then I saved it to read it to a friend. He called last night and after I read it, we both laughed. Oddly enough, the lyrics to the song are relevant to my life somewhat too... Maybe one day I will read your poem to you and you will see/hear why we laughed. The point is that I enjoyed it. I could even turn it into a short play... We'll see.

I have noticed the erotic/love wave here on HP. I enjoyed it up until now. I think now I'm beginning to wonder when it will end. But, then again, some poems will spring up to make me laugh instead of think "oh bother, we're still here" then I'll still continue to ride the wave... I guess we can never really get enough of love so I'll continue to write about it too... (The word "hypocrite" is sounding in the back of my head now.)

P.S. Spamming your hubs is becoming habitual. ;)


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Mike, I am glad, you liked my idea.

I forgot to use the language tricks yesterday,..., except for a a few occasions when I wanted to say "BUGGER OFF!"

The interesting thing yesterday was - the first partner asked me "Do you dance Tango?"

It was a Salsa outing - no indication or connection...

"Are you from Argentina?" he kept asking.

I was so surprised. I should have said: "Yes. I am from Argentina".

However...

Mr. Joyous speaks both languages. Badly. I cannot tell you how difficult it is for him - I think at this stage it is more of a predicament than the advantage. Maybe some other time I share what living hell his resistance to education is, but now I am too upset and tired.

Ian wrote a poem - riding the poetic wave - but it is so ... bloody. I included it in my article as a reference as well.

Have a joyful (?) time today. My mom started screaming from the very morning. Daniel FORGOT his poetry folder (because he does not NEED it, who cares about homework?)

But I will keep the word JOY for today for all the wrong places.


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Dear yusefblack:

The words we use - are the same. But what we mean is never the same.

It might be the same language, the same country, the same society, but different age:

a eight year old and 48 year old will have different understanding...

so, it is normal and to be expected.

My father kept saying all his life:

"It is hard to understand another person".

What he meant - it was his SUBTLE way to let know my mother that she does not understand him at all.

She laughed at the phrase for about twenty years ("There is NOTHING to understand" she thought). When I grew up, I pointed out to her that my dad's saying is directed to her, not just "another person".

Only then she admitted that she and my dad never understood each other. NEVER. And they are still married and they have been for 47 long years.

I could not take "NOT UNDERSTANDING". I did not want to end up just like them - I divorced.

Is my heart - heart of steel? It is just a heart, but I like steel, I studied it long enough to basically forget all about it. But I kept the feeling.

I know. Complicated.


mckbirdbks profile image

mckbirdbks 5 years ago from Emerald Wells, Just off the crossroads,Texas

Joyous morning to you. The head of the nail joyous will soon be flattened out. I used ‘Bugger off’ in my comment to Ian’s poem. The bleeding of one’s heart is prevalent in the poetry of love. Ian does know how to string words together. Men are taught that we are warriors, blood, and blood letting, is victory and defeat.

‘You are approached, you are pursued, you are looked upon with shallow eyes.” Argentina, Tango, music, perhaps the men think the stage has been set, and they just need to walk upon the stage, to play their roll.

If you have planted the seeds of curiosity, then he is hooked. He can resist, he can complain, but he cannot escape the imprint that you press upon him. It is natural to rebel, but there is no escaping your influence.

Make the day pleasant, have a conversation. Enjoy the presence of your Mom.

Maja:

You are right about the meaning:

"svet" in Russian means

1) light

2) world.

I wrote about it

http://hubpages.com/education/I-Will-Remain-the-Li...

If you ever want to read it, you are welcome.

=========================================

My poem is open to interpretation,

but I wonder why you laughed?

Erotic waves will never stop. Like the ocean, they will keep advancing and going back, back and forth in the Rumba rhythm.

I have jumped into it even though the poem is not exactly "erotic".

But this poem becomes nothing without what happened yesterday.

So, the day begins...

Will there be new coincidences today?


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Mike:

I am sorry that it takes me forever to respond to my comments but you know that I have to change my priorities.

There is nothing I want more than to write (& dance), but there is the necessity to think about cash.

Having said that...

You are very poetic. Yes, I agree Ian has a gift, but so do you. Those are very different ways of expressing but I like both.

The word "stage" and "applause" were mentioned yesterday - apparently it is my TYPE. Drama Queen.

The "perfect match" that is "A Noble Rebel/Bandit" has no description - but you should not be surprised why Che Guevara appeals to me.

Yesterday, there was a gentleman whom I nicknamed "Che Guevara" because he had sort of long hair and he wore a beret. Being dressed in black...

I don't think about bleeding hearts now. Maybe I have been bleeding for far too long. Now I feel like - who cares? If they want to bleed, let them, it is their choice.

It is not the bleeding that irritates me, it is salivating.

Mike, but it is funny, isn't it? Yes, Che Guevara had such a strong appeal. All those bad yet good or good yet bad boys have the same appeal.

Of course, I like the Noble part more, but I like the courage that "the bandit" (not criminal) takes.

I don't know, I am poeticizing. I have never recognized them (those guys) before. They seem to be more like characters from books. Maybe from Mocking Bird Books with two wedding rings awaiting the happy moment?

What happy moment?

I have not met HIM yet.

Svetlana - dear friend. I haven't forgotten you. I come and read your hubs and all the majestic comments they inspire; and then I feel like I've been on a week-long tango/reading congress and need to soak myself in the tub.

I think I once may have told you about my sister, Ruth, with the kind of intensity I find in you, which sometimes crashed like waves on the beach and sometimes ebbed like the tide from the shore and one never knew which it would be. It's breathtaking to witness but I know that no comment of mine could possibly have any impact or effect, so it is well for me simply to read and ruminate on all of it. The dance is lovely, your illustrations are just right, your words and thoughts are unique. You know you're good. I second that! Otherwise, far be it from me to argue with your own analysis- you know YOU!

Ruth's 91st birthday was Oct. 25th. I've put yours on my Scorpio page and wish you all your heart's desires, but feel sure that is unlikely, since there is so much stirring in it. So I wish for you a lovely day with your beloved Daniel and a night of dancing with a great dancer - and why don't you buy yourself some of those tanGO shoes?

Hugs and love.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

Mike- no, not the beret. It's a classic style with only the barest association with Che. Now the ammo belt AND the beret would be unmistakably Che. Keep the fatigues for puttering in the garden - never with the beret on, though. The belt must go. Pair the beret with sleek toreador pants and an artist's smock. Mix up your own look. You'll be devastatingly irresistible - even more so.

Dear Nellieanna and Mike:

I have read your conversation, but I was in no condition to come back to HubPages. I still don't know what to say.

"I know that no comment of mine could possibly have any impact or effect." - Nellieanna, it is not true at all.

Of course, everything you say has an impact and an effect. I know that you come when you are ready, it cannot be rushed... I accept everyone as he or she is. That much I learned by now.

Mike would not believe me either, but sometimes, one phrase out of the whole e-mail that he writes would be so illuminating that I think "Yes. That is exactly it."

Yes, guys, don't worry about Che - he will come in his own time. Cannot be rushed either.

Nellieanna - it was such a sweet thought about shoes - thank you - I can manage in mine for some time - I have to stop this tango marathon...

This amazingly amazing picture (the one that I used for my new profile image) -

by looking at this picture even I cannot tell that I was dead tired, my feet were killing me and I could not move any more.

The only reason I know what day it was - it is the dress - it was the end of the marathon. Or so I thought.

On Monday I thought I would not go dance for a week at least, on Tuesday I was dancing again. So another five days straight.

I think those things can only happen once in life. On the other hand, this expression "Wherever you go, there you are" is so true. I wanted tango, tango I got.

Thank you, Mike. No, you are not late - I am a Halloween girl. But I got so tired of this continuous "it's my birthday" celebration that I have no energy left.

I close my eyes and I see nothing. I am overloaded.

I just sit, relax, listen to the heart-breaking music A. sent me...

Those erotic waves turned into the ocean of love...

It will take me awhile to get back to be able to express myself in words. I was so tired that I was retreating to speaking Russian, English was too much for me... If it did not happen to me, I would not have believed it.

It = too many things that seemed improbable, impossible only ten days ago.

Thank you again. Now I have to survive Halloween.

I don't think Mr. Happy knew about Che. Maybe he did. Still, I was surprised. To receive a song from him and Che Guevara, I actually like it the way it sounds and I like the clip. The only problem, I have to translate the lyrics. I am afraid, it might ruin the effect.

Mr. Happy 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

Greetings Kallini,

I do not believe in coincidences. I am glad you liked the song I sent you about Che. I didn't know about your conversation here.

On a more personal note, I think we understand each other because your strongest element is water and that is my second-strongest element. When water guides someone, that person feels the world-around; words are not always necessary and it is always nice to leave words-out - there's less misunderstandings (in my opinion).

I love your poem! May your wishes come true. Cheers!

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Well, Mike, Mr. Happy did not know.

I found the lyrics - side-by-side translation:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hasta_Siempre,_Comand...

It is a beautiful song. Of course, I love the idea of liberation, freedom, fighting for what is dear, same goes for many people. The romantica of guerrilliero heroico.

I love images of heroes.

But I have never heard this song - it is beautiful. I doubt that I actually be a person who will change the world. But I can dream.


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada Author

Mr. Happy, thank you again for the song. It could not have been any better.

There was a question long time ago - Augustine asked me - "so, for your birthday, amphetamines or flowers?"

And I said: "A nice song on FB will do."

I actually wanted to write a hub about it, but I never got around to do it. (The story of my life).

So, it was not a coincidence and I agree with you, I don't believe in coincidences anymore.

If I feel the connection, there is one - the fewer words are required the better it is.

(How is that for a writer? Say less.)

Hello and I think you change the world of everyone who meets you. A Halloween/Birthday coincidence. Did Daniel go out trick or treating?

Maybe, Mike. It is so nice of you to say. But I think it applies to everyone.

Yes, we did go out - one woman asked me whether it was my real hair or a wig.

- It's real.

- No, you are lying.

- Well, it is my birthday, I am allowed.

- You look like Lady Gaga.

- ??? Well, I will take it as a compliment.

- I actually like her.

Daniel loved it: "Lady Gaga, Lady Gaga..."

You can see the pictures on my FB wall.

Daniel was very sweet - he knows that of all things that he collects I only eat "coffee crisps" so he was trying to collect them when given a choice. He is such a nice boy.

So, yes, Halloween. I had no expectations to be disappointed, I received the gift of my life, the gift of tango, the gift of love, there is a ring (from 42 marriage proposals - I am serious, it had to happen today, speaking of coincidences) and I got Che as music.

I have friends, music, dance, a child, and a dream, a rind and 42 men. All is missing is cash.

Maybe I have to write something like "Drowning in Money"?

Hello – We may disagree on this one. Anyone that interacts with you is going to remember you for a long time. That, young lady, does not hold true for everyone. It is just not so. There are many of us who are invisible.

You have had time to do some recuperating now. Are you starting to feel better, less physically exhausted? I hope so. You were swept up in a rapture of music and dance, and did you say love?

I visited the Facebook wall. Your little trick or treater sure looked happy. It is such a fun time for the kids when done right.

‘Coffee crisp’s’ for Mom, that is very sweet. So, he sometimes (ok always) struggles with the two languages, and not reading but he is a man with a wonderful heart.

The Che music was so timely. Of course, you have spoken of the mystic of Che before.

Cash – oh, that. I await the hub “Drowning in Money” or “Sea Change”

Sorry for my late response, I figured you were sleeping.

Mike, thank you.

But you know me, I truly believe that we all make a difference whether we realize that or not. You made a difference for me.

Yes, I was told that I am so amazingly amazing...

"Where did you come from? A new dancer..."

While I was swept in tango waves, my friend Mr. Happy was living in a tent downtown Toronto as a part of "Occupy Toronto" movement. I was shocked. Not that he would do such a thing - it fit his profile, but I did not know anything about what was happening in the city.

Well, speaking of Che...

You know, I have a book "They have changed the world" - 200 icons. I actually did not read it - but sometimes I open it and read about this or that person.

One of them was Martha Graham - I only learned about her from that book. Che Guevara and Evita Peron are there, too. But I only read about them yesterday.

It all comes together like little pieces of the puzzle. I think Che Guevara compared himself to Don Quixote...

"The Coffee Crisps" - I have forgotten about them, but Daniel remembered. I was touched.

Yes, yesterday was a difficult day, but today my head is clearer. I promised myself not to write - because I have to do other things...

however, yesterday the last thing that I did before going to bed - I opened my "TL goes to Italy" part 4 and I thought "I have to finish". There are drafts and I need to put pieces together.

And then I wanted to write about those 9 or 10 days of tango. (Should I really?) But I don't want to forget.

And with money? I am so terrible. Money do not inspire me. That is why I have none.

Love? The way I experience love is inexplicable & unexplainable. I have been told that I have an amazing heart - we were dancing to one of the Tango Nuevo songs and felt "This is love". It is the connection we had - we were almost like one - the ultimate dancing experience -

It is the feeling, the music, the dance. Maybe because it is directed outwards. Love is not a need, not a need to be loved back. Love is love.

I only know Mr. Happy from the upbeat comments left on your Hubs. That he is part of Occupy Wall Street is so encouraging. People are angry, we have been duped, lied to and are all going to suffer economically from the madness that has swept the political class in the countries of the Western World.

I know that I do not get a Vote on your Hub choices, but TL in Italy 4 or ‘Swept Away in Tango’, I vote for Tango. I vote for Tango, because it is you, it is your history, it is your story. Sitting in a café in Rome, watch the beautiful people can wait.

The problem with being nonchalant in regards to money, is that there is always a need for money. Not just for today, but the next forty-five years.

I would love to discuss love. However, my knowledge is slim, resources light, memory faded.

Have a most joyous evening.

Yes, Mike, Mr. Happy is quite a character. I really like him a lot and I am so glad I have met him. It was such a special day.

What to write - of course, you can suggest and influence my choices. I was going for Part 4 because it was written 80%, but there is a piece on tango - it is an impression only, a glimpse and it is unlikely that I will be able to produce something really polished soon.

Maybe I don't have to polish it - just let it go the way it is.

This "Jumping into the erotic wave" - I did not expect such a reaction to it.

Well, I see what I can do.

I like your style of poetry, its bright & radiant simple at times as well as complex.

This is an awesome display of poetic expression especially with the musical video you shared, loving the mood here. Awesome stuff! Voted up.

Thank you, Cloud Explorer. Only today I read that poetry has a therapeutic effect on those who read it and memorize it - maybe I should start a trend. A short poem per day - write, read, memorize. Enjoy.

Thank you, empire mike, for your comment. This is very unexpected - I realize how overwhelming it can be for you to join HubPages and have so many writers commenting on your work.

I am most certainly touched.
