~ Camelia In Ivory Shadows ~

Updated on October 31, 2013

" Camelia Azelia "


I


‘Pon Celtic moors of floral showers, in midnight days of sunset hours, where’st pearly clouds splashed liquid quartz, ‘midst heav’ns cyaned, timeless thoughts, lived turquoise moons and lover’s swoons in frosted lace ‘neath winsome face.

Thy beauty’s hammer did’st cull the witches to shame them in their field of fitches, with piercing eyes of Sherwood green that fired them with their silent streams;


II


As daybreak ventured to break the back of night…..


…..I saw chances of tailored streamers, which dared to shine like heaven’s golden lantern, deliberately tumbling custard fingers of pendulous daze, which cradled nervous love, encased by gentle gestures of glorious blaze; buttered ripples mirrored resplendent tapers of intimate echo, amid locks which guarded thy silken lake on quiet shores of island breeze, that murmured treacled whispers of hidden nothings which sighed of you, in swearings of forevermore…..

      Hi Jamie,

      That is very munificent of you, so thank you. Coincidental you should mention that, as I was contemplating compiling a book to put before a professional editorial panel of publishing editors to get it up and running.

      Sending good vibes to you and your loved ones this evening and trust you'll enjoy a pleasant weekend.

      All The Best,

      You have my sincere gratitude Anna; the amazing Jackie certainly gave you a chunky heads-up with her Hug for you! - isn't she marvellous?

      Have a handsome weekend,

      Hi Ann,

      I addressed your name ' Anna ', instead of ' Ann ' - I guess I must have typed out your name but didn't put the brakes on in time lol! That's good, and I think every woman deserves that level of attention by her beloved. Thanks for dropping by to leave your thoughts.

      Enjoy a pleasant weekend, and hope the weather isn't too bad for you down there.

      The two different style of writing and subject matter were diverse but joined seamlessly in your poem.

      The Archaic language and metaphors in the first stanza were absolutely beautiful. Whilst the second stanza used more current language and to me read with a very different focus, although just as skillfully penned.

      Love the comment about 'looking at the same woman a hundred different ways'! Ann

      Hi Anna,

      Good to have you drop by, and glad that you liked the verse so thank you for your generosity. Perhaps looking at the same woman a hundred different ways is better than looking at a hundred different women. :)

      Enjoy a marvellous evening.

      Warm Regards,

      Once again great well written poetry.

      The picture is beautiful.

      Is this a girl you know, was this picture taken for this poem or is it just a picture from the net.

      Very nice

      Hi there Kim,

      Thank you for such a wonderful verse you have left here today, which was pleasant to read, and hope that you have a fabulous day also. I can only offer a quick retort, so here it is :-

      There once was a honey named Kim,

      Who could send Hubber's hearts in a spin;

      Hailing from Carolina,

      Could there be a belle finer,

      Loving heart, playing yang to my yin :)

      Have a gud 'un!.

      Best Wishes,

      Hi Dear Faith,

      I'll have to check the calendar to double-check it is actually Hallowe'en, as it always feels like Christmas when you come by :)

      " Camelia In Ivory Shadows " - because next to her incandescent fairness, every flower pales into a shadow......that's a great song you mention there by 'ol Frankie boy.....you've got me thinking now...... thinking of ' (Love Is) The Tender Trap that he performed with Debbie Reynolds - great song.

      Thank you for sharing and your touching generosity which is always special.

      With Kind Regards,

      RQ,

      What beauty you share this Halloween Day

      when spooks and witches come out to play

      Beauty of the angelic kind

      waves her magic wand

      sweeps away the witches

      So once again alas we find

      Beauty in the morn

      splendidly refreshed

      splendidly refined

      Happy Halloween! ; )

      Kim

      Ooh, la, la, c'est magnifique, dearest Romeos! Reminds me of the song of the same name, C'est Magnifique by Frank Sinatra, speaking about love.

      Camelia in whatever is so lovely. The titles you come up with are perfect with your stunningly beautiful poetry.

      Up and more and sharing,

      Hugs and love,

      Faith Reaper
