~~~ Enchante' ~~~

Updated on August 22, 2013

~ Enchante' ~


How does one write, without lauding the flowers,

Ashen moon, and her son, betwixt frore midnight hours?

Or pencil a verse, of a debonnaire nurse,

Of affectionate care, commandeering your stare?

Then I’ll wager a prize, that you’ll mention her eyes, and

Her features, so fair, tumbling honey-toast hair.


Now glance up above, at unfathomable love,

Without uttering the stars, limning Saturn and Mars;

Then scribble your words, never referencing birds;

Nor citrus-washed rays, flooding fine Summer days.


Would thou speak of her touch, censor feelings so sweet,

From the top of her head, to the tips of her feet?

Unsee cursive visions; undo expositions;

Drain colours from the bow and then straighten it so?


Unheard scathed remarks, nay unstriking flint sparks,

To unpen fervent lines, yea, forget earnest chimes,

That were ripening you, could you make them untrue,

Just by sketching with soul, wrapped in ethers of blue?

So, next time you ink, on your page, halt and think, of

How blessed that you are, to express who we are...

      You said this really good. Or does it go deeper? Did I miss something?

      Hi wetnosedogs!

      Hope you, and the hounds of the Baskervilles are having a good day today; thank you for your kind remarks, and no, you certainly didn't miss anything, though it works on a few levels.

      Enjoy a marvelous evening;

      Hi Kathryn!

      Really thoughtful of you to say so.

      It's none of my business, but don't want to ignore you, though I kind of get the vibes, through the grapevine that things could be a little better at the moment. A woman like you deserves a massive break, because you are such a kind person, and I sincerely hope that you have good things come by your way. A lot of folk are going through trials here at the moment, and I've just passed through one recently, so I'll be thinking of you, whatever' s going on. Your latest Hub was marvelous.

      Warm, Sincere Regards,

      R.Q.

      R.Q.,

      Thanks, I really appreciate it. Yes, it seems like so many people are going through hard times in one way or another, so I'm not alone! But I have a feeling that my life will turn around, and I will be better and stronger for what I am going through. And even though it is emotionally draining, I have been through worse.

      I'm glad you like my latest hub. It took a while to put together, but getting it ready was very therapeutic for me. I hope it is helpful to many people.

      Have a wonderful weekend.

      This conveys much humour to me - a little tongue in cheek perhaps? The choice of how we use our words and which ones we choose is indeed vast and we need to choose carefully without cliché. I love it! Off to follow you.
