It begins with a phrase that stirs the mind
eyes twinkle, mischief lingers on smiles
first strings of curiosity
When intrigue bewitches hearts
Instinct blindfolds reason
And puppeteers play
Till you’ve fallen
feed thy soul with caution For desire, it yearns
Free my bonds to your fear Connect us with Love
while in hearts
Dams strung to control
For minds and hearts are tamed
but souls are meant to be free
they tag and groan against all strings
for they know what puppet love becomes…
– but a trickle of Waterfalls within
drifters out at sea
one afloat, other drowning
saving you, saves me
Hope you enjoy this. Looking forward to your thoughts.
I was really craving the ascending/descending syllables of an etheree(the two poems in bold). I wrote them with Reena’s #RXC and Sadje’s #whatdoyousee prompts in mind. The two verses in between the etheree are a poetry form called the lanturne, for Colleen’s #tankatuesday. Lastly, is an encore senryu for #Eugisweekly.
Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
