Inamimate objects can be powerfully symbolic...

it’s not that you are fickle
but you flit
like a butterfly
into my home
you make my heart flutter
you fly into my soul
like a cherub
i feel your invisible wings
stirring the whole of me
and suddenly
you leave
your brief presence lingers
in your sweet scent
the lingering sound
of your angelic voice
silken touch
ivory skin
cerise lips
emerald eyes
silky hair
your going
leaves me light-headed
and aching inside
fleetingly lost
relief flows over me
when i see
on the floor
by the door
once more
you’ve left behind promises
in your pretty pink pantoufles

*French word for "slippers"

I always love your work, my friend. Your writing is so colorful and meaty with emotion, from the heartfelt detente through the inevitable dénoument. This piece really moved me and reminded me of my own poem "Catfish." Hope you are enjoying a joyous season and keeping warm.

Regis, I like those house slippers.

The Chinese slip into them when they get home, but back home we wandered over the house in our outdoor shoes, even big mucky boots ... we know better now!

May there always be a lady's pantoufles by your door!

Ahh Regis, this is such a sweet poem "flittering and fluttering" like the teasing of the buterfly who never quite promises to return. Just what I needed on this cold, damp evening.

Love, Micki
Reviewed by Jeffenise Robertson 12/2/2010
Regis this is so sweet. I love how you used pantoufles to share with us how insignificant objects can mean so much. We would never know how significant they are unless we're told, and you said it well.

Wonderful, and it creates such a blessed moment with that glance at the slippers. I love good moments like that.

Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo 11/26/2010
You poem has a nice smooth flow and then toward the end it becomes slightly catchy. That does not ruin the poem's flow as I would have thought, but actually gives it an extra punch; I mean that in a good way. :)

Very nicely written. Has much emotion and great descriptive, vivid imagery throughout. I really enjoyed it!

I was going to ask you why you have a picture of a pair of slippers to go along with the poem but then I noticed on the bottom of the page you let readers know that pantoufles is a French word for slippers, so then it made sense.

Also, you are right on the money when you say "Inamimate objects can be powerfully symbolic..."

Now I am not sure if it is a typo or not but I want to point it out:
"you fly into my self" --> I would think it should say - you fly into myself

Thanks for sharing and please keep on writing.
