I believe Jerry Bolton's criticism was highly constructive, so I gladly edited the poem... and I feel that it has improved a lot! Thank you, Jerry!

Movements (not for static visions)


Once more, or maybe always, wandering -
this caste of grapes and waves, of glows
and wind, between dream and poems
that stretch beyond sight;

Yes, those poems; sometimes winged,
and then, sometimes, lying down and
trickling ambiguities onto beds of crystal –
somewhere, between a river and silk;

Or my breasts, denuded of your hand
that dresses longings, somewhere upon
misty horizons cut in blue of eyes
and silences with the colour of my skin.


I’m not actually going away, for I couldn’t
depart from where I haven’t arrived yet -
but I wander, with hips already at a gallop
and lips in bloom for honey yet to be made –

Leaving foam and twirls of sea on the back
of horses and curved lines of distant shores
and distant poems;


Yes, those poems; beyond dunes
and within gardens, or orchards,
where you will harvest me, later -  

Ripe, and still, or maybe always, wandering
with poems of you and of that caste, between
dream and glow, that wanders in the wind
and in your departure to my arrival –

Wet, warm, and smelling of grass,
of that grass of the meadows where
the gallop lies down with the sun;


Yes; and then, maybe unfathomable, we’ll simply
move on, untied like dream and boundless like time
or the immaculate voluptuousness of making love
and breathing –

And caring less than the wind or the grapes
ripening if these movements wander beyond
static visions…

"...of that grass of the meadows where

the gallop lies down with the sun;" I love these lines.

Etheric energy meets manifestation in the physical. "Prana" comes to mind. This feels, to me, more like a description of the mystical than the "romantic." It feels like a Sufi Mystic might have been describing Union. No matter the origin, the effect is to be enjoyed sensually and when read aloud the beauty of your words soars.

such a very dynamic poem - i feel the ebb and flow, i, too, love the way you have with 'weaving.' well done. -- Jeff
Reviewed by richard cederberg 9/22/2008
It is rare to get a criticism that actually improves us.
I respect that.

the beauty of your poetic (poetic/prose) tapestries, dear Alexandra, is not (to me) necessarily always the finished product, but the way that you deftly, and passionately, and skillfully, weave the threads that make it a finished product.

certainly in this process is a gift and a mystery you possess that few exhibit.

This is difficult, and subjective, (bear with me) - but what you do is not always necessarily read and intellectualized by me, but rather it is read and broods in the aether of my sensory modality like a painting, or something that is tasted or smelled or felt. In other words, your work always lingers as the inhalation of fresh flowers and ocean breezes in this reader.

I pray that all is well ...

This is so burgeoning, Alexandra; so ripe and fit to burst! Just right for the mood of the seasons now... just pregnant with love and fulness. I like the form you choose - both distinctive between phases and yet with an ongoing lilt and shift. Some oozing lines that melt me, especially:

but I wander, with hips already at a gallop
and lips in bloom for honey yet to be made –

buzz, buzz... this will certainly rekindle the birds and the bees! :)) xx

This was beautifully-written and well-presented!!! Great job indeed!!!

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 9/21/2008
Except for the word "perchance," which I felt did not belong in this poem, because of its history of olde English, as opposed to the very, very newest and delicious prose of this one, the poem was meat for the readers table . . . I loved your way with phrases, Alexandria, such as . . . "but I wander, with hips already at a gallop / and lips in bloom for honey yet to be made –" and "of that grass of the meadows where / the gallop lies down with the sun;" . . . You are so far above me and countless others in your presentation, and yes, your brilliance, I hate to criticize, but to be honest with myself I have to . . . "perchance?" . . . It fits not . . .

Well, Alexandra, you kept me captivated with your words. Nicely done, my dear friend, yes very well written.
Peace, love, and light,

Another imaginative and well presented write from the mistress of prose. Enjoyed.
