APHRODITE


Such looseness in me Ė
joints all toss and sway;
light-flecked curves
all spillages of motion:

a nibbling slick clinging to
the dangling hem of shoreline
like a frothy, wayward thread.

My turbulence shepherds
the lost like sheep through
straits beyond all fathoming;

I tug at their sleeve like a
motherless child, echo
through their nautilus ear
steering them head to wind.

In mindís uncharted waters,
Iím a dove-tide low but turning
on a winterís afternoon,
high-surf on midsummerís eve.

A silvered dolphin passage,
a mirrored swan in flight.

So pleasant to read and rich with literary and/or visual references, this piece also shows your imagination. Sensuous and feminine.

Bravo! . . . er . . . Brava! Skimming the sea of beautiful wordplay this poem saturated this reader's very soul. So much beauty, so much depth, especially depth, the poem commands rapt attention, not one to skim over and toss out platitudes by rote, nay, a thousand times nay, only the freshest and loving comments does this work deserve, and I feel I fall far shot of those words . . . Magnificent.

Have you noticed out of the six comments five of them have been males?

Okies. The poetry is hypnotically nautical.
It captures looking out to the sea, or sailing the isles. (To me )When the sea is Mirror silent. And such thoughts permeate the soul.
The Great British Isles saline is in all the indigenous peoples of these 1000's of isles. Not only do we rule the seas, but the seas rule us.
A mesmerising poem.

Kate, her(Aphrodite) embrace has imbued your poetic ambitions with a Monet palette -- warm, friendly, subtly marking, suggesting a path through your reader's imagination -- one I'll treasure long is this creative piece -- my thanks for sharing and permitting me the pleasure of an artist's rendering -- may this day bring you joy, peace and love my dear friend -- Jon Michael
