from what I understand it to be ...

His words revealing,
And eloquently expressed,
Left the maiden hushed

Venturing them true ;
She imagined something more
Than poetic mos

Shunning all notions
(Always knowing corrupted
A desperate soul)

She opened her heart
And became vulnerable
To another’s guiles

Demurely she smiled
As he intrigued her with words,
Pretending them true ,
She imagined orange blossoms
And a fragrance delighting

and I learned that love's opposite is not hatred, it is gray. How I wish they had been orange blossoms, but yet, the imagined beauty of that scent is enough to sustain for a moment; at least until the elegance of words are not enough to stave off starvation.

Oh those silver tongued poets! A stunning poem Richard, I enjoy your work so much.

I like the sense of innocence, wisely crafted by word choices. I could see her skin flush. Sweet, with a legendary feel to their tale. Well done, Richard!

Ah yes, I remember those days well ... from what I understand them to have been. :-) ~leslie

So sweetly scent, the air. She planted a navel. Before it bloomed, it froze. Guess she will have to have sherbet and that one wooing her.

Hi Richard, yes indeed these words ring true for far too many...
As he intrigued her with words,
Pretending them true,

Sadly it's becomming more & more difficult to decipher who is telling the truth...
Excellent write!
Reviewed by Douglas Bentley
Sometimes the eyes deceive.
Then sometimes the truth isn't even there to believe.
One takes the point
Few are blessed
Followed jealously by all the rest.
The bar raised - - - to be your best.

richard, an exceedingly good bit of poetry.

"...intrigued her with words..." and from the cocoon it will be coming a orange blossom perfume...

...and delirium sets in......
this one hits a little too close. how words revolved like whole wor{L}ds around the heart...forming little microcosms of symbiotic beauty. a memory of his voice here; a hush of his touch there; and everywhere in between are 'what ifs'. .. . and 'remember whens'. . .and i am going to prattle on forever if dun shush now.
suffice to say, orange blossoms-----although in my case, it would smell like rain and strange edible flowers [inside thing]. .. . .the blossoms bloom forever where i live.....
they bloom always.
and they smell somehow divine.. .. . .despite time or space.
youre such a conjurer of humanity.
frailties and fragilities and far away gasps.
i like the succinct more immediate grab of this too.

"If thou wilt know the invisible, open wide thine eyes on the visible." There are those who would fashion for us oppressive political leviathans, inhuman psychopathic corporations, and repressive religions, to ensure that the Spirit that is essential to our existence is driven forth into the wilderness never to return. With that Great Spirit gone, lying in its unmarked grave, humans fall cringing at the mercy of the terror-wolves, the daylight vampires, and phantoms of death who crave our ruin. Great poetry Richard.
Reviewed by John Flanagan
Seduction of the subtlest kind, the persuasive nature of words and as much for what they mean as how they are read or we want to read them...the longing to be loved takes many forms.
Elegant writing, Richard.

How many have imagined orange blossoms and wound up with green persimmons? To listen to these wonderful words from a gentleman or cad the lady usually only hears what her heart seeks to hear. And, like the great line from the movie, "Lonesome Dove," 'Who wouldn't tell a lie to get a poke?' . . . from what I understand it to be ...
