~~~It seems we all pursue her but never really know how to deal with her when our moment comes.~~~



Elusive one…She

Who sits in her castle
Errant knights all below
Empty armor strewed about
Moat filled with the corpses of those who have tried before me

Possessive one…She

For whom warriors battle
Few of which ever catch her glance
Capturing men’s souls gently
Enticing them with all that is lovely

Intrusive one…She

Who tames the birds of prey
Cages the beasts of the field

Countless fools throw poetry like lances at one another
Their folly bringing laughter to her lips
Reaching up to her from the banks of this moat
Struggling not to slip into the putrid waters below
Not to float with the other corpses
Who dared to love the elusive one

Closing my eyes…Me

Straining with my ears to hear her voice
To hear my name as she beckons me to come
To dine with her, drink with her, dance with her
To stay with her till morning light

Holding her lies…Me

Called out to defend my night with the princess
Anxious knights clamor below me
The shrieking of the falcons above me
Challenging me for a moment alone with the elusive one

This symbolistical composition is a combination of impressionism
and surrealism painted with the "brushwords" of an Artist-Poet that
knows how to choreograph the quills' dance to apply the lexicon that
depicts his visions.

"Success" mixed the images from medieval times to today´s psycho-social illusions, and entwined a positive message:"DARE TO BE GREATER"; and its closing lines polished the whole picture, giving
THE AMERICAN FINE LETTERS, this unique masterpiece for the beauty
and proudness of THE MAJOR ART.

Thank You, Poet, for enriching the historical pages of Poetry.

Healthy Long Creative Life through a Blissful Living, Poet.

In gratitude and reverent admiration,

Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Old saying goes with this: as for the "elusive ones" their motto is "Misery loves company." Ain't the human mind amazin'?

Ever the challenge of the hard to get... perhaps the good knight might look for a little less game playing, eh? ;-)
