Autumn again it is. October once more. And before it deepened into the moist browns of November, I remembered I wanted to tell you how much I like this. The senses can be hard to capture so that they tear into reading. You encircle them with your pride of lions, the lioness leading, and feverishly attack until the flesh of it is bared open for our enjoyment. Thanks for the ravaging.

Scent is a powerful thing..especially to lovers...this work is very well done. It is sensual but has a dark undercurrent.

When An Eagle Flies Out To Meet You Carrying A Seashell (Poetry) - 7/15/2002 9:38:55 AM
Every shell is a syllable, a womb.
this frail scalloped edge was a thought once.
That line is very exciting to see, as I've reflected on same, but never seen it written or heard such spoken.
Now, the following was disturbing, but then I figured you must have been describing an aura, not a physical skin:
your thin blue skin came out.
This atmosphere is almost palpable:
the pink rag rug you wanted, bought the Chinese
I found this to be pregnant:
I've saved these for years
so you'd believe me.

Very rich. The child at the breast, deep stain of Autumn. Half-closed lids. Sleepy, satisfying.
And NIght's Pocket! YUM.

Shoes? Wow. Made me think, NOW THAT's LOVE!
it sure was visceral: i.e. real. A fun, easy read.

Well those scents are revived every so often and some are memorable enough to cherish. but sniffing someones sandals? I suppose that would work if one had a foot fetish. Excellent work...it flowed so beautifully.

Nevermind the talented writing, I love your thinking power. "the way
all things stop when you
pay attention" -- most people wouldn't notice. :)

You've got to love the raw! - Burnt matches and hamburger... I LOVE IT!

Lucky Joseph! You have presented him with the gift of life and if, by rights, this beautiful poem is passed down through the succeeding generations, you will have bestowed upon him a kind of immortality.
It's quite possible, you know!
In any event, thanks for sharing it with me.

A delightful and wiry sample of free verse articulating an aspect of intimacy that will resonate with most lovers. A good example of the KISS princilple.
I enjoyed the read again and again. Thanks for posting it, Melina.

So funny that I ran across this today. I've had this conversation with my s/o he says that he could pick me out in a crowd of 500 by my scent. I love this, thanks. Janet xoxoxoxo

This captures that newborn moment so well! All you left out was that special smell that only newborns have before Johnson&Johnson take over their fragrance!

You touch the mood which is in Us all.
My Marshmallows Were Screaming (Poetry) - 12/11/2001 5:33:48 PM
Outrageously and capriciously contemplative...! I love it...!
Other People Live Here (Poetry) - 12/11/2001 5:27:38 PM
...a pulsatingly luminous tableau...
The Suchness (Poetry) - 12/11/2001 5:15:55 PM
Powerfully descriptive. A wonderful word picture! Brava...!

Fresh expression and style.

I loved the imagery of the planchette and the picture of Lord Krishna -- the lack of anything dramatic happening in the poem matches my own mood at the moment -- I adored it --

I thought I was nuts: I've heard them scream too!

I liked the weaving of your words to remind one of another symbol! Excellent!
