Damn!

Arms akimbo, pout solid on my mask,
a solitude of righteous innocence
I’m dudgeoned but you laughed which
riled me no end and then you kissed me,
damn, did you notice you made me smile?

Beautiful Hurt

Stocking fire,
my hands were burned,
you smiled
afterwards,
meanwhile, the agony
was beautiful hurt.

Nature’s Gift

dVerse Poets – Haibun Monday – That Picnic

A short drive to Walyunga for early spring to see white water and take a trail walk. Backpacks filled with thermos, lunch, and picnic blanket. We find a quiet space and sit to wonder at the water flowing past and spring’s evidence everywhere.

Time was nature’s gift
inhibitions flew away,
heron were calling

Spent – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Air – RDP Saturday

Nunc scio quid sit amor  Now I know what love is.

 

Spent

The moment needed no words
we conversed in other ways
till we made our point
and then we lay exhausted, spent
the air sucked right out of us
in breathless, telegraphic counterpoint.

Kiss

Today I spoke to you in
a language so intense,
with more love than latin,
and most certainly french,
a language that feels,
as tongues speak of ecstasy,
and lips are guided by heart,
a veritable feast on
which to gorge,
yet never sated.

Speak From Me – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Create – Word of the Daypainting-911804__480.jpg

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”  Émile Zola

 

Speak From Me

The inner dualities,
centuries old,
rage within,
threatening emptiness, nakedness,
sadness,
if I pick up my brush or my pen,
or maybe my spade,
my mind asks that striving question,
will it be profound?
Which is really a question of
will it matter?
Yet a more timid urge,
the one that seems less in the world,
at least, until the work is done,
is when the heart says,
speak from me.
There, at my very centre,
arises the profound,
my profound,
in all its authentic glory.

Desire – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Goal – Word of the Day

Desire

The ageless dance,
an inner landscape of desire
so difficult to articulate,
but which can be spoken by other means,
a language so sensual the soul sings,
and if enunciated carefully,
whole worlds become transparent,
as we discovered,
while the daisies smiled over us.

Holiday Girth – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Corpulent – RDP Thursday

Holiday Girth

It just appeared one day,
just like that!
I was girt with holiday girth,
all those puddings, cakes and tarts,
another chocolate?
Oh, go on. you only live once!
Turkey, chicken, pork with trimmings,
the table sagging with weight,
just like my gut.
