None Like You – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Desire – Word of the Day

 

None Like You

So cool
as you touch my lips,
I love the wet
and the spice of you
a rich perfume
that I can taste,
smooth
unblended nectar
like liquid velvet,
and in all the world
there’s none like you
at all
my jar of whiskey.

Sugar Drunk – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Worth – Word of the Day

Sugar Drunk

That hazy spring afternoon,
as the sun soaked us,
we wandered
in that field of flowers,
as the bees were taking nectar,
sugar drunk,
buzzing so excitedly,
and we laid down,
humming that sacred tune
for all we were worth,
so drunk on loving.

Symphony Of Pulse – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Blood – Word of the Day

“There is no caste in blood.”  Edwin Arnold

Symphony Of Pulse

Of moons
it is merely of colour,
but of attraction it is mystery,
where the symphony of pulse,
a scherzo,
strangely warms and excites,
energising, drawing, urging,
and only when we are spent
does blood finally slow,
and once again
we return to earth.

“We’re going to have to let truth scream louder to our souls than the lies that have infected us.”  Beth Moore

 

Unfounded

What’s not to like?
But you found a
thousand imperfections,
all unfounded and,
located in your unwillingness
to believe that you are
the jewel in the crown of my heart,
of which your greatest gift,
your unconditional love,
is the truest beauty of all.

The Indescribable Point – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Zenith – Word of the Day

Note: In astronomy terms the zenith is a location point directly above you.

“Filled with rapture his soul yearned for freedom, space, vastness.Over him the heavenly dome, full of quiet, shining stars, hung boundlessly … The silence of the earth seemed to merge with the silence of the heavens and the mystery of the earth touched the mystery of the stars.”  Fyodor Dostoevsky

 

The Indescribable Point

We reached for the indescribable point,
having left our anchored ordinary,
entering time without time,
and losing the rails of thought,
yet we knew a knowing,
as our bodies spoke an urgency,
to meet above ourselves,
and fall into luxurious abandon,
washed in desire.

If Only – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Quadrille #72 – dversepoets – Steep

If Only

The rise sounds easy,
but the elevation compounds,
and my backpack weighs heavily,
as I clamber and scramble,
shin barked and breathless,
inching towards my goal,
O if only I’d taken the escalator
for this steep ascent,
the office to which I’m bound.

Let It Shine – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

What Do You See? – Willow Poetry

Thanks for the prompt Helene Vaillant at Willow Poetry.

 

Let It Shine

There’s many a thing left normally unseen,
and not least the closeness of other worlds,
but most of all,
I saw in a dream,
such a one who had opened their true heart,
was gifting their light,
an illumine of love for us all.

Keep The Change – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Keep The Change

As I ordered my usual,
an enquiry came forth,
had I considered the new line?
A meaningful conversation ensued
about habits and patterns,
and change was advocated by and large,
then, as my coffee arrived, I said,
as I wryly smiled,
keep the change.

Fragments Of You – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Splinter – Word of the Day

Fragments Of You

I remember,
as a child you were
sometimes so terrifying,
your anger could splinter my whole being,
and now, years later,
you are gone,
the terror long subsided,
my self more complete,
now I am trying to put together
the fragments
of you.

With Love – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Forlorn – Word of the Day

With Love

Those days,
when it all comes crashing down,
and logic whispers …
but the roar of misery is greater,
and though friends call round,
the pain lingers and,
though the tent of joy is rent wide,
the seamstress you need most,
is self-understanding,
cum amore.
