Ecstasy

i n e c s t a s y






Her breath - a perfume
That made men delirious
In the summer heat


Her translucent skin
A pulsing beacon, a promise
Of untold heights


Her hair - a snare
That entangled their passion
Deadly in winter.


Deadly.

    1. Dear Tumblewords,
      I was surprised to see your Medusa, always expecting a Haiku or Sernyu. I am glad you liked this.

    1. Maybe you would love it better this way...

      Ses souffle était un parfum
      Cela fait des hommes en délire

      Sa peau translucide - invitant
      Un promis du sensualite

      Ses cheveux - un piège
      Cela empêtré leur passion

      Mortel.

  13. I read She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron early today and this poem and the likes, made me think about women, in a way.

  18. This piece trembles with drama Ninot!

    Thank you for your kind comments - re the cats, our two original cats are Malaysian, with bent tails. One is from Port Dickson while the other was found as a kitten in the car park at KLCC. Even though they both had difficult starts to life, they are not very welcoming to our recent additions.

  19. Dear Isabel,
    Thank you for your lovely comments. Crookshanks has a bent tail too. What would we do without our cats? Cats at KLIA?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry, it was KLCC. I remember, in Canada, stray cats found sanctuary behind the Parliament house in Ottawa.

  23. Dear Cynthia,
    Decadent indeed, overpowering all senses. Thank you.

  24. I loved the movie and when I saw the image , slowly the movie slipped in the poem weaving its way slowly until I could not see where the poem ended and the story telling started.
