Last Minute Heaven

To touch space
and shiver against
those fabric-brushed
black fields of
dismembered poppies.
To see eyes sparkle
an epitaph of love,
in shallow-paddled
darkness,
hoping serenity
stays afloat,
just one
more
minute.

Breathless
they touch…
barely,
intensity
blowing sense
into void,
as ends one
minute’s calling`

~~~~~~

I have run my fingers
 through black inked petals,
that trail to heaven

and sat at the feet
 of mountains
 listening to my poets
heart, beat

As I traveled each turn
    of the page,
     off to my left peripheral
    steadily an image has
emerged

as I grow ever more
 restful, 
the goddess strobes incandescent

and my hands,
            bleed lightning

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

This one seems incomplete, as if you are retreating from the things you see there at your stretchy side view.
I wonder who stands there that you can nearly see, think and it will be clear, the Goddess will be there for you. Then look further just past that light, and there is a world that is a joy to see, Yours Ian.T
PS:- Loved the write x

Yes I remember this I think and each one holds a beauty of it's own, but combined with your care, they would shine a beauty of thought out to all that reads, Yours Ian.Tx

not good, but having read it again, I do remember the sense of it. In light of a recent conversation, I wonder; Is your t.v. to your left? Sometimes the most mundane of things can be exotic and cryptic, when approached with a bit of imagination. I am content with the image the second part left me. Love and higgest bugs, ~ Gee

why I am so ignorant
of how to evaluate poetry
as lovely as this..

loved

Discipline.
Not talking about bondage and leather, talking about knuckling down and learning. You don't even try.
Join a workshop. Learn some craft in your art.
Then you will write good poetry maybe one in ten instead of one in one thousand. Your machine gun effect is not working for you or your readers.
Stop whining and pleading for readers. Learn your craft and get better.

cheers,
Jess
