Lizards

The physical manifestations

of your abhorrent manipulations

are rippling excitations

down my lizard spine

 

Such unexpected permutations

include exquisite evocations

and post coital proclamations

from a forked tongue

 

But after countless titillations

i’m left to ponder ruminations

during lengthy hibernations

so cools my reptilian blood

  1. Brilliant ! You change style effortlessly again Diana. An expression of the eternal attraction of the wrong un’, whether femme fatale or bad boy, in an almost masochistic way we find the excitement of these encounters exquisite. Do we think we’re the one’s to change their ways, a sort of seduction/sexual game show or is it the power they seem to have, the lucky escape and are able to ‘cool their reptilian blood’.
    I now ponder what ‘written base metal’ you’ll turn into ‘gold’ next O’ Alchemist of word !

    1. A staggeringly thought provoking comment kind Sir! In your own description, this was a “tumbler” : the words flew out of an unknown dusty chamber of my inner self. I’m so grateful to have you join me on this exquisite journey ๐Ÿ˜Œ

      1. You’re most gracious, I believe, that at times, a part of every poet’s inner self overlaps and entwines with that of other Alchemist of word, like a complex Celtic knot or a mandala so our minds and paths cross and weave and flow around each other for as long as we keep opening our doors. And in those unknown dusty chambers great truths can be found .

      2. I love how your mind works Nigel! Perhaps we do enter a collective ethereal dimension. And what a magnificent place it is, with fusion of thought and motivation between us all ๐Ÿ˜Œ

      1. Well it’s just turned 6am morning here and I haven’t slept due to the addiction of WordPress and game of thrones but it is the weekend so yipeee

      2. Those are healthy addictions! I have some binge GOT catch-up planned for the Fall (need to see those Dragons grow up). Have a great sleep when you finally hit the hay ๐Ÿ˜Š

      3. Beach date today with friends and dogs galore. Hopefully the water will be warm enough for a dip.
        Enjoy your ‘evening’? – where are you?

      4. I’m in Sydney. I’ve always wanted to get a van and travel around Canada. When I don’t have my animals it will be definitely on my list. The natural landscapes look divine.

      5. Sounds like an awesome plan! I’m an Aussie who moved to Canada 20 yrs ago, so can appreciate the attraction. And I moved my pups with me – they went from chasing possums to running madly after squirrels.

      6. Wow really? Yeah Canada has appealed to me on many an occasion where I see the landscape. I just want a van or 4 wheeler with a borrowed doggy with some music playing and the windows down cruising around from place to place.
        Where in oz were you from?

      7. Whoa, I somehow never saw this message! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I’m from Hobart originally but have lived in both Adelaide, Brissie and Noosa. It’s been a great adventure. Hope you are well ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The repetitive endings give an aggressive rhythm to the piece. Weaving together evocations of pain and excitement, like oxymorons embedded in your lines. Painstaking pleasure feels like it oozes from the sensory words of this reptilian view.

    1. An excellent analysis, I’m so pleased that you wrote. I’m still in two minds whether I even like this piece, it’s dark. It’s from a raw inner world. I guess we aren’t always fond of what we see inside?

      1. I understand how you feel about this piece. It is raw. It feels like it comes from hidden depths, places you would not normally access, because they scare you in their peculiarity. I am not sure it is shines a light on who you are deep down, these are just thought that don’t reflect you but still somehow cross your consciousness.

      2. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Not only are you lovely, kindhearted… with a tender soul … you are also wise. They are indeed thoughts from the cross pollination of interactions with others, media influences etc Tender hearts are impressionable – are we not?

      3. Oh we are impressionable, but we learn to differentiate what we see and are exposed to, from what we do in turn. Those foreign sights are just parasites, they can’t take hold of you. You are always stronger than they are.

      4. The negative media of the last year or so did get to me though, I have stopped watching the news for the last few months in order to gently rebuild my soul with positivity and respect for all of humanity. Now I am getting “heavy” on you ๐Ÿ˜‰

      5. I don’t watch the news. I just read the headlines and whatever interests me. Our human lives are too short to be drowned in media politics. It gives us a falsified image of what we are, and affects what the world could be without the influence of these restricting frightful tale. There is beauty in humanity. So much beauty that I witness in my daily life. I don’t want my focus to be stolen by media calculations. That is also why I write to share another view of the world.

      6. This is a wonderful way to live and resonates with me deeply. It explains our friendship/writer’s crush/blissful relationship of words! ๐Ÿ’• Your view of the world is intoxicating and pure. I can’t get enough of it ๐Ÿ˜Œ

      7. Thank you my sweet friend. Our views are indeed strolling along the same path.

        I have always been told by my teachers – especially at university that I should read the papers and watch the news, and that I would not succeed otherwise.

        Well I proved them wrong. I read articles when they concern an issue I am interested in, and I hear of the news when my family relays it to me, but I can’t be subjected to this constant flow of negativity. It doesn’t reflect the world I live in. Tragedy is happening all around us, caused mostly by politics. Again the media chose to relay what they please, and silence many tragic scenes, while shedding too much light on others, often again to fulfil a political agenda. I am aware of the atrocities taking place in our world. I refuse to limit my perception of humanity to that. Governing bodies and politics cause tragedy by taking corrupted stands. Human beings like you and I, and most people I know, take a different approach in their daily life. The more positive you are, the more positive people are going to be around you. The reverse is true too.

  3. B, I’m re-reading this comment, and it succinctly and rather wonderfully summarizes the dilemma of living and dealing with the world right now. Would you be interested in reposting it on your blog with some embellishments if needed at some point? Your opinions here have great value, dear heart. They shouldn’t be tucked away on this thread.

  4. Ladies, choose to live in a different world, you’re welcome in mine although every time you find and open a new door you let a little piece of your own out. I’ve been creating worlds for ages ! I keep then in a jar. I keep everything in jars, thoughts, memories, songs and each morning I take a bit from each jar and make a ‘world of the day’ . Of course it helps if you’re a sandwich short of a picnic !

    1. Oh thank you kind sir! Of course your comment is uplifting and your jars seem so well ordered, and clearly labelled. I’ve borrowed one overnight and it’s certainly cheered me up (especially when I drank the clear liquid straight). Focussing on the screen is getting more difficult though…๐Ÿ˜‰
