The Code

O fickle love

your fingertips part my preposterous notions

as spring petals dampen with oleaginous dew

my tongue traces in cursive flow

all the curved secrets: sanctimonious you

..

for words merely gather the solitary sighs

of a craven collective myth

constricting with bind of twine

to tether wrists forthwith

..

with eyes closed

i discover your truth

raised braille on cool skin

conveys all to me

messages you dare not speak

are fierce textured, transparent

and eyelid fluttered morse code

–  – – – . . – – . – . …. / – – .

says, come to me; run from me

let that time arrive,

when we shall be…

  1. Reading a person is an art, sifting one’s way through the codes and through the self created image of them… This poem is layered, meandering, technically and poetically astounding at the same time.. My dear friend, you truly are a master poetess of this time.. Lucky are the ones who get to read your work…

    P.S. A special mention to these lines –
    “your fingertips part my preposterous notions

    as spring petals dampen with oleaginous dew”

    Perfection!

    1. How can one reply to this, my devoted friend? I’m sure someday I will re-read such beautiful comments and really question if my writing deserved them.
      Ever grateful to you for your thoughtful brushstrokes on my (porous) canvas. I’ll let your bright words leech into me and colour me happy tonight 😊🌹🌹♥️♥️

        Your “ardent awe” is nothing other than fingertips softly strumming my heartstrings tonight. The music is a lullaby sweeping me under fluffed slumber clouds. 😚💗🌌 😴

      2. Oh sweet Australia! I can almost hear the rustle of the eucalypts and the sound of an old Ute trundling past haha.
        And there you are standing on the porch inviting me in for a cups. Tremendous vision and you a smiling sight to behold … 🐨 💜💜

      3. Ooo gorgeous vision. I’d love it too, except we have no porch, but there are gorgeous river gums on the water nearby, in this weather, perfect place for a cuppa, maybe a Tim Tam 😁

    1. On a whim I used a online Morse decoder/translator. I listened to the message over and over. I wonder if I should write in Morse from now on. Or Latin hehe? (Room goes quiet). Thanks so much my friend; hope your Easter weekend is going well! ❤

      Either way…thanks a whole BIG bunch!!

  5. Your very essence is poetry, you are artful! Your a river that continue to flow. Your imagery of selective words is brilliantly impossible to teach. then to end with a push pull warning, desire, passion reveal but not wanting to be accepted.

    1. Your words are a pearl in a sea of sand filled oysters. I ask myself, how did this pearl form and will I ever see it again, and then you write again and I’m overwhelmed. I am so grateful to you each and every time. You make me feel unique ❤ Thank you!
