candied sap trickles from tongue

diffident lips gently parting

i’m teased by the sun

molten, golden

drips forth a dulcet delirium


an epicentre of entanglement

begins with you

radiating out, web strands soused with dew

insect shells, hollowed, glisten

wreath of wings, behold, frisson


perhaps a state of langour

teased by dissonant breeze

vacant exoskeleton

cell coffin of could be’s


perhaps a chrysalis dormant

wings moist with vestigial fold

preparing to unfurl, unveil`

our desirous destiny untold

    1. Thank you for your exquisitely worded…ever humbling appreciation dear Isha! In this piece I was contemplating the web of personal entanglements: sometimes we are fed upon and left as remnants …. but we flew directly into the tantalizing, hypnotic pattern!
      Sometimes we hang hoping for an unexpected burst of butterfly possibilities!

      2. A computer failure for a blogger is akin to loss of a limb! I hope the day is at least blue sky and birds singing … and maybe the Cats are winning some games?


      3. Whoa that’s down to the wire! Miss Aussie rules up here … one of the world’s most exciting sports! Go Kangaroo’s hehe!!


      1. Hi Charlie … your poetry is way to out there for me … πŸ™‚ For some readers we might need assistance in the interpretation…. Although I love reading ” β€˜Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
        Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
        All mimsy were the borogoves,
        And the mome raths outgrabe.” out loud lol

      2. I try to assist my readers with interesting interpretations of my work.

        I do understand that is way out there. That’s how I love to communicate with my way of poetry. I’ve tried the other way, and it just doesn’t speak to me.

        Thank you, Diana for giving my work a chance. Stay tune for my next poem. πŸ™‚
