It begins with a phrase that stirs the mind eyes twinkle, mischief lingers on smiles first strings of curiosity When intrigue bewitches hearts Instinct blindfolds reason And puppeteers play Till you’ve fallen Dancing tunes time once scorned
For desire, it
to your fear

aches shake minds while in hearts emotions quake Dams strung to control For minds and hearts are tamed but souls are meant to be free they tag and groan against all strings for they know what puppet love becomes… – but a trickle of Waterfalls within
drifters out at sea one afloat, other drowning saving you, saves me
Hope you enjoy this. Looking forward to your thoughts.
I was really craving the ascending/descending syllables of an etheree(the two poems in bold). I wrote them with Reena’s #RXC and Sadje’s #whatdoyousee prompts in mind. The two verses in between the etheree are a poetry form called the lanturne, for Colleen’s #tankatuesday. Lastly, is an encore senryu for #Eugisweekly.
