Captain Cur

(England)

Adagio, love poems


Your hair draping down
the side of your face
established before my eyes
a silhouette
that appeared remote,
yet intimately near.

The closeness of your spirit
as intense
as the distance of your gaze.

Your profile,
perfectly framed
against the moving backdropp
of the city,
like a modern sculpture
with classical overtures
delicately poised
on a pedestal of still air
warmly expressing itself.

The adagio of your face,
its quality and range,
momentarily captured
on the canvas of my eye.
Art beyond my experience!
Art beyond my description!

The depth and focus of your flesh
embracing your spirit that I love;
open and vulnerable,
belying great trust
and total acceptance.

I painted that image in my mind
and molded it into my median,
words.
Now I want to relive it,
again and again.

    The last lines now I want to relive it
    again and again says it all. Pictures of
    her lush beauty was imposed upon your
    mind and emotions. Whenever you want to
    see her again all you had to do was
    imagine, imagine and imagine..............!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
