ONElia AVElar

(Bulgaria)

Beach


Fine, warm sand under the skin;
breeze playing with the long hair;
seagull`s yells and distant babel;
she feels invisible - stretched
on the overcrowded beach;
innocent, bare-back Eve
from the holy Bible.

    Fine, warm sand under the skin;
    breeze playing with the long hair;
    seagull`s yells and distant babel;
    she feels invisible - stretched
    on the overcrowded beach;
    innocent, bare-back Eve
    from the holy Bible.

    Surely a self-portrait, Onelia - you've captured the primitive feeling of joy, freedom and abandon to sensuality and the warm sun that one feels on a beach holiday... and I expect Adam was glad you were there too! (Report) Reply

    Hail to thee blithe spirit!
    You sing the songs of bare being;
    The sun, the sea and the breeze,
    Like seagull, release the body's ring.

    Sand under the skin in an atmosphere of Bibilical disonnance sets a classical scene - yet you rescue yourself with innocent(?) and timeless ingenuity! Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    Eve on the primordial beach. This author often feels estranged in crowded places. However here there's the sea element with all its appendages. (Report) Reply

    A wordpainting that has an emotional weight to it as the surroundings and the feelings of isolation in a crowded space are cleverly conveyed. There is a sense that the narrator is lost in a moment - alone in her own Eden perhaps unaware of everything else around her...justine. (Report) Reply

    the imagery is very intense, i picture a crowd of people, sun and laughter, and you isolated and alone. Perhaps contemplating a sin such as eve's original sin, has left you feeling like this on such a beautiful day? This is my favorite of your works so far 10/10 (Report) Reply

    yet not baleful by the breeze
    warmth still croons by the yell
    innocence when rocked up
    in the vale of tunes.................wonderful poem, breath still stops for a moment by the gloss, unique imagery yet lucid and thought provoking, well penned, it deseves 10+, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
