flesh. Electricity

transudes through a

Sun-bordered clouds migrate from
your eyes to my core:

swooshing of curtains, temples
like drums.

Hypnotic pulsations mark lines
between dreams

and life, as
time contracts in us.

And with the last loud blink
of a light bulb,

shadows withdraw,
and kaleidoscopes convulse.

You convey an experience so vividly and sharply I feel it in my bones.

Anna Piutti said...

Thank you so much, Patry!

Sensitive and sensual, this brief poem depicts vivid imagery more than it could say...I love the lines:
"Sun-bordered clouds migrate from
your eyes to my core". It is like an "I & Thou" encounter.

Anna Piutti said...

Thank you, Danny.

Anna, you've conveyed subtle feelings in a very concrete and touchable way. Very nicely done!

Anna Piutti said...

Thank you, moose!

I like 'transudes'. "Hey, you wanna transude with me tonight?"

And I love it when the kaleidoscopes cunvulse. Happens to me all the time!

I'm being silly.

May the light in you shine long and bright.

thanks for your friendship.



Anna Piutti said...

Thanks for yours, O silly boy! ;)
Have a great day!

I am new to your site. I love the angularity of this poem. I can nearly hear Thelonius Monk playing "Well You Needn't" in the background.

I will link to your site if you like.

Hmm, I tried posting a comment a few minutes ago, and when I clicked "publish", everything disappeared.

Briefly, I mentioned how I liked the angularity of this poem; that I could sense the presence of Thelonius Monk's "Well, You Needn't" in the background.

Anna Piutti said...

Thank you for your comments, finnegan! You can definitely link to my site, that would be really kind of you.

Danny said...

Hi Anna,

Madayaw na Bag-ong Tuig! (Happy New year!)

Thank you so much, Danny!
Happy New Year to you!

A smooth, slippery kind of impressionism. Interesting.

Thank you.
