No Love for Twister

Twister1

Stars shine bright on an indigo night

Vision far-seeing and focused

Moon mirrors my love for you

Day breaks forth when Morning comes

Sun steps on-stage to set Earth Mother aglow

It glows brightest where you stand

Evidence of pleasure without measure

Satisfaction complete with morning dew

Cleansing need inspires naked rain dance

Bathing beat in rain – spellbinding attraction

Lures Lightning’s attention and flashing affection

Bolts of synergy and sexual arousal

Thunder hears, Thunder sees, and Thunder roars

At Lightning’s illuminated faux pas

Moving to the beat of a mortal

Twister heard Thunder tales, came to see ‘tis true

He laughed at Lightning’s shocking antics

Then saw you and loved at first sight

He tried to wind his way into your heart

Your rebuff smacked his spiral hard

He cried awhile… fizzled… and was no more

        Thank you. I’ll add it to my collection of favorite things. I have a folder I’ve set up to save poetry and other stuff that interest me.

        Perhaps there’s a lady Twister in the future. It’s something to think about for another piece.

        Yeah, I like the idea. They could twist together and make one hellacious tornado, tearing up everything that got in their path before lifting back up into the clouds to live happily ever after.

        It is definitely something to consider. I loved playing with the natural entities along with the love metaphors.

        Well, thank you, Cathy. That definitely means a lot from the only writer I have ever felt comfortable collaborating with.

        We’ll have to do it again soon. I have just about wrapped up a project, and don’t intend to write any prose for a week at least. A poem would be a nice change of pace.

        That sounds great to me, my friend. There are plenty of topics we have yet to mine for their treasure-filled metaphors. We’ll have to think them over.

        Yes, we will and see what we can come up with. I’m off to bed, JW. Good night and sweet dreams, dear friend. 🙂

        Then it’s a plan. And good night and sweet dreams to you as well, Pretty Lady.

    I loved the beginning of the poem when the twister is just forming — the stars are shining, the moon mirrors love… it steadily gets more violent with pronounced sexual energy — rain, lightning, thunder, and then a roaring climax which ends in a fizzle. Lol. I guess sex can be just like that at times fierce and then limp. Sorry; pun intended. 😀 Excellent poem, JW.

      Thank you for the response, Rose. And yes, even youth and vitality do not guarantee a happy ending if you’re not with the right person. It took me 3 tries to find my perfect life-mate.
