THE EVENING WIND



The evening wind has kissed my heart with sultry thoughts of a beautiful woman dreaming of me in fantasies.

Her once broken dreams have been mended with kindness through the written words of a small collection of my poems.

She reads them late into the night and finds forgotten treasures of romance and love glowing from their pages.

Could she be the muse who has come into my life to remind me that my prose poems are also gifts for the weak, lonely and brokenhearted?

Inside the melancholy of my most precious poems, a feeling of contentment flows mellifluously from her tender heart to mine.

When I hear her lamenting in silent sorrow, I am overcome with intense emotion and wish I could cleanse her tears with words written only from love.

The evening wind has indeed kissed my lips with the sweet, perfume scent of this beautiful woman as we search for each other beneath life's mysterious enchantments.

  2. " When I hear her lamenting in silent sorrow, I am overcome with intense emotion and wish I could cleanse her tears with words written only from love. "

    Dear Andy, No fancy icons today....only truth.

    I don't know that I'll ever cease to be amazed by the words you write. For many years I have searched, discovered and read beautiful poetry from so many talented poets.

    I read poetry because there is so much beauty in our world that often can only be experienced and truly felt by the Heart through the gift of words... Oh Andy...sweet Poet_friend of mine, what a rare treasure you are. Unequivocally yours is the most magnificent writing I have ever in my life read. You my dear cannot possibly have an equal.

    I am blessed beyond all thought...I am moved...beyond all reason. And yet I know your best poem is still embedded in your soul..waiting till the right time to touch our Hearts.

    ♥ Lovingly, and in sincere Friendship, Ariana

  4. Hello again Liz...smiling...honey is good, very yummy. Thank you. I'm glad to see you stop by again.

    Hello also to Marian...smiling...I did have some help with "mellifluous".
    Life is so short. We should dabble a little in love & romance every now and then (smile). Thank you for taking the time to write. I appreciate it.

  6. My dear Ariana,
    I wanted to post this comment directly under your reply, but unfortunately Blogger doesn't have that functionality.

    Ariana, what you have written here today has touched me deeply.

    I never went to any special school to study poetry. I cannot explain it. For me, poetry is a way of life. My inspiration comes from listening to melancholic music and just living life.

    Life is sometimes ugly but refuge can indeed be found in poetic words.

    There are so many great writers out there. If fame and fortune comes my way as a result of my writing, then I'll happily embrace it. If not, I'll still continue to write for the sheer joy and pleasure it gives me.

    Ariana, I am humbled beyond words by your high praise of my simple words. I cannot put into words here how grateful I am for your tireless support.
    Many thanks again.

  7. Dear Mary, thank you once again for your kind comment.

  8. Oh, but I soooo agree with Liz above - your poetry is filled with the sweetness of honey - YES, that's totally IT. I mean, "The evening wind has kissed my lips with the sweet perfume scent of this beautiful woman - " That is gorgeous!

    Andy, thanks for stopping by and for your most generous comment. What's a Home Button? How do I add it? I'm a total dinosaur when it comes to computers. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

  9. Smiling...Kittie, Kittie, what am I to do with you?

    Your sweet response touches me. Thank you. I'm glad you like this one.

    It's all about sharing. I remember what it was like for me when I was a newbie to blogging. I'm happy to help. I'm going to email you about the "Home" button.

  13. Andy, my friend,

    Your work never ceases to amaze me. This poem reveals the side of you that is tender, and sentimental. The words find me in awe of how a woman like this has captured your emotions by your desire to be there for her. Keep on witing and sharing your poems with the world and I am certain that one day it will happen for you.

    As Always,
    Ruthi

  14. Welcome back andymac89. I find when my heart and mind are at ease, I can write freely. Thank you Andy for the lovely sentiment.

    For Ruthi: My dear Ruthi...smiling...my muse comes in many shapes, sizes and images. Just depends on my mood at the time.

    I was beginning to think you had deserted me (smile). Thanks for all your help and your continued support. I'll see you soon.

  18. Hello Geraldine. Welcome to my blog.
    Thank you for taking the time to comment on this poem.

    I've been over at your blog and it is indeed a "happy" blog.

    Smiling...I've borrowed your word of the week "manifest" and turned it into word of everyday life for the message it imparts.

    You really are a true romantic.

  23. I think prose poems call for a lot of balance and tapping into poetry in a new way. Certainly you manage this and this topic touches all of us as poets. Our lives seem to be filled with those who think it's all a waste of time. So clearly our muse comes to us in many guises.

  24. To Beachanny: Thank you for such heartfelt sentiments. I agree...there are too many who think love & romance are a waste of time, but thankfully, I'm NOT one of them. It's a common theme in all my poems. Thank you for taking the time to visit. I appreciate it.

  31. It's funny, I thought I was a romantic yet I don't think I've ever written a love poem. Now there's no need. I think your writing and your love fills the universe with good sentiment and romance - enough for us all. You are gifted Andy.

  51. Beautiful, romantic thoughts. However, sometimes one must stop dreaming and act in order for romance to become a reality. For too many years I had my head in the clouds and missed out on real opportunities. Still and all, beautiful EVOCATIVE words...
