The flames of passion have consumed my heart with joy, because of the temptress who embraced my poetry with tear-filled eyes.

When dusk sets in, I find myself writing words once scattered in fantasy, but now decorated upon paper…in the form of her beautiful smile.

Fickle by nature, her beauty displays human sweetness among swaying flowers that have never seen the light of femininity.

What mystery is this my heart has come to know, when poetic words are all that we share?

Life's luminous colors now appear more radiant to me, because of the jewels I have found through the sparkle in her eyes.

In celebration of our literary friendship, she gracefully inspires and motivates me to pen words of fire upon the parchments of my lonely dreams.

When dusk sets in, our hearts secretly bear the same rhythmic happiness, while searching for tender moments in which to indulge our random musings.

    My Dear Kindred P♥et_Friend...I... as well as many other women here...would like to think that perhaps we...are a small part of the Literary friendship...that has inspired you to write the most lovely poetry that has ever graced the pages of any poetry book...

    I am never....never...ever... Disappointed!

  2. "What mystery is this my heart has come to know, when poetic words are all that we share?" A powerful verse. Powerful lexis throughout

    Thanks for your comment.

  3. Andy? sometimes you hit it way outta the park. like with this:
    "In celebration of our literary friendship, she gracefully inspires and motivates me to write words of fire upon the parchments of my lonely dreams."
    who wouldn't want to play the role of that muse?

  4. This is very sweet, as I believe we all search for, and deserve, that one kindred spirit for which to understanding the meaning of our muse. Beautifully written!

    @ Kim Nelson: Hello Kim. Nice to see you again. Thanks for taking the time to write and visit.

  8. Andy, I love 'words of fire.' You have written another poem full of heart.

  9. Hello Liz. Thanks for commenting. I'm happy that you stopped by.

    Welcome back Mary. Your kind words are much appreciated. Thanks for coming.

  10. Andy, You never cease to amaze me with your beautiful and expressive words. I love the part about writing "words of fire"... they could most assuredly melt the coldest heart! I look forward to your next poem with anticipation. Princess Anne

  11. Andy, I am speechless! Once again you have captivated me with your compassionate words from your heart. Very well written!

    I only wish that I could open my heart as you do and pen my feelings onto paper, but silly rhymes are all that come out when I start to write. I have only been able to express my true feeling once and you are welcome to read it at: http://www.thefickleforgettery.blogspot.com/2011/01/grasping-for-words.html

  12. Hello to my favorite Princess Anne: Smiling...Thank you for staying up to write such warm sentiments. It means a lot to me that you're enjoying my "words of fire". I'm sure I'll have another poem for you soon. Have a lovely day, Princess.

    Hello to another of my girls, Wanda.
    Smiling...at least you're not weeping (well I hope not).

    I've just read your piece "Grasping For Words" and please believe me when I say it's beautiful. I've written a comment on it at your blog.

    It doesn't matter what you write, just write. Your rhymes are not silly. Your last piece "Initiation Day" was nicely done. It takes skill to rhyme, not all of us can do it (I'm one of them).

    It means a lot to me that you take the time to read my work and then comment on it as well.

    A special "Thank You" from me to you.

  13. This is a beautiful write. I love the connection between the writer and the feminine literary friend.

    Wonderful prose.

  14. Wow wow wow! Loved this penning!

  15. Where can I subscribe to your works/blog?

  16. Welcome back Jillien. Thanks for the kind sentiments.

    Hello Purvi: Thanks or joining the community. I appreciate your comments and hope you'll come by again soon.

  17. Hello Andy,

    As usual you are the master with words of great emotion and those things of the heart.
    Your writing simply allows you to expand on your wonderful skill.

    Thank you Andy for your supportive comments and visits to my Blog.

    Best wishes, Eileen

  18. Hello Eileen,
    I'm generally a happy guy and love to delve into all things relating to matters of the heart, good and bad.

    Your generous comments truly touch me and your constant feedback inspires me to write more.

    I echo your sentiments to me and thank you immensely for your continued support.

  19. You write with much passion Andy. Always a pleasure.

  20. Oh, Andy, I loved this. Whether the muse is real or imagined, her heart does beat in tandem with yours.

    I've known several literary - and I mean strictly literary - "partnerships" which have grown into blogs, into meaningful relationships, sometimes without having met in person, ever.

    A nice testament to the Web as well, when you think about it. Thanks, Amy

  21. To Poets United: Thanks.

    To sharplittlepencil: Hello Amy. Thank you for the lovely sentiments.
    It was nice to see you back again.
    If I've not already done so, I'll be stopping by your blog soon.
    Thanks for coming.

  22. I love this...especially the ending so many of us can relate to literary friendships, and lonely eves spent with muses.

  23. Hello lorely. I agree with you. Since I started blogging a few months ago, I've "met" some wonderful people and I'd like to think we have struck up literary friendships.

    Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  24. Such beautiful words!
    I so enjoyed!

  25. Welcome back Margie.
    Thanks for coming by. I appreciate your comments.

  26. Good evening Andy...such beautiful words, when dusk sets in! Wow...what mystery is this my heart has come to know, when poetic words are all that we share? The way you are able to express your words on paper are very special to the reader and I am so thankful to be one. I could go through each phrase and find tender expressions such as the luminious colors of life now appear more radiant to me, becuae of the jewels I have foud through the sparkle in her eyes. Andy, I know if you go back and read, and reread your words you will find the pure greatness of the meaning of each and every phrase yoy write.

  27. Good evening dearest Ruthi.
    It was nice to see you earlier today.

    Thank you for your kind sentiments. They mean more to me than I could ever express here in this space.

    I'm especially grateful for all the effort and hard work you've been putting in for me over the last few months, especially with your studying timetable and family demands.

    In the short time I've been blogging, I've learned so much from reading and sharing with others that I do like to revisit some of the older posts and tweak here and there, when the time permits.

    I wouldn't be able to build upon what I've learned if it wasn't for your continued support, feedback and encouragement.

    A thousand "Thank yous" from me to you and I hope we can contiune our friendship for many years to come.

    See you soon, dear friend.

  28. In celebration of our literary friendship, she gracefully inspires and motivates me to write words of fire upon the parchments of my lonely dreams.

    In praise of Blogland's abiility to encourage our "power of the mind", methinks? :)

  29. Well hello Jinksy.
    Smiling...Blogland does indeed have its uses.

    Thanks for commenting.

  30. Andy,

    I do like the notion of 'distance connection' between the two!

  34. Literature binds two souls and serves as a grand communication tool in the most beautiful way possible :)

  35. Your words are so sensual and emotional. Lovely.

    (Thanks for visiting my blog and asking about Hortense. She's okay, but a little slow in the inspiration department. Still, I have hopes for her.)

  36. Hello Clariice. Thank you for the lovely. It was nice of you to stop by.

    Hello again Myrna: Smiling...give Hortense time.
    Thank you for taking the time to write.

  38. Thanks Celestial Dreamz. I appreciate your time and comments.

  39. This is such a delight to read, Andy! Your imagery was amazing, and I could absolutely relate to the words myself!

    The bond we share with our muses is quite outstanding...isn't it? Very well said, my friend.. Bravo!!

  40. To Kavita: Indeed...where would our poetry be without our muses?

    Thank you so much for stopping in. Your heartfelt comments are greatly appreciated.

  41. You never disappoint Andy. The pictures you paint with the artists brush of your words are always so compelling.

  42. Hello Jenny.
    Thank you for the kind words. I've been away, hence the delay in responding. I'm looking forward to rejoining Alphabe-Thursday.
    See you soon!
