Soul Reverie

by Gradmama2011

I like a rhyme that curls the toes and mists the brow
telling a tale as fresh as tomorrow that comes in a dream but is real
and chills the heat of the restless kiss, escaping a lover’s lips.

Nothing spoken caresses the impact on the senses
like a passionate poem with soul-filled stanzas
I like a rhyme that curls the toes and mists the brow.

To a reverie back in time to the moment that captured the soul
lost in the soul-mate meeting, found in the loss of the Self
and chills the heat of the restless kiss, escaping a lover’s lips

O what has become of the reverie that comes in a dream but is real
longing for belonging, for only the Lost and the Found
I like a rhyme that curls the toes and mists the brow
and chills the heat of the restless kiss, escaping a lover’s lips

    Clearly not intended to adhere to the Villanelle format….Metre, Rhyme and Length? 😉

      actually I thought it was… but I’m not a poet. here’s the guidelines I followed: “19 lines, two rhymes throughout, each 5 tercets and a quatrain. 1st and 3rd lines of first trecet recurring alternately at end of other tercets, and with both repeated at close of concluding quatrain.” Let me find the source of that… 🙂

        Have a look here :
        https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/text/poetic-form-villanelle
        You’ll find here the classic example in Dylan Thomas’…
        ‘Do not go gentle in the night’….
        Hugs!

        I just printed out Mad Girl’s Love Song, Sylvia Plath. I also saw Dylan Thomas the one you mentioned,…. now I am challenged to write a real Villanelle. 🙂

        been listing books for sale…frustrating task. I need to do ebay stuff too, but I would rather just hang out and expound on one thing or another.

        the more I work on my poor lost attempt at a Villanelle the worse it gets. I think it is what it is, and can’t be hammered into something else. It has its own rhythm, or meter, or whatever…and does not take well to being rewritten. Perhaps I shall set aside my poor lost love and write about a red maple tree instead… 🙂

        Take a ‘breather’…..Have a fresh ‘Go’… 😉
