My Heart She Owns

In spring she comes to tease the eye,

the exquisite sakura bloom.

Bewitched beauty he can’t deny;

a sweet perfume.


Her rains refresh the barren ground,

renews the earth parched and distressed.

So softly with subconscious sound;

renewal’s quest.


With stealthy grace she stalks the night,

like elegant panther paces.

Bonfires erupt from sultry sight,

passion races.


Softly coos with love’s warm embrace

belies a protective nature.

Life surrendered in offspring’s place.

She will endure.


Be creamy curves and velvet lips

or taut with most muscular tones.

Feminine nature far outstrips.

My heart she owns.

Whoo hoo..kudos2U!! This was a real treat know when I came to "renewal's quest" something clicked and right there I had to stop...for the strongest feeling came over me that this would be a fantastic title for this poem. Why am I telling you this? Hmm...maybe because it really felt a bit odd and I thought it was worth mentioning. I love it when this happens because it feels like a huge tap on my brain...hell I'm glad something gives it a nudge every once in a while. This was quite a challenge and you aced it man! Whew...look at YOU go!! =))

I can only imagine how hard this was to write, reading your author's notes described the difficulty very well. Fantastic job, bravo Andrew.

Well done Ali x

Very interestuing style and poem.

Andrew that last stanza was magnificent. I can't imagine the difficulty writing this piece but I bow to the master. The crown has been passed to you as the most original in theme and form. Or would you like an Oscar of sorts, :] never mind you RULE

I think I'm a big fan of this one, both style and subject. I must say, given my attachment to the subject, I kept thinking that the whole work could go to describe rain. Yes, passion, love, even the delicacy of femininity, but just the all-encompassing, recurring event of rain. Maybe because it was a bit of a rainy day, but still, how refreshing :)

Wow, not sure who this is too, but Andrew this was a delightful read! I really enjoyed it very much!


Cool..I still want that write with you!

first this goes to my favorites.

second you have to teach me in "toddler" terms what iambic tetrameter and iambic bi meter means PLEASE!
third I gotta say I think of our very own SHE WHISPERS when I read this. I am sure she will love this poem!
I Know I do! It is such an elegant flowing poem I would love to try this form if I could ever understand what Iambic bla bla bla means!
Very good poetry!

Comment By: FreeTanya Harrison on April 17, 2010 11:14:09 AM Report
Very beautiful! Well done.
Comment By: PremiumHOPE on April 16, 2010 08:41:46 PM Report
A beautiful poem  and perfectly done.  A wonderful description of a "Natural Woman"  I have tried iambic poetry and I know how difficult it is and I have given up on it.  So please continue, you did a terrific job.

Comment By: PremiumLinda Jo on April 16, 2010 02:58:37 PM Report
well you know the first stanza is my blooms that tease the eye...ummm...what a creative reflection on the delicacy of bring out so well the diversity...who says a woman is always a demure creature?  "with stealthy grace she stalks the elegant panther paces"  this is just fantastic! you think you could make a movie next?

now i feel the need to say something about the, a challenge to say the least...great job!  you are tackling these forms with what seems to be great ease...I dont even see any perspiration on your upper lip...or forehead, either.  keep up the great the are growing with each new no slacking, my friend!!

WOW Andrew...This is so great, full of character and flavor. I was trying to select a fav line but I enjoyed eac and every word. It is a seducing write, and very complex. This shows your devine talent and skill. When you do write it is delightful....

I saw myself in this piece..esp the lines:

In spring she comes to tease the eye ( the layers shed and skin revealed)

With stealthy grace she stalks the night, (everyone has a good and bad side to them

 Softly coos with love’s warm embrace...Belies a protective nature ( so many hold back but do want to be seized by passionate hands)
