love the planting of a wasted kiss…and the taste of snowflakes and ashes made me shiver a bit… what a cool combo
I have planted a few of those in my time, I can tell you!
One of your best,
Thank you, Jim. I have gone back to being inspired by Veronica Franco, to imagining her as a modern companion in a Venice I have never visited, to imagining her as someone on whom I have a crush and who occasionally allows me to kiss her, to imagining myself as a small cloud beside her sun. Some, but not all, of my poetry inspired by her can be found here, amongst other poetry:
Damn! I must revisit my Handel and crack open a book or two.
Also, I meant to ask where your WordPress icon image is from. Same period?
It’s from the 1868 painting ‘The Bather’ by Gustave Courbet.
I also like this one:
even though it expresses typical male fascination with lesbian imagery.
Wonderful poem and I, especially, loved the second and third verses..
Thank you. I find that when I read poetry by someone else, stanzas seem to stand out in that manner.
