Here you can read four more of my poems, from the magic of Rio to the pain of a lovers tiff, remember "A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman." read on...

Four poems of love and wanting

I wrote this whilst in Rio

I met her at the carnival, encircled by her cloak of camouflage
Was it to hide her from the eyes of strangers, or was there another reason?
In a way she had an air of attractiveness that was pulling me closer.
As she intermingled with the crowd I felt a strong urge to follow,
The clamour and reverberation of the carnival increased to a fever pitch
I could feel my heart pounding with the beat of the drums they seem to get faster and louder
At one moment I thought I had lost her, but then I caught a glimpse of her studded sombrero
And closed in, the pounding of the drums, were having the same effect on the rest of the crowd
It seemed as if the whole throng were swaying with the music, and then she was gone
All I was left with was the memory of the lady with the mask and the studded sombrero
.

The lady with the mask and the studded sombrero.

In my next poem I take a lesson I have learned, I call the poem "Women"

Women come in many guises; it’s up to you to choose
If you want her wild, you will have to accept, the odd deep scratch or bruise
You could pick a hot one, but my friend, be very very aware
You see you might get badly burnt, this advice I share
I speak from experience, and this is one lesson I have sorely learnt
If you play with fire, you will in the end, get very badly burnt
Why not pick a shy one? You just might be surprised
She might just be a sly one, and pleasing to the eye
To me, I picked a smart one; I like a woman with style
She a woman that can be all of these things, she’s hot and wild; she’s smart and shy,
And she’s very versatile.

Women one by one they pass through your lives, but you must choose

This next one is simple called , "I think of you"

As I lay in my bed listening to the morning sounds bidding a new dawn
The cloak of night slowly evaporates giving way to the new day
Trees whisper your name as it’s carried on a breeze to be kissed by the new morning’s sun
The distant rumbling Clickety click of the 5.45 stopping train to Victoria echoes around.
And then as if by magic, Mother Nature turns a dial, I see snowdrops and crocus appear, the birds are singing, it looks like springtime is here
The sound of the robin announces his territory to the others that may share his domain
Then all at once a flicker of sunlight makes diamonds from the dew
The yellow crocus opens her wings to greet the warming sun
As the shy snowdrop bows her head amongst the melting snow

And I think of you

I loved the painting below so much I just wanted to write what I saw in it

She waits with baited anticipation in her world of sorrow
They had squabbled the night before, and to her it was just a silly tiff
But he had taken it to heart, what was it she said that had upset him so?
He was due to call on her about this time as arranged but she had been waiting
It seems forever, and slowly she became to realize that whatever it was had hurt him
She never meant to hurt him, after all, all lovers quarrel, was he being misunderstood?
She thought she knew him, with all his qualms and ways
Why did she allow herself to fall so deeply in love with him, suddenly she heard a step outside
The door opened and there he stood, a little boy look on his face “I’m sorry darling” he said
“Please forgive me”
She looked up and smiled, “Forgive you for what?” She said, with one bound he was by her side, her flimsy
Nightgown fell to her side as he took her in his arms, “I will never let you go my darling; I want to be with you forever.”

The Quarrel.

Like the Selection of poems out here....
Especially The lady with the mask and the studded sombrero.
I won't say why, but it leaves me grinning from ear to ear....
But have to admit, still waters run deep and shy ones are the ones who are usually still as they have no courage to admit their love for the person, but if they do, consider yourself the luckiest man in the world... ;-)

They are rascals too, you never find out much about them as they cannot talk but they do... When they do express, the world just stops to listen... Its what they are behind the mask that makes them who they are.... Not what they describe themselves to the world...

Lovely work johnnydod, "Woman" was a real treat and it flowed so well, the art work makes this poem for me it looks like whipping cream formed in a wine glass. A lovely job johnnydod. We or I often times forget that our monitors are also writers here at wikinut sorry I take you for granted so, I am very forgetful and I am constantly trying to expand my reach and grow I so want to earn some extra income to help those I love out, and as much as I can. And this along with all the other things I am trying and learning are starting to grow and just now starting to earn a little bit more than pennies here and there. Thanks for your share, how do you find the time to do all that you do Johnny? Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man
