The chase


A seduction of words

The meandering images

Of a flooded swollen river

Caught up in your deluge


A blinding sandstorm cloud

Rolling, red desert storm

Left wandering, lost in direction

Beseiged and surrounded by you


Tides keep revolving and turning

Ebbing and flowing audaciously

Tempting invitation to dive in

To be swallowed for love of you


The mountains rise steeply ahead

Taunting, titillating to climb

Each step higher and higher still

Reaching peaks, smothered in clouds


In the falling mists of a rain forest

You ended the chase amidst trees

And lush leaves, elaborately laced

Finally caught in your embrace


Until the next chase

      1. Welcome back and look forward to seeing the vibrant dreamer back. Take care of your mind, body and soul. Are you in your home country?
        Don’t think I told you that I’ve been there. Wasn’t there long enough to take enough pictures but I must look for what I have.

    1. I’m sorry, I can’t do that thing that Lady G does. I’m old fashioned when it comes to all the abbreviations but I can assure you that I’m having a good laugh at your response. OK take a deep breath now. You can rest awhile before the next chase 😀 Thank you for the compliment, I’m a very experimental writer – so I was having great fun hopefully helping you all create your own pictures in your minds. Now you write very well, can I challenge you to write a poem sometime? I think everyone has a poem in them 😅😅

    1. Just kidding! I loved it too…I couldn’t help wondering if you are self taught or if you have had any formal schooling.

      I ask because your use of metaphor is astonishing!

      1. I once did my time teaching English Seniors. Of course teaching and writing as an artist are two different things. When I read my stuff I realise though that metaphors or any other figures of speech are drawn from life experience, knowledge of all sorts of things and then rolled up with creativity and imagination. One day, when I can convince you to write a poem, we should try writing a poem on the same topic and our metaphors and content will be very different 🙂

      2. That makes a lot of sense.
        Poem? Heck I still gotta do my sexy male singer list. I have not forgotten my friend!
        Go forth and enjoy your day!
