i can build a house

with the East wall looking to the future

the South made up of  the present

the West nothing but the past

the North facing infinite possibilities

and above a sky full of  stars

but it’s not a home

without you

∙ȶ∙₰∙∙∙ fascination ∙∙∙₰∙ȶ∙

we made iced coffees
and croissants with goat cheese and raspberry  jam
we ate on the balcony at the little table that let our knees touch

the birdsong our private symphony
you laughed at how i  pronounced chèvre
then said you adored me as i  blushed

even after all this time
the  fascination
still part of  the love

reaching out,  i  touched your cheek
you kissed my palm
we left the remains of  breakfast  for the birds

“Fascination”   André Rieu   { from “Love in the Afternoon }

“Fascination”  is a 1904 waltz song with music popularized in the 1957 movie  ‘Love in the Afternoon’  starring Audrey Hepburn and Gary Cooper. The song was recorded by Jane Morgan and became her signature song.  It was also recorded by Dinah Shore,  Dick Jacobs,  Nat King Cole,  Earl Grant and David Carroll.

lyrics ~

It was fascination,  I know
And it might have ended right then at the start
Just a passing glance,  just a brief romance
And I might have gone on my way empty-hearted

It was fascination,  I know
Seeing you alone with the moonlight above
Then I touched your hand and next moment I kissed you
Fascination turned to love

Ꮂ •Ꮗ• Ꮂ fallen angel {élargi}

•Ꮗ•

• Ꮗ •

i  recognized him as a fallen angel
from the singed tips
of  his still smoking wings,
a broken halo
lying on the ground

• Ꮗ •

the angel turned his head
i  saw the anguish in his eyes
no need for words
nothing  i could do
his banishment was final

• Ꮗ •

ah,  my love,  my fallen angel
would that  i could
heal  your wounded heart
what sin did you commit,  i wonder,
to be exiled from Heaven?

• Ꮗ •

did  you realize
you were standing at the crossroads?
was this your solitary crime?
or had you been warned not to continue
along  your path to self-destruction?

• Ꮗ •

i  hear your silent lament
your wretched soul
looking for salvation
too late….     too late….
your banishment was final

• Ꮗ •

ah,  my love,  my fallen angel
if  it were within my power
to gift you with innocence
would you so desire?
flying straight to Heaven
without a thought
for mankind?

• Ꮗ •

 mayhap a truer gift
would be a life here
on Earth
with me

Prompt No. 4:  Animal;   Form:  Concrete Poetry;   Device: Enjambment
for   Writing 201:   Poetry!
Blogging University Presented by
The Daily Post
on WordPress.com

at last!  a day when i  followed the prompt,  the form and the device!  although i  did stray to  “visual”  concrete poetry form { or poésie concrète in French,  i love the way that sounds }  rather than  “shape” ~ this happens to be my favorite poetry form plus i love the use of  enjambments.  i enjoy the form so much that it never matters to me if  what i write is any good or not.  {smile}  thank you,  Ben,  for such an exciting day of  writing!

this is my submission to  ~

Poetry Pantry #240    at    Poets United
submit a new or old poem

thank you,  Mary
