#OctPoWriMo Day 10-Dancing On Air

I apologize for not posting and keeping up with the poetry challenge as well as I should. Life has interfered, as usual, and I have been called away to deal with a sick little boy and then to catch whatever it is he had. It’s left me fatigued and exhausted as he was unable to sleep most nights due to coughing attacks and needed medicine in the middle of the night. But he’s back to almost 100% now and hopefully I will be on the mend soon. I do feel well enough to post my Day 10 poem for the prompt Dancing On Air.

I don’t think that one needs any explanation. The suggested form was a Con-Verse, a rhyming syllabic-metered poem.

Hope you are all well and enjoying nice autumn weather.

<3 Jesi

 

Rhapsody

By Jesi Scott

 

 

One-two-three, one-two-three, one…

Just like that it has begun.

 

One small glance in each direction,

Euphoria-laced confection.

 

Suddenly, we have become obsessed

And walk around like one now possessed

 

Having drunk ambrosia from Love’s own cup

And feasted with Joy: now we offer up

 

That which belongs to Delight and Ecstasy.

We dance together in pleasure, breathlessly,

 

Soaring among the clouds -with rapture we are crowned-

Until once again our feet touch upon the ground.

Jesi Kay
Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    1. Thank you, love. I’ve been *mostly* staying in bed and the days have been cold and rainy so it made it feel nice and cosy which helps on a sort of emotional level. Very relaxing, even if physically I feel miserable. But another couple of days and I should start feeling better. It takes about a week to run its course.
