Writers Island " Untamed Soul"


Photo by Bryan
After various snow warnings we finally got dumped on! Oh how I love the fluffy wonder of Snow! The cleanliness, the magic, the brightness!

Bryan snapped a photo of this jogger in spandex and labeled it "Perseverance " I thought it to be quite appropriate for todays post!

Writers Island Prompt for this week is "desire", which I already covered in the previous post, so I decided to write a poem about the persistence of desire!


Persistence

Desire leashes the untamed soul

Luring it to unfettered places

Wagering absolution

For the covert hedonist

Raunchily consumed by irrationality

Each moment of wanton

Flaming a larger craving

Until the cavernous charge

Seizes absolute control

Demanding execution

Torturing the impassioned

Cruelly tormenting

With baited envy

Compelling pleasure

To sully its stasis

Oh wow! To sully its stasis is inspired. So is baited envy. Nice stuff.

Aloha Sherri..
Ok, maybe this is weird.. I was reading your poem and suddenly got the song, *Funky cold Medina* stuck in my head, so I was humming it while re-reading your words and then I scanned down to the mugs and got interested in those..
Then I came back to this post and forgot completely what I wanted to say..
Maybe if I just say.. You're wonderful and I'm glad you're my friend, that will cover it.. :)
PEace n love, Kai xx

desire can be very persistent. I love your first photo of the snow. We had our first real snow for years earlier this month...

You used so many fine phrases that my eyes are still wide! Really cool stuff - ran a gamut of thought... Glad you like snow...we have over 4 feet now, shoveling off roofs is a good thing and my driveway is blocked by a huge berm of ice. So. I'm waiting for cabin fever. LOL Great poem! Nifty pictures!
