What Some Summer Women Forget Before They Get Wet: Romantic Improv Blogging Sonnet

April 4, 2011

Why do women often make the choice,/
when they decide to go boating,/
to seek cabana boys/
before they go floating?/

Why do they forget the romance/
that penned words inspire?/
Why do they neglect the chance/
to, more deeply, feel the fire/

not of wood burning,/
(a mere throwing off flames),/
but setting their souls yearning/
for desires they won’t tame./

These women should be wise enough to know it:/
For inspirational revelry, they must bring the poet!

Why the Desire for Sparks from a Fire? A Romantic Poem

November 17, 2009

As I stoked a dying fire,
A warmth set to soon expire,
I added more fuel: dried wood.
Gave coals space to breathe, good.

And as I watched pine
Smoldering there,
Wood slowly warming,
Yearning for air,

It gave me pause;
Made me wonder why
Women look for passions’ cause
And ask for “sparks to fly”.

Sparks flying mean only
The flame’s been disturbed, goaded,
Kicked, poked, prodded, turned,
Or that super-heated sap exploded.

Instead shouldn’t they look for
The smoky, slowly-warming feat
That finally gasps air, and with a roar
Throws off constant, strong, radiant heat?

No sparks there
Kicked, thrust, thrown at random
Into the night air
With sudden, reckless abandon!

But rather glowing, red,
Steady, comforting heat.
Passions’ flame which, carefully fed,
Gives warmth that will repeat.
