Intrigante (NaPoWriMo)

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-twenty-four-5/

Today’s (optional) prompt is to write a poem that, like “Dictionary Illustrations,” is inspired by a reference book. Locate a dictionary, thesaurus, or encyclopedia, open it at random, and consider the two pages in front of you to be your inspirational playground for the day.

This is my absolute favorite NaPoWriMo prompt!!  Last year I purchased a copy of the Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary, Deluxe 2nd Edition…for a mere $10.  So, responding to the prompt, I closed my eyes and opened it…landed in the middle of the “I’s”…where I spied a fabulous word, “Intrigante”—defined as, ‘noun, “a woman given to or involved in intrigue” (from French, fem. of  intrigant)’.  ENJOY! 🙂 Ennle♥

Every man noticed her…

Most, deep enthralled by her

Possibly even completely

In love with her…who was

That woman, gliding shadow

At twilight…dressed in smart

Midnight-hued satin attire…

‘Neath fedora with net veil

Raven hair swooped in twist

Off elegant neck, graced by

Glist’ning jet pendant, matched

Earbobs that swayed in gas

Lanterns like smoke.

What was her name? something

Foreign, exotic…it tripped on

The tongue when they tried to

Remember, fair swooned as they

Spoke it.  Oh yes, she provoked

Stunned reaction, hot quaking

As perfume trailed sensuous and

Silky, unfurling…yard after yard

Behind.  Her features were sculpted

Fine cheek bones and nose; forehead

Unlined and chin angled just so.

Mutelips tinted soft crimson…ahh

They left old men aching.

What was she doing there, clearly

Alone?  What manner of business?

Dark affair, schemer’s heart?  

She was painted in mystery…a

Masterful canvas they stared at

Insatiable, and hungered to own.  

But alas, Intrigante was enigma

unsolvable…by dawn she had

Vanished, in amethyst mist.

Endless horizon, stage

Set…sun, rain clouds paint

 Palette, backdrops for

Performances dawn to

Matinee, twilight drama…

Midnight’s stars, moon

Draw curtain on world’s

Theater…shade and shadow.

Storms coming, smell scent

In air…so many hues of blues…

Watercolors wash away, new.

Sheer gossamer haze

Horizon

Lavender boa, clouds amid blue…

Sky’s radiance subtle, honored Lady makes eagerly awaited entrance.

Today’s prompt: sandwich, cloud, legend

Sandwiched between clouds

Glorious

Rose-gold, raw crimson…kindled

Passionate hour before Twilight claims

Almost-end of writer’s day, legend tucked beneath birds’ wings.

Mermaids and More

Kat offers us another creative form to try in “found poetry” (aka “black out” poems).  Click the link above for more information on Kat’s post.  I’ve chosen the poem, “If You Have Seen”, by Thomas Moore…and have taken the words in BOLD to form a new poem.

If You Have Seen, by Thomas Moore

Good reader! if you e’er have seen,
When Phoebus hastens to his pillow
The mermaids, with their tresses green,
Dancing upon the western billow:
If you have seen, at twilight dim,
When the lone spirit’s vesper hymn
Floats wild along the winding shore:
If you have seen, through mist of eve,
The fairy train their ringlets weave,
Glancing along the spangled green;–
If you have seen all this and more,
God bless me! what a deal you’ve seen!

Mine:

If you have seen mermaids…

Dancing at twilight dim

When lone spirit’s vesper hymn

Floats along winding shore

Through mist of eve…

You have seen this and MORE!
