Inspirational Poetry: Where Are You?

This week's inspirational poetry: Where Are You?

I'm inspired by creativity in all corners of the world but especially in nature, most especially London parks, the woods and beaches of East Sussex and, of course, Ireland. You'll find lots of poetry here on the blog and you can support me to write more, including some exclusively for you, on patreon (see below).

Inspirational Poetry: Where Are You?

Where are you? The splendor of creation awaits.
Beauty veiled, she dallies, playing with the wings
of birds passing, swaying her hips with the wind,
wanting to dance, to bring you music from planets
and clouds. Call her by right name, hear her answer.
Male or female, she is yours. See her
linger, singing and playing, holding out
her braceleted arms, all tinkle and glint.

She wants to roll ecstasy over and under
your skin, swirl bubblings into your blood, breathe
you away through the waves of the ages. You can stay
where you are (where are you?) and listen. No,
don’t even listen, just be quiet. Unmask, that is all.
She will offer herself, unasked and unasking. No
demands from her, ever, to know: where are you?
