Fay Slimm.

Who Said !


  Who Said !


Sky the shade of love beckoned

with sultry rapture

as our two night-driven ships

that crossed briefly

exchanged new fun of attraction.


Let who will condemn

              but desire repaired aging helms                  

and put passion in sails

drooping with fade 

while release flooded both decks.


Who said mature is too late !

    Mature can bring an extremely wonderful vintage Fay.

        Good write Fay.
        I won't say a swoony-type comment, as I've already got in trouble with Neville and a poem concerning a thumb! lol.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Thanks dear Orchi.

          I do not want to age like wine, only to be drunk at the end, or cheese that turns to mold, rather let me age like the mountains, strong and solid to the very end.
          Romance is good at any age, but love is handled best by experienced hands. - 'nuff said - Loved your poem.- Phil A.

          • Fay Slimm.

            I truly agree with your wise outlook on romance and experience Phil....... thanks for giving your viewpoint and for taking the time to read my few words.

          • L. B. Mek

            I like the jagged, sharp wordage you used purposely, poetry need not 'shout!' for it to express its passion -
            as you so brilliantly demonstrate

            • Fay Slimm.

              Grateful thank yous for your read and comment dear poet-friend. So pleased you like the form and tempo of Who Said !
