Shelly's Blogfest - Vampire Dreams!

Shelly Brown is host to this wonderful mind-teasing poetry (whatever) blogfest! 

Vampire Dreams

In still of night and breathless fear, I hear my pounding heart;
A shiver… stilled in the gloom, clouds skitter past a silver moon

Oh snowy owl swooping past, and moon to light thy path,
How soon will he come, the deed to be done?

Power of attraction no dismiss, pure agony and ecstasy of untold bliss,
Life's potent wine the inner lust, give of blooded Nile I must.

Oh snowy owl swooping past, how long to frosted breath on air, sparkle in eyes and scintillating hair?

Come the moment, come the time, the crossing of forever line;
Moonbeams shall dance, and shadows quiver,

Oh snowy owl swooping past, how soon the shadowed wings, and instant sparkle of glittering ring?

Hear him now, footfalls on flagstones, a phantom of night; and I, to embrace his sensual rites and live the orgasmic dream!

oh this one is a serious departure from all the others I've read so far. It has a feeling like it's part of a larger story.

Great tension in this poem - all leading to a great climatic ending! Nicely done!

Exotic, hypnotic and erotic, Francine. I loved it.

Trisha said...

Wow...I love it! I think Ana's description is really accurate. Great job.

M Pax said...

Fabulous. You hooked me with that first line.

Ciara said...

Oh my! I'm no a poetry person but I LOVED that. Wow, that was fantastic.

Francine Howarth said...

Many thanks Kim, Ana, Trisha, M.Pax & Ciara, for stopping by to comment.

I loved writing this piece, and the vampire image has inspired the writing of historical vampire novella. ;)


Empty Nest Insider said...

Wow! Since I'm not a drinker or a smoker, I need to get my chocolate fix stat! You did an amazing job weaving a mulit-faceted tale! Julie

Kimberly Krey said...

You had me from the very first line. Such a dark and sensual tone - consistent and compelling to the end. I loved it! Glad to have found your blog. BTW, love the name or it!

Francine Howarth said...

Hi ENI & Kimberly,

Thanks for stopping by. This is such a fun blogfest!


Small Town Shelly Brown said...

Why are there not more poems about vampires? This is definitely something that the world needs more of!

I am SO glad you joined the party and brought your pale friend with you ;) He adds something that I didn't even know was missing!

Thanks for the entry. You rock!

Francine Howarth said...

Hi Shelly,

Thanks for holding the blogfest!

I wouldn't have written the poem, had it not been for the challenge of writing something different! ;)


Randy said...

Very beautiful, in a vampirish sort of way.

Angela Felsted said...

Goose bumps. Love the picture too.

Madeline Bartos said...

Oh wow, this absolutely gorgeous! I especially love the "Oh snowy owl swooping past, how long to frosted breath on air, sparkle in eyes and scintillating hair?" line. Beautiful entry.

julie fedderson said...

I can totally feel the anticipation, and vampire poetry? That's poetry I can sink my teeth into. LOL.

Francine Howarth said...

Hi Randy, Angela, Madeline and Julie,

Thanks for the wonderful comments. I really did enjoy writing this piece. ;)

cherie said...

A vampire poem! Loved the mood and atmosphere in this one. ;)

Francine Howarth said...

Hi Cherie,

Thanks for stopping by. You're right, I guess mood and atmosphere is what we expect with a movie, and writing can be a movie in words! ;)


Ellie Garratt said...

Vampire poetry - what more could we want? Beautiful and tense at the same time. Loved it!

Francine Howarth said...

Thanks Ellie, and I confess I'm glad I ventured to the dark side! ;)


Small Town Shelly Brown said...

I'm so flattered I inspired you to stretch yourself! Because you did awesome!!!

Francine Howarth said...

Hi Shelly,

Believe it, I love stretching my imagination and the flexing of writing muscle... ;)

As I said before: so glad you held this blogfest!
