your clavicle was the horizon
that i steered towards
when your ocean waves
desired for me to
rest upon your seabed.

in stillness,
you fed me nectar
and let my roots
cling onto your

in silence,
you let me trace
all possible paths
from your sternum
with orchids & kisses.

in tsunami;

you were the isles
that my songbirds
flew hundreds of miles
to perch upon,

when i realized
i was never taught
how to calm the sea.

    Mark knows how to metaphorically swoon the reader within his poetry and within this poem selected!

    Each stanza is filled with such visuals, its breathtaking! However the reader can manage to understand the meaning without getting lost in the metaphor and I admire and love that! This poem is beautiful!

    Judging Comment:

    This write captures the audience from the first line, it is catchy, eloquent, and extremely well presented. The audience can imagine and see everything about this piece clearly, but they can also form their own spin or interpretation of each and every stanza. The style of this is very typical for Senyru, but it never fails to intrigue the audience and is filled with incredible uses of vocabulary. This is the kind of writing many aspire to, and as such, it deserves an honorable mention at the very least.

    I may be wrong but the first time I read this piece I felt the warmness of the sensuality hidden behind metaphors and certain unusual body parts. It has less words but is very descriptive of the flow of discovering your lover, and wanting to explore. Making sense out of everything about it and realising that you don't have to, but to savor the moment.

    I maybe wrong, but that's how I see it. Great write from you sir. Salute!
