That Twinkle in her Eyes is Magic

 

Buried,Two dear husbands,Five years ago they say,Holding back unspent daily tears,She sighs.

The following piece of poetry was inspired by my working as a lingerie stylist at Rigby and Peller.

It’s a Cinquain  which I discovered about on Poetry Zone.
A Cinquain has twenty-two syllables in five lines (two, four, six, eight and two).

Here’s the full poetic story:

 

That Twinkle In Her Eyes is Magic

Buried,
Two dear husbands,
Five years ago they say,
Holding back unspent daily tears,
She sighs.

It weeps,
Her loneliness,
Pressing to her breast bone,
Tender solar plexus aching,
Poor Dear.

Adjust
Her shoulder straps,
So they don’t dig so much,
It’s my job, but it’s more than that.
Much more.

Offer,
Her tea, coffee,
Water, no saccharin,
She only wants love, and lovers,
Listen.

Drinking,
Every word,
I gulp down her sweet life.
Thirst-quenching her lonely sorrow.
I see.

Her friend,
Met on a bus,
A random meeting place,
A common thread both are widows,
Both lost.

They found,
One another,
Instantly became friends,
A little lighter, the laughter,
Became.

Curtains,
New silhouette,
Her friend gasps, ‘Beautiful.’
She says it and really means it.
I smile.

Sometimes,
Words wrap heartache,
In kind tender tissue,
To keep a safe, invincible.
Parcel.

Shining,
Her reflection,
Glows with vivaciousness,
Twinkle eyed desire, magic,
Captured.

Husband,
Third time lucky,
He’s on his way to her,
Doesn’t know it yet but he is,
Old news.

Even,
If he’s younger,
He’ll not dare outlive her,
I see her living ninety plus.
Diva.

A fact,
Not a figment,
Of some kind of fiction,
Clearly have it all figured out,
No chance.

I am,
Spellbound and lost …..

In her new reflection,
The mirror shines with glowing praise.
It basks.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. Such a clever poem Marje. Most enjoyable and I would imagine tedious to not only write but making sure the syllables are just right. 🙂
