POETRY SPOTLIGHT: Kaitlynzq on Love

Hi, readers! We have a real treat in store for you today, a poetry spotlight. In these poetry spotlights now and in the future, we will be showcasing poetry by some very talented poets. These poets have graced us with their presence.  

With us today is poet and author Kaitlynzq. Here is a little taste of her poetry...  




Love is the underscore that is woven in all of these poems.


As she walked to the vast vineyard

That reflected life’s potential

Quickly, a lavender rose draws her near

So close that her cheek receives a velvet kiss

As lavender makes its way into her basket

Joined by lavender, she approaches a poppy that called her name.

Gretchen, this sun painted flower bellowed.

And Gretchen knew this flower’s vibrancy was needed within her basket.

So, with a slight pluck of the stem, poppy was added.

“Oh my,” Gretchen voiced

Awe escaping her normally contained mouth

As her eyes landed on the hydrangeas

Adorned in the hue of an awakening sky

Without a doubt, hydrangea climbed in with lavender and poppy

The next flower whispered hello in its pink delicacy

And floated into her basket with a sigh of contentment

Then a pause in her merry stroll

Does she add more or is 4 enough

There’s magic in 5, she thought, so maybe one more

But,

Which

One

A slow scan

Searching for that one

When a magenta infused flower

Gave a majestic wave and inspired inclusion

Marveled by the many gifts from vineyard today

Gretchen headed home

For something else was needed

Although she wasn’t quite sure how

For how does she add herself

She doesn’t want to remain just on the sidelines

Observing

Then, with a giggle she knows

Mustering her courage, she stands before these beautiful 5

And begins to sing

With arms suspended over head

The pointed toe extends, stretching

Hold. Hold. Hold.

Lowered to the ground with a sigh of relief

Before turning for all to see

Shock waves blow. To where, I don’t know

Inhale

Exhale

Now toe, tap, tap, tap, tap

Tap. Shuffle. Tap. Shuffle.

Tap

Shuffle

Tap

Shuffle

Tidal waves roll. To where, I don’t know

Inhale

Exhale

The toe shimmies, spins, glitters

As it’s met by another toe

Quiet waves ripple. To where, I don’t know

Inhale

Exhale

With arms suspended over head

The pointed toe extends, stretching

Hold. Hold. Hold.

Lowered to the ground with a sigh of relief

Before turning for all to see

essential chord

central chord

vocal heart

new, unfamiliar, and yet, I know

a paintbrush, most delicate of touch

along the fabric of an instruments strings

to know you, my love

dream, real, are both possible

real dream are both possible

rhythms within a teardrop

and

light

deep

deeper

chord

invite-in



[an excerpt from the first poem that begins the layers for one of my stories in progress, Water Whispers audio poem https://kaitlynzq.com/water-whispers-audio-poem]
 



She sits waiting

Unaccompanied on the wooden bench

Looking to one side then another

Glimmers of hope that maybe of the many that stream by

One will see her

As those many eyes almost land on her

But never fully

The glimmer of hope

Fades into the worn fabric of exhaustion

“What about me?” she whispers.

Dejected, wilted she’s about to leave

When the side mirror catches a glimpse

The slightest shimmer

But, from where?

Captivated, she draws nearer

Closer to mirror than she’s ever gone before

“Oh”, she gasps as she marvels

At the beacon of light that allures her to intimate nearness

Another gasp escapes her lips

As the dawn of realization occurs

“That’s me, I see with substance inside.”

Poet Bio
I currently live in Elk Grove, California. My fictional stories are written from the inside view of a character’s interior heart-

that
beautiful, vulnerable, intimate space
feelings, desires, needs, dreams

a blend of

delicate feather ripples of heart waves
needs, feelings, dreams, desires
quiet, gentle heart strings
tender, continuous
soft, vulnerable air mist
circles, weaves to caress
a sonic sea of heart’s breath

Woven into audio books that are recorded in my voice with a medley of music as a heart’s wave into downloadable MP3 files; audio plays adapted from the audio books, and layered into PDF files like a heart’s song; audio poems that are multiple poems designed to connect to form a story as a heart’s breath; and audio sets that are sets of these interconnected stories with elements from each story that interweave in one another as heart’s wave, heart’s song, heart’s breath.
