begins beneath the solar plexus
wherein the sun is lurking

ripples building outward tumbling then
like joyous sky flower bouquets bursting
bouncing out and over Rageous dancing

envibratising atmosphere
setting dual merriments
to impossible imbobblements

a jigglement
a bubblement
of gigglings intoxicant

this fantastical array my dear
has turned the sky monet

  1. That is a perfectly lovely image and rhyme and giggliness on a Monday morning. I need to read it fourteen times, I think… set me up for the day.

  2. Oh Paul, what a perfect, bouncing, colourburst of a poem! Love it.

  3. words sweet as honey

  4. brushstrokes, pigment and light, bright declaration in favorite native tongue, th sky is monet like gaugin telling it, i am amazed and so ditto ditto ditto the above and beyond wonderful

  5. Oh this is just so beautiful. Thank you for making my day.

  6. This is a delightful impressionistic viewpoem of the sky through the eyes of a happy person…

  7. A ping-pong of colour

  8. is this about sex again?! you’re going to have to post ratings next to the titles soon
    I don’t really like to say what they are about, Samantha. All interpretations are correct because the poem is not the arrangements of words on the page but the event in the reader’s mind. However the reader responds in fine by me. But this one did begin life as a poem about giggling and its effect on certain anatomies of great lusciousness. And the idea that we live in a particularly prudish society.

  9. Pure gingatao! Fantastical indeed – another one for the cork board in the office. When’s the next book coming out – I need to send relatives the cream of poetry for Christmas and gingatao is top of my list.
    I was just talking about the next book this morning, Gabrielle. It’s underway. I’m looking for a freelance editor. I still haven’t worked out this ‘answering all the comments thingy’. But I figure if I answer the ones that are questions and then just do a big thankyou! for all the the compliments at the end, that will be alright?

  10. Atmospherical Monet is so wonderful a meteorological phenomenon! and into poetry too, how lovely.

  11. I’m going to read it out loud and dance to it. Perfect.

  12. “A jigglement, a bubblement” and I’m smiling out loud! 🙂

  13. Smiling here too…almost expect you to jump & click your heels together. 🙂

  14. Wow… this was fun. thankyou! 🙂

  15. This leaves quite an impression. 🙂 Mentioning Claude was a triumphant ending.

  16. Wow! Thankyou everybody. Comments drifting down like a shower of stars, like soft rain on a summer day. It is such a joy to write for wonderful readers.

  17. And one more: this is beautiful, musical, and i love it.

  18. Ooooh, this one made me break out in shivers of delight. You have painted a picture with your words.

  19. My goodness, you’ve gone and done it again and floored me with your creative written talent. If I could steal some words and keep them forever in my heart I would choose these, ‘this fantastical array my dear has turned the sky monet’. My goodness is about all I feel capable of saying… INCREDIBLE Paul!

  20. In agreement with the 19 above, I love this rageous imbobblement of yours.
    long may you imbobble

  21. Beautiful Mister Squires. I am loving the picture painted in my mind’s eye.

  22. seems to me that you have accomplished~ what the advice was given.
    you made an ordinary life interesting.
    I liked the reading.

  23. oops so sorry- the comment was to go on the article above this.

  24. Whenever I come to your blog, I am stunned.
    I find myself sitting mute and still and stunned – almost afraid to read the next post because it might be even more dazzling.
    Dazzled by words, that’s me. Dazzled by so much creativity, such verbose verve that I must prepare my brain, my emotions, for the next punch.

    Tiny miracles indeed bloom here.

  25. very playful & gigglicious

    love especially the title (brilliant) and the closing (double brilliant)

  26. […] permutations of joy, who else would write such a thing but a mad man in love. I don’t care if it is a cliche. Nor […]
