“Let the poetry of Annette Marie Smith brighten up your holiday season!”
I would love to get this book as a Xmas present, Holiday present, Happy New Year present, Birthday present, or even a Hey, I Was Just Thinking of You present! Does it matter that I am the author of this book, the poet who penned the lines in it and have a, some would say, vested interest in this book? No! I am just keeping it real and letting you know that this book, full of beautiful love/lust poems, is available IN PRINT now! The artwork is stunning and the whole, artistic cover and literary contents, comes highly recommended by me.
It’s the full Cold Moon tonight.
She is fat with the satisfaction of her cold light.
She is fecund with frosty happiness.
The clouds are slips of lace, mere lingerie,
and the night watches transfixed as she lets them drift away.
She pulls the night in closer,
as if he is the tide at her command.
And in a way he is, this lover of hers
who is always with her –
and stirs her darker side.
The moan that she rouses in him
is the true origin
of the first wolf’s howl
and in this way too they are always paired.
Longing made manifest
in the soul song of one of earth’s best creatures
is their gift to each other–
that and their child
that they both dote on
known as Lunacy.
The light and the dark and the passion make
a beautiful sorcery. — From “Tell the Bees” by Annette Marie Smith
