Poem -

A Violet Vibrant Twist

A Violet Vibrant Twist

As the twist in the vibrant
Sounds of familiar threads
Coursed through the rooms of familiar memories
Memories of music moving through
The seventies and eighties
Suddenly congealed
And took me back
To the fumbling fingers
And the women who used to be
So damn important
So mesmerizing
In their inappropriate attire
Like the shining of hope
Of what life may have to offer
May bless me with one day
May stand up and take my breath away
Leaving me writhing on the floor
And knocking on the door
To the room's vibrant twist
With the smells of sweat and beer
Leaving a perfectly clear
Violet vision
Of a vibrant twist
From the old jukebox
Those long-lasting smells from the dive bar
Could set a soul on fire
And bring a man to his knees
Deep within the memories
Of a vibrant violet twist
From the music of days gone by
And the idea of remaining
Deep within
Those incredibly reflective
Recollections
That help me recall the smile
That first created
My passion for words and music
Which today
I willingly refer today
As,
A vibrant,
Violet,
Twist.....

Hi Sweet T...I always loved the club scene with dancing and loud music....Those were the days!  Lol  I wish I could have seen you DJ in your day....and to be a part of your world then...but this shows how it influenced your life and made you the writer you are today...ever influenced by music and lyrics....the vibrant life of the scene expressing this in your poem.  Perfect picture you chose to show that life coming alive in your words as well.  Such a creative title and way of describing that celebratory time in life.  Enjoyed, love.... Kisses xoxxxxx C

From the music of days gone by
And the idea of remaining
Deep within

Just as I told Cherie only moments ago, Tony, one does not acquire over seven hundred followers...anywhere! ...for no reason at all.
Only through hard work and exceptional writing is such an accomplishment possible.
Now, I am not at all sure what a "VIP" status means here at Cosmo. But I'll wager it has something altogether to do with the aforementioned positive traits I pointed out.

Believe it or not, even though I was a child of seventies and eighties, I was never into Disco. While all my friends were hitting on girls at the discotheques and skating rinks, I was wearing boot cut blue jeans, leather jackets, and white t-shirts while playing my saxophone in a rock band called buZZSAww.
Excellent write, my friend...

My Dear Brother Poet Tony,

The place where lonely Souls would meet
Dancing partner, them to greet
The music from a great rock band
The promise of a one night stand

.
The morning next, when they awake
Each others numbers they both take
But the scraps of paper soon disappear
Twas only lust, not love endeared

Peace, Love, and Forevers,
Larry xxx
