Poem… ¿what inspires me?

¿what inspires me?

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

island mountains against my small existence
a palm tree’s sensual sway
and the atlantic nights that drown my arrogance
caribbean breezes hissing through banana leaves their say
and the nostalgia of their vital scent from far away
the scorching sun against my skin over warm sands
while sea waves season me with foam and salt
and the way guava ignites the ocean’s salivary glands
the little frogs’ shrill song followed by their indiscretions
the moon’s kiss of rum and sugarcane
and night’s surrender to coffee passions:
the sweet and bitter darkness that humid skies can’t tame

¿what inspires me? will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–


Poem… As I Kiss Your Mouth

As I Kiss Your Mouth

(translation|modification of Al Besar Tu Boca)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Over Caribbean sand, I lay your frozen body
so the sun can punish your naked skin.
Over your soul, I lay my expectant body
and your breasts rise as I kiss your mouth.

The seductive surf coats us with its foam.
Running through you,
the sea’s waves spark a frenzy of tremors.
Your breasts rise as I kiss your mouth.

Pressed against warm sand…
The oceanic furor of you floating against my chest…
The pleasure of your waist extended over mine…
Your breasts rising as I kiss your mouth…

Hasten the sway of your waves.
Intensify the brushing against my skin.
Surrender your body in erotic homage.
Celebrate your rising breasts as I kiss your mouth.

Poem… Book of Spells | page six | North Star of the Deep Black Sky


by Luis S. González-Acevedo…

Book of Spells

Page Six

North Star of the Deep Black Sky

Sacred Book of Spells do conjure
from death true lovers’ fate
severed by the ocean’s torture.
I pray: “New bonds of loving lust create.”

Call upon these gentle spirits and let them fly,
so the legend of their lust & love ablaze
becomes the North Star of our deep black sky.
I pray: “Their lustful love, do save.”

Book of Spells

Page Five

I.

Prince Connell’s Grave

The book you seek
and the one who benefits from its spells
await at the stony feet
of royalty, protected by Prince Connell’s
Grave. The love & lust of lovers’ fate
severed by an ocean –the Book of Spells may save.

II.

Stonehenge

Within the field and meadow
of an ancient forest passed
lies Stonehenge, megalithic echo
of heroic stories, songs and our immemorial past.

Among its magic stones recite
the final verses in the Book of Spells inscribed.
The wonderlust of love ignite
for those in love and severed by the sea’s divide.
