Friday Blog Review~Week 17~ The Unknowngnome Poems

This week I am bringing you another one o fmy favorite poets/blogger. I have come across this blog during the times I have been part of Poetry Potluck/Picnic challenges on a Monday.
I introduced this weeks talent as The unknowngnome .

There isn't much on this bloggers About Me, but I can just give some on how i have perceived this amazing author. There is one quote that truly express something unique about this blogger and blog.

Clarissa Pinkola Estés

"Some people mistake being loving for being a sap. Quite the contrary, the most loving people are often the most fierce and the most acutely armed for battle... for they care about preserving and protecting poetry, symphonic song, ideas, the elements, creatures, inventions, hopes and dreams, dances and holiness... those goodly endeavors that cannot be allowed to perish from this earth, else humanity itself would perish..." - from The Dangerous Old Woman audiobook

Her Blog

You can find her on twitter go directly to her blog page and follow her either on blogger or twitter. The blog has the theme of the Gnome as this is a very unique name to give to an poetry blog, but the work is more than what the Title says. Her inspiration comes from Love,Faith & Nature.

One poem I truly love is the one about the balad, I have always watch these plays on television growing up, but what she wrote in this one and where her inspiration came from must be of her kind intuitive nature.

Xisca y Aina
(Les Sylphides)

as is fate
and late arrivals in life
treasures of surprise
arrive with awe and wonder.
such she too.
a shyly sylph,
a ghost girl,
a wraith draped
twin of grace
and just as lithe
as thus afloat
ascensional breath
her laughter
but a free-fall
butterfly aflutter
in very fairylike flight.

a wisp
a purr
a curvature
her pulling up aplomb
pulls me in
firm as peacock plumage
there to quiver
not of cold
but of that belief
that holds no brevity.

how is one to dismiss yes
from such blessedness
and bleedings en pointe
and the sweet blissful
disciplines of her devotion?

let it be counted all joy,
for even yet her sprightliness
lingers in ebb
ebulliently abloom
shimmering in the fading
of her four part ballet for two.
