Villanelle “Romantic Spirits Intoxicating Our Senses” by David Ellis

I’m rather enjoying the Day 05 Villanelle poems for the #NaPoWriMo challenge I spotted this by David Ellis and simply had to share. “Romantic Spirits Intoxicating Our Senses” by David Ellis from 2017 Visit David’s blog link below to hear him read the poem.

Romantic Spirits Intoxicating Our Senses by David Ellis

The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force
Yet gentle grace, my perceptions of this world will never be the same again
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

Romantic spirits, intoxicating to our senses from the core to the source
Sweeter than shared strawberries, dipped in the finest champagne
The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force

You are the quiet reflections found in books, the most enticing of all plots
Your language is all your own, an elegant quill inking ideas in golden rain
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

Strength of character and courage under fire leads to a desire overdose
Gorgeous, grounded and gifted, you sparkle in ways invoking euphoric élan
The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force

Indulgence of inspiring minds once separated, now focused and on course
Genuine warmth, vibrant excitement, mere words never come close enough to explain
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

There is no caution to the wind or choice of remorse
Your tenderness is ruthless, with you, life is anything but mundane
The electric thrills of your kisses collide with such divine force
All-consuming are these moments, ravished by passionate thoughts

Hello and welcome to all of the poetry action you can ever handle! (And then some)

It’s Day Fourteen of NanoPoblano AKA National Blog Posting Month (but with a really big serving suggestion of Cheer Peppers!) and I’m back with yet another video to bring joy to the masses.

Check out the Facebook Live performance of my latest poem.

My inspiration for this particular poem came in the form of a style called a ‘villanelle’ (which sounds suspiciously to me like a saucy young french female villain but of course it isn’t that at all, which is a shame, as I needed an excuse to brush up on my French).

The composition of a villanelle consists of five tercets (stanzas of three lines) followed by a final quatrain (which is four lines long).

(Also these terms sound far too much like gym routines for comfort and have already got me sweating…

At the End of the Summer print wrap_

At the End of the Summer by June Moonbridge

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 1st May 2018

Joshua’s life as a rock guitarist seems like a dream come true. Sold out concerts, red carpet events and wild nights portray him as a confident young man with the world at his feet. Only few friends know the scars he carries.

When freelance photographer Caroline meets the rock band Burning Ruins at the after party, an irresistible chemistry of attraction between her and the sexy rock guitarist is clearly seen to everybody. However, after a forced conversation from Joshua’s side, Caroline’s convinced the attraction is not mutual.

Waking up the next morning, Caroline has no idea what happened. She flees out of the hotel room mortified, convinced she’d become another of the band’s trophies. Determined never to meet anyone from Burning Ruins ever again, she has no clue people around her have different ideas.

In a summer that takes them from London to Wales and to the sultry heat of Rome, they’re desperately fighting their demons from the past, while trying to protect their broken hearts. Will they ever let each other mend their broken hearts or will they try to heal them alone?


About June Moonbridge

June Moonbridge ~ aka ~ Petra Rovere

June was born in June and she always loved the moon. She comes from Slovenia, a country in the middle of Europe.

She studied economics, and quickly realised she hated it. Afterwards, she found herself working in mainly male-dominated businesses; at first in automotive and later steel products. She can choose the best steel for your project, but don’t, please don’t, ask her which lipstick brand you should use.

She started to write in high school and was criticised by her teacher. Stubborn as she is, that didn’t stop her. Under different pen names, she had stories published in magazines, and then went on to publish three books.

After having two children, and learning that her second child has autism, she married their father and carried on working. Work and family life left her with little free time. But the desire to write didn’t die.

 When life somehow sorted itself out, she challenged herself to write a novel in English and her first submissions were rejected…

For what happened then, re-read the third paragraph, second sentence above…

 Since then she has published two novels: All that the Heart Desires and Caught Between Two Worlds are both stand alone and can be found on Amazon Worldwide, currently on discount or you can read them for free on KU.

All That the Heart Desires

Hearts Desire

Not your ordinary romance novel.

A vacation on the shores of the Egyptian Red Sea was Veronica Blake’s long lasting dream.

But dreams turn into nightmares. Controlling boyfriend Peter complains and embarrasses her frequently in front of everybody from the start. A trip to the ancient sites turns into a disaster. But the salvation comes in the form of the mysterious Nicholas, a blue-eyed man she remembers from the hotel.

Deep in the Sahara desert Veronica encounters a totally different way of life. She desperately seeks the truth about everything that happened. Alone and afraid of her new written future she finds consolation with Nicholas, the only man she’s left to trust.

Will she ever accept the truth she seeks, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Will she be able to find a way back to the life she was forced to leave behind?


Caught Between Two Worlds

Caught between Two WorldsAt twenty-five, Desire Hart has experienced enough grief for a lifetime.

Changing everything in her life – her identity, her hometown and her country of residence, Desire is determined that nothing will prevent her achieving from finding her missing son. Not even love.

On a spring evening, she meets the golden boy of F1 racing, Lorcan Shore, and finds herself falling for him. Struggling to suppress her feelings, she realises he could help her get closer to the child she believes is her long lost son.

But nothing goes according to plan. Her identity is revealed by the press, Lorcan has a terrifying accident, and the trail to her son finishes in another dead end. So Desire does what she does best – she runs away.

Set against the glamorous backdrops of Monaco, Paris and Nice, ‘All That the Heart Desires’ mixes romance and mystery as Desire struggles to come to terms with her past.

Will she learn to accept love into her life again?
