‘Quintessensual’ brings together twenty-five poems expressing the diversity and range of the five senses. Some poems are light-hearted, even comic, whilst others are more serious. The five senses are how we experience life itself, and in this collection of poems, life is captured and celebrated, as a source of wonder and creative inspiration, hence its title.
Ollie Lambert is a sixteen-year-old poet from Sussex. His poetry writing stemmed from a love for music and song-writing in particular. He found that his lyrics took the form of poetry in many respects so decided to try his hand at some poetic pieces. To get criticism on his work he joined a writing site, where he received feedback and help on refining his poetry technique. Ever since he has won competitions for his poetry, website, and his work online in general. Although his age may be considered a disadvantage, he see’s it as an opportunity to learn from others and hopefully by starting out young, his writing journey will become an extended one.

Mouth that moisten my mouth
You are murmur that draws me
to your feverish elixir, captive premise
of pure life, a rumor that returned.
Mouth that settles in my mouth
flavor and blush on the cheeks
You are the smile that fell silent
and immortal seal when vanish.
Mouth poured over my body
intense fire and water of tears
deep ravine wherein I sink
amongst fruition and bitter kisses.
Mouth, your lips belong to me!
moistened with wine and honey,
where mysteriously settled the love
you poured stealthy over my body.
Boca que humedeces mi boca
Tu eres murmullo que me arrastra
a tu elixir febril, premisa cautiva
de pura vida, rumor que retornó.
Boca que se posa en mi boca
sabor y rubor en las mejillas.
Eres la sonrisa que enmudeció
y sello inmortal cuando desvaneces.
Boca derramada sobre mi cuerpo
fuego intenso y agua de llanto
hondo barranco en el que me hundo
entre la fruición y besos amargos.
Boca, me pertenecen tus labios!
humedecidos por el vino y la miel,
donde se poso misterioso el amor
que derramaste sigilosa sobre mi cuerpo.
