for Anna across the world, to have a cuppa with me and linger in poetic words, like the old days. pls forgive the formatting that i cannot fix on this site.

The Festival of Adonis
The Summer Triangles plummet from a blackberry sky.
The lazier stars simply chameleon against the midnight,
foretelling of the cold coming. We wrap ourselves in mint
leaves and melted chocolate licking each other and smiling.
Our Autumn mudslide rolls into Winter and your Adonis shoulders
triangulate my Aphrodite navel and we are an open cluster of night
diamonds. The blueberry veins of your Magellanic neck churn
territorially and I wrap my legs to the small of your back. A
waterfall of stars pours from you into me and we bite and
 worship each other like black bears in Spring attending
The Festival of Adonis.

Hey, Peach. Been a while. As always with your poetry, I want to hear it read aloud. Love this, though and great to hear your words again x

Here it is in voice! If I were to describe the size of my grin at the notification of your comment, it would be the distance of Canada to Greece. I've so many friends on this site who have established a writing path for me, that I am grateful like no one's business. You all charm me and in return, my writing grew. Love across the world.

I have missed your sexy mix of words, images, sheer POETRY

So slow am I to chase a moonbeam these days and radiate a half smile (OK sometimes a grimace )upon Booksie that others saw this first!

From my "old" haiku:

Chatting with old friends
Sipping sweet cappuccino
Mellow bake my soul

Love Anna x x
