Catching up

I posted on Facebook that “Poetry month is fun, but my goal is a poetry lifetime.” Isn’t that quaint? Of course, Shanna immediately Triple-Dog-Dared me to actually “do” the poetry month challenge. Here’s day 5….got some making up to do!

Tropical RainTropical Rain

In the velvet of dawn,
lips caress wet, sun-kissed skin.
Tongues intertwine
as morning glory vines.

Fingertips stroke a rhythm
against taut, silk drumhead
of thigh and belly and breast.
Toes touch. Sea meets sky.
Palms sway. A sigh of breeze.
A melody of sunlight.
A chorus of birdsong.
Earth and bloom rise
to greet the day.
