Sass In the Satin

I’m not often caught by surprise, used to be common til I

Drowned in men’s lies, and then you appeared before me

Like a cloud across the sky, better keep moving lest you

Get caught by surprise; see this Southern belle as a quest

You need to con, or fall for her completely…wouldn’t

That be fun? Oh geez don’t let my bud catch any of

Your dew, for the heart squeezes tight when it

Considers me and you; berries on the bush, yes

The temptation is one for the ages, whispering

“Live your truth” are the voices of the sages; and

We shall surely dance around this rhythm we

Know; marionettes flail their arms and legs

As we clap for the show; gentle is the touch,

Sweet your very taste, lustful on the vine,

Your hands are full of grace. Throw caution

To the Wind, let your freedom find a trail,

No justification needed when you

Set that final sail. This is but a rhyme,

Don’t be so morose, figure a bag of candy

Is sweeter than your prose, and just as I have you,

You’d surely take flight, as a bird with healed

Wings after a grounded fortnight.

  1. throwing caution to the wind, returns on the rolling surf, where we often walked hand in hand on the edge of the sea under the naked stars that stretch across an inky black sky of our imagination hidden from the poem-readers… careful not to drown in the salty spray, lest our berries be exposed and our escape to this poetic trail to sanctuary we all desperately need…

    Yes the poet’s pen is full of fire and spirit – very well written indeed! A true reflection of the poet’s desire to drown in an amazing world of words.

    Thanks for sharing, Sheila
