Sample Poems below:
I combed my fingers
through corn silk hair
kisses and the breeze rippled
the deep pools
of liquid flesh
intoxicating as chardonnay.
The grapes hung
ripe on the hills
and the valleys sloped
into shimmering gold
Beneath the pumpkin moon's
spell I feast
in a canyon sweet
of fragipani and peppermint.
We clasped hands and slipped away
with the horses down the lane
into the meadow. Red-winged blackbirds
held chorus in the cattails
where the cattle drank. The creek had a rush
to compliment the laugh of the mallard ducks
and the air was abuzz with dragonflies.
I remember your face freckled and petite
as we knelt to pick orchids and kissed.
We snipped bouquets to freshen a nest
cradled in the limbs of an ancient tree; paradise
where carved our names and then sunbathed
bare naked, satiated and carefree.
