Souls would turn
And toss the phrase
Removed from spooning paradise
And the forbidden fruit of you
Made jam and in jars preserved
The caps of which I would twist off and scoop
On toast in retrospect
Such preserve as I am no longer privy to
As the skiff of your creamy face and crew
I was once made privilege to lap
Still I kiss you
Square and full in the sails
If only you knew
How in such as can recall
Your sails kiss mine squarely and fully in return
And the catamaran of your hips
Still move in concert with mine

To use some of your own words, Phil, never have I read such a romantic and lovely ode. 4 thumbs up sir from every direction of the wind.

A wonderful write which I assure you 'she' memorized and reread to all within earshot!

Just love this full course of images and playful sensuality. Thanks, Philip!

What a tasty course of images you give our imaginations! I love the way yours sails about grabbing and tasting and then preparing in the kitchen of your mind such a treat. Thanks Phil. It is so good to be back here and again be challenged by your beautiful poetic self.
