Cobalt Summer

Down there, on the shell-coarse beach in a furnace of sand The sea writhed and almost boiled at the shore, Barefoot we walked, with her hand in my hand No girl had ever driven me more. She dry-licked her cherry lips and saltily smiled, Solar flares bursting there in my chest, The way she moved always drove me wild, My eyes entranced by her shape in that dress. The sun stamped in the sky like a chromium plate, Dripped the colours of butter and steel, And she stood there the most, the coolest hot date, So radiant and still and surreal. When she threw back her head as she lay on the grass Liquid eyes burning silver and green, With the parting of lips she gave me a free pass And the world dissolved to aquamarine.

    this poem oozes sensuality, Tony. I am here at the bequest of frank Herreira(Probably spelling it wrong) who told me I should look you up. YOu must be one of his greatest favs ever on this poetrysite. I am new here and I bet you are a great writer if the majority of your poems are like this one. HOpe you can write again soon. I know how it feels to be out of the loop! andrea
