Tea For Two

I love to watch the tilt of your tender-tipped fingers
cupping the teacup's rounded heat,
the way you would gently cup my breasts,

your hands coiled lovingly around their warmth.
The roil of boiling water, the fluid swirl
of aromatic amber flowing over delicate flowers

as spiralling steam scents the room sensual,
rose-redolent and perfumed with jasmine flowers.
Lustrous light turns the day liquid: our private gilded hour.

Lemon sunlight slivers sharpen our eyes to each other.
Your fingers move with practised, deft fluidity,
absently caressing the chintzy china;

the air heavy with heady scents of the orient,
a tingling-brisk kiss of bergamot upon your lips.
I watch you lingering, filtering the fragrant leaves,

your fingers frisking the fragile porcelain,
florid and swelling with heat;
your lips dipping to sip sugared gold.

    Your eroticism is subtle, but telling. One cannot help liking it. You also seem to be the dominant mistress of alliteration. The further I go into your work, the more taken I am.

    Okay, you made tea hot. I mean really hot. Charlotte, this is rich! loved private guilded hour. Sugared gold... also really resonates. I've been meaning to stop by for days. It's 12:30 at night and I'm so sleepy I'm dizzy, but I had to say, thank you for all your kind comments. I shook when you compared my free verse to Sylvia's, as I know that like myself you are an honest poet. You made my day, and what you shared brought me a new understanding, too. Back to you, this should place high! xox

    AWESOME, Charlotte. I just know this one is going to get a TOP spot. About the sexiest thing I 've seen yet. Just what Nette ordered. Too bad I didn't think of something like this. I honestly could not think of "objects" to talk sexy about but the cup of tea is perfect!!!
