Feeling Golden

Unhooking my bikini, I fall in to Utah Lake; it’s thirteen years ago! I’m naked, and the sun - incarnadine - like me, has also slipped itself down low, (though into dusk), while, I -in water -glow! My arms are freckle-speckled, lightly tanned. Beneath my skin I’m feeling golden, and my breasts are buoys, round and pearly white. My legs kick strongly; they are lean and grand; I’m sturdy - yes - but now I’m sweetly light! For Cyndi MacMillan's YOUR BIRTHDAY SUIT Poetry Contest

    hello andrea! this one is so deserving of 1st place, I love it, some very vivid descriptions - "freckle-speckled", "breasts are buoys, round and pearly white" - and that word INCARNADINE, I don't recall hearing it before, I must look it up...busy and taking a break from poetry at the moment, dealing with health and marriage problems alas...

    Hi Andrea, I am reading this for the second time and it remains wonderful, would you go and read my poem Bella, Bella, Bella and give me your opinion, not a single person left a comment and I am thinking perhaps it is no good, I value your opinion very much. of course only if you have time.

  1. Date: 4/28/2012 12:08:00 AM

    "my breasts are buoys" - ok, I am going to behave, Andrea. Great take on Cyndi's contest. Lovely details. I love skinny dipping. You still work out your legs? Mine are still like trees. Hmmm, wonder how soft I might be at your age? Better keep working out. I saw your comment on my "May" poem. The Baobob/Africa line is part of our imagination as Canada. Yes, in Canada :D You know, one day the tree might have been a rocket; the next day, a pirate ship, etc....

    It was getting dark and hubbie and I were the only ones on the lake (at least in that area of it) Otherwise, I would never have been so daring! It really feels good to just kick around in the nice cool water that way middle of summer!

    that's what we call a deliberate fall!!

    Oh the freedom to be nude, It is like shedding civilization! Love the descriptions you do so well; all the best in the contest Andrea (book sent Monday)

    Too bad she made this contest just in Dizain. I really wanted to enter but I got muddled up in the scheme. You gotta be careful about those birds over head. :)
