Lips of fire - The crown of my body

                 A small boy
              stared at my lips
               And ran miles
              screaming loudly
                 to his mom.
              He pointed out,
    ‘Look mom, she has lips of fire!’

                 I then turned.
            The woman laughed
               when she saw
               my red lipstick
                 sizzling hot.
             And that sums me –
         …I'm miss-interpreted...

    I am certain that all of the Godesses of the Ages sympathize with this playful expression - Lips of fire can heal or burn - thanks for being true - J.A.B.

    HOW CUTE. So you were using hot red lipstick even as a child. I am a more demure pink. I just love light rose and pink colors!

    It's a kiss that does not burn the lips but definitely can start a spark at the hips....All have their own perceptions now don't we? Peace and much love...along with those blessings.
