Earthy Love



We danced like dappled light through swaying trees on golden embers stoked with panting breeze in bed of canterbury red and phlox. As lusty wooing coos did float through morn love sounds of seventh heaven Sol did scorn; with scents and flames of burning equinox, our passion dimmed the jealous sun with ease.

Here I am in La-la land. Trying to figure out for what those mysterious letters stand. … I guess that'll have to await a soupmail date, eh? ~ Fate(fully) yours, Mr. Naked Pate (at least in my picture next to this bling-bling).

Oh silly Mr. Pate, or, err, Naked.. lol! The answers to the mysterious letters are right under your nose.. or... this comment.. lol! S-T-N: Second to None, Q-R-Q: Queen of the Romantic Quill, but the really tough one is C-C-C-C: Cleverest Cat in Culver City (from your reply to one of my comments on your poem 'He'd Have Been a Star'... and voila! Mystery solved :))
