There was sweat on my brow, beads of them as I approached her. I was a young man, still green. She was a mature woman like the long blades grow free in the lush of nature. My hand in hers she took me into her warmth. Nervous, shy you could hear grass grow in the quiet of my fear in the silence of my lust. I knew nothing. As we rolled in the dew of sex as I fumbled and groped, I in some instinctive wisdom entrusted myself fully to her. She set our bodies in a fluid motion my virginity now neatly cut. We spent days as I explored the fresh sweet air of 'us'. It was then I became a man. Learned how you hold a flower how you manicure the stem how you water the soil how you delicately hold the petals. It was then I became a gardener. A gardener worthy to tend a garden so vital. It was then I learned how to love a woman. 30~12~2014 Armand

I love this imagery: "Learned how you hold a flower how you manicure the stem how you water the soil how you delicately hold the petals. " Have a great new year, Maurice!

An excellent poem by which to bid goodbye to the old year, Armand! I can relate to that mature woman! A moment in time which you still manage to hold on to (back to previous poem:)) #7 All the best to you!! // paul

Subtle, sexy and sublime, a throwback to the time, of someone's coming of age, lovemaking, controlled rampage! Happy New Year, lord of surrender, garden and flower, from your fan and reader...Kim Patrice :)
