Premium Member He Touched Her


He mentioned that she was beautiful.
He mentioned, perhaps too eagerly,
that she was kissable.

He touched her
(as he would any work of art)
needing a tactile communion.
He simply wanted to curve
where she curved,
to hold lightly the blessing.

She pulled away affronted.
She cell phoned her...Read More

He touched her
(as he would a sculpture)
needing a tactile communion.
He simply wanted to curve
where she curved,
to hold lightly the blessing.

She pulled away affronted.
She phoned her attorney.
She threatened harassment.

Odyssey from Africa 8a
CHAPTER 8 Two Paths
 
North they travelled through the jungle 
Aiming to escape from forest
Seeking an itinerary 
Near the coast in open country 
 
So they climbed a wooded hilltop;
Han attained the top-most branches
Of a mighty towering ironwood
To survey the route before them 
 
To the north...Read More

That 9 11 Day
That 9/11 Day

I was eager that day, 
Just as I was 
Any other day, 
To start my work, 
And state the statistics,  
Discourage clientelle,
Validate company antics, 
Embrace others
When I thought would, 
Make a good share price, 
Positive returns, 
No...Read More

The moon was looking blank faced at the earth
Then teased her with shy intermittent stares
She confidently wore her sense of worth
And turned away insouciantly aware
As they spun he eyed her more intently
To search the outer beauty she possessed
In silence danced...Read More

TODAY
You have been persecuted.
You have been oppressed and depressed,
Wronged and aggrieved, even violated,
And for what?
Because of gender,
Because your body lacks a certain appendage,
Your chest is more pronounced, or your voice more pleasant?

You have been slighted.
You have been affronted and blasphemed...Read More

Nectar flow, golden honey
Irresistible
