At the rail
Golden sunlight softly falls
	on the cottage by the shore
and the woman standing there
	on a summer day so warm

roof is batched with grasses dry
	and of golden wood 'tis built
things of life shaped by man
	forming all that he would have

Isolation
Premonitions once foretold,
Grace our presence, a sight to behold.
Breathless throughways and doleful silence, 
Consumption of souls and hearts of the masses.

The collective yearns for times of bygone days,
A past that is but a shrouded isle of halcyon haze. 
The terminal...Read More

In falling rain
In hot sultry heat of afternoon
	electric charge in the air does grow
every touch with tingles filled
	tension swelling growing is

soft breeze whispers through
	pressing cloth again swelling curves
moisture clinging showing all
	soft warm drops begin to fall

lush full redness of cherries ripe

CITY STREET
CITY STREET

I drifted down the city street,
Feeling tired and sore.
Nothing seemed to inspire me,
I walked with heavy feet.

I sweltered in the sultry heat,
Deafened by the noise.
My shoulders bore the weight of life;
Bowed down in defeat

Then I heard that voice so...Read More

But I should have known 
she wasn’t through.
She snuggled close 
to whisper in my ear,
and said I have a message for you.
She sounded sexy and sultry 
and licked my ear.
Cuddling with me,
I had both hands full 
of my favorite parts...Read More

Ariana Grande, a gorgeous talented lady
A songbird from heaven, a voice smooth as gravy
Notes exquisite
Phrasing so delicate
Her sultry vibes are velvety and chocolaty

in my element
among artists
we’re all eccentric
yet I feel I belong
my soul does
its happy dance
my heart palpitates
my muse vibrates
to the tune of
midnight stars
playfully gyrating
in sultry silksoft 
perfumed breezes

I’ll never be hardcore
doing the circuit
but eh!
never say never
is what they say

Good Ol Southern Lemonade

On sultry humid southern afternoons
we gathered on the old mansion porch,
glasses filled with ice and long-stemmed spoons,
sipping grandma’s home-brewed lemonade 
spiked with grandpa’s finest homemade
white-lightnin’ packing a punch as any
he had for years been brewin’ illegally,
which got us selves lit...Read More

A helter skelter trade at rush hour
A busy hive raging with actions' power


From every spot, rise screams and yell

Seduction on a May evening
Glistening upon the dancing shadows
Of a sultry, sun kissed eve
Twenty shades of eternal green hew
And the purest of eye catching beauty
Which envelops a gently undulating scape?
Against an azure, all contrasting evening sky
Poisoned not, by man’s developing
Almost virgin like, in puritan...Read More

Torched by a brace of smitten souls falling in love.

A Day in the Life of a Frog
froggy went courting
on a sultry summer day
the flowers wilted

froggy dives into pond
makes green soap bubbles for fun,
chases his round dreams

grass is greener on other side
froggy jumps over fence
falls into dry ditch

male crickets chirp at night
a mating call for the girls
froggy...Read More

How sweet’s the lovely scent and sound of rain
As I look out amidst the sultry storm
From bursting clouds upon the window pane, 
I feel the chills on my svelte body's form.

My mood is dark, sultry
As passion plays my mind.
The summer storm is blowing in
So, I respond in kind.

Passions seek an outlet
No walls can it contain.
Catching the breeze upon her lips
She calls her lover’s name.

The winter winds return.
A chill is in...Read More

Premium Member HEART OF A HUMMINGBIRD


Deep and deliberate
The voice of a soul
Who’s circled
At the gates
Of hell 
Come back
Loaded with
A message
To set things right

I’d recognize
His voice
Anywhere
Bluesy
Sultry
Seductive
Intoxicating
Shout out
To my very core
Call out
To my very soul

Transfixed
Quivering
I’m a captive 
Hummingbird

It’s not the words
He says
Or those he doesn’t
It’s the music...Read More

Like crystals being diluted by a prankster or trampster, and scattered

led to happenstance
five short years ago
we gave love a chance
to intertwine us 
in this intriguing dance
slowly at first, no missteps
nice and easy, not too complex
the tempo changed to a sultry slide
feelings rose that we couldn't hide
passions grew, bodies complied

A green wave of glance 
gently gathers near the sun
eclipsed by moon

as prisms pull dark from gloom

pinned in your sky

dancing ever quitely in the bush
drifting, gliding 
ever close

Summer was lush when Harry came home;
And birds sang among southern trees.
Here at last, and no more to roam,
So, we danced in bloom fragrancies!

When Harry came home, days were lazy;
And all sultry were the nights!
When Harry came, fields of daisies;

L,

Surrender is not a choice, 
beheld 
in a sultry seductive voice

those sweet sweet sullen lips 
demanding attention

smokey eyes 
slowly smolder and flirt
as tongues dance the night away

there's bullets in the breeze
caressing a temptress tease
saluting an inner peace
where warm words melt
