Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Reading Red Earth

She sprawls 
unashamed
letting us watch 
sweat trickle hot
 between her breasts



under her arms 
 unshaven tufts
 wait to catch 
evening's coming
cool


strong shoulders 
shrug pack aside 
letting heavy 
lay still


 resting awhile
taking her ease 
she swings in 
rhythm with 
island time

Wonderful, Kathleen. Great photos -- that red dirt and the driftwood -- and your words a perfect complement.

Very...well...fertile! Rich and sensual. Earth as lover, waiting to share and be caressed.
