Reading Red Earth

She sprawls 
letting us watch 
sweat trickle hot
 between her breasts

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

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.

Wow - you sound like you've read Song of Solomon

Well done.

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