High Tide

I felt your pull and how could I fight it? Why would I? Your waves gently washed over my heart and filled all the tidepools of my soul. You brought life and fresh oxygen to my limp and lifeless hands. When your fingers slid over and around my thighs, I opened myself completely to you, […]

A New Name

Twisted and full of fury Burning with something deeper More real than this earth Surrounded and engulfed Magnificent I am delighted in you I am a doe clinging to rock cliffs, safe within, always finding my foothold I am an albatross soaring while the auroras dance above me, my wings dip and I spin I […]

Treasure Chest

To me, you are a treasure chest. There are those who would beg, steal, and destroy for just a glance at you. For many years you were hidden away and under-appreciated, forgotten, your worth. From without, you are ornate and beautiful, carefully crafted and carved, inlaid with shining precious metals, gold and silver and platinum. […]

It’s not that I really have to battle any real wild animals. I live rurally. Pretty rural. Out in the wilds of Alaska. But they’re out there… I know they are. Oh wait….: I mean honestly… this is what I primarily see. Mostly wild. I say mostly because to be honest, if they hear my […]

Nothing So Sweet

the thing is my hands stretch out for you my dreams wrap around yours they swirl and intermingle to the point I doubt I could separate these threads of wispy fog from my ankles or my wrists instead I lift every morsel you shift towards me and swallow it whole like a heron snapping up […]

Peach

a soft peach she aches to hold her petals of velvet now drawn closed she desires them open for she would run her fingers along their gentle edges awakening to her rosy sunrise weeping stretching straining burying her nose breathing in her scent she would caress her fruit admiring her flower lifting her limbs entwining […]
