Unity

Magpie Tales 92



I tasted the mint on the bottom of his lip
Cool sensuality tingled my forbidden
Slipping my fingers through waves of hair
Thoughts cradled in power
Nose to chin
Fragrance wafting from behind
Our lobes
Clean masculinity
Gentle Femininity
The Ying
The Yang

Two become one

Beautifully written. Well done! Yes, Kristen, we could be twins. After reading your bio, I grew up in southwest Iowa so we even share the same geographical beginnings. Keep writing, you are really good. Stop back for a visit anytime.

Beautifully written! Loved your take on the prompt. :)

A beautiful piece of writing...

Cad said...

Lovely writing. But "lobes" I think, not "lobs". And let's hope the mint was real, 'cos Paul Newman was a chain-smoker!

Jinksy said...

Hehehe! Cad's right! 'Lobs' are definitely tennis strokes, and wouldn't sit well around the ears! Nice poem though. :)

Helen said...

So funny ... the lobs comments. I was sitting at my desk trying to figure out how tennis entered into your poetic work.

Lyn said...

From A to Z..no doubt about it! I'm falling!! Well done..

Kristen Haskell said...

Ohh thanks Cad for catching my typo. I will fix it now.

Doctor FTSE said...

Don't explode the myth, Cad. But you're right. Minty toothpaste wouldn't hide it. Interesting Magpie, though.
