3 nuts and a squirrel Challenge – My entry

Words were

Theme – Sensual /Romance

Challenges originally set by – Whimsy Mimsy and johnnycrabcakes (and we await the next one)

Her skirt pulled up only slightly
the river cold, icy
toes dipped in rippling waters
cooled off on a summer day

She hitched only to her knees
never beyond, taut modesty
a gentleman would not approve
a lady acting inappropriately

Stepping across mossy stones
showing more now than her knees
blushing from her own allure
wary of feet, unsure

She bent to sip the water
the taste strange like salt
made an unfamiliar tongue
yet she wiped her lips decorously

Eyes looking both directions
she cares not of her dress
cupping hands of water
she holds them to her breast

Drops that trickle slowly
feeling wayward without shame
delighting in the pleasure
unknowingly lighting flames

The afternoon is closing
skies darken in her wee nook
tip-toes across mossy stones
back on land, returning to her book

Few pages are but read
chill in the air now bites
gathering her belongings
pleasured, home to end the night

Though this is my entry – I wouldn’t feel comfortable with myself if I didn’t give credit to

RoS – ruleofstupid

Susan Daniels and Stephen Kellogg along with RoS have been so supportive, giving of their time, their advise, their critiques on what I write. I am truly thankful for their encouragement since I began my Poetic Journey.

  1. Love this–have to remind myself that sensuous can be solo…I guess it’s because I’m a man…

        (recently realized I’m closer to the end of my expected life-span than the beginning…)

  2. Wow, Jen. This is hot. Reads like a historical romance (I have to fess up I have read a few of these, back in the day before I wrote my own material 😉 ), but HOTTER and more fun. Well done, Jen!

  3. Jen,
    this is great! and as a sometimes gentleman, I think I’d be pulled off the bank and compelled to join the drink with more than just my eyes!
