Ok so I’ve been informed that the original “Salty, River, Book” prompt was meant to be sensual, so I’ve risen to the occasion and birthed a new poem hopefully delivering a slight twist to the prompt. I’ve also attempted to add a bit of a previous prompt…. 😀
Twin peaks rise ringed with fire
Mouth and tongue climb the spires
Backs rise with gasping desire
Tips push higher and higher
Fingertip and thumb grasp
Cross the planes to valley pass
Mind the ridge watch the hair
Feel the heat it’s wet down there
Plunge within the river deep
Ride as raging passions speak
Salty seeds explode within
Pace slows, satisfied grins
An acorn pulled from mountain tree
Sows an oak whose book I’ll read
When nine months’ time has come and gone
Joy will bring daughter or son
Stephen Kellogg – 2012
Wow! Smutty….and….sweet? Deftly handled sir! Quite a difficult (and humorous) blend…love it!
Thanks… I enjoyed writing it! and even worked in an acorn from the mountain tops 😀
Agre with JC a blend of slight smut and beauty – well done – I love these challenges – any more? 🙂
Not sure if there are more floating around, but I think I may do another response to a poem out there … One has grabbed my eye so we’ll see what unfolds.
Then I’m likely to be tending to some of my other projects that are feeling neglected and have huddled themselves up in the corner. I think if I don’t give them some attention soon, they will begin to curl themselves up in to little paper balls and throw themselves at me.
