(Watercolor, Jane Kohut-Bartels, 2000)
Nick Nicholson has worked hard to reissue “A Seasoning of Lust”, first published in 2009. As with first books, there were changes that needed to be made, in format and content. It is a mildly erotic book, reflecting the milieu of the first writer’s group I was first in. However, I wanted to write more than erotica and left and went on. As I became to hold, erotica was just a seasoning, not the whole dinner. Hence, the title of that first book. In a few weeks it will be reissued on Amazon with a new cover and other surprises. Thank you, dear Nick. Your friendship and eagle eye has made all the difference.
I’m going to include this for the d’verse challenge. It’s my first sonnet, my first nautical painting, and from my first book: “A Seasoning of Lust”. A lot of firsts for me but not I am sure in the expectations of d’verse readers. LOL!
O, give me a taste of you and your tongue
pry open my lips with that soft muscle,
plunge in warm waters of an ocean sung
by lusting mermaids, loins in a tussle,
a clam’s foot that tastes the brine of passion
claims undersea caves of another route.
Pull my loins to yours in a riptide grip,
sound my deep warm sea, your cock a stiff mast
the weight of you pushing me downwards fast
hips gyrate in a nautilus spiral.
With your foghorn’s groan, semen’s saltiness
floods my womb like the moon’s tidal offering,
we float weightless, that sweet mystic sea sings,
bodies sway, like abandoned ship’s rigging.
