It’s Open Link Night at dversepoets pub. Come read some great poetry!
In December, 2016, “A Seasoning of Lust” was published on Amazon.com. It is now in its second edition. Nick Nicholson, a long time friend in Australia, did the heavy labor on this book, bringing a new cover and together we rewrote some of the poems. Nick also lent some of his marvelous photographs taken on his recent world tours to illustrate some of the poems and all of the short stories.
It was my first book, published in 2009 by Lulu.com, but most first books can be redone. I am very pleased with the new book, and am very grateful to my dear friend, Nick, for his keen advice and his patience. There is an emphasis on literary erotica inside this book, with poems, flashers, prose, and concluding with three not- so- short stories.
A piece of erotica to get the blood moving this cold January morn….
To The New Lover, # 1
Fingers flit over cheeks
rubbed raw during the night
by ardent kisses and the
rough beard of a man in rut.
An early morning’s light
peeks through drapes drawn
for modesty’s sake
of the night before.
She feels his hands move to her breasts
and nipples greet their caress,
arising to a new and different
touch, demanding notice.
His dark head moves to kiss her mouth now
dry, her lips bruised with their late passion,
he filled again with early need.
She feels him push at her thigh.
Eyes barely open, he now knows
the terrain, and with a growl, rolls on top,
spreading the sweet apex of her thighs, a hand
in the warm darkness there, waiting.
She stretches, remembering the sweet movements
of the night, a savage pas de deux.
An ardent moan escapes her throat.
This morning, he is gentle, she is sore,
almost virginal, challenged by the heat
of the night
and with gentle touches, he commands
and calls her out to dance again.
