“Spring Orgy” for dversepoets.com

backyard with OLWeeks rose.jpg(O.L. Weeks Rose, non fragrant)

Sarah over at dversepoets.com is hosting today, poems about the meanings of flowers.  This is my take.  I have 60 some rose bushes here on the property, some 40 years old and older.  Many just planted this spring.  Husband dragged home 11 rose bushes from a movie set they were throwing away.  All lived.

Spring Orgy

 

The roses are having an orgy.

They haven’t the decency to wait for the dark,

But ply their lust in the soft, morning light.

 

Randy Graham Thomas is leering.

Madame Carriere is blushing.

Her pink silk-petal gown flutters

As she twists coyly to avoid his embrace.

 

By 10am the sun warms their scents and foreplay is over.

The wind at 11am entwines the two.

Pistils and stamens are seriously ‘at it’

Brushing languorously over parts

An hour ago were covered discreetly.

 

At high noon in the heat of the day

Pollen is floating all over the air

And even the wide-eyed cats

Sitting under tender foliage are blushing.

 

The garden gnome is licking his lips

While a concrete hand creeps to his crotch.

 

This fall there will be rose-hips aplenty.

Red nipples packed with tiny seeds,

Evidence of a spring-time lust.

    ROTF!!!! Oh, Toni…me, too. Me, too. Thank you so much. Poor Garden Gnome has a story behind it. A friend, Steve R. who we call “The Swedish Axe Murderer”, (6’5″ and a Swede) left him at my gate with a sign around his neck: “Take care of me.” LOL! Of course I did…but he’s now reduced to just a head stuck in the maple tree. LOL! Thank you, Toni. This was fun.

    Very cheeky! I love your use of the names to personalise the roses – roses have such great names – and the reminder that those pretty flowers are all about reproduction. We walk through showers of flower semen every day. Not a sentence I ever thought I’d write. Great fun, very subversive.

    Thank you, Sarah! Graham Thomas and Mme. Alfred Carriere are gorgeous roses…the first is a buttercup yellow, and Mme. is a pale pink…so feminine. Both were (I had to cut them down for painting siding) about 20×24 feet, peeking (actually coming into the open windows in the bedroom and brushing our faces). LOL. Thank you, Sarah. I did a few ‘subversive (erotic) poems on roses, this one the least of that. LOL!

    How intriguing, Jane: roses from a movie set! I so enjoyed your rose orgy! It made me smile, especially the wide-eyed cats and the gnome!.I love these lines:
    ‘This fall there will be rose-hips aplenty.
    Red nipples packed with tiny seeds,
    Evidence of a spring-time lust’.
