Thursday Think Tank: Market Day

Cool to the touch,
succulent flesh
yields grudgingly
to hands that
reach out and
grasp in need.
.
.
Fingers stroke
soft, lush skin...
imagining how
lips might also
trail across this
naked pleasure.
.
Were you mine
my tongue would
taste your juice,
would savour
each fragrant drop
of sweetness.
.
Come to me…
my eager mouth
will not rest
‘til I am sated
on the repast
of your love.

.
I’m amused to watch the care with which discerning shoppers choose their fruit. They sniff, peer, probe and stroke…no detail is overlooked by those who seek the very best. I find myself wondering if their loved ones are afforded the same intense level of consideration that the dewy peach takes as its due!

When I saw that Poets United Thursday Think Tank prompt was, "Market Day", this piece came to mind. For more takes on the theme, check out the link below...

Delightfully done, Lynette. I read a lot of not-very-good poetry online, but you are the real deal.
It's been so long since I wrote anything beyond a limerick (a bow to your Irishness) that I would be embarrassed to submit a poem to anyone. Every now and then I send some publisher a poem I wrote nearly 50 years ago, but no one ever wants to print it. LOL

I will forever think of this piece as I stop to watch shoppers make love with the produce. = )

Terrific, Lynette. The double entendre is seductive and your epilogue explanation as intriguing as the piece. I tend to agree!

LOLOL Delisciously decadant... Hehe

Yes, we did indeed think along the same lines... I am still addicted to chocolate, too. So, I have to try never to buy it..unless my resolve weakens and... I succumb.

Loved this ... :) I love being naughty/sensual with any use of bad language or porn at all. It's all in the reader's mind that 'sees' what it wishes to see, right? :)
