    i heard of the rustle of the grass slowly coming my way...

    him: has anyone ever told you that your skin looks like honeycomb....you look like you like grits...(smug laugh).

    ...and when i looked up to see who was asking...there he stood, with a molasses brown encasing and ivory perfectly aligned between his lips.

    him: your skin looks just like honeycomb...is the honey equally sweet?

    "Once, i said, "it was once."

    ...and before i could remember when the sweet dew was depleted, he was sitting under my tree.

    him: someones' been feasting... (fondling the undone plaits resting on my shoulder).

    ...the Myrrh smelled as if it were resonating under his flesh and then jumping out finding a home in my breath.

    ...unsure why i asked and without turning his direction, i asked, "and what are YOU doing?"

    him: Harvesting...(was his confident reply).

    ...and so suddenly i found myself floating on some sea of grass in some wave of a blanket with a brown, strong anchor made of ivory and myrrh.

    him: i only harvest if i am certain there will be crops.....

    ...so now i am in awe....
