    It's not like they
    had planned it
    But sometimes feelings overpower
    circumstances and demand it

    They took this little stroll
    her and him
    The sun had just set
    and the horizon grew dim

    They walked hand in hand talking about
    nothing and everything at the same time
    Their conversation had the rhythmic pace
    and meaning of poetry without the rhyme

    The wild flowers and lavender
    made the air smell so sweet
    The marsh was so cushiony
    under their feet

    They exchanged feathery caresses
    and quick little pecks on the cheek
    becoming drunk with each other, light
    touches ignited passion's peak

    The fact that they were out in the open
    never entered his mind or her head
    Or perhaps this mantage of mutual impulse
    had to be instantly acted upon instead

    And there they were in a lover's bayou
    totally entranced by each other
    wrapped in reeds and in rapture
    There they were loving one another

    CAUGHT UP in the moment.

    that's when truth steps to the light. sometimes, you just can't fight it.

    nicely done.

    In the Spirit of Sankoaf!

    watzinaname,

    I am too through with you:)! Why is it that when I read things like this, I feel as though I'am involved. You all are too deep for me. It happened with nevar(I'm thinking something was wrong, for real), and this continues to happen.

    Well....I'm gonna have to take a break from ya'll, and especially you, watzinaname, this is too surreal, yet true at the same time. What Innocence:

    True, sometimes you can't put up much of a fight in the light of truth. Thank you baller.
    Well, Clyde Coger, poetry is written from feelings, can't help but feel the words written in return sometimes I suppose, it's life in ink, so just continue to make yourself comfortable brother, lol. Thank you for your kind words, much appreciated.

    Nice!

    Softly, slowly intensity grows until it overflows into a magical moment.
    This was like a PG13 show and tell. I enjoyed both images,
    your lyrical arrangement and the inspiring picture.


    Lovely Watz!
