    "Why do you ask?"



    Orange moon to red rising sun.... day dawning endlessly.... seamlessly begun....an ocean full of chocolate kiss colored roses.... this precious love softly queried in "what if's" and "supposes"....why do you ask?

    How do you enter a place that you already possess and fill with aqua moves covered in hues of hazy and purple poetic grooves....while birthing Ellington and Basie- like jazzy hypnotic blues....why do you ask?


    Erratic sounds of breath betraying true lust.... as windows to the soul come alive and break chains and shake dust.... bringing dried lips long needed moisture with each life shattering thrust....why do you ask?


    Reaching out for a soul that fit yours as smoothly as hand to glove....calmly denying that this could be love....head shaking mind beguiled...senses baffled turned inside out as your body smiled....why do you ask?

    We two danced under calls of cool summer nights and the whippoorwill....we tangled in rythmic tangerine lovers contortions.... succumbing to each others whip appeal.... delight we in love....in love we delight...truly devine we in this plight....can this be love seeing without sight....why do you ask?



    Red rising sun to the full bloom orange moon....come close and inspect your pleasure....feel my value and collect your treasure....when all is said and done....we two have become one....moon glowing full beam....she living in the rays of her sun....left to remember, replenish and bask...she made whole in the process...two becoming one....why do you ask?


    WHY DO YOU ASK???

    Q, essential..........this was quite thought provoking,
    how do you communicate to someone "who keeps asking"
    where they stand, do you love them, why, what if and more why's

    when they have already arrived.....I feel you on this

    This was deep and very incredibly moving!

    Incredible...Encore, Encore, Encore:spinstar:
