Ambrosia for Deities

She is the red of womanhood

emancipation against his skin

Her breasts are alert  gazelles

her body an intricate abyss.

She is the river of life flowing

through his veins.

Her tongue is a syrupy whisper

dripping with golden adventure

dropped like thick honey into his

weightless body and like a feathered

bird he defies gravity,  follows the path

of silken lips,  penetrates ecstasy.

  1. Wonderful. I love Karol Bak too and have used a lot of his work recently as I find he really depicts women with their hidden secrets. Very apt that you used one of his works for this poem 🙂

  2. Hello friend
    It’s been ages since you awarded me, finally posted today. Being sick I forget most, how to link your post. I wanted to make sure you know I was very slow but very thankful for the award.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. This is particularly excellent Holly, I meant to say at the time but must of been cosmic cartwheeling somewhere… It’s noctilucent cloud season where I live you know—that’s Latin for night-shining – but you know that anyway—the rarest and most beautiful clouds you can possibly see, so rare that I’ve only ever seen them once.
    Anyway got distracted again there… This poem is gorgeous, the only thing that I would ask would be, isn’t ambrosia only for deities? I hope you don’t think it’s cheeky, perhaps I shouldn’t be in critique mode in blog world, but it’s kind of hard to turn off. I love critiquing now and at one time it terrified me.
    Errrmmm Look who I bumped into on the way to the errmm cinematographers party

    He made me ask about the deities thing. He wanted to come and say hello and then started sticking his nose in where it shouldn’t be. I keep on looking at deities thinking it’s pretty close to a palindrome is deitied a word—spell check say No!
    Ah ha deified hmmm

    One day I’ll send you some Ambrosia custard or rice pudding it’s delicious and probably a British secret. Shhh

    Lovely poem

    I’ll leave stick man here, just let him outside once a day for 17 minutes and 37 seconds and he’ll be fine.

    • Hi Mark! Thank you for leaving dancing man for me. I will try to tend to his outdoor needs, maybe he can walk Tide for me. Tide had to have surgery and I have been mother henish lately as he is my baby (yes, I know he is a dog). I’m glad you are heavy into critiquing, I have been reading you over there at PP, have you felt a shiver.? Getting on to your cheeky critique of my scribbling…I mean fine work…it’s clear you are not a southern gent from the deep south of the USA where ambrosia is a mix of orange slices and coconut with maybe some maraschino cherries and served at Christmas or maybe Easter and could be offered up to deities with a bit of brandy drizzled over it. That’s how I like it. I hope you are enjoying the noctilucent cloud season over there, I wouldn’t mind catching a glimpse of that myself. Have the most wonderful fun and I will be over to check out your writing/poetry that is beautiful and mind blowing at Blue Garage and other places around the universe. Thanks for popping by, I love hearing what’s happening in your world.
      Ta Ta!
