A Reblog…Tribute to the Monsoons…
The Wet Monsoons
Grey skies saturated with love ‘n’ humid with lust, blaming the season for their indiscretions…
Clouds pregnant with moisture they can no longer bear, praying for relief
“But dears, the answer’s blowing in the wind…”
The hot earth looking heavenwards with need ‘n’ desire
Lamenting, “Without rain, there’s no life…just like without wife, there’s no life…”
Its dry crust stretched to the limits ‘n’ cracked open -mutely saying “Come soon!”
A bolt of lightning from the blue ‘n’ crackling laughter splitting the air,” Your wish is my command!”
Thunder roaring the impending momentous occasion ‘n’ proudly reverberating it through all time ‘n’ space
Dark clouds veiling an illusion of the night, for the lovers to unite
The sun hiding behind ‘em to save embarrassment, temporarily putting off its light
Mother Nature shushing all the birds ‘n’ animals into a pin dropping quiet
‘N’ soon enough, the wind…

“It’s been a long day
Are ya in the mood for
A lil’ music
A slow striptease
‘N’ a steaming hot shower
The taste of wet skin
The whiff of shampooed hair
Embarrassing bathroom singing
Laughing ‘n’ squealing
Fizzing ‘n’ sizzling
Electrifying ‘n’ melting
So? I’m waiting…”
How can I resist?
How can I not give in?
‘Coz I’ve got you under my skin…’
Can I get a finger snap?
Honest feedback and suggestions highly appreciated.

To Poolside celebrations
Bar stools ‘n’ lounging chaises
Blue skies ‘n’ printed sarongs
Cool breezes ‘n’ hot fissures
Cocktails ‘n’ mock tails
Scotch on the rocks ‘n’ pineapple juice
Cold glass ‘n’ scalding fingers
Sipping slowly ‘n’ choking hazards
Goofy charm ‘n’ criminal beauty
Disguised constraint under layers ‘n comfortable in her own skin
Sun tanned ‘n liquid gold
Drowning on dry land ‘n’ water surfacing phoenix
Gaping kissers ‘n’ pursed lips
Doe eyes ‘n’ honing discs
Sunglasses ‘n’ translucent skin
Dry mouths ‘n’ wet hair cascading
Clear waters ‘n’ nude swimsuits
Revealing little ‘n’ imagination running
Dripping ‘n’ drooling
Lazy moments ‘n’ frozen time
Snoopy dogs ‘n’ in heat bitches
Up front entrances ‘n’ back exits
Poking ‘n’ pinching
A whiff of intoxication ‘n’ morning after of sobriety
So what will it be Sir?
Business or pleasure?
Ah, Maybe a lil of both…

At the end of a long day
Make a plan
To a date
When the city retires for the night
Light some aromatic candles
Pour yourself a drink
Run a hot bath
Disrobe your worldly roles
Slip into foamy bubbly goodness
Listen in to the quiet
Broken only by the sound of running water
Open the page of the book
And dream away……

May you wake up to :
-The smell of fresh coffee brewing; Smell a little deeper
-The first rays of the sun kissing your face; Bask a little longer
-A rose by your bedside; Breathe in the beauty a little longer
-Your loved ones sleeping peacefully; Watch a little longer
-A sleepy adorable voice; Listen a little longer
-Eyes smiling glad to see you; Smile back a little wider
-A hug before you leave; Hug a little tighter
May you take a little longer to see the things you see every day,
Take a moment; It may be the best in your day,
My wish for you is that you be a second late.

I make a wish list
Never knowing that it would come to life in a split second
The universe listening closely
Agrees to turn it into reality
My ideals come closer
One by one
Yet taken by surprise at this sudden turn of events
Never knew it could feel so good so soon
How do you want it to play?
A deep breath
What have I wished for?
What path brought me to this present moment?
Never dreamt far enough to know how it ends
Left speechless, thoughtless
A blunt break-
Have I just been taken for a fool?
Yes! No, maybe
Left In a daze
In the heat of the moment
Wondering was I not ready
For my prayers to be answered.
If God answers your prayer,He is increasing your faith.If He delays, He is increasing your patience.If He doesn’t answer your prayer,He is preparing the best for you…
