What if?
 
The trickling water from the low flow shower head felt warm against her skin. It was the last few days of winter and the cold moist air cut into her soft succulent nature as if a knife were pressed against her throat stinging as it sliced a thin but, deeply felt line. 
 
“I am not made for this bitter cold” She thought. 
 
Lathering up the poriferous sea sponge with the coveted aromatic soap she had purchased in her travels years ago. The spicy scent of cinnamon and cloves with the slightest hint of saffron filled the small space. Her mind drifted to a country she long since explored. 
 
“Book the flight!” she frustratedly lectured herself as the soft rain of droplets dampened her voice into a longing whisper. 
 
The auburn locks weighted around her shoulders were brushed aside as the creamy suds covered the tender flesh only to be whisk away by the luxurious streams of heated rain. 
 
There was a man, as one might suspect, that had opened his eyes and glimpsed her soul without turning away. The compassion and understanding he freely gave, yet never his heart, left her wanton but hopeful. His life, she refused to disrupt, called to her in these cold winter nights but he had earned her respect and for that she remained loyal to unspoken vows of distant secrecy. Bending at the waist to marinate her calves in the exotic accumulation of memory and sent, she wondered in a hushed voice, as if her ears were forbidden to hear the truth of her desires, 
 
“What if…?”  her voice trailing off into the thought.
 
Water turning cold, her susurrations were disturbed by an abrupt shock of icy chilled water and an unexpected gayety. The epiphany overwhelmed her senses, sobering her mind passed emotions. 
 
With a new-found clarity that was once hidden within her truth she declared, 
 
“What if?”

I’m looking forward to tasting your imagination…..

Why did I not take you home?

Arm brushes ever so lightly, a bar unknown.

Taunting eyes hold you captive, alluring promises they do show.

 

Nights of pleasure entice, words ever sweet.

Pretty face for you, but it is only a little treat.

 

It is mercy that is offered, the depths you’ll never see.

Youth not in your age, your spirit keeps you free.

 

Keep away my young man, it is not rapture found here.

But an unrequited love, you’ll inevitably begin to fear.

 

Broken and fractured, facets would soon reveal.

Parting ways is a small kindness, your fate has no seal. 

 

Thank me you will not, tonight as you sleep alone. 

Yet your heart will rejoice, this passion unknown.

Ah… but if his kiss resonates the algid mountains covered in frost, I must inquire from within, where have they been?

The words:

Where Lagan stream sings lullaby
There blow a lily fair
The twilight gleam is in her eye
The night is no her hair
And like a love-sick lenanshee
She hath my heart in thrall
Nor life I owe, nor liberty
for love is lord of all

and often when the beetles horn
Hath lulled the eve to sleep
I steal unto here shielding lorn
And thro’ the dooring peep
There on the cricket’s singing stone
She makes the bog wood fire
And hums in sad sweet undertone
The song of heart’s desire
Writer:
DELARGY, DAVID / O’HAGAN, EUGENE / O’HAGAN, MARTIN / ISAAK, SALLI / O’NEILL, DANNY / TRADITIONAL

Hmmm, I’m going to have to sleep on this one.. I included the song that popped up when I was looking the forword up because it was melty (so not trying to cheat by adding the lyrics and not writing my own words)

I’m looking forward to tasting your imagination….. And enjoying an empurpling read….
I was inspired by my friend Tea with a Pirate to see if I could pull off a Haiku in his honor. He gives me a daily mental workout and for this I’m grateful. Check out his musings at http://managuagunntoday.wordpress.com
Man Empurpled
Hand holds tower erect
Empurple throbs winters peak
Exhale smooth pleasure
Hope I pulled it off Pirate… hehehe

I’m looking forward to tasting your imagination….. And enjoy a little effervescence blogging….
This was a challenging word for me (a spelling nightmare for as phonically challenged as I am) to use in my writing style… I do have a style…yes? I tried many ways to use it but the result was a bit bland. This is my go:
The luscious honeyed lips bestowed delicate gossamer kisses along his fingers, tracing the outline of each and every  digit. Her eyes demurely gazing into his, with an effervescent lift at her brow, suggesting what could be a night to remember.
Let me know what you think and come up with on your own?
