please read the amazing poetry by a talented writer.
Somme-in a little different.
It was a lucid afternoon
Straight out of my dreams
We laughed and loved
Feasting on Pepsi, popcorn, and poetry
Drawing her a warm bath
I attempted to read Neruda
Yet she had other plans
Reciting pink verses
Red rhymes cascaded from her glossy lips
Like slippery suds of passion
Soaking me with love
Words floated like translucent bubbles
Washing my flaws, fears, and pain
Rinsing my body, purifying my heart
Baptizing my soul
My beloved took a bath
It was me that she cleansed.
This poem came from a prompt from my mentor Nandita Yata. Hopefully, she will approve.
