By Then I'll Be Hungry

I’m serving blueberry daydreams with cherry sky pies.

Let’s get naked for a few hours and have a very productive late afternoon.

When the sun was born, God passed her around for all of us to hold. She glowed brighter with each of our kisses until she was just plain out of control on fire with our love.

I tell you this because I am in free fall orbit, and it’s not nearly dinnertime.



For the mythological Gooseberry Garden and Poetry Jam's question about Aphrodite's Jam.

Ed, Ed, Ed, your poems are magical!! And each seemingly better than the last. Not that the earlier ones sucked, or anything. I don't mean that at all.

I just like your mind and heart and how they fling out these special gems.

I agree with the "hot, warm and yummy" thanks for a visual feast to start my day.

Thanks also for your kind words re: my novel. I'm guessing you have or will also have one of those in progress? You certainly have the talent to do it right.
