a familiar language

i hold willow in high regard.
so when she recently created a blog
that would allow for people
to "write"
you know . . .
like "writers" . . .
then i didn't think twice
and took her up on her generous offer.

i haven't deliberately "written"
for a very long time.

thankyou willow!


my eyes follow
their deliberate arcs
and sinuous arabesques -

an echo of a lexicon known to all
who have walked their fingers
along the length
and breadth
of a woman’s body.

Sexy, Steven. You'd better warn Willow what's on her way! She may want to wear a flame retardant suit and have a pair of tongs handle to handle this one.

Golden West said...

An outstanding contribution, Steven.

Interesting eroticized approach, congratulations.

I went the humor route. Check it out.

Dave King said...

The highest of accolades: not only magnificent, but tres sexy as well!

Vicki Lane said...

Hot! . . . on this cold winter day.

willow said...

Beautiful and sensual, Steven. The pewter does have wonderfully feminine lines! I'm looking forward to more of your writing, dear friend. x

Linda Sue said...

Sensuous little pitcher! Next lifetime I want to come back as a little pewter pitcher. Or as a thought in your head that gets written down more exquisitely than warranted. Yes, that is what I want to come back as...unless, of course, you come back as a monkey, then I will have to re think my wish. Really nice, Steven, writerly writing. I will never look upon a little pewter picher in the same mundane, utililtarian way as I have done before reading your post.

Yes, you are right about the sensuality of the shapes.
This meme is rather fun isn't it?

You have such a way with words, steven.

Reya Mellicker said...

Willow is amazing. I am proud to call her a blog friend.

You, too, of course. And - aren't you already a conscious writer? I think you are, yes? I say yes.

Evening Light Writer said...

Fantastic especially the second stanza which gave this lady proper goosebumps.

Ronda Laveen said...

Sweetly told and loving caress of that grand lady.

Jen Chandler said...

Very beautiful and sensual take on the photo. Yours brought a whole new spin to these tales.

Just wandering along the Magpie route.

steven said...

reya- i really appreciate my dear willow friend who has inspired me, showed me the bloggy way and more!!! writing? well i always wanted to be a writer but perhaps my sense of conscious writing was different and now here i am muddling through and trying to share some ideas and moments and beliefs and confusions and even some memories and maybe this is it!! is it? steven

steven said...

linda sue you make me laugh so hard sometimes!!!! my friends have been encouraging me to think less but if i become a repository for thoughts that contain people - well i might be certifiable (which could be fun in its own way and then again maybe wishing for something that my heart's not in could be a bad karmic choice!) have a great evening and morning time. steven

steven said...

hey rick - it's as much what you want to see as a anything!!!! fun. thanks for dropping by. steven

tori said...
