Exploration......


on a whim
he changes
his face furniture

in the dark
her lips trip up and over
tracing a new traffic pattern

Sensual indeed. Nice work, Karen!

His face furniture is a great line. Nice.

Karen from Mentor said...

I've always liked that idea; that a man's glasses, mustache, soul patch, etc. was furniture for the face.

Fun to have a pair of Cathy's be the first ones in on this thread.
Thanks for stopping in guys.
*smooch*

Face furniture. There's an interesting mental picture. The mental picture from the second part was pretty sexy.

I like how your brain works. :)

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Laurita. Me too. And now? I can't stop thinking about tiny hot wheel cars and broad chests and backs.....

Karen, this is some really powerful imagery. It's fun to think about where this goes...

Karen from Mentor said...

I know. Things like this keep me up at night.

Thanks for stopping in.

Oh, those men with their whims! And then you have to learn a whole new way around. *sigh*

Lovely language in this, Karen. And great imagery.

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks for your lovely words Kevin. It's always a pleasure to see you in my space.

I'd be just fine with this particular whim. It's not like when you change around actual furniture and then later that night you bark your shin on a coffee table in the dark.

For me learning a whole new facial pattern would be fun. Fingertips slowly tracing the plane of a cheekbone, the tip of a tongue darting delicately into the corners of a willing mouth, gently kissing a ...

Um. Going to stop now while my knees'll still hold me up.


*grins at you*

hot rods or moon craters... choose your own adventure, right Karen?
Varoooom! Love this.

Karen from Mentor said...

Ah yes jodi my sweet. Quite a merry adventure can be had when examining the lush and varied landscape of the human form.

[In my best dragnet voice]: There's a million stories in the naked city...and this was one.



*smooches jodi*

Exploration is truly as sensual as you've described it...
(and I'm not just saying that because of the recent secret I've revealed) ;)

Huge hugs!

John Wiswell said...

Traffic and furniture. You take a lot of cars through your living room, Karen? You long rider, you!

Karen from Mentor said...

Your "secret" nearly ruined my laptop Estrella. When I read that you had fallen in love with "bookshelf porn" I spewed tea everywhere.

Karen from Mentor said...

There's a traffic cop working the intersection in my living room John. Once he clears away the gridlock then maybe I'll get to ride.

Note to Earthlings:

The above exchange between Wiswell and Schindler doesn't have to make sense to anyone else as long as the code goes through intact to the mothership.

Harry said...

Face furniture is brilliant! Now when he changes his face furniture does he screw up his face feng shui?

Karen from Mentor said...

That's an awesome question Harry. Feng shui actually recommends that you move a shared bed a few inches every so often -in either direction- to keep passion alive in the bedroom. So I think rearranging the face furniture would do pretty much the same sort of thing for a couple.

Marisa Birns said...

As she traveled along a new face pattern, thought of a little voice admonishing her to "mind the gap."

Yes, have to shake off London's grip on me.

You are so wonderfully clever. And I do remember reading a feng shui book that said a tree should never be planted at front of house.

Am jet-lagged so who knows what I'm saying or minding.

Karen from Mentor said...

*smiles at Marisa, wraps her in a blankie warm from the dryer and slides her into her bed*

[you're adorable when you're jet lagged]
