acrobat...

lust to love
  tumbling point
    right on the tip
           of his tongue

I think that might be very naughty. Trouble is, exposing the naughtiness exposes the naughty. Well, bugger!

I love everything about this. You have a very sensual turn of phrase, Karen.

Delicious!

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Kevin! If you notice one of the labels is "sensual sentences" -- hee.


I'm enjoying the fanciful and multi faceted interpretations of this one. Have had a bunch of discussions off blog about it. It's only twelve words, but I guess if you turn your head sideways to read it -- it looks completely different...

writer + reader = wowsa


Thanks for coming in to visit! Much appreciated.
*smooch*

Love the positioning of the words, and nice poem. Gave me a smile.

Karen from Mentor said...

I have a thing about the visual aspect of poetry. Not all poems need it... but sometimes -- especially if you want to emphasize a sliiiiiding aspect -- as in that shift from the very concrete lust to the ethereal love? Being able to space the words like this was awesome.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment David. Nice to see you in my stream again.
*BIG SMILE*

Mmmmm... sounds yummiful!

Karen from Mentor said...

like chocolate! hee.
yummiful is a great word Cathy. I'm going to use it in a sentence at least 12 times today.

:0)

I read your poem before the first comment and reply appeared. Now, I'm tilting my head sideways to look at it from that point of view, and it's all I can see now, too... the two/three/whichever many reader's points of view aren't mutually exclusive though!

Love it!

Karen from Mentor said...

yep, that's what's so cool about words Estrella. They can bounce around in your brain any old way they want.

Thanks for reading and commenting sweetie. Much appreciated.
