Georgia Summers

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers


Georgia Summers



Georgia summers

were as piquant as

a mint julep in July.

Languid days of skinny-dipping,

where temperatures were as high as

the traversing of hands

 underneath a skirt

of fettered gauze.

Exquisite and elegantly sensuous. Great form, cadence, flow and lovely, lazy, lascivious (?) imagery. Brava Kelly!

Thank you, Annette. It was most kind of you!
I'm gulping now. Sultry is not the word but as near as I can get damn it. I refuse to say Hot as its too crass.
So many things come to mind here. I am lifting my hat to wipe my face with my hankerchief like Rod Steiger.
thinking I look cool. I am listening to 'Somewhere down that crazy river'. I am swinging on the porch swing and I am watching the Summer of 42. And I am waiting for her to pass with a towel under her arm and that look in her eye.

Ahh yes... Those summer days of hot weather, cold drinks and steamy devil may care passion, sleeping outside on the sun porch with no clothes on. Very nice memories indeed

Such a sad though beautiful dream of past gasps and moaning moments. Your poetry always touches the heart, whether sad or jubilant. Your phrasing is second to none. ' .. temperatures high like the traversing of hands under .. ''
