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.

A sultry piece that reminded me of the movie The summer of 1942 for some reason just had a feel of mystery and the photo displayed the innocence, youth and carefree moments of the Bilitis movie

Thank you for telling me that...I appreciate it, Aaron!
First the picture, very nice and intriguing. Also captures the heat of summer and anything to cool off. Anyone that has been in the south in summer will understand the words you so eloquently used in this piece of yours. I really did enjoyed reading this Kelly such a good job you did here. By the way I'm in Alabama at this very moment visiting in the heat of summer.

Oh yes it is but on the coast. So the ocean breeze is good.
~~This reflects a youth and passion that makes one yearn for those days along with you despite never having experienced it.~~
