georgia nights

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

•~

i recall those hot georgia nights
   with so little reprieve
   from the sticky heat
of beautifully bruised
    peaches

and my teeth
     sinking deep into flesh
that bleeds sweeter than a virgin
     breaking her chaste vows

   i reckon it's a sin
    to taste something
so sweet

     my lazy hand
wipes at the juices
       trickling down my chin

i sure do miss them
    those hot Georgia nights
with so little reprieve
    from the sticky heat

can't recall a memory
   ever tasting so sweet

"sin" now there is a word that should be forever struck from the human language.... why oh why should enjoying the sticky juices of a "georgia peach" ever be mentioned in the same sentence as **** (a word I refuse to say).... we love who we love and there should be no shame in this love... there isn't enough real love in this fool's world.... as for that 'heat', well Ana, you do know how to bring it... er... I mean really sticky poem... er... oh drats, you know I love this poem... ;0)

Lovely and so lazily sensual; and as pretty much everything has been said by others, I shall simply add; Peachy. :))

:) thanks for the smiles, Beccy (:
dearest Ana ... had a dear friend named Georgia that I worked with for four years many moons ago. I always relate the song “The lights went out in Georgia” to her. So this poem caught my attention. I adore the sweetness of the Peaches... We had a huge Orchard of Peaches here in Fredericksburg, Virginia, for years. You could go there with a big brown bag and pick your own peaches to pay for. They knew we would eat a few while picking the peaches. They used no sprays so they were truly Organic. They were so succulent and I would almost faint from pleasure. The Family farm gave up the commercial aspect of selling Peaches... one of my serious heartbreaks. I learned from Jacobs poem that you have a birthday tomorrow Friday.
I would love to dedicate a poem to you about Peaches 🍑... so be on the look-out dear friend and poet. tenderly, Pat

good morning Jacob, and thank you for your comment on my poem!
Juice running down the chin.....so very sensual. Hot and sticky and sweet....oh yea! Ana, your words drip sensuality. A sin? Hell no, it is pleasure and if that is a sin, well, we all need a little bit now and then, don't we? Great work. Lydi**

hi Lydi, thanks so much for the great comment! :)
You know... There's probably some people reading this that think you could be inferring something other than how sweet those peaches are. I've been, they're delicious.
My only gripe would be why it is located 28 feet away from the surface of the sun. 'twas a tad hot.
I'd go back, but only in their winter. Four stars.
Now that I've read it again, I'm not so sure a peach could be that good 😀
Ps... I was going to leave a ps saying how long this took me to type, due to ouchy finer itis... But realised it would be counter productive. Productive? Predictive? It can't be predunctive, can it?
Ouch!

For a hungry reader, your prose evokes a rumbling tummy and a mouth full of saliva!

Wow... I had to just say this! This is so vivid and sensual in all ways. I could picture it all and still taste those peaches. Loved it.
