ripples

A Chapter by Ana Papaya
"

and waves

"
~•

ripples make waves
      lovely and strange
when they flow this way
  it's a lot like the rain

you think you may drown
         instead 
    you get carried away

it's lovely and strange
when ripples 
    make waves
when waves spread 

     from a flash flood
to the warmth of your body
lying in my bed

when you think
    you may drown
instead get carried away

to where dreams 
          leave us spent
in our lover's embrace

I am in the habit of thinking of ripples as being the effect that one person can make on many others, creating ripples that touch a community. It was hard for me, as I read this, to switch my expectations to a more sensual reading of the idea of ripples. I'm not sure I'm convinced, but I do love your style of sensual writing simply becuz you balance specific details and non-specific possibilities (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Dear Ana.
"when you think
you may drown
instead get carried away"
I loved the poem and the above lines. Wonderful. Good to be carried away. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

dear Ana... life ripples out to discover
the ebb and flow of your heart... the soft flutter of butterfly wings
where birds sit on a tree limb and chirp a melody of days spent
among the alcoves of symphonies. truly, Pat

A gently sensual post, full of promise but not so much it takes its intimacy away. You have a very light hand when it comes to an increase of passion, Ana.. superbly so.

Is sex a metaphor for everything? Or, is everything a metaphor for sex?

Good question. :)
intensely sensual...i love this...the way you so subtly express a passion between two...a flood of physical feelings, with a strong current of spiritual togetherness...
Let that river flow...precisely ..
