Bathtub Poetry

Bathtub Poetry

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

bathtub poetry

 

 

love drenched words

and a bottle of pinot noir

exasperate salted wounds,

regurgitating unfinished verses

of bathtub poetry.

Not so sure about the salted wounds, but I'm all about that bathtub poetry...maybe some bubbles...soothing and relaxing. Time to get those unfinished verses completed! Nice :-))

I can’t think of a better place to meditate and let lines of poetry come together over a nice glass of wine. Bathtub poetry has a place all of its own and conjures up so many romantic thoughts. Simply divine!

I wrote my best poetry watching a lady enjoying a long bath. I read poetry to her and I washed her hair. This is paradise. I believe, best poetry written a bathtub and the mind is quiet and peaceful. Thank you dear Kelly for sharing your amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Hello dear Kelly and you are welcome my dear friend.
Oh that wine...lol. When I saw the name of this I thought of that Pink Floyd song on The Wall where the girl in the background says, “wanna take a baaathhhh”. You have this great way of making even frustration sexy, I love how good you are at the shortest pieces, making huge points. Loved this.

Bubbles galore... as scented Candles glow in the atmosphere where dreams burst into visions of softly falling snow of pure poetry as only a Mistress of Mischief can orchestrate where others dance and dream of Fir trees with feathered birds and tweets of hidden gifts of
Love and abiding adoration. Merriest Christmas
Blessings... tenderly, Pat

Upon reading this exquisite poem the first thing that came to mind was, Bed, Bath, and Beyond . . . you know, because after luxuriating for a time in your bath, your fondness for high thread counts entices you to your bed, where no doubt your bottle of red warmly resides on your nightstand, its sensuous fermentations easing your body and mind beyond the mundanities of your day. Wishing you well, always.

Pinot and bath- a comforting cleansing I would say dear Kelly! A time to self- and whatever it dredges up can be dismissed in a pop of a bubble (either soap or wine!). Amazing how skillfully and precisely you can paint a scene in the exactly right amount of words! Love the artwork and poem my friend.

I love how you paint this in highly bittersweet tones. It may not always be a fluffy & sudsy soaking, but however it turns out, it's great to be submerged in poetry! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
