Nudity

Carpe Diem #696 Nudity

on a humid night
we lie naked holding hands
in front of the fan

 ~~~~~~

peeling an orange
on a moon drenched night
naked I feed you

in the still of night
wearing only moonlight
I come to you

Summer

bare bottomed child
runs happily through garden
Mom in hot pursuit

(so as not to cause embarrassment, was not this child – but a neighbors child almost 30 years ago)

Fashionista

Carpe Diem # 694 Fashionista

my little fashionista
in a league of her own

the little diva
playing to a different beat
making her own rules

your hand slips in mine

washing away the snow

smokes another cigarette

on tennis court playing chess
pieces half our size

I photographed this game the next morning.  I actually only sacrificed two  pawns and no other pieces were taken  for this checkmate.

even the rose must bow
