poems, stories, and bits on writing and living
I like multiplesof three—brain, tongue, hand:mind-love my flesh,
speak to my bones,
caress my soul.
Fresh, ripe, whole…
I’ll give you me,

Who could refuse? (Now you've got me thinking of all sorts of things that come in threes, a magic number indeed.
Three is so contagious, isn't it?
Three is indeed a magic number, Magaly, and your poem is magical too. I love the phrase ‘mind-love my flesh’ and the way you offer yourself ‘Fresh, ripe, whole…’
Thank you, Kim!
Great words. Powerful.
The sum of three is pleasing to the eye and pleasing to the soul. I like three very much too!Anna :o]
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful x3
This was eerie. Maybe it was the image following, but those words just slid around and kept whispering...
It felt eerie to write. There was something in the promise offered in the last stanza. It made me feel like the speaker was promising anything--great and terrible.
This speaks volume . Loved it.
Powerful! And thanks for the link to the art site of Elemental Otherworld -- love her vision of the Divine Feminine!
I'm quite taken by her art, too!
This is so poignant!😍 Your poem reminded me of a quote by Tarryn Fisher who states; "How odd to be made of flesh, balanced on bone, and filled with a soul you’ve never met."💝
I love that quote!
You times three ... let it be!!!!!
Three sides of the same person, interesting thought from the usual perspectives. The many of the one?
Thank you, Joel.
The power of threes! lol 🖤
Fantastic! Senyru sequence?Happy SundayMuch❤love
No, not a senryu sequence. Just having fun with threes.
Oh the delightful magic that unfolds when we love each other where we are at, honestly and with no expectations of them being other than themselves.
Three of you, dear girl, may be more than anyone can handle. Except Mr. Piano Man! ;
Love the 'three' prompt … oh the possibilities … which you took in a wonderful direction, here.
Thank you, Wendy.
