Picking Perfume



I thought the berry slices looked like lips!  





Picking Perfume


Perfumed sweetness lingers
 in the feathered lines of your hands
I kiss your bristled cheek
 soap of morning whispers 
of our early start
picking memories in green ocean
our pinkies touch and smiles
soar into the blue crystal day
transformed and ageless
 I cling to your red mouthed grin
as cupid's bow 
paints heart's kiss.

Over in the Garden, Hedge challenged us to write a poem using 55 words aka Flash Fiction 55.  This new challenge will be rotated by Fireblossom and Mama Zen.

A lovely capture of a warm moment, Ella. The berries look *exactly* like lips! Thanks for playing.

I like the smells and fragrances here, Ella. They are oozing from the page. I know of the 'soap of the morning' smells, that it is lingering does mean fresh and early.

They really do look like very lush lips and your poem was lush too. :)
I love to read peoples post but I actually have an ulterior motive for visiting your blog today. I am trying to help a little dog called Mako. Mako was rescued from a life that had been spent tied on a roof in Peru. as a result of his time spent out in the burning sun Mako developed Cancer, which means his life expectancy is now uncertain. As Mako is looking for his forever home, his cancer proves a big problem. Finding someone willing to take on a dog with no idea how long he might live is a difficult task. Suzanne Yancey has asked for me to help and I am asking fellow bloggers to do the same. Mako's only hope comes from reaching as many people as possible. Perhaps you could pop over to my blog and take a look at Mako's post there and maybe, if you have the time, create a post to help spread the word about his predicament. Thanks Joss.
