Thin layer of skin peeled back to reveal
Layers and layers of sweet nectar with each peel
Full ripe and juicy and ready to savor
Resting on your tongue the sweet flavor
Two hands grasp this juicy delight
Fragrant scent with every bite
and mouthwatering drip
Drips of golden nectar
Sweet with every lick

I need...

I need to feel your warm presence in my space
The light touch of your hand on my face
The very thought of you makes my heart race
and brings a smile to my face
I need to feel your breath on the back of my neck
Your hand on the small of my back
Soft whispers of your plan of attack
Your love keeps me coming back
I need to feel like I'm the only one for you
It'll show in the things that you do
Your love for me shines through
Every trial that we have gone through
I can't imagine my life without you
I need to feel your arms embrace me
Touch me, kiss me, taste me

Sunny Sundays
remind me of
Frilly dresses
Tights and hair bows
Patent leather shoes with little gold hearts
Mints and nuts in granny's purse
And walking to church

Sunny Sundays
Remind me of
Uncle Joe
Practical jokes
And Chinese checkers
Giggling and sniggling
And Vanilla soft serve

Sunny Sundays
Remind me of daddy's cornbread
Codfish and potatoes with butter
Sun shining in on the kitchen table
Mommy and daddy under the same roof
And the feeling of family

Sunny Sundays
Remind me of
The innocence of childhood

Perfectly shaped lips
Juicy and full
The scent of chocolate
Lawd I can't take it no more
Fire building and building inside
Come here baby let me take a ride
Start real slow
Kissing you from head to toe
Exploring every sweet inch of you
Breath you in when I'm next to you
Heart racing with anticipation
Every touch is a sweet sensation
Let's savor every moment like never before
Just you and me baby to love and adore
Let's set the mood with wine and candles
Music and moonlight is all we need to handle
A perfectly lovely romantic rendezvous
Hours of love just me and you


Took a journey to the land of my father
First journey was with my mother
Celebrating another Matriarch in the family
Took me on another journey
This time with my father
This was the first time I traveled with him
Back to the land of his birth
What a moving experience
He is 80 years old and we are celebrating his sister's 90th birthday
For the first time I see him as a boy
Looking up to his sister with pride, love and joy
My heart can't contain the emotions I feel
Everything about it seems so surreal
I am aware this is very rare
The presence of those who have passed are near
Generations of family from near and far
Have come to celebrate the lady of the hour
But I can't take my eyes off daddy
Beaming with love, pride and joy
This makes me happy
This celebration means so many things
But for me it means
Letting go of anger, resentment and pain
Looking at him I will never see him the same
Today I was humbled and touched to the core
I harbor anger, resentment and pain no more
You see tomorrow is not promised to us
So letting go of anger, resentment and pain is a must
Today I saw a sparkle in his eyes
Today the spirit of forgiveness resides
Today I not only celebrated 90 years of life
Today I celebrated what it is like
To see a man as a boy humbled and broken
Looking to his sister with love and pride unspoken
I can take a deep breath and let it all go
Tears from the past begin to flow
and wash away all that I held onto
No more anger, resentment and pain we're through
