By the Lake

My Muse

I muse upon her

At a tree by

The lake,

I take my time,

Try to see

The line

Of her grin,

I can't

Put a pin

On what it is

I love in her.

It's a sin–

The way her

Hand can play

Over her face,

My lips

Long to feel

Her skin,

Her silk.

I miss

Her eyes,

The sigh of

A kiss,

She is a

Poet with a

Look that can

Send me.

I am her

Enby, true

To the End.

    Dear BJ - So glad that I've just discovered your 'original' talent. *As I scroll through your incredibly eclectic offerings I've subscribed to you with pleasure. I'm just a retired highly scrutinized Legal Biz Writer morphed into a self described "Goof Writer" never entering contests/or stat counts; nothing more.

    GREAT! Awesome! When I read those words, I couldn't help think of my sons and the relationships they have with their wives. You put their love into words. Just wonderful.
