Dragons and Peonies

Please come read Christine’s wonderful poem “Dragons and Peonies” about those first gazes across a room that turn into – More! See if her words touch off some of your old memories!

Brave & Reckless

The skin I am in

Longs to become acquainted

Of ink peeking out of

Your shirt sleeve

I wonder what it will look like

Lined up against the ink

On my arm

My gentle peonies

Against your fiery dragon

Your jeans and ironic tee

Hint of lanky muscles

Of steel

That I think will fit nicely

Against my curves

I cannot stop the smile

And slight blush from

Crossing my face

You seem to be

Reading my mind

Across the room

What you reading Johnnie?  I looked up. A long blond hair beauty with river blue eyes were watching me. I held silence surveying perfect legs and body in her see-through white Summer dress. I told her. Jack London book “When…
