Fearful because it might excite the uninformed mind
Goddesses in amorous play
Rats dissuade others from dining on the flesh and fuzzy-looking teddy bear cholla
Without spines, cactus won't make it in the desert

Fearful because it might excite the uninformed mind...That line had me laughing before I got through the rest. Definitely not a read to be breezed over, Sage. You've said a mouthful again. ~~Nordette

Yes, this is deeper than it appears. We all need 'spines' sometimes to survive...

The imagery just grabs you in this Sage 'Rats dissuade others from dining on the flesh and fuzzy-looking teddy bear cholla' is just sublime, Love it.

Sage I love your ingenuity! Glad you have the spine to needle those who need it!;-)Great work!

Reviewed by Jane Rodway 2/8/2006
The first line is great as there are lots of uninformed minds out there ready to make judgements- and that last line is great, exactly what all us cacti of the world need to get by in the day-to-day dealings with those uninformed people. The title also made this very real with a desert sky in one's mind.
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 2/8/2006
Ah yes, the subliminal anticipation of setting off in life with your own solitary zipped sleeping bag, in the knowledge that it might become two...!! Like the element of excitement and danger that you flirt with here, Sage; do Goddesses perform because they WANT to, or because they have a shockable audience, and it is just SUCH fun to wind people up?! :)) Whatever, you certainly can't do either unless you are prepared to take the consequences and are strong enough to cope... if you gotta go counter-culture in order to exercise personal sovereignty, then that path certainly ain't for the meek and fainthearted among us - as your picture of the cacti might suggest. Your "rats" line makes me think not only of a censorious audience, but also of a premeditatedly malevolent one.... But don't mind me... I am a few teeth short of a fully-fastening YKK these days... :)) Gotta love it! K xx

Well now! Feelin' frisky, perhaps? *giggle*

This was a cute write; well done! Glad I stopped by!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

The title drew me in...left me with a smile on my face.

The write didn't disappoint, either; goddesses in amorous play stimulate the mind and leave me wanting more. Brilliant!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Has a distinct Zen like quality to it Sage, or compressed haiku style !
Whatever, your uniqueness in expression shines through like a lighthouse beam in dense fog !
