Pulse-quickening, carved biceps.
tongue-darting reps, inscribed fire,
stout ancient phrase in flames,
"sage made the fire down below."
Artisan, archer, warrioress, her conquest, to religiously
hit her mark in fields of wine, oil, and bread,
the golden straw of pubic wheat on fire latticed with
grapevines, searing bits of root embe dded.
The sage draws back her bowstring, allying herself with the growing power of scorching desire,
taking turns caressing the fire down below,
a field of wheat and oil awaits ignition on their eve,
the fire down below, flaming words survive in
inscriptions, hot whispers of passion, sweating women
coming, blazing red faces, tongues singed, their
eyes burning, staring at it all, it's a rite,
pulse-quickening, carved biceps.
tongue-darting reps, inscribed fire.

|This is incendiary, Sage, and ignites its beacons which catch on in peaks and troughs all over the place, whether we be male or female, I'm sure. You sure know how to light the fuse and watch the line burn until it hits the mark and explodes! Total dynamite, thank you. I now have to wander from room to room in my physique and psyche to make sure all my flames are extinguished for the night! If I'm not here tomorrow, you will know that my house has gone up in smoke! Glad to see you workout, too! :)) LOL Kate xx|

As ever, you take us for a breathless and intense walk on the wild side....that unrestrained side where raging passion is unbridled and provocative...
You are a artisan supreme, and you always score a bulls eye in whatever medium or channel you are active in, which shows your all round abilities and skills,.... but most of all you are an artist of the senses par excellence !
Walk with grace in your endeavours and enterprizes....
