RENDERING FROM A SUMERIAN CLAY TABLET SHARD

RENDERING FROM A SUMERIAN CLAY TABLET SHARD

 

  She took me to her bedroom

  Her more than sleeping room

     Gateway to heaven

  She led me up winding stairs

  Cool wrought iron spirals beneath my palms

     DNA helix of our passion

  She drew me through a door

  Where plaster cherubs with rhinestone eyes

  Winked me to enter

     Portal to paradise.

 

  She stood there smiling

     Eyes that glittered

     Lips that beckoned . . .

  She stood there in her dressing gown

     A softness and a color

     I could not resist,

     A wrapping more ardent than any

     Childhood Christmas morning.

     A bow at the bodice

     That begged to be undone . . .

  She stood there in her undressing gown

     In her smiling, flowing colors

     In her warmth and need and passion . . .

  She stood there smiling.

 

     White roads to enchantment

  She stretched out her arms to me.

     Palms open with invitation

  She stretched out her arms to me.

     Fingers, glorious for touching

  She stretched out her arms to me.
