between raindrops
a light scent of  musk
drifted through the air

reaching a man
sitting alone

ɕ

as though
in a dream
 the irresistible scent
drew the man
to a beautiful tree

ɕ

dark pink flowers
with delicate centers
called to him
waiting
to be plucked

ɕ

one blossom
stood out
untouched by the rain
glowing
as if  lit from within

ɕ

the man
held the fragile flower
ever so gently in his hand
with no memory
of  how it got there

ɕ

he walked back to his cottage
 layed down
upon his bed
and lightly
began stroking its petals

ɕ

he teased
the center nibs
feeling them
become erect
under his fingertips

ɕ

softly
he stroked
the deepest
center
of  the bloom

ɕ

a
small
sigh
caused
petals to flutter

ɕ

he
could not resist
licking the deep center
with
the tip of  his tongue

ɕ

a sweet nectar
began
to flow…
greedily
he licked every drop

ɕ

he became
intoxicated
by the heady scent
and the  ambrosia
upon his tongue

ɕ

closing his eyes
for just a moment
he opened them
upon
a wondrous sight

ɕ

next to him
lay a beautiful woman
her luscious pink lips
smiling
at him

ɕ

they kissed
igniting
the fires
of
a fierce passion

ɕ

no choice
but
to
give themselves over
to their desire

ɕ

long, slow kisses
licking…
tasting…
nibbling…
hungry for more

ɕ

hands
exploring…
caressing…
stroking…
pleasuring one another

ɕ

their bodies joined
as passion grew
until
it could be contained
no longer

ɕ

an explosion
that shook their world
leaving them spent
content
in each other’s arms

ɕ

he was awakened
by
the morning sun
shining
through the windows

ɕ

next to him
lay a dark pink blossom
wilted
but still beautiful
…he smiled

between raindrops, a light scent of musk drifted through the air reaching a man sitting alone.  as though in a dream, the irresistible scent drew the man to a beautiful tree where dark pink flowers with delicate centers called to him, waiting to be plucked.  one blossom stood out, untouched by the rain, glowing as if  lit from within.  the man held the fragile flower ever-so-gently in his hand with no memory of how it got there.

the man walked back to his cottage, lay down upon his bed and lightly began stroking its petals.  he teased the center nibs, feeling them become erect under his fingertips.  softly he stroked the deepest center of  the bloom.  a small sigh caused petals to flutter.  the man could not resist licking the deep center with the tip of  his tongue.  a sweet nectar began to flow and, greedily, he licked every drop.

the man became intoxicated by the heady scent of  musk and the ambrosia upon his tongue.  closing his eyes for just a moment, the man opened them upon a wondrous sight.  next to him lay a beautiful woman.  her luscious pink lips smiled at him.  they kissed, igniting the fires of  a fierce passion.  there was no choice but to give themselves over to their desire.

long slow kisses…  licking…  tasting…  nibbling.  hungry for more.  hands exploring…  caressing…  stroking…  pleasuring one another.  their bodies joined.  passion grew until it could be contained no longer.  an explosion shook their world leaving them spent, content in each other’s arms.

the man was awakened by sunlight streaming through the windows.  next to him lay a dark pink blossom, wilted but still beautiful.

he smiled.
