SWEET SAVANNAH SUMMER SOLSTICE ( BALLET DANCER ) by Jeffrey Littrell

 

the smell of poppy-scented candles

wafted from hidden votives

my reflection was in her window

coyly masking hidden motives

 

in a turquoise mini-dress with pearls

and that perfume I adore

she kicked off her high heels

and laughing, pulled me to the floor

 

wrapped inside her sweet embrace

conquered and entranced

my head was spinning dizzily

yet my senses felt enhanced

 

your pirouettes and violent kisses

now linger on my mind

a sweeter tasting grape, I know

that I shall never find

About digthroughlife

I am a fifty-three year old poet who also writes fiction. I worked twenty-three years for the USPS, though never enthusiastically. I am a member of French Writers Worldwide and have had several poems published in French and Spanish. I hold strong opinions on music, film, and human rights. Some of my influences are Charles Bukowski, Arthur Rimbaud, Dylan Thomas, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Sylvia Plath, W.B Yeats, Bob Marley, William Blake, and Hunter S. Thompson. I'm an avid fan of the New York Yankees, Oakland Raiders, and Indiana Pacers. I like traveling by car. I enjoy seeing rock and alt-country bands in small venues. I hold a black belt in Taekwondo, but no longer spar due to injuries incurred in a motorcycle accident in 2005. I play acoustic guitar. I love Crown Royal whiskey and California Kush. Women are both the bane of my existence and all that sustains me. I believe strongly in the power of love and heartbreak. View all posts by digthroughlife
