not afternoon tea

A Love Sonnet

Afternoon Tea by Alice Bailly-1927

the divine women of cedar creek lie,
they make up stories and tell tales all day.
bemoaning love and lust, three of them sigh,
“what more can a mere woman do,” they say.

their naked bodies flailing in the sun,
each has her own way of being in tune
with nature, with heaven–things on the run,
with them, the best month for this is sweet June.

“and why should we worry, we’ve all we need?”
one says as she sips on afternoon tea.
“society’s issues can’t harm my creed,
I’m happier now than I’ll ever be.”

these women of cedar creek, they mean well,
of lust and of love, they’re under their spell.


For the next two posts, I’ll be finishing up the sonnets. It has been an extremely long time since I pulled these babies out. Prayerfully, you’ll go easy on me. This is Love Sonnet #5.

You

Maria always has something serene and calming to share–even the photographs are inspiring.

Reflections on Existence

drift to me
when evening brings
lonely things
in need of comforting
cicadas wind down reverie
as light bleeds amber rays between the leaves
for i feel deeply
beauty held tenderly
and your gaze never fades
when i turn my eyes
to blue skies
and sea
for you
are never far from me

Scintillating Saturday Share #20

The Last One

Every Saturday, I will share a photo that touches my heart, makes me happy, or lifts my spirits in some way. The purpose? To send love, light, peace, and kindness out into the ether. Scintillating Saturdays: one definition of the word scintillating is as follows: witty; brilliantly clever.”

Can we do that here, beautiful people, spark something brilliantly clever that touches others every Saturday? Please share this to all of your social media outlets. We can do what we can by spreading a little love, can’t we?

Using up to 7 words, tell me what this photo sparks in you. Here’s mine:


sunflower-faced
falling for nature’s
vast beauty.


Now, it’s your turn. This’ll be our “Scintillating Saturday Share #20.” It’ll also be the last one that I host as well. In two more weeks, I will begin a new prompt, so be on the lookout 🙂

You can respond to this post, reblog and respond, or create a standalone post of your own, but please ping or tag this post so that I’ll know to read and respond to yours.

Using up to 7 words, tell me what this photo sparks in you.

Care to get creative with me for this scintillating Saturday share?
