Piel Canela

She stopped,

A flick of a curl.

I hesitated.

What kind of girl?

Ah–Music, Merengue,

Alluring cinnamon skin–

Murmurs all over

of love again.



Augustus / Folsom LA / February 2017

        Thanks Tyler. I've got a long winded one I'm working on, however. But I do like brevity. I spend half my time figuring out how to cut words out.

        A short-line sensation of romantic intrigue - great read.

        • Augustus

          You got it! And the intro from the author denotes this as "fantasy". At my age the lady in the photo would barely give me the time of day. Thanks.

          Thanks "A" ~ A very sensuous poem ameliorated with a perfect picture. I love the taste and scent of Cinnamon ~ BUT ~ the taste and scent of "Piel Canela" would put me on a higher Astral Plane ! Thanks for caring and sharing ~ BRIAN
