our story must not end here

riding the heat of dawn
we insinuated our bodies within one another
I presented myself to you
a wordless story
whispered in raging lines
fertile were my curves

from which our children sprang forth

spilling over with god given wealth
a rain of ages

carving the cradle of these infant sons and daughters
my breast milk abundant
nourishing young
influencing adult
satisfying aged

long and beautiful
as I was
as I am
to end
our story must not end here

Golden Gyptian

if you suspected the Nile River, you’d be correct 🙂

  1. That is some mighty fine work AnnMarie! How was your day? I am not feeling well crashed and feeling lonely and sad. AnnMarie=Number One! Did you plaster your bathroom walls with what i said not a day over 24? It would be a good reminder for you. 952 Woo hoo’s for me and AnnMarie I could use them too


    • Dan-
      so sorry to hear your having an off day – but you’ve been up and on for so many – unfortunately downs have to sneak in there too – find strength in all those great woo hoo days you’ve been having and in those positive days that will absolutely come your way again –
      wooooo hooooo
      I’m thinking about plastering my entire house;)

      • Thanks AnnMarie as long as I have you as my buddy I won’t feel sad for long. It’s just the life of a bipolar up and down we go. Yea the tide will turn eventually. It always does. That’s an even better idea plastere the whole house. You may be a certain age but you still look like a young n to me. You know real beautiful and full of life! AnnMarie=Number One! Woo hoo

      • Well you always put a smile on my face I hope it stays on there and this night improves. Gonna write a song for those 2 female wrestlers I like Santana and Paige. It will be fun.

  2. Oh my! I did not guess this was about the River Nile until you mentioned it. And then when I reread, of course! I was into the sensual words and feelings the first read through – then the metaphor itself in the second. Your words and skill with the brush and pen never cease to amaze me! Sun is shining here and hopefully beneath your feet today too, my friend!


    • I thought it was ‘riveresque,’ but when I read it later, not as watery as I thought 😉
      thank you for your generous praise here, my friend
      sun two days now!!!
