Describing Her in Words

Half of her is woman

ripe like an apple

the other half

impossible to describe.

.

Words escape me

I have none

I kiss her eyes

her hands her lips.

.

She is fire

yet I cannot keep from the flame

She is flowing holy water

and I thirst at her gushing stream.

.

Worshiping at her shrine

dipping my fingers into the river

touching my lips

slaking my need.

.

Half of her is woman

ripe like an apple

the other half high priestess

at the Temple of Astarte

.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    I had to look up Astarte. Another name for her is Ishtar, and I knew that one. Nice work as always, Frank.
    Best wishes, Pete.
