Season of Passion



the sensual season

thick and ripe with life.


Sun-kissed days

warm and tender.

Cool breezes on bare skin

like fingertips gently caressing.


Intoxicating aromas and tastes

succulent, juicy pears

warmed, spiced cider

exciting the taste buds,

begging for more.


Leaves changing

fiery reds, shimmering golds

passions inflamed.


Colors intensify

building to a climax

heady, fecund

erotic smells envelop me



rhythms gently slow

Mother Nature preparing,

ready to wrap the Earth

in a cooling blanket of white.
