Thirst for Desire

Poem by Joni Caggiano – Photo by Waldemar Brandt on Unsplash

sun shining faultless upon her poreless, pale skin
fashion sparkles like rare diamonds, her face fragmented
dew clings from thin rose-pink hair like last night’s ignited lover
rising from her long arms, creating orange reflections that still hover

winds call the sea as a mother seal summons her pup
exemplifying her like a peerless halo in pure unconstrained love
his body sensing red and orange colors of the ochre sea stars’ dance
on ocean shores, making an unmatched map lifting the legs of his pants

swirling, she moves him as his vigor is surging within like
a moonlit tiger seeking its mate, growing hungry as his groin aches
desire building up inside him like a buck in rut beholding the ready doe
great waterfalls emptying into rivers as once flakes of liquid winter snow

grabbing her with gentle, strong arms, his hands explore her
his body leaning into hers like a flower toward the fiery sun yearning
smelling the sunlight on his skin, their hips meet, their union will be soon
pollen stops in mid-air, breaths are short, poppies around them purr in tune

      1. You are most welcome dear Joni❤
        “You would be a kind and loving Doctor.” Thank you so much💕💕💕💕 My medical exams will be in 2023. The competition in India is extremely tough because there are so many candidates and very few seats. So we have to start preparing in 11th grade itself.
        I got my 10th results today and I scored 97%. I am on cloud nine!

        Thank you so much for your blessings, love and support always Joni❤❤

      2. Oh that is wonderful Ishita. That is an excellent score. You should be on cloud nine. I had no idea it was that competitive. I bet your family is very proud of you. I can’t even imagine. I said prayers for you. You are a very hard worker and smart. I am sorry that there is so much pressure however. I wish and pray for wonderful things for you my friend. Stay blessed. Love Joni ❤️🤗💕😘🦋🙏🙏

      3. Thank you from the deepest corner of my heart❤ For your prayers, love, blessings and everything💕🥰 It means so much to me!
        Love Ishita🌹😍😍

      4. You are welcome I feel the greatest show of love is for one sister to pray for another. I am so proud of you for working so hard Ishita as it takes a lot of courage and faith to go against those kinds of odds but you have what it takes, faith.
        Love ❤️ Joni ❤️🤗💕

      6. It’s absolutely fine. Just take ample rest❤
        I went to meet my friends yesterday. It was a nice respite from the everyday routine. Also, a festival is coming up soon and I will be meeting more of my family. So I am compensating for those days right now😅

    1. Hi Brenda hope you are doing well. Thank you for your comment. I suppose it is a bit passionate but then so are most poets and artist I believe. Don’t you think so my friend. You are right about the animals we all have that drive. I am going to visit your site now. It has been a while still recovering from my neck procedure. The insurance company makes me have two of these and then they will burn a bunch of nerves in three places in my neck. I am praying because I am scared because this hurts so much. Water skiing injury and old surgery. Sorry it has been a while. I am sending you lots of love. Hope you read more of your work. Love ya ❤️🤗💕Joni

      1. I guess we can see each other, sort of. I hope your Doctor can relieve the pain soon. Nice people like you should not have pain. Sending strong healing and pain-relieving vibes and love to you. I love your poetry and read every word, sometimes several times.

      2. You are a sweetheart Brenda. Thank you for your wonderful support. Your comment is so thoughtful and sweet. I always appreciate your kind support my friend. Sending love. ❤️🤗😘💕

    1. Thank you Tim I appreciate you reading and commenting so much. I am glad you enjoyed it. I believe us poets are a passionate bunch. Sending love to you and yours. ❤️🤗🦋💕

  3. Sensual and sublimely erotic, dear Joni, you leave much to the creative imaginations of your readers as you deftly describe in sometimes surprising metaphors, desire, passion and the dance of urgency , of taking and giving in. ❤️🤗🌹🌺🌷

  4. Your poetic words are picturesque with emotional vibrancy. Love it!

    Hi Joni! I hope you are well. I wasn’t sure about your medical procedures and wanted to leave you a note of healing love, but your comments closed. Prayer, hearts and hugs! 🙏💞🙏💞

    1. Thank you so much for reading my friend. Oh thank you so much your prayers are appreciated and they really do touch my heart and I know they are heard. It was very painful and I have one more to go then they will be burning nerves in between three different cervical vertebrae. I have an old water skiing injury, I was a hot shot slalom skier. Had surgery ten years later, and I was blessed with a great surgeon in Seattle. Now I will not have surgery again, can’t continue getting steroids so trying this. Your prayers will help I know it. My next one is the 13th and then the serious one the following week. Probably more info than you needed but lift me up and just say for what she needs and God will hear. I feel so blessed to have all my friends in WordPress and I appreciate American on Coffee you have all been so supportive and your posts are fun, entertaining, informative and yummy. Plus I started drinking coffee at age five with lots of Pet milk. So I am all about the coffee. Love to you and thank you for making my day. ❤️🤗🦋😘☕️☕️☕️🥰🥰🥰

    1. Thank you Button. Are you enjoying yourself? Been thinking of you and grateful you got away before air travel becomes restricted again. Thank you for reading.
      Honeybun ❤️🤗😘🦋🥰

      1. My pleasure hon. I am enjoying myself. I just hope I can get back in the country. I am vaccinated so I should.
        Sending you love and blessings. Have a marvelous weekend.

      2. This ended up in pending. Anyway I see it now and am glad you are having fun. I think if you have your vaccination record you should be fine. Just enjoy your time, if you get stuck for a few days in an amazing place, well, that just means more beautiful poetry and more pleasure and rest. Sending my love, honeybun. xoxoxoxo

    1. Thank you so much. How do people just disappear from our readers. Is it because we get more followers and if there is a bit of time people disappear. I am going to put your sight on my search list Phillip, I really enjoy your work, sorry it has been so long. Hugs 🤗 Joni
