Season of Temporary – Poem by Ali Grimshaw


tended affectionately
organic prizes plumped
primed by summer's passion
heat and BB King's blues
quenching warmth 
gathering of sunlit kisses
red ripe to tango 
with your tongue and mine
slip into my backyard 
delight in this tender flesh
this ready to please moment 
of this temporary season.

  1. I love how the lack of punctuation provides multiple ways to read your lines, making some of them seemingly flow into each other, Ali! Thanks for sharing, and have a lovely day. I hope all is well 🙂 Aiva xx
