Hairflamewhiptowel! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Stepping out of the shower
your hair a lovely long red flame

that you turn into a whip
compelling me to go get

you a towel

which I do
wrapping you

in a big white fluffy tenderness.

    Lovely poem Donall. Adore the title, it's got a most beckoning quality, almost as though it's thumb told me to step in and read! The story itself is a delightful snapshot of a tender moment, told in your inimitable way for us all to revel in. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    In full agreement with DD here! The runtogetherness onewordness of the title...just leads in succession...one wordthought to another....and the envelopment of us all in your big white towel of love...is perfection! (Report) Reply

    love the 'runtogetherness' of the title as if it just kept morphing from one to the other and finally finding its true self in the big fluffy white tenderness. a cute capturing of a lovely little moment that happens all too quick for the camera to see but which both poem and heart manage to record. Love...it! Delightdelectationdivine!

    love Dee Dee
