Kelp Caress - Poem by Dorothy Pugin

Stay calm
ashore and
surface watch

Or dive
below still
waters feign

And tangle
flesh in
kelp caress.

    woman's white flesh being caressed by the undulating green kelp from the depth of the sea. It is strangely erotic. (Report) Reply

    This is a deep one. One thinks of the sea - and the sea of subconsciousness - and then the sensual ending makes you certain it's the sea. But, then you think, well, we often find something surprising - or disturbing - when we dive into our dreams, memories, reflections, going beneath the surface. The surface seems attractive, too, in this one. Anyway, it's such a beautiful poem. I love your spare - and evocative imagery. Please, post more for us! Lovexx Will (Report) Reply
