Extinguish My Fire - Magpie Tales #23 - Tuesday, July 20, 2010

My head is full of torrid thoughts,
That never let me sleep,
Just when I find I'm dozing off,
Unbidden, in they creep.

I feel your lips caress my neck,
Your tongue soft on my breast,
I tremble, at the memories,
Of the things that you do best.

Your deeply probing kisses,
Always make me throb inside,
Until our passionate coupling,
Cannot be denied.

I arch my back to meet you,
And match your every thrust,
Enjoying every minute,
With unabandoned lust.

Here's to much more sex,
And far less treadmill time,
I think I like this exercise,
For a body more sublime.

  7. Here's to the lucious tomatoes and here's to your creation of yet another delicious poem!
    Cheers! Bravo!

  8. Delicious! Nothing finer than a fresh tomato...

  9. oh, wonder how many people on Earth can make a beautiful poem about tomato such as yours Carmen.

  10. A beautiful and delicious song of poetry!

  11. Oh, I love tomatoes too! You managed to name most of my favorite ways of consuming them. We grow several varieties. One is snow white cherry tomatoes. We've nicknamed them poppers because they rarely make it into the house. Most of the time we just "pop" them in our mouth straight from the plant. Divine. As was your poem.

  12. Wow, Tomatoes sizzling in vodka and spices - sounds like heaven...they are the most wonderful thing about summer.....bkm

    I've been seeing those wonderful heirloom tomatoes at one of our local markets...just wish their price tags weren't so high!

    Larry -
    So glad you enjoyed my poem. I wish you could share your vine ripened tomatoes as well! I have no place to plant them and not too much motivation, either. Thankfully, we have a great
    farmer's market.

    Brian Miller -
    Even tomatoes inspire me to poetry!

    Icy BC -
    You are always so nice. Writing about tomatoes wasn't too difficult. They are so yummy!

  14. tomatoes will be delighted with this lovely poem you made

  15. Suz -
    I love Shirley Valentine! I've been to Greece several times and those men are so like that! I have the video and we have a girl's night once a year and watch it, drink lots of wine, eat like pigs and have a great time!

    Helen -
    Glad you liked my tomato magpie! Can't wait to see what next week will bring.

    kathew -
    Wish I could grow my own tomatoes instead of having to rely on the farmer's market for my fixes.

    Tumblewords -
    I have to agree with you...fresh tomatoes, especially the heirloom variety, are my favorites.

    betchai -
    I can write about tomatoes but I can't seem to do those really signifigant love poems the famous poets pen!

    Carrie Burtt -
    So glad you liked my tomato verse!

    Tina -
    Your white cherry tomatoes sound wonderful. I've never seen any of that variety. Home grown are so wonderful...I haven't had any in
    years, just farmer's market ones and the usual grocery kind ( unless some of my friends who
    grow them have mercy on me! ).

    I could go for a glass of that fresh tomato vodka mixture long about now, with a hefty splash of hot sauce!

    Ayie -
    My friend in New Orleans told me she spent the whole day cooking and making her own fresh tomato sauce, Italian diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, and okra and tomatoes from a huge haul her husband made from the country. She got a huge kick out of my poem when I read it to her.

  16. Dear Carmen: A divine poem! The many roles the tomato plays, all the cultural character references and recipes I especially loved. And a little saucy with the Bloody Mary! Lovely fun!

  18. I love "Bessie" -- what a wonderful character you've created.

  19. Can't go far wrong with fresh tomatoes.

  20. chiccoreal -
    I am so happy you liked my tomato offering! It was great fun. I am waiting for Thursday's farmer's market to stock up!

    At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
    ( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

    Karen S -
    Well, Bessie, of course, was fictitious but could have been any one of us!

    secret agent woman -
    I think any home grown garden vegetables are so special! I wish I had space and time to garden!
