BERRY KISSES, COLOUR ON CURT CORNERS

 
Bright red berries
linger on bushes
before sunsets
like lip’s lightness
that lingers after kisses.

Bright red berries
tremble in the afterglow
of careful witness
like mouths that modulate
after tender caress.

Bright red berries
adorn towering twigs
thick and tall
like lips in favour
of that fine flexed flesh.

Bright red berries
slip with the sun
into sleep serenaded
with the day’s delights
like lips that seek slumber
to sweep over skin
as the scent of seduction
sinks between sheets.
