Young buds blooming on a bitter orange treejosyift 2022
Love laying in the sun when days are long.
They all showed up – in crowds of neroli !
Like paste-y people trying to be bronze.
Oh wow, I feared your charm was overdone!josyift 2022
How cloying – that “super-sweet” temperament.
But you have spice – a fire in your tongue!
My apple heart’s been caramelized for you.
An Afternoon Swim
She lost her orange bikini when she divedjosyift 2022
Into the luscious seas of Sicily.
Of course, my effervescent love’s contrived
Only by the romantic scenery.
I’m Sure She Loves Them…
Pretty peonies sit by a window,josyift 2022
They chose to wear their best perfumes today.
And in such gowns, they put on quite a show!
Displayed is someone else’s sweet bouquet.
Eyes like Roses
The world is harsh and bitter… cold and mean…josyift 2022
Where people drain my nerves down to the core.
But she’s a voice that warms like ginger tea
and eyes that greet like roses at my door.
