This week's words:

Blunder; Cringe; Digress

An Inner Light

Liquids heavier
than water have their own ways
at the sea's bottom.
This is no blunder,
not by nature nor by man.

A wolf's submission
is not a true cringe
no matter what it looks like.

I do not digress,
even at this time,
even when I offer mums
and dig my thumbs in
all along your back
hoping I remove your stress,
you laid out beneath
my hands, me in deep,
deep in your dreamy rose core.
I'm ablaze, I shine.

  1. This is truly beautiful Christopher.

  2. She must have been a stunner to set you ablaze!

    1. She had her good points... I made her up. I have a fine imagination.

    2. Perhaps embellished from some reality or other.

  3. Wolves and massages. Never thought I would see the two in the same work.

    1. Hmmm. Liquids heavier than water are here at the bottom of the sea too, and apparently not from some oil spill or other. How do wolves and liquids and massages and being ablaze all go together except in some crazy poet's imagination?

  4. What was laid out beneath the hands? I'm a little confused at that point in the poem. Please enlighten me. Thank you!

    1. Full body massage on the table with oils and ambiance and all of that just like the therapists do it.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
