Delight 2012

Delight (2012)
Ashley Lily Scarlett

He bites her neck.

She bites his lower lip.

He kisses the end of her nose.

She kisses the tip of his chin.

He kisses her right shoulder.

She kisses his left knee.

He kisses her fingertips.

She kisses the palm of his hand.

He kisses her left buttock.

She kisses his left thigh.

He kisses both her eyes.

She kisses both his nipples.

He kisses under her arms.

She kisses behind his ears.

He kisses her hair.

She kisses his toes.

He kisses her elbow.

She kisses the crook of his arm.

He kisses her mouth.

She kisses his mouth.

They shut their eyes.

Ashley Lily Scarlett , 1995

    Delightful. πŸ™‚
    Delightful like some verses in Garcia Lorca’s poem PequeΓ±o vals vienΓ©s (Little Viennese Waltz) which inspired Leonard Cohen to make this song.
    I can imagine Cohen and Julie Christensen interpreting your poem in a most delightful way. Perhaps with some ‘lalalas’ less. : )

      Oh my goodness, Marcelo, thank you so much!
      Your black and white pictures have so much emotional impact.
      I’ll very much look forward to seeing some of your colour work.
      Thank you, again, you just made my day.

    I do think they are missing something.
    But then perhaps I am too. I don’t think anyone has ever kissed my left knee (or my right knee, come to think of it… my knees suddenly feel rather neglected… I’ll have a word with my lady right away).

    Beautifully progressed emotion… gently loving. πŸ™‚
    Richard’s shout out is totally justified. I must thank him.
    And I love your photographs.
    Have a good weekend!
