erotextures

Artist: Aja Apa-Soura
fingers trace
familiar maze
of ear

goose bumps
scatter like
poppy seeds

veins flutter
butterfly wings
inside elbow

fevered thrusts
like oceans
on full-moon



urgent lips
wet, pliant
potter's clay

bodies bow
like milk
rises overflows

sated limbs
quiver from
residual heat

Victoria Ceretto-Slotto discusses texture as a writing tool in Poetics at www.dversepoets.com I tried my hand on it and this is the result. Do let me know what you think. Thank you!

  3. Lovely and very sharply painted images make this both sensuous and mentally agile. The textures are strong and vivid as well, especially in the last few tercets. Really enjoyed it.

  4. You have completely captured 'textures' in and throughout this wonderful piece. My favourite part is the second stanza: goose bumps scatter like poppy seeds. Beautiful! Well done Padmavani, I find it impossible to write on cue, but you have done it perfectly here.

  7. Sensuous and much to the point of being steamy. It captures the feel of the young at heart in their special relationships. Beautiful poem!
