257 – Afternoon shade

The day was hot.
A light breeze
Rustled among
The leaves.

She enjoyed
The gentleness
Of the soft grass
And the cool shade.

Far in the valley,
She could feel
Her lover’s

She was strong.

A delicate princess
No more,
Though not exactly
A hero either.

But sometimes the world
Doesn’t need another hero…

Sometimes what it needs
Is a beautiful monster.

It made her proud…
And maybe a little bit horny.

She thought about
Her warm lips.

It was going to be
A glorious summer.
