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
Heartbeat.

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.
