GUILTY?

hi pal, been awhile still...ok...no apologies to bore you but take the following to spark a debate. cheers:

GUILTY?

so

i was seated before

she walked in


left…right…left…right


hips swaying

almost gyrating

in a slow story-telling motion


fitted by a desert-hot

shadowy short skirt

setting her legs free to feel EarthAir


her feet angled to earth

on elevated heels

with a slopping tease


her toes almost kissed earth

with every one of her

pretentiously delicate steps


she had on a spaghetti top

lacy and windy

hanging just above her wavy navel

revealing skin so groomed

it makes a man kick


as she got closer

the bangles adorning her arms

rang a collourful mix

of purple, pink, yellow and green


she took a seat by the next table

with her spellbinding backside

arched to my wowed eyes


but before I could breathe in

the spread of collours

of the weave of beads

that circled her waist


she turned and arrested my spellbound eyes

and it was as though she wanted to ask:

Guilty? or Not Guilty?

Guilty, guilty, guilty! Take me to jail! Arrestingly beautiful poem. Makes up for the long wait, no?

This is so beautiful!
Reading the post I can actually see the picture of the whirlwind you are describing.
Hope you were not uprooted by the pwer of this tornado!
