The Poetry Bus is being driven by TFE this week, the challenge was to write a 14 line poem based on some very interesting photographic prompts and an audio prompt from Van Morrison. I chose the photo above.
Excitement in her eyes,
fake pink rose on ample chest,
‘you look divine,’ she’d whispered when we met,
low lights, drink filled tables,
a dance floor throbs with love and lust combined,
desire veiled by smoke, old spice and cheap cologne,
girls swoon parading in their satin dress,
pleasing my eye,
men sense the thrill of lovely flesh,
seated, she taps her feet,
touches my knee,
a hint of what’s to come,
part of the game,
I love to play.
