ReConfigured: Blue Variations

Her long tresses are cerulean,

with a random streak or two of deep purple;

and they fall over her naked breasts

with a wild, almost unkempt, abandon;

tnhe very softness arouses her.

Those who disparage the use of cosmetics

will not appreciate her use of eye-shadow

that matches to her hair color perfectly.

Her long socks (we used to call them "thigh-highs")

are a grayish blue, perfect for chilly dismal days.

Shoes only rarely confine her feet in those socks;

and even those brief moments pique he reluctance.

But now, with shoes far from her conscious thought,

she begins to peel those long socks from her legs---

slowly, no hurry whatsoever, a casual tease

because she knows I am watching, and she seeks to please

me, though I am undeserving (yet, she claims me

out of this whole lost world that she now ignores).

When her bare feet at last emerge from those socks,

her toenails show off a painted combination

of cerulean and deep purple.

Her color coordination, as she has chosen it serves

to compliment the tone and softness of her naked curves---

which I shall praise in poetry until I am blue in the face.

Thank you so very much.  Your comment is very encouraging, especially coming on the day I have begun a sequel series called Remedia Amoris (the series title is from a Latin poem by Ovid).  I will continue to add to Ragged Meadows as needed, but the sequel series will apply the beauty of curvacity to various scenes from history or classic poetry.
