Hot Ginger

It's in the tingle
of a hot ginger toddy
that turns me on
when my body
needs some fire


it's in the tingle
of a hot ginger 'body'
that turns me on
when my totty
needs some fire

Last few words: 
word play foreplay
Editing stage: 


I like the first version best as it makes more sense for me, but all in all there is something to ponder in both.
keep writing.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Read this yesterday but had to run before i could comment, i was trying to think of a humorous comment. Anyway getting back to today, i loved this very good poem. Love Roscoe..

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

I read this when you first posted it. Sorry that I did not leave any comment. I will try to be better about that in the future.

There isn't much to say on this one other than it's great. I flowed nicely and I especially liked the "suggestive" tone of it. I feel like you offered just enough to draw the reader in.



Not only have you been a fantastic writer to me, but you have taught me how write to inspire other people. Thank you for being such a great role model.
