Common Language – Flash Fiction

Common Language

Her early morning beach walk cleared the lingering fog in her head.  Remnants of heady passion from the night before were hard to shake off. 

Surprised to see him when she had opened her eyes.   Sunlight shining on his bronzed body.  She’d half expected him to have left without a word.  She panicked slightly, and pulled on her shirt slipping silently out the door.

She sat studying the clouds.

“There you are” she heard a voice say 

She turned.  He was walking along the damp sand towards her.  

“Why did you leave?” he asked. His voice slightly accented.

“Just looking for familiar objects in these clouds.”  she answered without thinking.

“But these clouds are clearly foreign, such an exotic clutter against the blue cloth of the sky”, he said.

“Clouds speak in the universal language”, her voice a little husky. “Don’t you know that?”

The Eyes Have It

Your face attractive
with faint lines
of wear and character
but your eyes
are spellbinding
Drawing me into
their deep limpid
pools of azure
I surrender willingly
to your hypnotic gaze
for there I might find
the answers to
my own destiny
Where will you take me?
Will I stay long
or will I just drown
in your watery lagoon?

Mish is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has
prompted us with "Eyes"

Color Me Hot

Color Me Hot

Erotic blue lust
sparks white-hot
volts of tingling
silver thoughts
into the mind
of sexual fantasy
Climbing fiery
red heights
of painted passion
Exploding mosaics
coloring me in
a thousand different
pieces of rainbow
Falling aimlessly 
into aquamarine
pools of tranquility
Cooling jets
my mood

More Than a Kiss – Poem of the Month – October 2020

More Than a Kiss

You held my hand
as we walked 
Hummingbirds hovered
by bougainvillea
tumbling over
whitewashed walls
Sun tingling
tanned skin
As we stopped to kiss
a lightheadedness
from shared wine
released inhibitions 
You pulled me closer to you
Biting my lip
knowing I wanted more
clawing, scratching
at the air
in silent screams
Desires sated
as light rain
entwined bodies
heated passions
Leaving our footprints
on parched sidewalks
The day turned sultry
as we resumed
our walk in silence
Both knowing
more of what
was still to come

Word Prompts
Loving - Word of the Day
Footprint - RDP
Introspective - FOWC



In the glorious, burning
splendor of deep lust
are passion-filled nights
Overpowering and exciting
where all reason is lost
in wondrous heights
Touching and stroking
Delighting in exploring
mind-blowing ecstasy
Sweating and gasping
Caution to the winds
Screaming out helplessly
The slow, delicious descent
from the euphoric state
is a journey of gratification
Until lain crumpled and spent
in the forgotten ashes of
intimacy and adulteration

I stayed with the rhyming format

Inner Glow

Inner Glow

An inner glow reflected
from the sky’s evening light
Burning inside with passionate
scarlets and golden threads
woven in sheer delight

Love is fiery and blazing 
A hot bed of inexplicable desire
Warming from embers refusing
to die in the ashes
of a heart’s perpetual fire

Painted across the evening sky
a canvas of erotic dreams
Artistic in its portrayal
Deep and rich with shades
and in twilight it gleams

Sue Vincent's Weekly Write/Photo



Passion reaching a dizzying height
Stars bursting in the sultry night
Two entwined bodies
glistening with sweat
Each one breathlessly spent
Slipping back into the forgotten gown
The temperature starting to come down
Escaping into the darkness of night
Hoping to forget all
By morning’s first light
He had excited her like no one before
Carrying her gently across the floor
Thrilling her with each caress
Murmuring softly
Easing her body from that dress
Reluctant to leave, her feet made of clay
Never had she felt this way
The connection she felt was strong
She watched him sleeping
Deep down knowing it would be wrong
At the door with one final glance
Did she dare take a chance? 
Fly away now
Best to be gone
After all, he is just another John

DVerse Open Link Night hosed tonight by Grace

Word Prompts:





He dominated his kingdom
As a true ruler never should
playing dominoes with servants
whenever he could

Although his indomitable skill
Preceded him in the land
His Dominican queen
could never understand

As head of the domicile
She banned it by demand
His passion for a stupid game
So random and unplanned

Her boredom was of the play
That never tested his skills
Just a game of luck she said
You should work on the treasury bill

Pressured by the queen’s wisdom
Which was pure omniscience
He finally let the dominoes fall
Terrified of her malificence

Escape To Solace

Energized by your appearance
Seduced by your presence
Captured by your perseverance
Awakened by your caress
Passion aroused with your finesse
Excellence achieved by your experience

Taken by your curiosity
Overwhelmed with your generosity

Surrounding me with perfection
Overpowering me with your protection
Luring me to that special place
Astounding me with your charms
Carrying me in your arms
Escaping to the quantum of solace

Christine Bolton

This was my first attempt at an Acrostic poem. Hope you enjoyed it!
