delicious urges boiled and simmered
as she watched the gorgeous man-boy swim
diving into the mist and spray of the sea once again
watching his bare skin glisten as he emerged into the sun
lying there on the beach she allowed herself to daydream
of feeling him against her, of tasting the salt on his skin
drunk on the thought, she languished, half asleep
not noticing his approach until she heard a voice above her
“Sorry to intrude but I was watching you watching me…”
and that is how they met

So my friend Gigi has been writing a series of short stories How They Met, spinning fabulous tales of could be couples’ first encounters. If you haven’t read any of them, you really should. Anyway she inspired me…and the above poem is a tip of my hat, if you will, to her.
