A morning moment

(100 word flash fiction)

She is standing by the stove when he enters the kitchen still half in the arms of sleep.

She turns towards him and motions towards the table. “How about a quickie?” Her smile is as delicious as chocolate on a warm tongue.

He isn’t sure when Morpheus flees. All he is delightfully aware of is that Aphrodite has engulfed them in her foamy, liquid arms.

He gives his best and when it is over, looks at her with pleasure. “What was that about?” He asks in wonder.

“Oh!” she says, nonchalantly rolling off the table. “The egg timer is broken.”


P.S. According to Hesiod‘s Theogony, Aphrodite was born when Cronus cut off Uranus‘s genitals and threw them into the sea, and she arose from the sea foam (aphros) interpreting the name as “risen from the foam”. (Source : Wikipedia)

Luscious with light - haiku

Sagittarius moon
full, pregnant, luscious with light
new beginnings

The moon laughing steals
my sleep. I give in gladly
to grand thievery

Visions meld with
poems written by moonlight
on naked skin

imagine being
moon-soaked / dream-drenched / ethereal

The moon does not know
it has entangled my soul
in webs of delight

I come undone
and then all of me is gone
only light is left
