The Stream

 Wordle 486 


Prompt words in red.

Your mouth,

     a fire as we kiss.

Your trim arm,

     a lean tree, strong yet supple, holds me.

Thoughts flee,

     fly off from the present,

     seem embarrassed to bear witness.

After this,

the stream continues on,

     babbling like a gossip,

     unable to keep a secret.

We dive in for a swim

  1. I like the description of the babbling stream.

    1. Thank you. We read about "babbling brooks," so that must mean they must tell secrets downstream!
