In-sp(i)ring, Tu lips


in BARE feet
i walk the length
of your
tu lips

grass lush, paths cut
along holy ground

i tip toe
through your
tu lips

bowing reverent, or irr--,
carving covenant poems
on each inhalation

exhaling arias adoration
unleashed i skip, spinning,
swoop swing, fervor fanned
frenzy building, to the brink
where the world melts gutteral
gurgling water down the sink
drain into a kaleidiscope of
single sylables and strobe
light heart beat
moments

cause nothing says
spring like
tu lips.

A little modern day "splendor in the grass"? I will never look at tu lips the same....:)

This feels a bit naughty to me, but I LOVE tulips. They are my favorite.

Everyday Goddess said...

luscious.

Hilary said...

Very cute. Tu lips are better than one.

Fireblossom said...

Clever and sweet, Brian.

Ms. Gibson said...

Brian,
I've been away from your luscious blog for too long. *sigh*

Vicki Lane said...

Great wordplay!

Eva Gallant said...

In spring a young man's fancy.....turns to tu lips.

Pheromone Girl said...

Spring, or love, or spring and love. Personally, I like daffodils, but tulips handed to me in a twine of string and brown paper would be just fine...

Helena said...

Tu lips in the garden
tu lips in the path
but the tu lips I love best
are the tu lips in the path...♥♥♥

Love it Brian!

"grass lush, paths cut

Another brilliant write, Brian. So beautifully written...your readers hanging on every individual word.

Brian Miller said...

thank you happygirl...smiles.

Magpie said...

Dude, you've got it bad. If there were a cure, I know you wouldn't go looking for it. Obsession, addiction...I guess can sometimes be a good thing. Lucky girl! :)

Patricia Caspers said...

Lovely word play-- v. clever. I especially like the carving covenant poems stanza. A fine April beginning.

KB said...

Beautiful words and pic.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Nice, nice, nice.
Happy weekend, jj

adeeyoyo said...

From the holy beauty of spring to 'gutteral gurgling water down the sink' you can see beauty in anything and everything. What a gift, Brian! Take care...

Zuzana said...

Sensual and appealing tribute to spring and to an object of your affection.;)
Have a lovely Saturday dear Brian, here we are suppose to get a taste of summer today.;)

Hi Brian,

All I can say is that Tiny Tim is so jealous of your tip toeing through the tu lips and probably most men are jealous. And most women wish their men could tip toe the way you do.

The tu lip world will never be the same.

God bless.

Dianne said...

oh I love this abreviated style! and tu labios senior!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Awww, this one is great! It feels like spring!

Sue said...

I read this one tu times.

Enjoyed it even more the second time around.

=)

hedgewitch said...

"...carving covenant poems
on each inhalation..." <-very nice. Smooth without being slick, and a little playfulness on the tu lips. (I'm really glad you didn't go with dog wood.)

Maggie May said...

Loved your play on words! Great!

Baino said...

"tu lips" oh Brian, really. Tu twee Still, made me giggle.

annell said...

You have said it well! Pink, red, yellow, white, lavender tu lips show so many lovely colors and shades as they "death dance" opening, closing completely, and opeing again.

Heather said...

oooh, I love this! Cute...and oh so romantic!

Lorraine said...

so beautiful, a true melody of Spring I love it Brian, wow

Bonnie said...

... or tu lovers ...

R. Burnett Baker said...

This fun one needs to be a catchy song!

Little Ms Blogger said...

I agree nothing says Spring like tulips.

When I see them in my florist in January I will buy some and give to friends because it symbolizes hope to me.

TechnoBabe said...

This is getting me in the mood for spring for sure. Great fun to read this and share your words with my sweet hubby. I am particularly fond of the "strobe light heart beat
moments".

Neva Flores said...

Splendid!

TALON said...

I love the double entendre, Brian. This was fun!

Vodka Logic said...

Beautiful Brian..

trisha said...

this is PURE love brian :)
loved it.

California Girl said...

you are the most romantic man.

sigh.

Ami Mattison said...

Ah, sweet, yet fevered romanticism! The fifth stanza is indeed an orchestral swelling, "frenzy building" until we are left with only the "single syllables" of a heart beat. Love is in the air. Well-played, my friend!

Sheila Moore said...

haaaawt!

... Paige said...

beautiful

rosaria said...

You romantic you, stop it now, or...

ladyfi said...

Paul C said...

Wow, this is erotic as it reaches a climax! Masterful imagery and word play.

Tara Miller said...

Definitely puts me in the mood.... uh, for spring of course. ;) And I really like your double play on words....you do it so well

Templeton's fury said...

t(r)uly amazing!

Rhymetime(aka Pat) said...

Now it is still to cold here for any of that
Do you want to give frost bite to the cat
Also mind could go in the gutter with this one too
But I'll refrain from being like you
haha another great post
You are such a clever host

Hi Brian,

Lovely tribute to spring with beautifully crafted lines with enchanting word pictures.

Have a wonderful Sunday,

Daniel said...

I missed this one on Friday. But I wish I hadn't. Everyone needs a love poem to inspire them. This one did for me.

Syd said...

Good play on words. I like those tu lips too.

Myrna R. said...

Love it. Romance and words. You really make the combination special.

lori said...

I smiled from the first word to the last on this one. Heck, I'm still smiling. This is a bit of perfection wrapped in romantic sweetness. :)

"carving covenant poems on each inhalation" = favorite line, I also like the word play, which you seem to be a master of

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

Great thoughts on Spring and love.

All the best,
Betty

Angel said...

beautiful words dear and insiprational thoughts

Rebecca S. said...

I'll think of you and your tu lips when I'm working at the Tulip Festival here in just over a week. How would rows and rows of them affect you? Careful now :)

Goofball said...

tu lips

how inventive, now I'll definately give them a closer look when I walk by


yes cause nothing says
spring like
tu lips so I put 2 vases of them in house last weekend. Too bad they don't last long inside :(
