random Sunday night thinking

I answer poetry
with poetry
a dialogue
socratic in method

speaking not in tongues
but questions, as if
circular reasoning
like my tongue

will tease out
and seduce truth
into declaring itself mine
always mine

if I will stop
all foreplay
and take it,

deep and secret
as sacred things
are meant to go

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    This is nice. I’ve run out of words for the night. Sleep well, Susan.

    Its amazing how sensual and seductive this is, giving tongue to charged words.

  5. ……………….”as if

    These lines intrigue me, so ripe with so many potential meanings….

    Truth is a slippery lover…seducing the seducer…be careful….

    I like this very much, Susan, because I appreciate things that provoke taking a second look. I too see finding one’s truth as a relationship. And who can deny the sexuality inherent in all relationships?…something our current religions have stripped from the script.

    Teasing, as pleasing, is best done by tongue… 😉

    And lovely dialogue it is, Susan.

    Love the first few lines. Meanwhile, I wrote a poem and was going to send it to you to read…just remembered now. Fingers crossed, that I remember before the day ends and send it to you

    Like the spirit of it… circle the words.
