Contemplating the Prompt of the Day



Wild Woman contemplates
the prompt of the day: lust

defined as
a passionate desire for ________

She cogitates.
Wolves?
Wilderness?
Kindness to animals?
More years on the planet?
Books?
A dog?
All of the above.

Carnality has never been
her strong suit.

She shrugs,
cackles,
remembers a blackbird heart
she truly loved and swiftly lost,
proclaims her kinship with the wild,
her unwavering companionship
of wave and shore.
Too late for lust,
she does not wish for
more.

for Sumana's prompt at Midweek Motif: Lust

  3. To be content in kinship--despite what is trounlesome in the world or deemed desireable by others--is a blessing and a grace.

  5. Sherry I am sure you lust for life for and with the wild ones on this Earth. There is no better pleasure than to sit in the forest and have the wild animals and birds accept you there if you behave quietly.

  6. Wondrous! (I'd say you describe a lust that can still be satisfied.)

  10. Yes! The lust for the wilderness — correlative with life itself, I think.

  11. Lust for nature is more likely to produce useful results than that for anything else.
