Tree of Life. {Poem}


A tree of naked bodies.

Beautiful, Graceful, Poetic,
The branches:
spreading fingers, pointed toes.
A thick trunk of human flesh
supporting each other.
Back bending.
Forward bending.
Deliberately touching.
Sensually stretching.
Wrapping and intertwining.
Layering body,
on top of body,
on top of body.
A perfectly full tree of life.
A living, breathing tree of souls.
United and joined as one.
No separation. No otherness.
Not a single broken branch.
It is whole, uncut, Love.


Love elephant and want to go steady?
