CCCLXII - The Lady in the Green Chair


dVerse invited us to write an 'impressionist' poem.
Using a photo from The Box of Erotic I attempted to capture
the spirit, an impression, of the photo without actually describing it.

The Lady in the Green Chair

Green leather, lightly marked,
Part a barrier and part a chair.

Floral fabric, green and sleeveless,
A creamy thigh, purposely bare.

A stocking suggests a sensuality
A hand invites you to compare.

Half hidden and yet with intent,
She watches, teasing and aware.

  1. smiles..i think you captured her well.. i often find the not so obvious more erotic than when you see just everything...always good to have a bit of mystery left..smiles

  2. oh yeah, i feel her tease...smiles...just a hint and a beckon...smiles....i agree claudia, mystery is good...smiles.

  3. Vivid and mysterious, although somehow I think there's a good ending here...

  4. This is hot, JC. Words really are not dependent at all on the photo. Smiles.

    Lovely one.

  6. This is great, Cosmo! It can't be better than that. A suggestive pose poised for the kill, teasing to no end waiting to strike!


  7. I love the stockings. And that green dress reminds me of Spring. When will it arrive. xx

  8. Now that's the sort of girl you don't take home to meet the family..i.e. if you don't want to be disinherited.

  9. The last stanza is very sensually done ~ Nice share ~


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
