Here’s my contribution:
What You Wish For
Nestled among grapevines upon this rise far from prying eyes he unrolls her blanket, pours her wine, arranges cheeses and spreads, fans out crackers, meticulous, each detail. He queries if she appreciates the privacy of his secret place, if she is happy and in love as he. Sipping, inhaling, savoring, seduced by sliding sun.
She lays, quiet.
Curious. “Isn’t this exactly what you sought with him?” He indulges in another tender morsel.
Fragrances of freshly turned earth. Nearby, a cool, shallow hollow.
She shivers. Silently welling, a tear spills.
He kisses her taped mouth.
Receding sun welcomes coming romance.
