Because this dude does sensuality better than any poet I know…I give you for Valentine’s Day, my voice reading Braeden Michael’s Instantly Inflamed! YAAASSSS
Haiku about the many phases of love written by my dear sister, Dr. K.E. Garland at Kwoted.
Most of you guys know me by way of ALL OF the words that I string together on this blog.
However, I have often been told that I have a very nice speaking voice.
In fact, my blogging wonder twin, T Wayne, at A Joyful Process once described my voice as dulcet toned.
Don’t believe me?

Happy Valentine’s Day! 💞
samples of bliss on pretty dishes
elements of the universe served
one of each for you and me.
We gather in our tribes
celebrating the beautiful days
the crumbs of happiness caught on lips
smiling with full mouths
These dreams we carry with us
packed up and set within invisible cases
slung over the shoulder and peered at
while waiting for the light to change,
green we move forward
creeping and taking time to just inhale
the feelings of our being.
Flowers in a vase and champagne taste on tongue

Today, I give you:
A piece written by a charming and brilliant poet, Braedenmichaels. He’s one bad dude with paper and pen! YAAASSS!
Recitation by Lady G.
I’ve undressed your kindness
and taste the sweet tea
I’ve undressed your words
and swallow your charm
I’ve undressed your candor
and step into your confidence
I’ve undressed your intellect

I’ve undressed your beliefs
and sleep with your poetry
I’ve undressed your receptiveness
and dance with your fire
I’ve undressed your sharpness
and licked your bitterness
I’ve undressed your magnetism
and latch on to your spell
I’ve undressed your enchanted eyes
and grip your mysterious soul
I’ve undressed your broken star
and see a magnificent galaxy
An excerpt from “The Second Coming” by William Butler Yeats (1919).
