The Art of Seduction

You hold in your hand
A golden orb
Heavy with promise
The sparks fly
As you tear the thick rind
And the rich perfume
Fills the air
One by one
Luscious segments
Are revealed
Finally you hold the fruit
To my awaiting lips
Sweet juice overwhelming
My senses
Surrendering completely
To the sensual pleasure
Of the orange
In your hand

  1. Have you thought of a career as an orange seller? With lines like this, you’d do well 🙂

    On a different note, a few years ago I spent time in Ukraine at a theology college. When they think about the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, they think of it as an orange and not as an apple, which seems to be the dominant western image.

  2. I really like the idea of a ‘golden orb heavy with promise.” Then later the mention of the luscious segments. You have me hungering now for such an orange.
