Written for Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads:
So the challenge for today is to write about lace. You can choose to write about its dark side, a wedding dress, grandma’s table cloth, curtains, doilies, clothing, sensual references, etc.
I have sat at a table
laid with expensive,
elegant lace. The workmanship
and pattern captured Victorian
thoughts–high lace collars,
frills winding ’round
gentlemen’s cuffs–all so lovely,
yet, give me lingerie in scarlet
or black lace, and I must struggle
to pace myself. Erotic thoughts flush
my skin, burn my eyes, and allow me
to add in, the feel of satin sheets.
