Welcome to my bathtub! This is where I relax and write...
THE JOY OF BATHING
The surface shimmers with reflections waiting for
My toes to merge with their own imagery,
Then ripples wrap my aching arch before
I step into the womb of luxury.
A hedonistic lowering of limbs
Is slowly escalated into bliss -
As water rises, reaching bathtub rims,
Immersion aids seduction with its kiss.
My worry stains wash off and then dissolve
While warmth massages flushing, heated skin.
A careworn creature leaves as I evolve
Into myself again, renewed within.
Such private pleasure is a joy sublime,
Erotic moments soaking up the time.
LOVE AT FIRST TRY-IT
I'm christening my new bathtub
while I'm immersed in it.
I'm contemplating curvy style
In ergonomic fit.
The molded headrest pillows me,
My neck rests on its swell
And molded armrests: luxury,
Support where hands may dwell.
I'm cradled in this comfort zone,
Caressed in liquid heat,
I yield with an ecstatic moan -
My pleasure now complete.
WARM WATER WHATEVER
We ran out of water the other day,
No town supply out here.
So if it doesn't rain for weeks
An empty tank, I fear.
See, most of the water, rain supplied
Is used in baths so deep
Wherein I lie , such luxury -
Like tea, I need to steep...
So when our water failed to run
I called for action stations;
We switched the pipe into the well,
Pumped up a taste sensation:
The well has water, mineral-rich
'Though filtered just to drink,
It has a flavour unsurpassed
- That makes my tastebuds shrink!
And as my bath, with water filled,
I saw to my distress,
Water, black and full of gunge -
I used it none-the-less.
The hue was like a good strong brew
When I got in to soak,
I gained a coat of 'Instant Tan',
My tannin bath, I joke
'They' changed the taps over, left used to be cold
But left is now scaldingly hot.
I reached out my foot, let long leg unfold,
Then richochetted off like a shot.
I blistered my sole, ejected from mold
(No longer my most favoured spot).
I blistered the air - expletives untold,
Will I toe-tap again? I think not!
The bath is a
most delightful place to wallow
The warmth relaxes body, face will follow
I happily lie for hours there-in the hollow
Luxury: water up to my chin -don't swallow-
Return to my Castle in the Air
