Cherokee Kiss

Saint Creola,
patroness of crows and Gypsies,
hear my prayer
and bless our Cherokee kiss

in the asters and black jack--
like anything--
like this.

For Play It Again, Toads #20 at Real Toads. I did Mama Zen's. (well no shirt, Shitlock.)

Sounds kind of like a song. I wonder who should sing it? ;-)

I guess I need to look it up. Black jack? A kind of liquid libation? A type of flower?

A little bit of Emmylou is always welcome. If you wrote it and she sang it, it would be a hit, for sure.

Sweet Jesus. This is big-time HAWT!!!

Every line is my favorite, but this is my favorite-favorite: "in the asters and black jack."

[Loved your comment on mine; you make me smile.]

Sioux--black jack is a yellow wildflower or weed also known as burr marigold. The seeds stick to clothes in bunches, hence the "love that sticks" label.

There is a species of not very large oak here also called blackjack(or scrub oak)--I hadn't heard that about the flower. A vivid and sweet taste to your image, and indeed, a song-like lilt as well.

I could certainly dance to this,
and like it. ♥

Nice one. Every kiss should be blessed.
Have a good Sunday

Much love...

Mama Zen said...

Perfect. It reads like a kiss. A very good kiss.

Rommy said...

It definitely would be extra lovely with a folksy voice to sing it, but it is very evocative as is.

TexWisGirl said...

haha.

Ileana said...

I didn't just read this, I sang it. Beautiful.

Kerry O'Connor said...

Susie Clevenger said...

If there isn't a patroness of crows and gypsies, there ought to be!
