Covenant

My covenant,

should you choose to stay:

the juice of an orange

broken free from its flesh

running a tart rivulet,

crisp blue mornings

under Egyptian cotton sheets,

sweaty, limp limbs

plaited under a black silk sky,

a kiss…mixed with new rain,

bodies carried

across alabaster tipped waves,

golden sand

to mould under

scarlet painted toenails.

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
