she sings
la la la
chicken neck on string
cotton skimpy
tucked in stepins
mud between shell toes
good catch in bucket

hand grasps arm
she smiles
   mudbugs
   for yo man
   beb?

she nods
twirling her pretty self
round
in the mud
lady is small girl happy

charcoal man
knew her when
she was little
skinny
she plumped sassy early
he set his eye

  sit on yo man knee
  bebette
  tell him yo envie
  what you binhavin crave for

lady pouts pretty
fiddles with Panama
top shirt button
smiles in his face
amber eyes
each precise black eyelash
shining
warm smell of ripe tomato
still in ground

fais-do-do
pretty dress
music

    hmmm
    all dat?

she twirls in cotton skimpy  
sweet legs flashing

charcoal man laughs
   gon make
   crowder peas
   févi
   rice beb?

she twirls again

gon buy me dress?  

charcoal man
gon eat good
tonight

She's such a pretty little thing,
and he can't get her out
of his blood.

Smiling here.

Not only am I grateful for my suggested daily requirement of Charcoal man and his lady, but I have finally put their saga into their own little home (folder) on my desktop.

You have a style all your own!
This one seems quaint to me, but fun
in a rather sensuous way!

Write on Dear LADY!

Every Day's a Blessing
And Gift-Wrapped from Above,
Share it with another
And Spread the Father's Love!!!

May You come to Know His Best Blessing

Write on Lady...you're right on!

Now - while the leaves still dance on the wind
While the moon and the clouds come spinning
Will you whisper my name again?
Again..and again....
