where the friskiness begins

romantic lunch for twoRomance?
If you were expecting Eros and candles,
this does not look much

but I could paint you a hundred portraits
of unwary couples who’ve sat down for a quick bite
and lingered long into loving.

Office gatherings
and the inter departmental eyes
that suddenly mist and gel

BFFs and secrets shared
and the one more parting glass
where platonic is swept away with the plates

Moon, roses and twilight set the seal
but a la fresco afternoons are where the friskiness begins
– and that’s the spark of romance

Written for Bastet’s pixelventures: Romance –  I usually try it in haiku or rhyme but dashing off soon for a holiday break with my beloved.
