Your lips are warm as a summer day

Your sun burned skin tastes of salt

your eyes are the color of the sea

with my body pressed to yours

we are fire.

          1. The weather has been unusually mild and pleasant. Iโ€™m not complaining. Soon, weโ€™ll be sweltering in the heat and the seasonal bug assaults will begin. I don’t mind the bugs when hiking because Iโ€™m a guest in their house. I just don’t like them in my house because they are a bit unruly. ๐Ÿž๐ŸŒž

          2. ๐Ÿ˜ณ well, that lizard must have enjoyed the free tour of the house, like it’s own taxi service. I had a community of geckos living with me in Texas. We were friends. They kept the bugs down to a manageable population. They cursed a lot but lizard life isnโ€™t exactly high society. Itโ€™s the age of scaly things in Florida. They know how to pick a great place to live.

          3. Lizards are among the most revered species in this house. Itโ€™s a childhood thing. We never harm them. This one was definitely enjoying his stay. Now other creatures that crawl are fair game. ๐Ÿ˜Š

          4. I think the archeological record of future Florida will be the fossil remains of lizards with big grins on their fossilized faces. I wonder what kind of music they like when they are out suntanning.

          5. Waaa haaa haaa! I want to see that video. Being a Dragon Master, lizards are just part of the family. The one’s that can dance the Bossa Nova are the best.

          6. I would not guess the Robo home solution in a million years. It just goes to show how clever they are. My favorite are the Beardies. They have such cool personalities and get a long well with other house guests and fur family. You can dress them up in the latest fashion and they will rock it like a fashionista. Oh, look at me gushing over family again. โ˜บ๏ธ

          7. Yes, if you google Beardies, you’ll be charmed. They are benevolent dragons and kinda cute in a well mannered dragon way.

          8. Indeed they are, unless one has an allergy to living the grand lizard life. They look dashing in their tuxedoes and sun glasses.

          9. Me too. The kids want a Beardie too. When we can all get back in the house together weโ€™ll have a new buddy. I could probably devote all my time to a Beardie Blog. ๐Ÿค“

  2. Deine Lippen sind warm wie ein Sommertag
    Deine sonnenverbrannte Haut schmeckt nach Salz
    Deine Augen haben die Farbe des Meeres
    mein Kรถrper an deinen gedrรผckt
    sind wir Feuer.

          1. Ha! I shouldn’t complain we need it, but it does interfere with pickleball. Are you into any sports. This is a great one to try. Lots of fun and social too!
            Have a great evening, Holly!
