A presence like a storm, or the ancient woods,

I am held diminutive, within your grasp.

Solid as the mountains, you calm me,

my sweet breath caressing your spirit.

Contentment fills me as I breathe,

your essence, musk, cedar, your freshly bathed body.

Tingling, my fingers reach for yours,

to grasp the magnetic tremors between us.

You fill the aching emptiness within me.


  1. Another good poem Strawberry girl, I like your style, most pleasurable.


  2. You are Renee's friend but I don't see you have this yet. I came here especially to give this to you.

    I Ces, happily present this award to you Strawberry Girl! You are Renee’s Friend and should rightly have this award. I shall quote my dearest friend Bella from on here.

    Bella says:

    "This one is meaningful to me in three profound ways. Firstly, it was created in honor of Renee, one human being who has made such a difference in the lives of many just by being. Her honestly, wit, intelligence, and grit are a tremendous source of inspiration. She can elicit raucous laughter and guffaws in her banter, and then turn right around and offer the most heartfelt, gentle words of wisdom and emotional support. She is a spreader of love, simple and true. And her love is infectious.

    Secondly, this award was created in collaboration with one of my best friends, Ces. She is, in Renee's own words, truly original. She is an incredible artist, both in pen and ink and paint. She is fiery passion with a gentle hand. She is laughter, fun, joy, intellectual stimulation, a sister. The concept and design of the award belong to Ces.

    Thirdly, this is a brand new award, and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…"

    And now!
    I present this award to you. here is the award logo. You can copy it from my blog:

    There you go!

  3. Strawberry girl,

    Very beautifully and sensitively written indeed. I love this line:

    "A presence like a storm, or the ancient woods"

    The similies are very to-the-point.


  4. 'my sweet breath caressing your spirit.'
    Beautiful write, you.

  5. Thank you all so much! I wanted to capture the essence of maleness without being too overt. ;p
