Sunday Photo Fiction – August 12, 2018

Fandango has supplied the photo for Susan’s challenge this week:

Come on, put your grubby hands on me,
I’ll soon have you smelling as sweet as can be,
Roll me around through your fingers and palms,
My aroma is fresh, an instigator of calm.
Sweet lemon grass and lavender oils,
Cuts through the grime and annoying soils
Trapped under the nails, will not wash away
So you use the brush, keep the germs at bay.
Start at the toes, then the knees and your bits,
Up a bit higher, to the chest and armpits,
Steam up the mirror, the walls, room and floor,
Breath in the scent, clean all over once more.
Put me back on the rack, you know the right place,
I’ll be waiting for you when you next wash your face.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I enjoyed this, but I hope that more than the face gets to see soap.
