Who invented flirting ? verse

Updated on March 5, 2014

He dreams of touch and of foreplay
as he passes through
a woman's scent

Of lazy afternoons and the sounds of
her laughter and giggling
and those sighs

Just why can't we love and touch
as if there were no rules

To touch one and not all
seems so wrong

The variety of sounds of souls
of bodies and beauties

To each woman a separate but
equal attraction

Is it always all women for a mans
imagination and one man
for hers

Maybe just maybe that's why
God invented flirting

Or was it the devil?

Or was it woman?

      I had a Hub on this topic and didn't reconstruct it after a Hub catastrophe made it disappear---not intended to grace HubPages, I presume---just vanished! Glad you are getting some comments from your effort.

      I read this twice 'ahorseback' as I reminisced of the truths laced through the stanzas. Nice! And, thank you for the memories brought to life.
