Soak ~ Author Donna J. Sanders

Some people could use a soak

in a good marinade


cut the bitterness from their flesh

with a sweet citrus aid


perhaps a liquid potion

to loosen tense fibers


an infusion of flavor

baptized in a sea salt revival


sealed tight


seared just right


then left to rest

resulting in an overdue tenderness

  2. Gaaaaaaah! I love your choice of spacing! (Above and beyond your choice of words), what you do with the breaks in the lines and minimal punctuation is SO powerful!
