Hot Cross Lovers

 

wind in the rigging and in the hair on your skin,

in the mixing bowl of our bed

all the best ingredients come together

 

always room for a little extra spice and now

we lie, steaming slightly

like warm hot cross buns in the moonlight

 
 
 
Kristina Jensen considers herself a ‘poet afloat’, living as she does among the waterways of the Marlborough Sounds. She loves wild food, especially her very own trademark wild weed pesto. She writes freelance foodie articles, publishing both locally and internationally, and submits poetry with gay abandon to whoever takes her fancy.
