She Surrendered To Me

I did not peep, I gazed at the grasshopper.

I was uninhibited: I used to watch at girls who always thought they were too pretty, or I was no match for them. They kept their ego flying high, as high as a kite; what if the kite line broke? This was, anyway, a past story in which the girls turned their head away disdainfully.

This grasshopper must be a girl.

She did the same trick that failed to discourage me, just like in those olden days.

I followed her to wherever she went, so far not yet to the moon. She hopped, hopped, hopped and hopped, to get rid of me; I strode to get sticking to her.

Ten minutes was not long to me, it must be a few months to her. She surrendered to me finally.

This was what had happened, in this morning. I was in no hurry, yet everything was accomplished. Perfect.

It always feels so much better when you get something you had to work hard for.

Lol)) That was rather steamy story and unexpected..you know, people getting into trouble posting images of themselves too (that's another problem mostly men have along with falling off ladders). Well, they'll be safe here (snicker)

This grasshopper must never have encountered you before, rainfield, or she would have been well aware of your perseverance!!

She had to surrender to you, you have such a powerful personality and anybody could have felt vulnerable and weak in front of you.. Ha.. Well.. the girls in their teenage or non-teenage have a high flying ego.. the kite line gets cut only when the girls grow wrinkly and then no guy not even a baby boy looks @ them.. HAHA

Have fun..

Patience brings its rewards. You got a great photo of the grasshopper. Were you as successful with the girls?

Girls have to play hard to get, it's the nature of life :-) but she sure did surrender to your eyes though.

You chased her until she caught you. Then she gave you "the look."

Malar said...
