In the shadow of geraniums
passion with geraniums as backdrop
The marrow morning, hot lipped
Past the parked buildings creeping,
Narrow reeds river the green sapped
Root drunk dreams unfurling
Bud clenched fingers burning
Unraged red: hot chisel kisses,
Simmered, drenched in sunned spices,
Open the passionate mouths,
The night’s yearning.

geraniums keep mosquitoes and ticks away, essential oil for example use them for your dogs or even horses…
these insects detest their smell
most balconies here used to have geraniums. little did they know this humble plant has such great medicinal significance. I find them extremely useful and helpful plants that have nothing erotic about them, unlike roses or orchids.
Nic, Life is full of eroticism, as Anais Nin said, and these flowers, when they express themselves, and there is someone to witness, is one of the most erotic moments possible. Everything that is yearns to be and we need to be conscious of that.
We rub camomile and lavender on our dogs, and they are tick free. We don’t go in for the chewable tablets prescribed by the vets.
cedar geranium keep most bugs away from humans and animals and cedar is good for bed bugs too
lavender is good too, first time I hear about camomile, citronella is what most people know.
there is eroticism yes but it depends on our mood and biochemistry which can be manipulated either intentionally or unintentionally, by ourselves or by others.
some things however could/would/should never act or be as erotic no matter what for any psychologically healthy and mentally fit individual. I dare say the only thing that might break the rule on and off even as borderline psychosis is autoeroticism.
