The composition began to flow

From her heart into the pen

As she writes her hopes and dreams

A new chance on the horizon

A freedom that is exciting

Potential in so many directions

But mostly an opportunity

To learn who she really is

After all this time as someone else

A daughter, a wife, a mother, a friend, a lover

Now she is the most important role


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – composition

Fanning The Flames

it was a cold night
you and me by the fire
watching the flames dance
innocent at first
then the heat began to rise
your lips on mine
our hands exploring
our hearts beating faster
our eyes devouring every inch
and when at last
the moment of discovery came
we called each others names
and collapsed in passion’s bliss
watching the embers die out
