L ~ Late Night Winds













Late Night Winds~

Moonlight slid past the open window

through a thin cotton gown

ghost hands caressing

secret places.

Curtains dance in the crisp breeze

over pale shoulders,

painting a memory

in the winds.

  5. Loved the imagery here.. How you keep up with the various blogs of your, a wonder. I am working on a second novel while shopping the first, and keeping to my posts and I tell you, it's a wonder I have time to breath. You're going to have a nice chap book at the end of this process.

    1. It's not always an easy feat. This A-Z Challenge has been an extreme test for time management, and effective use of my reading and writing. I am working on a novel (or a series foundation) while several others that are started, but no where near completion beg for attention time and again. I just keep moving forward. I hadn't thought about a chap book, but that's a very good idea Brenda. Please let me know when the first book hits the shelves, you know I will want a copy. :-)

  9. By far, one of my favorites - and not solely because you make mention of "secret places"...

    =)

    1. If I could picture your face, as you attempted to convince me that the "secret places" were not what drew you in... would I find a shade of rose upon your cheeks? ;-)

    1. Thank you Jo. Figurative language is our paintbrush, and anywhere that we are able to land our words is the canvas. I am glad you are enjoying them.
