Sweet little sisters

Linger over each shell found;

Assessing whether

the newest one

just might be a little better

than the one before;

Washing the sand away

putting each precious find

into their bucket of memories

to carry home

with them at days end.

Today at d’Verse, Linda asked us to linger on the word linger, and write a Quadrille (exactly 44 words)  using it in some form! My poem is about two sweet little girls we saw who were next to us at the beach last week. They were having so much fun collecting shells in the surf, they did not know anyone else existed.

The Promise


His eyes I hope that one day will only wonder for me

His jaw. Oh, his jaw…

I have the strange urge to touch it and run my finger down the length of it

I pretend he isn’t invading my entire mind, thoughts and my being

Dear god, his gaze…

His gaze felt as if it was piercing right through me,

As if he could easily see though my deepest, darkest desires


But I couldn’t let him,

I’m trying to protect my heart

Built a wall to shield it

And the fact how badly I was trying to resist him

Only pushed him a thousand mile past his limit

He wanted me


Real bad


He’s going to fall in love with me

I know it,

I’m falling for him too

Who knew

If he were to kiss me,

I’d have to let that kiss demolish that wall

The Deep End

Writing With An Open Heart

Everything felt safer on the shore, the water was clearer and the sky was brighter. Even from a distance each wave looked huge.

She swam to the deep end intentionally knowing that once she was there it wasn’t over yet. She feared the big waves and feared being pulled down.

Once the big waves passed she floated on her back enjoying the clear water and staring at the bright sky again.

She knew it would be a matter of time until another wave came along. However, she was prepared to do whatever it takes to keep her head above water.
