On high

you elevate me

transecting cloud tufts

ice crystals with jagged tips

brush skin, so unaccustomed

to this maiden flight

with fistfuls of feathers

i grip your Icarus wings

my essence you bare

a blinding

penumbral flare

let us climb higher to taunt

the feeble winter sun

solar warmth shall fuse,

into one

our waxen hearts

  1. This lifted my spirits. Put a smile on my face and made my heart tingle a little bit. I think this one might be my new favorite. To be honest though I love them all. I feel like I shouldn’t pick one over the other and then I know you’re going to write more amazing pieces so then I’ll have to keep saying this is my new favorite. hahaha But I really like this one. 😀 You’re writing has always struck a nerve with me.

    1. Still blows my mind how different our writing styles are … yet how we meet somewhere in the middle. The middle is a great place, where the idealist sits and offers you wine …as you sit in the bathtub … wondering how you missed a spot on the tile after your last frantic bleaching. There is a monkey in the corner telling you I’m boring but I’m so glad you ignore him. Glad I gave you a tingle – it’s about time I reciprocate 😉😊


    1. I have a thing for hard maple syrup candy … but it’s probably a Canadian thing! How about some creamy white chocolate lil avo … though you are probably rich enough in flavour 😊 Thanks got your great comment 💕
