I held my breath against the moment,
quivering,  somewhat motionless...
anticipating,  waiting, wondering if...


The beat of a trembling heart pressing
against ears that heard only a slight
sigh beyond the thunderous roar of
crimson waters flowing ravenously down
into the depths.  Deep, clear waters...
running slow...carrying truth and
honesty....ambition and inhibition..
a twinkle of an eye searching the
smooth tender skin of one who would
now become a cherished jewel...

a friend...

How beautiful Barry!
Your muse is back and feeling on top of the world.

In the midst of winter,
I found there lives within me..
An invincible summer.

That was a beautiful line. My heart skipped a beat on the last word.

ah hah!  Now I see why everyone seems to be flocking to your post!  To me, it depicts that almost simultaneous longing and apprehension, that moment in between... wonderful writing Magnus.

it must be the quiver
that quavers so well...

I hadn't had a chance to read this, sir,
but now I'm oh so glad I did...

Crimson water:  channels for the streams of love, the pulse of life we carry in our veins that sometimes leaves a whisper much louder than Niagra falls....

How beautiful it is when it sparkle clearly in the light and leaves breath tremulous!  I don't know if such winds can ever be truly caught, but they know every nook and cranny of one's soul.

Karen
