  The sizzle and pop of the embers on a torch The first star that blinks in the horizon One exhale of strength, the flames lick higher Revolution of will in the world and the stars shine high     Photo: Campfire Under the Stars Aaron Spong

I looked and saw the picture of the sad puppy
that too reminded me of her eyes

the ones in their own space
the ones who lack grace

I, the unsuspecting virgin

a newbie in many ways

Then there came the time that I kissed you upon the warmth of your cheek and held the still of your hand.

Write until you can see the story in even the most simple of things
