Woven with Desire

We were woven
with desire, you and I,
enticed by promises
to explore friendship 'til
flickers fanned to flames,
hearts unpacked of baggage
brought to this union, clamps
undone, bulldozed of notions
not exact to our particulars,
which missed us, served up
another story. Ours-
a simple giving to each
other, prayers projected
but exceeded.

This is woven from word lists of the inimitable Shay over at Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads and offered for the G-Man for Friday Flash 55.

  7. This is so lovely. By the way your link on FF55 didn't work. I got here by going to your profile, then your blog.

    1. It's a hurdle for me- I've tried a couple of things people have kindly suggested but I'm missing a step that they tke for granted but I mess up. Thank you for your persistence- I appreciate it.

    1. Thanks. When I was young, my mother encouraged me to pray for the man who would become my husband. Although that presupposed a number of things, I found it meaningful at the time. I told my Honey that I prayed for a strong and mighty oak but I found the great blue sky.

    1. Thanks, Patti. I think I was missing John since he went back to Italy way before I do.
