You struck me like lightning.

You rend my life in two

Into before and after

I met you.


You warm me by candle light.

You fill me with the slow

radiating glow

of embers.


As if I stumbled in the night

Into a large orange grove

Full of blooms

My favorite scent.


And here I am

At night

Deep in a forest of orange blossoms

Lit by flickering light

In the perfect place and time

Caressed by Fate and the luck

Of your lightning strike.

Sorry Stella!

I was stuck reading the Dune saga, a scifi series that I hadn’t read before.  That was about 6 months of my spare time!!!

Evocative, sensual. Love the use of scent via orange blossoms, I like it too.

Thank you

I try to incorporate other senses, but it’s a struggle because I’moverwhelmingly visual.
