First Kiss #poetry #dVerse + WIH update!

As I browse through the catalogue
of our enchanted moments,
I cast my mind back to that first kiss:

Bliss! So chaste and pure, yet shot through with
the promise of much more

So happy we have come this far:
have come to this.

Written for dVerse

Tonight, Linda hosts quadrille, where we write 44-word poems to include a given prompt word. This time, the word is ‘browse.’

In other news…I received the paperback proof of Wounds I Healed today, and it is looking good. I’ve surprised even myself at putting this together in two weeks! I also hit 2000 followers on WordPress, and the timing couldn’t be better for reaching this milestone. A huge thank you to all of my followers and regular readers! Stay tuned for further news and exciting announcements, and don’t forget that Gabriela and I will be hosting a live Twitter space on Saturday at 9 am CT – 10 am ET (USA)/ 3 pm BST (UK). You can access this via the following link: – hope to see you there!
