She was
Dark hair and storm laden
Eyes
The salt spray of the Sea
In a winter tempest
Her voice was the ruddy glow
Of a lantern on a distant
Shoreline
She was warm sweaters
And soft linen skirts
The red hot fire
In her fingers
Finding their way under
faded grey shirts
and across sore muscles
She was the ache
In his heart when the bow
Of the ship was pointed away
from her
and the sunlight on his face
When it was pointed toward
She was the sails
And the anchor
Dry land
And the deep ocean
And she was a
Vast yawning heaven
Full of stars

    Only you can write like this. Beautiful! And I’m excited to hear about this book you mention! I want to know more! πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Beautiful Lady! The book is called Pantheon and it’s an anthology of stories which surround the central theme of a group of Goddesses. I am working on the last story for it now and hopefully will start submitting it for publication by February. I’m excited to get it done. Some of the stories are on my blog. “Warsong” “The Dragon and the Damsel” and “Daughter of the Phoenix”

      the last story is coming in slowly, taking a lot of time to write. Almost all of the stories deal with heavy emotions so unfortunately that never makes for quick writing. Lots of breaks and rethinking things.

      I’ll be sure to let you know when I get it done!

      πŸ™‚
