My word for 2018:
My Choice

The still, scented air

The still, scented air seeped into flared nostrils
and for one loaded moment
he held her gaze -
then his eyes skimmed across her skin -
so tactile was his look that
she shuddered, and swayed slightly
wishing the moment would never end.
His heart would forever be filled with memories of the
sight before him.

Their clothes were left in a heap,
and as time fell away
flecks of sunlight moved across the sand.

The words to play with were:
still  scent  sight  fell  fleck  sway
load  heap  skimmed  held  end  fill

Inger, what a sensual experience with your writing here. I went to the ocean myself with the words, but not as peaceful. Nice poem.

Glad you enjoyed both pieces. Not everyone is a fan of the story verse so I started writing a second piece.

Hopefully next week's list will allow for a more detailed encounter to "As the Whirl Turns..." :)
