NaPoWrimo 21 & 22

21 Starre Road

Lavender lotion on paper skin highlights deep set veins that create life maps of tales and truths and hidden things. I follow them with my wide eyes and I take in the smell of roses and powder and early morning conversations over coffee. She closes her eyes as I brush her hair into waves of memory that ebb and flow.


I gave up chocolate for lent
and this is how it went;
I didn't think about it
until the creme eggs wept
chocolate tears onto my tongue
and icing on my teeth -
never was there such delight
at such a sweetly meet.
