REUNION


The Rogue Speaks:

I knew he was waiting for me. I could feel his essence prickling my neck. It was silent in the grove, save for the call of a crow to its mate, and I could smell the pungent, familiar aroma of dry pine straw beneath the trees.

The floorboards creaked as I approached the door. Silently, he appeared and held out his hand. I touched his fingers, and a current ran through me, to that deep, secret place. I gasped. I could taste the sweat on his lip.

In the decrepitude of that dwelling, everything was once again fresh and new.

Oh boy, this could be a real page turner LOL. Reminds me of a romance novel, ha. Good job.

Secret rendezvous? Lost loves rekindles? The after life reunion? Sad yet delisciously sensual Judie. I could go in different directions with this one.~Ames

Wow, what a post! I can picture this as part of one of those romance novels with Fabio (or whoever his replacement is, since he's getting on in years) on the cover. Great job!

Sounds like a wonderful new chapter in their lives.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

So is this a real beau- human that is? Or perhaps not?

Magyar said...

Too, in my own complimentary (complementary) fashion, I'll add this sort of 'haibun':

footsteps
creek up the old stairway
the same face

Judie said...

Thank you, Doug! It's perfect!!

Magyar said...

__You are very welcome Judie!
'Creek' is the stream of footsteps as they 'creak' on the stairway... a word trick that should never be used in haiku/senryu, as some masters say.

Dazee Dreamer said...

Karen S. said...

Oh Judie. What a beautiful romantic tale. I loved this.

It's funny...because now when I read this I hear you saying it in my head...

And it's cool.

But a little hard to concentrate.

Lovely.
