Your line for this week is:

He laid awake and said the name into the night.
He laid awake and said the name into the night.
The syllables danced in the moonlight,
Caressed the stars on their velvet sheet,
A mortal at this goddess’s feet.
Her name resounded crystal clear,
Rolled off his tongue for the angels to hear,
His heart was ignited, a passionate flame,
How had he lived, before she came?
Everything brighter, both beneath and above,
Touched by her presence, and undying love.
He closed his eyes, shutting out the sky,
Breathing her name on a whispered sigh,
As night passed over and daylight dawned,
He awoke refreshed, as if reborn.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
