Remember
Him with words
Charcoaled 
On a tile

"Begorrah" 
Sure, by God 
Kathleen
You're a beauty

Unkempt 
Thick blonde hair
Tangled
Between my fingers

Green
Wide unblinking eyes
Pierce
My very soul

Press
Yourself into me 
Celebrate
Your new freedom

  5. Your poem makes me want to dance. I know, that may be an obvious part of the image but nonetheless it is your words that did it....

  6. To be emotionally freed is more than enough reason for one to dance in gladness. Everyone has the right to peace of mind. A lovely, cheerful take on the prompt!
