Meh, I'll think about. It'd take a lot of digging though.

Yes but it would be very nice to be able to read it all together unless you feel unsafe about printing it here in one piece... it is a good story and you may want to publish it when you are done... so  its up to you... snippets are nice too!

Yesterday

The summer ended and a warm breeze still filled the fall trees with the slightest nip in the air.
Colors changing and leaves dancing about the boughs at a slightly lively pace,
Others breaking away as if frightened by the nip that slapped at them as they sashayed about!

Days passing and skies growing darker the bitterness of winter trying to edge out the sweetness of the summer sun... yet still the warm sensations of that lovely summer hung on for dear life although it struggled in a painful manner, trying to retain the warmth and feelings it had stirred in heat of the season.. Such passion it spread such joy it brought.. a warmth that never a winter could erase.....

As cold and brutal as the winter its bitterness brings yet another passion,tumultuous storms stirring up the air sending a cold rain down, causing a shivering cringe of ripples in its path, a coolness that temporarily blocks out the joyous warmth and brings with it a new sharp icy cold that sends animals into their shelters and humans into their homes inviting a physical warmth to stir amongst the nester's cuddled within their walls. Longing for the heat from the sun and finding that warmth within themselves.. in their nurturing and loving manners.. warmth reins true to form and yonder skies see no sun hovering, but a cool blanket of snow and a bitter wind that blows sharply against all that brave its rage. Soon the days are warm and the coolness eases again as new growth springs forward and new life emerges from the heat of the nests and the sun begins to dance across the morning skies warming the soil and air, as the wind still stirs its restless breaths amongst the trees and across the blossoming fields of green!

Yes, the sun brightens the world and fills us all with a heady aroma of flowers and a drying of the ground, sending me off into a wonderful world of memories of sweetest warmest summer of my existence...The memories a cold winter could never erase, a memory of dreams of love and life and a joy I will cherish for the rest of my life..

              Come Dance with me!
 
   Come dance with me  and feel my heart as it pounds
so close to yours...

   Come kiss me sweet upon my neck as we glide across
the floor...

   Come whisper love into my ears, with breath so sweet
and warm...

   Come pull me close into your arms and keep me safe
from harm ...

   Come raise the hairs upon my skin, with touches soft
 and sweet...

   Come dance with me forever and our lives will be
complete...

   Come hold me now and tell me that you'll never
let me go...

   Come tell me with a reverence that you'll always
love me so...

   Come kiss me now and hold me tight and stay with me
each night...

   Come lay beside me in the dark, and fill my nights
with life...

   Come caress my breasts and stroke my face with your
fingers oh so right...

   Come  join with me and one we'll be, into the
morning light...

   Come fly with me and be my love, my heart,my soul,
my life!

Karen your writing is enchanting reading


I just scribbled this after being inspired by you

Silence flows like a babbling brook across smooth stones
Glistening shimmering waters edge beckons out for chilling
Crayfish follow and challenge teasing toe moments
Trout leaping to touch a silvery moon fall and anoint our thoughts
A heron stabs and studies and stabs some more and quickly swallows

Wolf calls but seldom seen we feel its soulful knoll play upon our spine
Looking for those calculating eyes amid the pines and nettle
We quickly gather thoughts with pace and run for steam and kettle
The door is closed the room is dark the cup is filled and bed is calling
Heart pounding we extend our ears to night and tomorrow seek another fright

 Its a dogs life!

Around and around my tail goes,
my heart is beating fast!

Trying to catch that tail of mine,
but its moving way to fast..

Like a dog who's caught its tail,
and chews and chews all day..

I stand up tall and think I've won,
but then it runs away!   

Oh my word,that circle turns so fast,
I am completely out of breath!

Its a never ending chore it is,
cause my tails attached to my a**!

The droning sound the computer makes, the screens bright glowing face!
The creaking sounds of heat and wood a house settling down in place.

The buzz off to the left, of a mosquito's buzzy hum.
The quiet dripping faucet, from a tub that needs to be plumbed.

The high pitched sound of a refrigerator, I hear from another room.
It brings a feeling of loneliness, sadness, and gloom.

I hear the dog stir in his sleep, a dream of play, I think.
The muscles twitch the eyes move fast, a clue of fun from days gone past!

The heat remains from earlier still, My sleep will not come now.
Restless hot and tired and sweat upon my brow.

So tired I am from life's trials, so much Ive done with loads of smiles.
Tonight I sit here all alone and wonder where my life has gone.

The day I sat and watched TV and let my brain decay,
Then there was a day I prayed, That God would take it all away.

Sometimes when I was all alone and darkness did descend.
I cried many nights for God that time would for me, soon end.

And when my cries went on deafened ears, My heart withdrew from me,
And somewhere back in that struggle I was lost somewhere at sea.

So loud the sounds ones soul does make,
when alone in the world..I shiver and shake..

I hate the sounds from inside the dark, the place within my soul..
It grinds and ebbs against my heart like the tide upon the shore

It washes in, it washes out, the emotions that flood my mind!
Like sands upon the beach in the memories of time.

I wonder now these long long nights, what lies ahead for me....?
Is it done this life of mine? Is silence whats left for me...?

I hate the quiet, so lonesome here, when the soul cries out to be free.
Give me strength to carry on until My Heart finds me!

                           My  Treasure

You are the treasure of my heart, and the peace in my soul. Your the
love of my life and you make me whole.

You are sun in the sky on a dark, gloomy day...Your the moon and the
stars when the fogs in the way....

You are my world when the walls, seem to fall. You are my strength,
when I have none at all.

You are the light that lights my way... You are reason I wake every day.

You are my treasure, my prize, worth holding. You have given me life,
and love without folding.....

 A treasure I cherish, my life is complete, all my love I give away,
and lay at your feet......

Today
Heated at the furnace, forged from toil
 Quenched in sweat, and hardened by time,
Kissed by airborne molten steel
Fed on promise and humble pie,
I dine but not alone, my needs are few
But fewer still my gains
Today I laugh

laying awake, glary eyed and cold,
Disbelieve the sadness that unfolds
Remembering schools, the emphasise placed
On using tools, Learn a trade and skills
To strive for higher goals
The lesson learned is how to fight
Today I smile

Sitting alone on Buryhill Bank
So quiet now, tranquillised by deprivation
Yesterday Hooters sound, Stampings slam
Smoke belching from every orifice
Lights like thousands of fireflies
Pulsate memories now
Today I think

Northward bound in search of hope
I stare in disbelief
Foundations where proud factories stood
Desolation far as my eyes can see
Sickened angry, yet for the people sad
Was this bombsite Sheffield?
Is progress really shopping-malls?
Today I wipe a tear from my chin

You know what you have done
More destruction than Hitler caused
Everywhere I look I see your mark
Remember this,
 He who soweth nothing shall reapeth the same
Sit on your money pile but guard it well today

I don't want to go there Karen sounds like a pretty grim place to me. Must have been a dark time for you?

The droning sound the computer makes, the screens bright glowing face!
