Remembe(red) Tuesday: A Conjuring Experiment

In every sideways glance, each batting of the eyelashes,

secret smiles are exchanged with a bashful smile…

Each quiet whisper is the beginning – all over again

Heartbeats race, butterflies flicker within nervous stomaches

clammy palms begin to sweat

a deep crimson blush rises on cheeks

hands balled up into tight fists, thrust beneath legs to hide

toes tapping quietly in anticipation

Each moment, so precious

each second together, so fleeting

Life begins in their company, ends with their departure

left waiting in anxious excitement until the next blissful encounter

I am back! Today marks the first day in quite a while that I’ve finished my Write On Edge writing prompt – formerly The Red Dress Club. We were asked to conjure something – a feeling, an object, a person, a season – whatever we wanted, in less than 100 words.

Can you guess what I chose?

    I enjoyed reading this, the giddy excitement of emotion. I think my favorite part was:

    Each quiet whisper is the beginning – all over again

    I felt like I was inside of a secret here, such a private moment.

    Until the word “they,” I thought this was a great teenage crush kind of moment. Now I’m not so sure! But you captured the nervous excitement of my high school crushes beautifully, let me tell you. :)

    “left waiting in anxious excitement until the next blissful encounter”
