On the Night Stand

On the Night Stand2

Max had wanted her from the first.

Your freckles and long legs haunted me.

Ophelia seemed expert at keeping men at bay.

Made me want you more.

6 month courtship.

Finally she consented to a “fling”.

He left her apartment uncertain.

13 years later he woke up next to her and counted his lucky stars.

Another couple, two more winding their way through love.

It’s hard to predict what the outcome will be.

But, they have each other. And sometimes that’s enough.

Save

Hazel

Hazel

Not quite brown.

And not really green.

A little abstract painting in each one.

Intelligent and plaintive.

Saw a tear leap out like a fish jumping.

Yet  joy is clearly visible when you smile.

Could spend all afternoon and evening,

looking for a place to rest inside them.

Quiet when you gaze back at me.

Experimenting with that digital camera again. Love the way it creates distortion with movement. Hazel eyes are beautiful. I’m actually thinking of another character here, but we’ll wait to introduce her. It’s enough to see how much she is adored.
