Memories

I look around the room and the memories come back. Some fondly caressing, some hard hitting – but they are all there – clear as daylight.

The anticipation as we climb higher. The exhilaration looking down from the peek. The funny feeling in the stomach as we go round and round. Giggling like kids, we ride the ferris wheel to celebrate our golden anniversary.

And that little glass ball that shimmers with every touch, like our love, glistening more and more with each passing year.

As if on cue, you pick it up and give it a gentle shake. We smile and the sun peeps out from behind the clouds.

Prompt from The Light and Shade Challenge

This love shall endure

This love shall endure

Tough love

Demons of doubt casting dark shadows
Over pastures of green and golden meadows

Rumbling thunder and ravaging rain
Springing out from separation’s pain

That green eyed mistress whose very gaze
Boils lakes putting deserts in their place

Fountains of spring and song of a lark
Frozen and trodden under a cold heart

All those things and much much more
This love shall endure!
