In the doorway
where she stood
a blur of self-doubt
heat lightning a brief flash
pursuant task-- confidence.
Back straight, chest back
each breath a forward step
sipping courage, no regret
she offered him a light.
Poetic Bloomings Prompt#113:Hook, Line and Sinker
Coyness. You need to put that aside if it means having the chance to know a man who might be your true love.
ha. nice....sometimes it takes a bit to muster up that courage to make the first move toward a relationship...or a hope...love moments of small courage like this though...smiles.
Ah, those were the days--when anybody worth knowing carried something to smoke and/or a way to ignite a fire.
I especially like "each breath a forward step"...nice write Laurie...
A courageous moment perfectly captured.
Yes, sometimes courage has to be sipped with every small step. Lovely stuff, thank you.
Smartly incisive. Well done.
Every journey starts with that first step... :)
Love that daring courageous step to romance - love is the greatest unknown...
Like a woman who can take the first step..lucky guy!!
'Each breath a forward step' ... now that's perfectly brilliant! I can just see her doing that, now.
Nothing like a woman bold enough to approach what she wants. Love it!
So that was how it all started. It went on to big things, maybe even marriage! Nicely Laurie!
It is the new way of things !, or perhaps some old way come back ( around) again, cheers Laurie
Your poem is perfect ....
lifes passage...nicely done!
I really like your take on the picture.
Delightful - a true evocation of this stage of life.
I like this and the way you have woven the words around the image. Very clever and much to admire.
A yes, she struck it lucky with this guy!
Sexy, sexy, sexy.
I can sort of feel her holding her breath in your words. Well done.
Well done, Laurie. You can feel her taking a deep breath.
