Places I Have Lived

St. Joe
(never Ohio)
now in Orlando
(via some days in Kissimmee)
on the far reaching edges of insanity
and at times in mild hysteria
(where I’m known to grow purple wisteria)
but none can compare
to your eyes
(where I’ve also died)

  1. Ah Jilly… many times you make me chuckle aloud! 🙂 And I thank you for that. LOVE the way you’ve fit in the word “kiss” here….and love the rhyming – most especially hysteria and wisteria! Fun fun write! 🙂

      2. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing this with me; I am honored.
        The Rose
        Reminder of
        Blood that steals
        thy sting,
        O Death.
        Saints who teach
        these secrets
        share in the suffering the
        glory, the day is lost in
        Hearts as are our
        hearts without Him.

    1. Thanks, Laura. I’m writting quite a bit lately , just not posting much. I considered this to be something of fluff to meet a prompt. My camera is in need of work – debris on the lens, and I’m ready to get back to shooting, too. Wrote one item on The Extraneous Now…still thinking about it 🙂


      1. I know what you mean about fluff though not in reference here but to my own prompt responses – they have the worth though of creative writing exercises so we must not eschew them!
        Fluff on the lens though is more serious!
