*I can’t believe I thought for one moment that I could successfully use this prompt, and I’m not sure how I even came up with this prompt in the first place. But when you’re conspiring with a twelve year old, anything can happen. 😉 I’m determined to keep my writing streak all month though. So please just shake your head and be on your way. I’ll try to do better tomorrow.
She knew she was getting closer as the crashing of the waves could be heard just ahead. And with each thunderous roar, she felt the beckoning vibrations welcoming her home. Those undulating arms grew her anticipation, each surge increasing her desire for all she had missed. And as the last golden mound appeared, her excitement could hardly be contained. For she knew in just a few more moments she’d be dipping her eager toes in those wonderful frothy tides. One last hurdle was all it took, and then a sigh and gasp broke free. It was even more beautiful than she’d remembered, and a sea of gleaming diamonds met her wondrous gaze. The lolly she’d been enjoying suddenly fell forgotten. The shiny morsel deeply embedded in the powdery sand. The jaw-dropping scene left her limp and bedazzled. The setting much too impressive for any other cares.
Another day dims but the light of your love radiates brighter than ever. In this worn out, weary world you’re the one constant, the heart of who I am. You’re my shimmering star, the everlasting one whom I continue to follow. Even when darkness overtakes me, nobody, not one can change my mind. For you live within me, you’re the breath of my soul, the very reason I shine. I love you completely, and I will trust you with my life because you gave me yours.

For everyone here on WordPress, this is what you do to me whenever I read your lovely words. Thank you for always inspiring me and leaving me feeling comforted and loved. It’s this community that really brings me home.
Oh the feeling When I read such words The kind that touch my soul It’s pure bliss Orgasmic Mind-blowing Genius And I just want to shout out My unfeigned amazement From the rooftops Every time you write
It’s like a mother Who watches her child Take their first step Excitement and pride Respect and elation Gratitude and wonderment They all flood my chest Puffing it up With crisp memories Of bygone days The ones you leave me remembering The ones I want to hold on to Gripping tight to those nostalgic days Because I fear letting go
After all, I may never remember Those precious nuggets of time The ones that settle deep down In the hidden recesses Of my aging heart So I hold on Grasping ― white-knuckled Death gripping your words Because each lovely Beautiful Heartfelt word Each one of them Brings me home
