Fire..... Ice

Warmth.... Cold

Light.... Dark

If our fingertips touched, would mine freeze? Or would yours melt?

Would your breath suck all the warmth from my bones? Or could mine ignite the tiny ember that is still ablaze in your heart?

Inhale...... I'll breathe on you.....

Exhale...... You breathe on me.....

I want to see.

wow, blue. these words are . . . haunting, in a way. is it odd for me to want to say that i hope you are okay?

Christianne said...

bluemountainmama said...

yes, dear girl... i am okay. :) just wanted to stray a little from my normal style of writing. another journal entry.

and yes, no more comment moderation for now. i haven't had any nasty coal troll comments for a while so i thought i'd give it a try.

Beautiful artistry of words Blue. Very deep. I like the picture to go with it.
I hope your time away was a time of refreshment.

Makes me stop and think and makes me want to touch far enough to reach.

bluemountainmama said...

i do want to reach far enough, colleen.... so i go forth trepidly.

You have such good taste in music. I'd like you to stock my IPOD (if I had one).

I posted the Scrabble poem using the letters we played in the comment section of Charlie's Angels. It was hard because it was such a weird game with so many two and three letter words packed on top of each other.

I love this one!!!!

Do you get a magazine called "The Sun?" Your writing reminds me a lot of the sort of thing I find in there. You should submit your work!

bluemountainmama said...

thanks, rebecca. i've never heard of that magazine... do they have a website?

Hi...I've seen you comment over at Christianne's and some others, and lurked here a bit...but these words make me want to say something. They're beautiful...haunting and beautiful. And I wanted you to know.

L.L. Barkat said...

Oh, yes.

bluemountainmama said...

thanks you, sarah.... and welcome. i always like it when 'lurkers' come out of the shadows and into the light. :)

Sometimes fewer words say best what we mean. Your words were like that, simple and powerful.

the words are haunting, blue. seems as though they should be whispered, and in the dark.

and the photograph ... brilliant. absolutely brilliant.
