This is a prompting Blog

My intent here is to write a poem from the prompt I give to you , the reader, in hopes that it will inspire something and get others to write with me.

One Shot Wednesday – Week 37


I met you
and my world became
Did you know that when you took my hand
you were pulling me into your life?
I started to see myself
my world
in a whole new light
interlacing your life with mine
into a knot I never want to untie
Things began to matter to me again  
Yes the rains came
but they nourished
rather than devoured 
rather than stained
Things are very different
since you have touched me
I've fallen in love with you
in step with you
walking into the gentle light of our days together
When I sleep, you are always there
your hand in mine
through the lengthening shadows of time
When I wake
the warmth of you surrounds me
so simple
so familiar
so forever
in so many ways
As our love unfolds
it flowers into a life of wonder
We walk upon the stones we have placed
in the garden of our hearts
where our lifetime of love is forever set
Thank you for reaching out to me
My life is better because of the love you've given
You've touched my soul
and raised my spirits
You waited to see if I would fall
and fallen I have
I've fallen for you
When you took my hand
you pulled me into your life
and my world became



  1. Like the way you combine sleep with shadows and passing time... "through the lengthening shadows of time" Sentimental write with emotion. Nice one shot!

  2. Wow, what a write. We walk upon the stones we have placed in the garden of our heart. What beauty. I never get enough of your writing. You amaze me. Susie

  4. WOW! Beautiful description of a beautiful relationship.

  5. Good write. What exactly is the "prompt"? Is it the picture, or is it what feelings your work births in your readers?

    I'd participate, but you didn't make it clear what the prompt was.

  6. Wonderful JL!

  7. This is so romantic. If it were set to music, every "first dance" at wedding receptions would be danced to these words.

  8. Wonderful and yes when love takes hold, it brings you into its life... I enjoyed it so much.
    Thanks for sharing..
