Such a story

Scintillating –

The intrigue, the suspense

Riveting words that spellbound


Then the climax

Bittersweet ending

Still savouring the words

Of that pivotal chapter


A book we can’t put down.


The winter too long

Branches too bare

Shadows too solemn

The air too bleak


And then you hovered

A promising blush

Soft and beguiling

Melting the snow


You warmed my heart

Quickened my pulse

Exhaled my breath

Clouded my judgement


I have fallen for you!
