Love Memoirs. #whatdoyousee

The shades of Santa Helena!
Do you still remember those quiet halls,
Isles in which your hand met mine and our fingers intertwined…
Do you ever dream of those secret rooms,
Insatiable limbs and kisses that still echo in the corridors of time…
If ever you fleet to those shadows of sunrise, where two once walked as one,
Then there you will find me.

Ahh Santa Helena!
What love you woke!
What blissful hope!
What blind mistakes!

Shall I call our love a blessed sin?
For how can I regret those twilit moans and morning joys?
Why should I ever forget you-
When beneath those arches, my soul still lingers
Waiting for your return.

      Thank you so K. I actually meant it to be sweet but I was pulled slightly off that path.

        Planner vs pantser. I love planning but nothing better than leaving room for the muse to stretch out and breathe some magic into the work.

      Haha, thank you Robbie. I’m doing final touches on the Ms for the few Beta readers so I have some time to get my blog running normally again. I’ll have a better schedule when I begin work on the next book.

        You’re welcome! There’s a new glitch where when I press reply, the comment remains as it is, not sent. Perhaps that happened. I have your link in the round up post long time ago

    This very much reminds me of my visit to Pompeii, Italy.
    So much history, all lost in such a short time because of the volcano!

    I was also watching a sort of exploration show – at an abandoned fort where the explorers were trying to ‘see’ the ghosts that may still linger!

    You do have a way with words my friend. Continued success and health to you! Cheers, Jules
