"


there....


                it still can

                be seen in a heart


                two initials

                carved carefully

                into the bark


                fourteen years

                two months

                nine days ago

                come midnight


                her young slender

                fingers guided him

                there....


                into

                his first glimpse

                of heaven.



                Richard W. Jenkins

Reading your words had me right "there" as I read this sweetly sensual little piece of heaven.

I loved everything about it, the descriptive words you've chosen, the easy to read layout and that gorgeous picture makes this an exquisite piece of artistry. Well done Richard!

Blessings, 🙏

Gosh, Karen,
From You, this means so much … I'm blushing! ; )
"fourteen years
two months
nine days ago
come midnight"

Best lines. To know the time passed to such a degree fully explains its importance to the writer. All else is description. I liked this - compact and complete.
