Can A True Love Return?

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Her heart skipped a beat as the evening news said their good-byes. Motionless she lye in a tomb of boundless covers and her eyes stared deep into the darkness. From within something sparked a light, “Could it really be?”

Without sight her waning memories began to flood her vision. A smile crept upon her face but was hidden by the shadows of night. How long had it been, did our absence change us, on and on questions of what once was crossed her lips, always ending with “Could it really be?”

The chill of the night penetrated the shroud of covers and without warning a shiver. “Oh please say it is so,” came the plea for truth. The silent thoughts of bondage that had been evoked, of a distance each had imposed and then the question came again, “Could it really be?”

Can it be that my true love will find their way out of the darkness? Can once more no distance separate us? Her heart pulsed with the thought of this returning love, so much so, sleep eluded her.

The morning came: the newsmen held fast to their evening report and with the sun came a smile to be seen by all. Her long lost love would make their triumph return.

Her bondage would be unbound, the distance would be span and together they soon would be and her true love?

If you follow me at all you know of what I speak. You know of what true love makes my heart skip a beat and yes thanks to the local weatherman is returning.

My Flip Flops. By this weekend I should be able to shed the bondage of wool socks and set these puppies free. Why, right now my little piggy's are wiggling a happy dance and singing, “Wee, wee, wee.”

Before I go though, I have a cause to pass on. Rachel Harrie over at Rachel Writes has started a new blog for Japan. Write Hope is the new site please click over and join what she is doing.

Talli Roland has information on Authors for Japan. Both worthy of a look see.

So I leave you this wonderful hump day dreaming of shedding my wool socks and dusting off my flip flops.




I need some new ones, mine are worn out! :-)

Ahhh, spring when our thoughts turn to love. I'll be happy for flipflops and sandals, but as always, reluctant to show my winter white legs for a time :(

Messing with my ahead again, shame on you.
I'm still seeing a cold rain outside the widow but our guys say tomorrow will be "almost sixty." What exactly is "almost sixty/"

Ah, tricked again! Thought I was reading some steamy romance. What was it--a vampire story? A historcial romance? Flip flops. Jules, you are so funny.

Lucky you, Jules! I want some of what you have. It's going to be a long time before my flip flops are resurrected!
Good job passing aid Japan info along. Rach does great work. I'll have to look at the authors.

Aww, I didn't see that ending coming, how clever :)

My co-teacher never lets me live down the fact that my favorite pair of flip flops are a pair of NC Tarheels...and I'm a Wolfpack fan, lol!

I'll come back tomorrow and follow the links about Japan.

Friday, it's supposed to be near 80 here!

I didn't guess it was going to be flip flops! I prefer bare feet myself -- when I can get away with it :)
