Moon Dust

Moon dust lingered
on your lips and
when they met mine,
that grainy sweetness
sent jolts through me.

  1. Fantastic image of the moondust on his lips….wow! One thing….I’d reconsider the last line. For me, “sent jolts through me” is jarring. It doesn’t fit with the lightly magical images in the rest. Love “grainy sweetness” though.

    • The jolts are like the exhilaration of the first kiss. Sometimes also, when consuming something incredibly sweet, people may experience a strong sensation in the jaw. Either interpretation was what I was aiming for. 😊 Thank you for the suggestion.


  2. I said I’d pop by in the New Year and wish you well and good fortune in these potentially turbulent times…..and what do I find? Dark romantic prose…it is good to see such imagery drifts from your words. Nicely done Sarah 😊
