A Line at a Time #alaat 12 - THE RESULTS!

There's a lady in a field, her silhouette dances with the single rose. . . waiting. . . Framed by orb's opalescent light - a beacon to the seeker Standing alone....the moonlight engulfs her...as she waits The lilies stand tall as she twirls and side steps… pausing… Old man, in the moon, your shiny, bald pate backlights Mother Earth’s beauty But below velvet petals a thorn can pierce Endless, searching, the night creeps in with a soft touch She stands, bathed in the shrouding twilight, waiting for him to arrive She has never felt so empty…so hungry The contributors: There's a lady in a field, her silhouette dances with the single rose. . . waiting. . .

I HAVE to comment on this one. . . and by all means, I'm not saying the other #alaat's weren't good or anything, but this one is hands down my favorite!

If you read this, you cannot believe that these lines were written and sent without anyone else (but me) knowing them until now. . . and this is why I love this program.

Thanks to the contributors!
