A 100 word poem (sorta poem). Not part of my daily writing project, although I could cheat and say it was... but then it wouldn't be fair to anyone, especially me. This is a challenge prompt that my mentor +Linda Maree Malcolm sent me, and I felt that doing it in this manner would convey the feelings that the prompt gave me.
I actually feel a little conflicted in sharing this. As this reveals a little bit too much of me, which is something we all try to achieve in our writing. I just feel it reveals the weaker side of me. Something I tend to veer away from at times.
Well... Challenge prompt done. I hope it meets up to my writing mentor's demands.
I have a weird fascination with Lotus flowers, this is the second Lotus flower pic I've used on this blog.

Pink petals blooming, parting in invitation.
Morning-dew glistening in day’s light,
Aglow in pleasure and anticipation.
Warm air suffused with her essence.
She whispers across the lake.
Through morning fog.
Through morning chill.
A maiden-moan of perennial longing,
Look at me! (I am!)
Love me! (I do!)
I lose myself to her beauty.
I lose myself to her scent.
Craven hands reaching out,
Daring to touch this innocence.
To keep it for myself.
To help me forget.
I stand frozen on the shore.
Unwilling to depart to her comfort.
Loving her from afar.
Loving her the only way I know.
