Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~ William Wordsworth
Oh my goodness, I really enjoyed this! I read it 3 or 4 times in my head and then read it out loud. The words are just so lovely together. Everything fits, you know?Yes it's kind of a vague compliment, but I don't know how else to explain it. :-)Excellent job!
You made my day and my week by such kind words.Thank you Dawn. Thank you so much for all this appreciation.
A bittersweet ending.
Wise words.Thank you
that dance never seems to end too well for the moth but they are always drawn to each other :-)
I second that :)Thank you Steven
Well, they went out with reckless abandon, at least! Great moral to the story. Are we all drawn to the flame at one time or another?
I do believe we all get drawn to flames at times.Thank you for sharing your views.
Very nice, I liked it, especially the last line -- To share their final kiss!
Thank you Tessa.
I love that final image of the moth kissing the fire, and of the two being lovers in a single dance.
Thank you Jessie. I am glad the imagery worked.
We are all similarly drawn, aren't we? This sent beautiful imagery through my mind. Bittersweet and felt romantic. Too bad they only had the opportunity to share one kiss. But so it goes.
They get just one chance and they live it up truly, don't they?Thank you Gina.
A perfect ending to this fable
Thank you so much.
Oh wow! Fantastic Ruby. Just wonderful!
