lying on the floor finished, shattered by the fall hands limp from fatigue the fractured face of Venus aligned with her Mars again

Thanks, it turned out better than I expected when I started! The stars and planets aligned! 💫
This was such a fun collab, Tricia; thank you❣️
P.S. Feel better soon❣️
Thanks, this made me smile tonight! ❤️💫🤩
Well written, Tricia! And a fabulous collab!
Thanks! I really loved reading David’s response, so much fun to see where he takes it! 💫
Truly my pleasure 😊
Always a pleasure 😊
Feel better soon. We virused from my daughter this winter break. ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a person not coughing, not even the feverish mouse. Be well soon, friend. 💜
It’s been like that for so many! My twin sister’s family tested positive for Covid plus Strep A within a week! Hopefully we can all be better by New Years Eve! 🙏
Indeed. Or drunk and unable to feel any of it. 🤣 Okay, not the little ones. Anyways, here’s to rest. One book finished, and I’ve been avoiding any real responsibility for days. Life is truly good. I think we should all get the last few days of the year off, don’t you?
Yeah, totally agree! We all need time to read more books and write a few more poems! 💯
Cheers to that. Its the best gift, time.
Wow! What a fabulous collab and what a beautiful piece by you, Tricia!!! I love the eyes line and the ending is just MAGIC!!! Your writing just gets better and better, really well done 🤍🤗🙌🏻
Thanks! I was up in the night, half dreaming and fully sneezing, and I think it helped with the creative process! 🤩 Glad you didn’t think the eyes line was over-the-top too much, I have a tendency to walk that line, occasionally! 🥰💫
Haha, creativity comes in the strangest ways sometimes!! Omg no, it was perfect and the detail was impeccably done. Walking that line is what makes your poetry so special 👌🏻🙌🏻🤗
Thanks so much! Finally got an antibiotic this morning so I’ll probably be sleeping more soon. Poetry has been therapeutic though! 🥰
So sorry you’ve been so sick Tricia but it did bring out the best in poetry in you.. Love the piece creatively done! 💗
Thanks, Cindy! I finally got some antibiotics and I think I’m on the mend now! 🥰💝
Oh thank goodness!!!
You’re so welcome!
