"Ships in the Night II" 6/10/04 prompt with poem response from Candle Maker
Left by destinydances

His essence

a warm, cool breeze
cleansing my soul

My cares

strewn
on the jagged winds of yesterday

He was

a taste of wine
from a vibrant, mellow glass


Alas

He disappeared like a dream to opening eyes

leaving a smudge on my newly rejuvenated soul
**********************************************
Returned by Candlemaker

Her face

Gone
on the heartless winds of change

She has

Spilled the wine
My sweet and mellow dream

But now

No care can challenge her return
To the hopeful horizon of my soul

Her essence

Never a smudge on my heart

A cleansing, purifying breeze
