A to Z Challenge – F is for First Touch

A2Z-BADGE [2015] - Life is Good






Have you ever found THE one?



First Touch


I remember that first touch

tentative, tender

the shy glance

the awkward smile.

For with that touch

a hidden spring

welled up within me,

found its way to the sunlight.

Deep green waters of passion

locked away for so long

behind grey walls of denial

could no longer be contained.

The waters surged

became a flood

that swept away

all doubts and fears

crashed through convention

even through reason

and we were united in a love

I never thought to experience.

  2. Lovely poem, just dropping by from the A to Z and letting you know I’ve given your blog a shout out from my own post today https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/

  3. Hi there – I liked “the shy glance; the awkward smile”. Reminds me of times way, way past. 🙂

    • Thanks Diane. Funny thing – I wrote the poem in response to a prompt, but the emotions were there ready to pour out, it seems. Reminders of younger days indeed. Thank you for commenting. 🙂
