Still

Gold curlsIt wasn’t the first time, but it still takes me unawares, distracting me at the oddest moments. A flash of gold, a glimpse of skin. The line of your chin in profile. Another stranger, reminding me of you.

    Thanks for linking up this weekend. I love how you’ve captured something that many of us have felt. That, “wait, is that him” moment. Beautiful. Hope to see you back soon.

    This is excellent. I especially love the word-bump proximity of “a glimpse of skin. The line of your chin.”
    And congrats on your well-deserved win for last week’s gorgeous piece! 🙂
