    This is just so profound and poignant. So many questions asked but it’s also possible to decide on your answer. Very deserving of the top pick this week.

    Not to make this about me, but I’ve been struggling to create a complete story in 750 words lately. And I read this and saw an entire universe in such a short space. I’ve read it several times and am still discovering moments and possibilities.

      … Wow. This is an amazing compliment. I’m a little overwhelmed. 🙂 Thank you so much. I hope you keep writing! Do you hang out at YeahWrite? Forgive me – I don’t recognize your blog name off the top of my head! If you don’t, swing by and say hello. It’s a great place to get some practice. (Also, OMG I was the BIGGEST Trixie Beldon fan when I was a kid!)

        I clearly don’t check my messages well. I started a blog for book reviews and couldn’t figure out how to get my name to show up. And since it was the parent for my fiction blog, it was super confusing. Luckily, my cousin helped me with that this week! I’ve been on YeahWrite off and on since May and it’s been so great!

    I love the progression from a candle, to a hearth fire, to a beacon. It’s like the narrator is self-correcting as they bring their beloved into clearer focus in their mind’s eye. Your word choices are simply exquisite.

    I’m glad I wrote and published my micro before reading this. Otherwise, having been reminded of your beautiful, evocative way with words, I would have chucked the whole thing.

    First of all, I love the sensuousness of this,
    Secondly, I must be hungry because I accidentally read “beacon” as “bacon,” which took my thoughts in a totally different direction…

    Oh what a brilliant use of transferred imagery! The sensuous nature of the scene is not lost on the reader and yet, the protagonist is the one who speaks not the one featured. Oh, LOVE this.

      I’ve missed yours, and Trifecta too! YeahWrite’s micro challenge is my attempt to channel the spirit of the old Trifextra prompts. 🙂 (Psst – there’s still time to add a micro. I’d love to see you here!)
