Sunday Scribblings #45 - Composed

(Photo by Daniel Southard)

Unable to steady her throbbing heart
Nor to stop the pulsating symphony in her ears,
Despite quivering fingers, and
A million larvae in her belly,
She took a chance.

RAW exposure.
Enamel flashed.
Self-confidence oozed from fingers and toes
and lips.

She remained composed.
Rocked the house.

"Brace yourself for a never-ending date with uncertainty"


  1. I would certainly feel like the begining but how wonderful to feel like the ending. You rocked the house!

  2. Nice post and picture. I am glad you came by my place earlier so that I could come and enjoy your writing.

  3. Interesting post. I liked the picture very much.

  4. Musical touch in the beginning lines and a great ending!
