Can you imagine?  Just picture the scene.....Sitting relaxing on  far away beach......looking through my friends FB pictures way of keeping up......

Then suddenly a face... a blast from the the background of a picture.....

This little scribbling is the result..... I hope it resonates with you....

Willow the Wisp. 



Sitting,  flicking through FB, my way of keeping in touch with family and friends from afar. I clicked like, I commented.  Suddenly like a blast from the past a face appeared: my heart skipped a beat and a tear, unbidden trickled down my face. The outlines were blurred but still …. I felt that familiar stirring from within and I started to shake from the tips of my fingers to my toes.

My thoughts turned to him. The only person who had the power to make my bones turn to jelly.

I suppose the unexpected encounter…just a picture … my guard had dropped or just perhaps my need for someone. If I allowed my thoughts and myself to turn to him . I then had to attempt to find some modicum of common ground in the relationship aside from raw physical sex.

Was that possible?

He was like Willow the Wisp invading my very being, catching me unawares.

My first love and my last. “A bit dramatic” I hear myself saying.
