#WednesdayFreeWrite – WONDERFUL YOU

WONDERFUL YOU

I think you’re wonderful

like peanut butter out of the jar
late at night when nothing else will do

like quiet mornings
that smell of coffee and sex

like old Levis
soft and supple
with frayed ends and thin knees

like head-tossed-back
feel-it-in-your-belly laughter

like Miles Davis and unfinished crossword puzzles
on a rainy Sunday afternoon

like the first green of spring
pushed through the snow

like words and rhythm and love
together in that perfect uh-huh

like the still of the sea
before it crashes the beach

like the magic of a bhangra beat
that gives the hips a
life of their own

like a deep cleansing breath
in the middle of the forest

like a warm kiss on the throat
that heats the blood and
goosebumps the skin

like tulips picked from the street market bin
on a random walk home
just because

like boxes of Paper Mate flair tip pens
ready to write the next great love story

like you
like me
like us

I think you’re wonderful
wonderful you


My #WednesdayFreeWrite series is based on what I write during the 10 minutes allotted my writing group’s Wednesday Prompt. As always, these pieces are works of fiction, erupting from my incredibly over-active imagination. They are unedited and unscripted, super loose and probably my favorite ten minutes of the week. They are perfect in their imperfections and I hope you enjoy.
