A promised scent.

Conditions are perfect.

The sky a deep navy blue

littered with stars.

The light from a half moon

glowing delicately.

No clouds to offer insulation

as the wet ground from the days

earlier attempts begins to freeze.

The air is cold, crisp, refreshing

to my soul,

and is scented with the soft promise

of snow.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!
