I Wax Poetic

Every Thursday Cryselle's Craziness hosts Thousand Word Thursdays, posting a picture designed to inspire a story between one hundred and one thousand words. Submissions are posted, along with the author's latest news. Though I tried to rein in the impulse and give someone else a chance since I just posted a story on one of those pictures a few weeks ago, that lovely photo of two young men and a football inspired thoughts of friends becoming lovers, bringing out my inner poet.

Here's the link to the poem, First We Were Friends, over at Cryselle's Craziness.


  1. Thanks. In my teens I wrote a lot of poetry, mostly free verse, but those words stuck in my head the moment I saw those two guys. I could clearly picture whole scene: two buds, a little one on one, eyes meeting, and wham! Friends to lovers.
