gives its scent

now broken
this plum branch remains

  1. Actually, I prefer yours: it has the depth of allowing things to fade, lose their beauty but wabi-like, still manage to retain beauty. The memory doesn’t fade even if the petals and leaves do. I don’t see any of that in the original.

    BTW, any chance of a reader switching that confusing snow off?

    • I guess that although I was a “flower Child” when writing I much prefer subtle when it comes to erotica … and I do so agree, she’s the best. I’ll have to look into Jennifer Nu.


    • Thanks dearest Jules … I find that I visit a lot less than I used to and write a lot less too. But I miss our ‘net’ time as well and hope to get my act together soon. Thanks for dropping by. Hugs

      • We can only do what we are able.
        Never a rush – BeeBee isn’t going anywhere. I try to write them as stand-alones. The link has them all – the newest snippets are on the top of the list. To be read for enjoyment – never a chore.

        Some days I write more others less. But I try to write something everyday. Writing for yourself doesn’t mean that you have to post. Enjoy your creativity!
