Prompt for SoCS July 5/14 – Arria

This week’s prompt word is “body.”

It was a body like no other. I was mesmerised, captivated, frozen in time almost.

I looked at you and thought is that really you?

I was fooled to believe you were not as I imagined at all.

Legs that went all the way to your bum and

I knew would carry you with an elegance I could only describe.

I have admired your arms, their strength is obvious to me, they will carry you safely thought life. I can see you will fend off all aggressors, all detractors. You will be ok.

The force of your voice tends to lead me to the conclusion you will be one who stands up for what you believe, you will make your intentions known to all and sundry around you.

The one thing that has stunned me most is your eyes.

From the moment of our meeting you fixed me with your gaze, you held me enthralled, I was drawn in I knew you were going to be a person of quality, a person of substance a person who will know her destiny and make every effort to achieve in ways I will be enchanted by.

Yes my newest darling grand daughter, I see you as growing into a woman of determination and courage.

I will watch as your tiny body grows into a woman we will all be so proud of.

    I’m glad her legs go all the way to her ‘bum,’ it would be extremely difficult to get around if they didn’t 😀 Seriously though, Michael, I can see this little one wrapping you around her little finger.
    LOL I’m still two ahead of you in the grandchildren stakes 😉

    Beautifully written, Michael and congratulations. Although I follow, I actually came specifically to this post through the prompt in Linda’s post as I flurry around trying to catch up on all I have missed out on.
