Writing Prompt #99 “Vernalagnia” March 22, 2015 – My Words


Vernalagnia is the romantic mood heralded by spring. Flowers in bloom, the opening of the chrysalis, reproduction cycles, sunshine and downpour, renewal

Write for me my love

For spring has sprung

The trees are flush with blossom

My heart beats longing for you

To feel your hand upon my breast

Your lips upon my brow.

Your words are always of love,

Of lustful desire and soft moon light

I love when you compare

My beauty to a morning sunrise

Or wax philosophical on matters of

Doting and youthful adoration.

I crave your touch

I lie awake recalling

The magic of being in your life

Now I am left with lasting memory

Even if my heart is broken.

But I resolve to step forward

You have taught me I can love

I want you and need you

My words are all I have.

  1. You nailed this prompt Michael! What season are you in now?

  2. Beautifully written Michael.

  3. That is beautiful (and sad) Michael.

  4. milliethom says:

    Absolutely lovely, Michael. Beautiful thoughts about a deep, romantic love, combined with great sadness at its loss.

  5. mandy smith says:

    Very sweet, with a touch of sadness, Michael. I think loss is more survivable in Spring.

    • That’s a very positive approach to take Mandy but its autumn here……maybe I have to wait until September??

      • mandy smith says:

        September is truly one of my favorite months (where I live anyway) since that’s the beginning of Fall. Yesterday was our first day of Spring. I hope you enjoy your autumn!

      • Its a beautiful morning, going to be hot later but right now it is just a treat to be outside enjoying the morning. Have a good one Mandy.

  6. C.C. says:

    Michael….this is so very moving!
