Prosery: Between Heartbeats

HAIR OF GOLD
About two years have passed between visits. I have grown accustomed to intervals of kindness, funny jokes which makes for laughter long and hearty ha ha ha-s. Longer still i have known him, hair a bronze kind of gold. In those days, for school children, hair colouring was unheard of, so yes that was his natural colour. But that was years ago.

We thought we had fallen in love, until we both married our destined spouses. We kept in touch by letter and card. That was the connecting way in those days. Until waning interest, put a comma there. Then the connections started again. This time there were visits since he had migrated. But always intervals of kindness and laughter.

So when in 2020 he declares. There is no God, i am caught off guard, i freeze. Indeed, there are moments caught between heart-beats.

NOTE: Today Kim is prompting at Dverse, she ask that we write a bit of prose not more than 144 words including the line "There are moments caught between heart-beats" taken from the poem Coda by Louis MacNeice

  7. I would love to learn to crochet more than the most basic stitch. My mom was an expert but when she was alive I didn't ask for her to teach me. - Margy
