out of nowhere

So Lizzy Danger showed up last night, with her new groove on, demanding a line. Happy to oblige, I suggested to her: "We can just walk around all day." Here is Lizzy's poem. Glad you are back, Mizz Lizz! She gave me the line, "Her red cheeks made me remember." And you know where I went with that. Enjoy!
out of nowhere
she came into view
breathless
flushed
running

i said hello
you okay?
running late she said

nice to see you

flash of memory
her face above me
her hands inside me
breathless
flushed

nice to see you

out of nowhere
running
her red cheeks
made me remember.

  4. I'd love to offer up a prompt and see flowers bloom from it - the only problem is participation. (I've tried it before)
