I recall when passion ruled
when self-control was self-unschooled,
when fires burned and passion bubbled
with doubtful heed and certain trouble;
we threw ourselves into the fire
emerged unscathed, so turned it higher.
now we smile, remembering
when passion was the only thing.

I haven’t posted anything to Real Toads for a few days, recovering from a visit with husband and dog to the west coast to visit family and friends, then to the BC interior to celebrate my long-ago high school graduation. Now we're home, perhaps to stay a while.
