First words

Standard

In the beginning,
woman was the sun, needing
no fuel but her own

This prompt suggested that I start writing using the first line of my favourite novel. I’m not really one for quoting, but I’ve always been inspired by the words of Hiratsuka Raicho.

I’m beautiful

Standard

I’m beautiful,
evocative half-smile,
exotic intentions.

Take me home
and put me on your wall.
I’ll let you stare and stare.
