Here are some of the favorite lines chosen by readers of “Oh, Where is My Candle Hat?”
Tunnel eats daylight|
Piñata of kisses |
Door knob clicks breath hides |
I love when he is in paint mode |
Lips pucker tremble |
Eyes look past now |
Iron fire escapes scrape sky |
Island girl lost in concrete jungle|
Hair twisted on pink rollers |
Long lashes peel upward slowly |
Unknown handrails |
Favorite lines from "Alterations | Thread Light Through Eye of Storm"
dark chocolate-brown alligator shoes strap buckled on top
Her eyes blades against my back.
He appeared inside a blink.
Too cool to sweat.
Heart on lock down
Fold sharp edge of lightening
Daily dose of right and wrong
We chisel conversations.
Shoes take flight.
