Belladonna

It was so wonderfully fun to write this story with shaziva’s spicy words chosen on Instagram @shaziva as part of an open call for words at http://instagram.com/theweaverofwords

…here’s my “story snippet” inspired by and written using shaziva’s wonderful 15 chosen words: belladonna, whisper, sangria, tangerine, spice, burgundy, downpour, cave, chandelier, secret, affair, sweater, dense, gold, shimmer

“Belladonna”

He called her Belladonna
‘beautiful woman’ in his native tongue
Belladonna
the name of the deadly nightshade
with burgundy flowers
and black berries
a lethal spice

b1

it reminded him
of their forbidden affair
he knew he couldn’t be with her
yet he knew he couldn’t bear to be apart

b2

he loved to whisper her name
amidst the dense springtime downpour
in a tangerine sweater
his voice heavy with passion
and the scent of sangria on his lips

b3

they would meet in secret
in a limestone cave
complete with a feather bed and a chandelier
he loved to watch the fire
of the golden candlelight
shimmering in her green eyes
so very intoxicating
so very deadly
