The sunset washed over us as though the rays were liquid gold, intwining our slightly browned skin into one solid, substantial aura.

He was the one! I felt a warm nibble on my chilled ear. A woman moved toward us.

“Who’s that?”

“My wife.”

    Hi Gypsie. You liked to my word list prompt last Monday but your link only led to a title page and no poem. No matter where I clicked, nothing more appeared, so i had to remove the link and I didn’t know how to let you know the link was not working.
