I Love Me Some Beautiful Words

I stumbled across a poem by Denis McMahon the other day. The words in it really moved me.

“my sugargirl angel
dances on the beach in winter

hiking her skirt
at the air she whispers

take me you beautiful paddlepop
before the moon melts”

I love the image and mood it evokes. It's whispering a story to me. Somehow I'm seeing a character that will make an appearance in my writing. I'm almost certain of that.

Don't you love when that happens?
