Weekend Writing Prompt #220 – Oasis | Sammi Cox (

Mornings find comfort here
In the coolness of this paradise,
A silken oasis found
Where thirst and hunger
Find satiety 
Yet thirst and hunger
Still into the desire
Of evenings
Filled with evermore 
Longing for fire
Comforting and raging

I am a retired teacher, enjoying everything that retirement means. In addition, I have been active in the LGBTQ community since I was four years old and marched my Ken doll with all his little Ken accouterments to the big metal trash can in the yard. Yes, I dumped Ken, along with said accouterments, into the can and slammed the lid on. My two Barbie dolls lived happily ever after.
