Alphabe-Thursday: Alchemy in the Afternoon

Jenny Matlock

Ms. Jenny, "school marm" extrordinaire,  has been so kind as to host one more Alphabe-Thursday as a finale. This particular day is for those to post either their favorite letter (mine is HERE, as it represented a turning point in my alphabet posts) or to do a letter that they may have missed.

When I first heard about Ms. Jenny's meme I knew I wanted to participate but I had very little time to get an "A" post in before the deadline. I ended up quoting Dr. Seuss, I believe. So I am taking the make-up exam and re-doing the letter A. Additionally, since many of my posts came from a very dark place, I decided to end with a love poem.Without further Adieu, I present to you, Alphabe-Thursday: The Letter A

Alchemy in the Afternoon
requires a certain finesse:
Abiding Affection 
And reckless Abandon
that may lead to happiness. 

Amour on into night
will both Alarm and Amaze;
deep Adoration,
Acute Admiration,
Afire from love's scorching rays!

Oh, and the lovely Ms. Jenny is having a giveaway on her blog. Please click HERE to check it out. Good luck!

I had wondered what y'all were going to do after the Z post. This is great. Alchemy. I don't know that I've ever called it that. (If it's what I think it is.)
Good to have you back.
