Kindle and Quench

Your touch plugs me in,
Lights my body from within,
Fills my veins with liquid light 
Till my dormant heart ignites
To be moulded like blown glass -
An urn to hold this cooling ash.

    I see you won one of Debbie's contests with this one. I can see's Electric! and cold too. It's talent to be able to capture someone with only a few lines. To your question...It' been a long time ago that I was in Nova Scotia. It was a family trip when I was young. We went to a national park. I think it was Highland Nat. Park...does that sound right? Anyway, it was beautiful and I saw a moose for the first and only time since!
