A rising action that leaves one breathless

creating a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.


Isn’t it all about the foreplay that it takes to get there?

the shaping and forming before a slab of clay becomes a pot

the growth of a baby inside the womb before being held in its mother’s arms

the sore fingers when learning to play a guitar, anticipating a melody

the planting of a seed in moist fertile soil to produce a crop

the ingredients tossed and stirred creating a delicious supper meal

the touch of a hand upon another’s body bringing sounds of pleasure

the words written upon a page bringing thought and clarity

a sigh in a quiet room while fingers find the letters to type

Without foreplay, climax wouldn’t be the same.
