Darling Dance With Me

A life long pursuit and the results. Doctorates and experience sometimes do not mean much. Just listening is my expertise.

Who Holds Who?

Who would be the king?

Who would be the king?

Be Well My Love

There the old man was in his palatial yard. Putting his worn face to the sun. No great news of riches or health for the week. No great accomplishment. No new child born or new love was found. And yet the day was new, though waning in the winter sun and clouds. He had not survived another day and night before for no reason. Yet that reason was far beyond his understanding of reason.

Perhaps it was her gentle touch from one back of the hand to the other? Perhaps it was her wonderful morning breath caught in a single instant. Doubtful that it was the morning dew that he drank from from a cup for that reason for that was his normal habit.

He had sat for an hour before bed with his son studying the celestial with a moon to die for and yet that seemed no reason for the warmth of a summer day on a barren winter one.

In some moments he walked, nay, paced his office floor in search of reason for being elevated above himself. And then he went back to that breath and that ever so insignificant breath and so what was true. New love is a daily deal.

O’ my desire, I fell down hard today

Just my horse playing games on a sunny day

I would rather that I present clean and dry

But I am afraid that that bird has left the sky

Together we know that excursions are hard

And we know that sometimes I have no regard

Why do you boss me around as you do?

Is it because I am danger to you?

No darling just as I thought

A danger to you is my heart not made for your lot

If you be as a strawberry or a pearl of mine

I will endeavor forever to ride that fine line

You are gone for just mere moments and, and and!

I try but cannot come to a safe and secure land.

Please my love stay more close to me

Do of what you will to be you and me be me

Tough When You Have A Precious Treasure

Thank you much Dianna and I apologize for not responding earlier. It is so rewarding to keep it fresh.

Dianna Mendez on March 19, 2018:

Sweet poem. I do believe looking at love as new each morning keeps it blooming.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Manatita it certainly is with all of my children. We love a dance party.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Frank that whole love thing seems to be more than me. I am not saying where it comes from.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Manatita it is always nice to hear from you. If I do not dance each day well then....

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Thank you Dora. We surely must embrace each day with new love in our heart. (love your Carib Tales)

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Thanks Denise. And the same to you. You are so right about our priorities shifting.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Bill I had some similar tech problems. But all resolved.Thank you for that nice compliment, I will keep it in mind when I get too out there.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 14, 2018:

Thank you all for your thoughtful comments. I took a little hiatus there so I am so grateful to have so many great friends.

William Kovacic from Pleasant Gap, PA on March 14, 2018:

For some reason, I couldn't comment on any articles for the past couple of weeks, but it looks like we're good to go now. You have a way of making the deep things of life seem simple, and I love it, my friend!

manatita44 from london on March 13, 2018:

Chaming poetry or song. Great for the dance, yes. Is it with the kid? Nice!

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on March 06, 2018:

I noticed in almost all your hubs, you carry love high.. and higher when it needs to be.. that itself is amazing Eric.. bless you

manatita44 from london on March 05, 2018:

Fine piece of writing followed by a lovely poem. Nice!

You must be in love with a beautiful woman... let's dance, eh. Life is short. Ha ha.

DDE on March 05, 2018:

Sometimes love is all we need. Great thoughts here.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on March 04, 2018:

Sweet sentiments in your love poem. Your prose sentence is good too: "New love is a daily deal."

Denise W Anderson from Bismarck, North Dakota on March 02, 2018:

That was beautiful! It seems that the closer we get to our own mortality, the closer we are to those things of the spirit that bring us the most joy and happiness. May you have many more days ahead of you!

Lori Colbo from United States on March 02, 2018:

Well well. Eric I have never seen any poetry from you. This was beautiful. I hope you share more in the future. The first two lines caught my attention right off the bat. Nicely done.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 02, 2018:

It pleases me that it pleased you my friend Clive. Not my area to publish but we grow by hours.

Clive Williams from Jamaica on March 02, 2018:

Well written...good poetry

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 02, 2018:

Thank you my my Venkatachari. I was just pulling the Mallow from my garden. Not too much as it is good for us, but enough that it works with us.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on March 02, 2018:

Lovely thoughts, Eric. Your captions "who holds who" or "Who would the king" are awesome. The true feelings of love inexplicable in words!

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 02, 2018:

What eludes you my friend?

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on March 02, 2018:

A very catching presentation in verse, Eric, that completely escaped me could you fill in what it is I'm missing?

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 02, 2018:

So wonderful Mary. My wife can do about 2 hours a day with me, hihihi. And she likes to "scoot" me away. "Go read". The mere within the home proximity is well enough. "passion does not mean interference" .

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on March 02, 2018:

When we love someone we want them to be with us all the time and to be one with us. Sometimes, we have to let go and let be, some space to breathe. My husband and I are enough company to one another but sometimes, one just needs to be.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 01, 2018:

Linda my good friend the love poem I sent to her this morning could not be published. The whisper in her as I look forward to in the morning will just not be written except in my pad.

The truest nature of love must be hidden.

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on March 01, 2018:

Eric, if there is Heaven on earth you have discovered it. Not in gold or silver, but in the wealth of love. Your family is a joy to all of us as you share your insights and innermost feelings with all of us.

Thank you.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 01, 2018:

Nikki there is a fine saying in a sleepy little village I come from. "I don't get nothing, I just got it". "Love is my only coin". Thank you for coming by and stopping for a moment to chat.

Nikki Khan from London on March 01, 2018:

Wow,, what a love Eric,, love this little cute kid.God bless you and him always :)
