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

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

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

        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!

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

        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!

        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.

        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.

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

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

        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" .

        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.

        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.

        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.

        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.
