Wonderful Sensations

Updated on May 24, 2016

Tender Love

Over a decade has passed

The lovely feelings keep rising

When you think it isn't possible

It really is

The glow of a night light

The warmth of a blazing sun

The chill of an ice cube down your back

A wonderful passion followed by a quiet comfort

Enjoying the softness

Relaxed and mellow

A gentle peace

Looking for the right words to describe

Every feeling that makes us complete

Left so satisfied and sleepy

      Gypsy Rose Lee I agree there are so many ways to enjoy those incredible feelings. I love walking especially on a windy or rainy day. Mother Nature right against my skin.I had trouble trying to comment since my hub went to letter pile a new section of hibpages. I had to sign in all over again. Thank you for all your support and friendship.

      And I might add the smell of fresh mowed grass, lying back and watching the clouds drift by and feeling the soft, gentle summer breeze. The ice cube down the back made me smile.

      Shanmarie Love is so powerful but at the same time so volatile like dynamite. It can do amazing things but if not careful the greatest love can turn. Boom!!!! Little things make the difference. As long as you respect each other and nurture the love to make it grow. People fall out of love for many different reasons. Some I will never understand. Thank you for reading and sharing. May your love always grow and grow to bring you all the happiness you desire.

      Nellieanna Once again you sparked my passion.I have suffered mental losses of pictures and items from my childhood got ruined by accident. I thought they were safe they got damp and musty. My cellar is not a dry cellar and paper doesn't hold up well even in Rubbermaid containers they weren't sealed tight enough. Nice to look back but better to go forward. I was careless and busy doing other things. Have a great day and special times are just ahead. Thank you for reading and commenting brightening my day.

      You practice sensible health habits, especially the good attitudes, so you're probably good for a long time. I admire the way you handle life's ups and downs, with an overall view of its beauty aud its good! It's in each real moment that we have life, so how we use each moment is the main thing and that becomes what our lives ARE - not how long they last, nor is it in how 'same' they all are. Some are easier, some are more challenging. Thank goodness for that! You may have had tousled hair and some changes in what your body will do, but there you went, - out the door to tend to the yard - and at the same time, tending to YOU and your own well-being. The positive response is the saving grace! Haven’t you seen people who were really invalids, but just radiated the life in themselves? By contrast, one sees people who almost revel in their gloom and misfortune. It’s a choice, at every age and stage!

      I'm 84 (and then some), you know, and hoping to go for 100 or more, still being healthy, which is largely from my own choices. I make sure the real life in the present is as healthy and rich as it can be, with the exciting living it contains. Sure, I'm not as agile as I have been in the past, but I can and do live NOW, dwelling neither in the past nor the future, which do no exist. So I treasure the present, and what I can make of it, even during any of its less-great experiences. I need those to keep my perspective in balance and to appreciate the great ones.

      The value of being able to feel, sense and experience ALL of it IS life. A static, never changing, never being both sides of the coin would be boring and numbing. Soon one would lose interest in it. We need the contrasts so we can appreciate and really feel both. Here's a poem I wrote about it:

      Desensitize me not.

      I want to feel it all.

      Joyous bliss,

      Anguished pain -

      For LIFE is ALL of this.

      Fulfillment, disappointment,

      The tides and ebbs of being.

      The days, the nights,

      The spring, the fall,

      Shades and lights of seeing.

      I'm cheated not

      By living life,

      Prevent it not,

      It's giving life

      And I am here to live it.

      Nellieanna I wake up and look in the mirror and my hair goes every which way. Then I walk and my trick knee pulls a fast one I slowly catch my balance not to fall. I haven't even had breakfast and my day has already has given me little surprises. I know my body is slowly aging because I have more trouble doing what I use to do. So I look at the world in a soft light that is easy on the eyes. Pulling out the beauty and letting the rest disappear like sand on a windy day. Oh well . Where things go who really knows. What I can say is thank you for this moment and right now I feel so so good. Thank you for reading and sharing a wonderful peace of heaven on earth. Out in the yard to plant and tinker.

      I am so glad for you and your wife that your relationship is full of love and joy, Michael! There is surely no treasure more wonderful and valuable than that!

      Since I can fully relate to it with my relationship and marriage to George, I know exactly what you mean. Even during the 5 years before we married, it began like that, - just so natural, mutual, considerate and real. It lasted every day till his death nearly 8 years ago, a period 31 years, + 8 = 39 years, nearly half of my life, despite other less wonderful relationships we both experienced before it. It is still a very present love and constant comfort, which enriches my days here on this planet..

      Yours should last and bring joy for as long! It doesn't have to be 'perfect' but it IS real and you know how to cherish and protect it. You have found the loadstone which attracts and holds the prize! Hugs and SHELLS.

      Nellieanna We both want to make each other laugh,smile and have fun seeing and doing it all different ways. Love is the beautiful result.We look forward to our time together and we also have our alone time where we can grow as an individual that only builds a better couple. My time is writing hers is watching cooking shows etc. We both have had past relationships that we were treated badly. We had made a promise to ourselves to never make anyone feel that uncomfortable and unhappy again. Constantly we come across fresh interesting challenges that spark new life. It's like we are on our first date and our learning about each other and have butterflies in our stomach. Then when we have our differences we have to work together to come up with a solution. My creativity and spontaneous impulses and my wife's practical and we have to get this done attitude is a good combo. Thank you for sharing and caring.

      I'm so happy to hear about your happy marriage, Michael. Nothing is more satisfying than a good marriage. Mine with George was that way and it continues to bless me even though he's gone on ahead.

      Nellieanna I am so fortunate to have found someone who appreciates who I am in a passionate and deep love. Having the freedom and understanding of caring and sharing. As we help each other to enjoy the most basic needs of life. Love and understanding that creates wonderful emotions that remind us beauty comes in many forms visual, physical, emotional, mental and finding ways to enjoy. Thank you for reading and sharing.
