Thats just perfect..the poem really flows with the superb image Fee has taken. You know it’s love or indeed friendship, when those tiny details about a precious person, the insignificant to most people, seem incredible and magnificent to you
[...] I'd give anything to laugh, my friend Feel new life in love again Pluck bluebells for your bouquet Smell May flowers as we lay Upon spread quilt, mid-afternoon Wind song plays inspired tunes Her hands caress away iced pain Under cherry blossom rain And as we cling like shaking leaves Our journeys end with sharing peace In love again, this breathing bliss There is no time lost while we kiss __________________________________ Would you like to hear … Read More [...]
There is nothing quite so like the feeling of love…it is no wonder so many would give anything for it, to lose themselves even for those fleeting moments of a warm embrace. A beautiful piece to couple with spring, my friend. All too appropriate.
Your expression of the fragility of a new love in the poem and the fresh new colours of spring in the picture, it’s a perfect match ! Congratulations ! It’s beautiful to read, thank you for sharing this!
Aw it’s out there for us all somewhere, so they say, whoever they are. Just hoping maybe some of us will at least see a glimpse of it before we die, and no time is ever wasted in kissing. Unspoken communication is the best kind, always.
I wish you springtime, I wish you ardor, I wish you love. Time does stop when you’re “in love” but loving and being loved is so much richer, deeper and ultimately satisfying. Spring brings the joy of it all for all nature echoes that desire! Beautiful.
‘I’d give anything to laugh, my friend
Feel new life in love again’
‘Smell May flowers’ whilst
‘Her hands caress away iced pain’
I so wish it too, replete with
those butterfly feelings freshly grew
~ may those wings take flight ~
’cause you just never know what’s
around the corner ~ to ‘stroke away that pain’ ~
So lovely Adam ~ with many wishes wished ~ Lib ~ @Libithina
And this, my friend, brings me spinning back to the beautiful, vibrant light that is life. The photo, absolutely stunning, and the words? Brilliant, hopeful, breathing and so very much alive and in love. It is the beauty of connection that is shared here, under the cherry blossom rain. Encore…I await more!
New love is fantastic. A once in a lifetime thing in any relationship. I’ve been married 21 years May 5th and I still remember all the energy and “zing” the first 6 weeks or so of knowing each other. He is STILL great, but that “time” is really special. Sweet, very sweet words you wrote.
“under cherry blossom rain”…what a glorious way to envision love…oh, those wonderful opiates released by our brain when the chemistry between two people animate our entire scope of vision…to find love again is a rare thing and how you are so well aware of this, and your poem wants to share those indescribable feelings of elation…but more importantly your words belong side by side enhancing each other, as you and your new found love do…what a joy to read…true poetry…
What a beautiful expression of that which still lives in our hearts, sometimes dormant and atrophied yet still alive enough to awaken in the dawn after reading a poem like yours. There is hope beneath the trees filled with cherry blossoms. Thanks for the awakening.
First, I must applaud Fee on her amazing photograph; it brought me right back to England, on my horse in Burridge Wood, Exmoor. And your poem was perfect. It embodied that spring fever flush of frustration and desire – part pleasure, part pain. Nice one, Adam.
