An Older Couple in Love

When we are talking and I look at your hair,

your mystery deepens, how

can the world be in a few strands

of black and grey, with a little bit

of brown?

how can one set of eyes

hold so many answers, give so many clues

making sense of our world,

and how do you still hold the fire

with skin so soft?

you intoxicate me….

  1. Very beautiful. Can you turn my beloved into a poet by June 8 which will be our 48th anniversary? No, thought not. I will just thoroughly enjoy your poetry and your love.

    1. Congratulations on 48! That is amazing! And what a beautiful compliment! Thank you Maren! A suggestion for your partner is to take you on a romantic getaway, maybe a balcony overlooking the ocean? If not maybe a very special dinner, even on your patio with candles and flowers? Congratulations again. Peace and wonderful blessings to you both.

  2. Such poems are so needed. We all write about young love, full of beauty and charm, but love which has been there for years and more, it’s written about so less.

    Your words are mesmerizing
