My stories

It's Only A Word

Love...a four letter word often misused. The final stanza is where you will find me now. The picture is of a wonderful friend, confidant, lover and wife.

Romance Lust or Love?

Not all candllight dinnners lead this way, but how many of my gender hope for the last verse? Okay I got cynical...

Bee Line

I am romantic 364 days of the year when no one tells me to be...I was tempted to be cynical, but the woman I love deserves more than that.


My wife and I often say 'I hate you, now I'm singing it....(evil grin ensues )

Ten To One

A poem with one pun too many for a man who had one bet too many....ten years without a bet

I didn't intend  to read from start to finish, but I did and loved it.  I know that feeling that comes back in an instant when a smell hits my senses.  I still wonder at the completness of the experience that includes the emotion of that moment...

I so totally agree with your poem.  When I read a poem and wish 'I'd written it' then it comes from gratitude for putting into words what I have felt.

You've done it again

Posted on Mon, 14 Jan 2019

i loved this poem.  I spent years splashing cash thinking it would impress.  Then my daughter came along with gifts that meant so much and I was transformed.  A message of love in each gift.  Caring...a huge plus in the world  of giving.
