A Story of Delicacy
They met under the covers,
This couple in the night.
He and she barely touched,
But their subtle intensity
With her fingers, she
Followed the lines of his life that
Were etched in his hands.
She spent a half a hour just on the
Right hand alone.
The touch lifted her.
Then she went to his left hand. It
Too told his story.
She felt it in the hollow of his palm
And in the strength of his fingers.
She was reminded of what she
Already knew about him.
Their lips almost met,
Their bodies almost entwined,
But intentionally they did not.
Hands heeded the passion.
By placing her hand
Just where it needed to be.
She did the same.
Audio and Author Comment~
Thank you, readers for the wonderful comments about my Christmas poetry. Now, however, it is time to change the tone. I will reserve comment on this particular posting, because there are many ways to interpret it. Let me know what you think. Enjoy. skp
An Afternoon Tea Served From a Bygone Era
Here is a picture, taken by Gail, of some of the glassware on the table. You will see the Fostoria which was my mother's. Other serving pieces dated to the thirties and forties. Also notice a few pieces of Wedgwood china. Although an older pattern, the set is mine. And then there are the crystal goblets 'liberated' by James' father from a hotel in Belgium during World War II.
Notice the image of Sue Baker in the wine glass. An accidental photo, turned into a gorgeous 1940's style depiction. Beauty is eternal.
Books and CDs For You to Enjoy
The company of Earlene Grey chose not to advertise this last Christmas season. Although we have done so in the past, it just didn't seem right any longer. Christmas often can turn into a frenzy of shopping, so we opted out. We wanted to be true to our message.
As we move to the next year, remember the pleasure of reading a real book. Remember the joy and insight of poetry written to be understood. We have several books you may enjoy. Please email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-655-2809, if you need help deciding upon the right one. 😄
