Superb Write! Regrets we all have a few! My favorite line

“as youth’s vigour fades within life’s subtle breeze” You’ve inspired a poem in my mind! Now to write it!

what an absolutely divine intro you have placed at the top of the page sir .. and then, you capture a life gently and oh\' so perfectly, incorporating into the convoluted folds so many of its nuances that no matter who stumbles or falls upon these words by design ... they will each be able to relate ...

Stunning poetry L.B and without any doubt, truly..

Many of our achievements are behind us as we live longer in our lives. We can look back at them and be thankful that we have done them.

Joe Dawson said:

Life\'s rush seemingly never ending, then comes the day that the phone stops ringing, the urgent meetings fall silent, and on a dusty shelf in an empty garage a Filofax and a part-used tin of Simonize bear witness to faster times and better times. Now long gone, and so too the many voices that gave spring to the step, and powered ambition to the dizzying heights from which one fell. It lasts but a short time and yet feels like forever. Enjoyable write. Joe

Ah yes achievements, my land of yesterday. Superceeded of course by the relaxation into ageing and insight into the unnecessary.

Enjoyed reading your words.

So many loves in a lifetime, but which one would I metaphorically jump off a cliff with (cliffs being very much in focus at present)? Such a love, such a night, such a write. Palpable, touchable, real. Excellent. Joe

In the Quite
Neville said:


I popped back here to take a peek and stayed for longer than I had anticipated .... some might say I was loitering .. I would rather suggest it was a linger .... still beautifully crafted and otherwise timeless ...

Love can be so strong that even jumping off the cliff together is ok as your Spirits will be together as one.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

ANGELA here - Thanks LBM for an intriguing poem of Ladies & Love ! For Millenia Ladies have used Cosmetics to enhance their Natural Beauty ! However for Brian to love me I have no need of Warpaint ~ He loves me *au naturelle* ! Over the last three years the TRUST based on our LOVE has grown to the extent that we could react the scenario vividly described in the final three stanzas ! I trust this reflects the TRUST Brian has in ME !

Blessings & Peace to You & Your
Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ! ! !

Wonderful love story so beautifully done.... it just struck me that if this goes on too long, so many young pretty faces will never be seen while they are still fresh! Yikes what a pity.

A fine write LB.
We\'re still not helping ourselves sometimes. We \'forget\' to social distance, and simple things like that.
The Days of The Black Death - and me singing. Dunno which was worse! The latter caused, and causes, endless torments! lol.

Neville said:


apart from the fact I feel compelled to point out that you have penned a belter here, and I do mean that .. filled with sage wisdom as it is ..

I must confess I feel as if I have lost a period of undetermined time, because I can not fathom how I could have missed this page and its content until only just now ...

Oh well said. Beauty takes on maturity as maturity itself appreciates the gains it brings to once young flesh.
Our years teach us so much. Eyes become opened to things unseen in youth.
