Yes, Unsub is spot-on about your first verse.... you show my inner thoughts when my head hits the pillow.

Still plagued with daytime slumbers from my drug regieme I\'m often more hopeful than successful at night though.

I\'m thinking these words must be similar to your own bedtime mantra, and a successful one too, for we, your readers, know you are fully awake each pre-dawn to poetically enchant us with your enquiring observations of natures day awakening.

You are so amazingly good at being you, thank you for every thought you share and create in my view!

A picture never dull, like the light inside you.

ANGELA HERE (9pm Thursday !} GOOD MORNING FAY ~ thanks for sharing ! This is my interpretation ! I knew lots of NUNS I was raised as a Catholic ! In my mind they had a sweet & peaceful life. The Younger ones were very beautiful but had chosen to be perpetual Virgins & Brides of Christ ! I would love to be a NUN but only for a few weeks like Whoopie Goldberg in Sister Act to lick the Choir into Shape ! Love the Structure & Subject of your very elegant Poem ! Thnaks for checking WOODLAND SOUNDS !

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Love ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

Unsub said:

Fay,

had to read this twice as I fell asleep after the opening amazing stanza!

\"Come drug of sleep,
drop, heavy cloak of woolly mind that dulls clear thought.\"

that is the best opening of a poem I\'ve read in a long time.

A whispered version of this repeated over & over with some gentle rain sound in the background will be the perfect insomnia cure.

You\'ve crafted a sleepy image you can just snuggle up into.

Unsub.

Aloha Fay,
I love my sunrises here in Hawaii (the sunsets too!), but yours sounds so much nicer!
I won\'t be on MPS as much as I was in the past, but will try to drop in to read some more of your work.

Do you stroll the beach predawn, catching the moments words in your hair as the tide draws light from distant horizon. Then home to pen the words of glorious Sol\'s rebirth that the planet may continue to live.

Reading your flow places pictures in my mind with which to romance.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

ANGELA HERE (11pm Tuesday) - Thanks for sharing a sacred experience in a very sensitive way ! I have a sweet tooth so the metaphor rang a Sweet Shop Bell for me ! Being Spanish i guess my excursions into the *World of Sensual Pleasure* started in 2002 when I was 14 ! However being a Good Catholic I saw my Virginity as something sacred to be *preserved* for the Right Man @ the Right Time. Taste is an important sense in sexual awareness and you describe my fave flavours in that context ! Butterscotch - Caramel - Cherry Lips - Treacle & Chocolate ! All good metaphors for the BEST TASTES I experienced in my first encounters of the sensual kind. On average my BEAUS were two years older than ME ! Brian incidently is FIVE years older and mature enough to be MY HUSBAND next year ! I attended an All Girls Public School - so my first sensual encounters with *BOYS* were at at Church Socials Outings & Dances. My PAPA had the notion that if a BOY was a Catholic he would be *DECENT* my Mother knew better ! In my adolescent experiences my *Girl Friends* always scented & hugged better but I have never been BI ! Your final lines perfectly sum up adolecsent BOY / GIRL sensuous exchanges - innocent tastings and first love discreteness. In the 21st C the worldwide web has driven a steamroller through innocence and for MEN has turned to LUST and every page & position of the KARMA SUTRA. I am grateful I was just on the other side of that. Brian & I are now Teen group leaders in an Evangelical Church and it is a minefield ! I was fortunate to survive Medical School VIRGINUS INTACTUS - It took a lot of will power and some Men regarded me as FIGID - MOI FRIGID - ask BRIAN ! My whole concept of S*X changed completly when I met BRIAN - He is so so gentle and one of the few Men I have met - he is totally sensitive to My feelings and our Hearts reall do beat as one - but thats another SUBJECT at a much more mature level !

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Love ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

Oh Fay, how you romance my first love uncertain fumblings. Would that i had had todays heart, knowledge and guiles for my young sweet lover that she may have felt some of your poetry within her amorous soul.

A lovely picture of romance, sadly lost apon the young fumblers of the day. But such an encouragement for an old buzzard like me to try and capture for \'next time\'.

Thank goodness for sat nav the sailor\'s modern day saviour. But what on earth they\'d use if a war broke out and the satellites were shot down..... black rock would score again methinks.

A poem each cornish seaman should be aware of though twould be too negative to dwell upon.

There sure are some nasties to come a cropper on Cornwalls coastline..... of course, much used by bad persons in the past who would lure ships onto the rocks with murderous intent for their cargo.

Grim reading today Fay.

A fine sea write Fay. As I say, the only water-life I might see, is the pond at the back of the Co-op. Well, there\'s a river a couple of miles away too!

Those times were so hard that we have no real idea except through what we have been told but those hard times are still with us but the forms are now so refined that they may not be seen until it is too late.

Wonderful words Fay.

My great, great grandfather was a captain... I always thought of a ship... only much more recently did I realise twas of a Devonshire/Cornish tin mine....

my son recently inherited a brooch that contains all the original silver initially extracted ..

Hard times indeed.....

Excellent reminder Fay
Sadly the scars of our past that should keep us in check have just moved hi tech and they continue without shame
