DO EVERYTHING TENDERLY ! BRIAN & ANGELA ~ A 5 5 4 Blank Verse Sonnet !




We live in a very AGGRESSIVE World

The evening breeze caress  the trees ~ TENDERLY 

So let us take our clues from NATURE ~ unfurled

The trembling trees embraced the breeze ~ TENDERLY

Let us be more TENDER to each other 24/7 !


Then You & I came wandering by ~ TENDERLY

Treat everyone like SISTER ~ BROTHER ~ TENDERLY

As the Shore was kissed by the Sea ~ TENDERLY

WE cant forget how two Hearts met ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™  TENDERLY

Your Arms opened wide & You took Me inside ~ TENDERLY !


Why does Life & Love have to be so so AGGRESSIVE ? 

WE could all live on the same PLANET ~ PEACEFULLY

You kissed my Lips ~ You took my Love ~ TENDERLY

So Lets make LOVE ~ not WAR ~ so so TENDERLY ~ AMEN !


Thanks for reading ~ comments welcome ~ Love ANGELA & BRIAN  ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

Its  CONFERENCE time so BRIAN & I will be offline for a few days ~ OK


Following the response to Yesterdays Poem we decided to stay on a GENTLE

THEME.  Despite the fact we PHYSIOS are often called PHYSIOTERRORISTS

I (ANGELA) have a very very gentle & healing touch (ask BRIAN !)  All My

Clients say that I have a very TENDER & CATHARTIC TOUCH.  One of the many

problems with the WEB is that there is a lot of S & M and BONDAGE and TEENS

 get the idea that inflicting PAIN is an essential part of SEXUAL ACTIVITY !

I thanks GOD that my Lover BRIAN is both a GENTLEMAN (& CABALLERO) &

A Gentle Man in Life & Love. We make LOVE - TENDERLY !  Love A & B  ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

    Such a charming interpretation of that familiar song and the lovely word chosen so tenderly written. The whole world would benefit by learning your verse and thank you for sharing it dear caring duo.


      THANKS FAY - ANGELA HERE ! I have had some rough Lovers in the past but when I met BRIAN - He was such a GENTLEMAN (what we call Un Caballero !) and so so gentle ! He kissed like feather and touched like a velvet glove. He teaches the Biology & Biochemistry of Beauty Therapy so He is familiar with Therapeutic Massage and I have taught Him some techniques so we can massage each other - AMEN ! Im going to Welington tomorrow (Tuesday) for a few days - so I will be off line - will comment on your Love Poem now !

      Blessings & Peace & Love
      Love ANGELA ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก

      This took me down memory lane and to a favorite singer of mine, Nat King Cole. Sound advice on tenderness is what the world needs.

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Thanks for your comment SEEK ~ much appreciated. We too love NKC (every note like liquid honey) but on this occasion we wanted a Female Singer ! The recent Mass Shootings in the USA are another example that we live in a very Aggressive Society ! A population of 330 million with 330 million GUNS never made sense to us !

        Blessings & Peace & Joy
        Yours ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

        • Seek

          Absolutely right about the gun culture. Beyond belief that the merchants of death should hold a stranglehold on public policy with scant regard for life. All in pursuit of profit. Thanks to both of you for accepting me as a friend. Regards.

          A sensitive write B&A. Pity Fido is not tender in his censoring type of bark. He is very fierce - only cos people 'forget' (on purpose?) to mark certain poems 18+. They dare not forget again, or they face his wrath! lol.

        • Suresh

          Carve a niche out for yourselves and invite the peace minded to be your companions

        • ForeverJesus6

          Very nice poem.

        • dusk arising

          I so agree that we would all benefit from more tenderness in our approach to so many aspects of our lives. Aggression has it's place when required but should not be up front in our approach or demeanor. Even in love, aggression does have its place in the act of love but of course love, and not just romantic love, is the tenderest of all emotions.

          With so much violence worldwide your choice of subject is well timed and i applaud you for this.

        • Goldfinch60

          Tenderness is so important in our lives and you two are more than blessed with it..

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks UNCLE ANDY ! My Mother always taught me to treat LADIES with a *Velvet Glove* and I hav ealways had a reputtuion for being a gentle lover ! Angela loves me for that because she has had some rough lovers in the past ! Consequently we are very gentle with each other ! My DAD is a competant Snooker Player and he says the more gentle you are with the Cue & the Balls ~ the higher the BREAK ~ and its true ! In all things in LIFE & LOVE be gentle !

            Blessings & Peace to YOU & JOYCE
            Yours BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

          • Neville

            a wonderful sentiment indeed.... we can only wish... and write poetry.... N

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks NEVILLE ~ Poetry by its very nature ~ is often Utopian ! But when ANGELA & I send each other Love Poems it often sows seeds for desired activities ~ AMEN ! Always ~ in all situations ~ Show a little Tenderness !

              Blessings & Peace & Joy
              Yours BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
