I enjoy most the wind
carrying dandelion parachutes,
dispersing tiny seeds across a meadow.
That same breeze winding
erratic patterns into my hair.
The softness of a new sweater;
it will never feel so soft again.

I like to explore the meaning of
of life over a glass of wine,
all laid back and philosophic
unless it becomes oppressive;
then a soft smile to break the tension
and an almost kiss.

  1. Holly, the almost kiss could be reconciled that it is premature and will happen at another time or could be considered lucky as it should not happen between friends who have other loves. The wanting may exist in both, but the mind is telling you which path to follow. Keith

  2. If one supposes the answer to the meaning of life to be 14, a third of 42, and if one knows that 14 is associated with deliverance, salvation and affinity, does an almost kiss tease deliverance like your hair tossed in the breeze? Promise salvation like being enveloped in a soft new sweater? Or simply show affinity like dandelions floating on the wind?

  3. Her soft sweater and almost kiss would be my dream I wouldnโ€™t want to wake up from. Such a sweet and tantalizing romance here with perhaps a smooth Franken Wine and philosophical whimsy. I wonder if there is such a thing as time better spent? I somehow doubt it. Lovely dreams cast here, Rene.

      1. Iโ€™m so happy you are uplifted and encouraged because you bring such beauty to this world and in every line you share, I see the best part of an artful soul. There can be many burdens to bear, but this part of you always shines through. Never doubt that. ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒบ
