If we were having coffee (on the 4th of November 2018)

If we were having coffee today, then you’d tell me that I don’t look fresh. I’d reassure you and tell you that I am a whole lot better.

In the morning before heading home, we purchased a lot of fish and headed for a walk along the seaside. It was low tide again, but the changes from one day to the next were remarkable. By the sea every day is unique. Of course every day is unique everywhere, just by the sea we realise this a lot easier. Continue reading “Poetic Images”

I would assure you that I am fine, I’d underline that writing over the … Continue reading If we were having coffee 21 November 2015

Young Love

Young Love

His lips on hers, her lips on his. Their kiss was full of youth, full of love, and full of joy.

Slowly they stepped backwards, feeling the tingle on their lips. They opened their eyes, which had been closed during the embrace and slowly raised their looks. Sparkling eyes of lovers met. Their hearts were beating in unison.

He dropped her hands, took a step backwards, and drew a deep breath. She smiled at him knowingly. Continue reading “Young Love”
