Picture one bright red happy heart
and you'll picture my heart
over~loaded with love and joy
permanently pressed within
the cycle of forever

A tender heart set to delicate
tagged ~ wash with care
make note like colors are a must
spin on gentle for a
longer lasting love

In the normal wear and tear of life
there are bound to be stains
some more stubborn than others
we reach for that magic fix
cross our fingers & pre~treat

Sometimes tho' happiness
seems to fade no matter the care
even when we follow directions
hopes & dreams go down the drain
leaving us with empty suds

Picture one bright red happy heart
you'll picture what my heart once was
for through the cycles of love
it came out bleached blue
so much for wash and wear

Pinky? You make laundry day desirable on each little square on the calendar. An ingenious series of cycles that makes me switch from NPR to your far more engaging poetry as Iím folding all that has tossed about like my emotions each time I read your words.

I see now, that though your words are merged so perfectly together, so harmoniously, they can never hope to surpass the heart that creates them.  

Namaste

Pinkydoo! Delightful poem! Great metaphor. While PU may have found religion sorting his socks, I'm still a heathen. Pink really suits you and I can see it in your work. ~L

My dear Pinky Pink Pink,

I find no comedy in your poetry. What I do find Pinky, is warmth, sensuality and reverence for which I endeavor to relate in return, with the greatest of respect. I'm not one who belabors singular, generic applause.
You and I both know the 'reality' and the 'unreality' of poetry forums. I myself started posting on a single page site nearly 20 years ago. My background is broad ranging from radio, television, music and premeditated mayhem. I'm an ex-Marine with 3 tours in Vietnam under my belt and live and love as though yesterday never happened.
I change monikers here every now and again to try and get past the "status quo" and it's no secret to anyone here what those monikers are.

You're an exceptional poetess Pinky (or poet if you prefer) and I admire your expressions immensely. Take no offense I beg of you, I just like to be playful. I'll be gone soon enough and likely return as yet another screwball...or maybe not.
I might be a girl again, that was fun! Or a tall, dark stranger. Sometimes I appear at just the right time. Other times at the wrong time.  
At any rate my dear Pinky, I'm 'up to nothing' yet always 'up to something'.
I'm tight in my relationship and she's just a few steps from me even as I key all this in. She knows I just like to have fun. That's what I'd like you to know too because I know you like to have fun as well.

Just thought you'd like to know something more about 'Phineas', Pinky. If you didn't, then why are you still reading this?      

With Respects,

               No matter who I am today.

That was almost better than a paid background check!!!  ha ha  Think  you may have the beginnings of a thesis here!  lol  First let me just say thank you for giving of your time to read my humble offerings ~ I do appreciate your kind replies and take them just as that and nothing more ~ So NO I am not holding a secret torch! ha ha  I to am silly and like to have fun, so no worries there. Happy to hear you have a wonderful relationship ~ Those are hard to come by these days. I have enjoyed your humor, wit and writing since coming to this site ~ Hope you don't disappear to soon ~ I shall now curtsy and take my leave of you Sir Phineas ~ Happy Weekend! Pinky
