(A Villanelle)

Throughout our lives we're ever dreaming of
The day we'll find that perfect sweet caress.
How shall we know when friendship's really love?

A quest for raptured hearts the conduit of
Life's bask in yearning throngs of WistfullNess.
Forever seems our lifelong dreams are of

The hope we may imbue our hearts thereof
With exultation, but we shan't unless
We recognize when friendship's turned to love.

Whence all emotions fit like hand in glove
It may just be - 'Tis serendipitous.
Those things in life we're ever dreaming of

As rhapsody's sung on the wing of dove
And, one to each, our promise we profess
How do we know this friendship's really love?

Whence we have placed our faith in Hands above
Each ray of sun bestows SagaciousNess
No longer things we're only dreaming of
We'll surely know when friendship's one with love.

I am truly awed, no other way to say it. Wow.

Nan, your words are so completely beautiful! I don't what else to say! I must agree with Dream...I am also awed!

Another beautiful writing Nan.. I Love it.. It's kind of the start and ending of the post that I have up.. I don't think I would have seen this if I didn't scroll all the way down.. I wish that I had more words to express your writings, but I think you know how I feel by now.. Keep the writing coming and I'll keep reading..

No one can put it better than you Nanner!!

Love,
Lady

When you go out on a date, arrive at the restaurant three hours before closing, and talk so long the waiter says, "Were closing the kitchen. Would you like to order now?" Your food comes, and you hardly touch it because you can't pull yourself away from the other person long enough to even take a bite. You pay the bill and still you stay, only to leave with doggie bags in hand and the cleaning crew turning chairs up onto the tables. You say "good-night" with a passionate kiss and go your separate ways until the marrow. And in the morning… the leftovers are the best food you ever had. That's when it started.
Thanks for sparking the memories with your poetic ways.

P.S. I got your e-mail, but I can't seem to e-mail you in return. Tried a few times with no success.

Of all your poetry (the ones I've read), this, I think, is my very favorite! I missed it first time around. I'm very glad I'm hanging out here tonight ... just to read this.
