Something About Music


~ ~ ~
You whistle Greensleeves
while you cook, this autumn night.
~ ~ ~
Do you know my inner being
is swirling around you?
Can you feel my desire
for our joining?
Is the kaleidoscope of my
memories visible to your spirit?
My love for you wraps tenderly
around your dear familiar form.
~ ~ ~
You move peacefully about the kitchen,
your delicious lips pursed in music;
I can feel them urgent upon my own.
You open the oven, and I remember
you sweetly opening me, and stoking
my own fire as I awakened yours.
You carefully fit the long fillets in the skillet,
and I think of the entrées to come ...
~ ~ ~
Ah, Greensleeves;
as my eyes trace your quiet steps;
with melting love, my ardent musing sips;
and oh, how gentle is that sound
from your honeyed lips.
~ ~ ~
~ ~ ~
(Love poem to my wonderful husband.)

Oh RoseMary...
I have never seen anyone proclaim their love for someone
in this fashion. How wonderful...this is truly
romantic my dear! This is love at it's
finest, and it's spilled all over this page!
Thank you for putting a smile on my face!

Right...

So you like me cookin' .., I'm just wonderin' now which cookin' it is you like. Honey, you need to wipe the butter from yer chin. Here try a little piece of this fillet of soul (I mean sole) remember to role it around and around forty times or so and don't swallow it whole. My mother taught me that..! Now look at twat you've gone an done... you need to keep your eyes on your food and get dem off the flesh, blush blush... Nice work baby..!

I love you... (lucky virus)

Rosemary,

You've described the 'ordinary' task of cooking in such a loving way and thrown in a pinch of seduction as well.  Great job.

ESP and lorilockheart - thank you so much for your sweet comments!  They mean so much to me!  I'm not always certain whether anyone else would understand my feelings - sharing at Passions gives me good clues!

Lucky, Rosemary...who is the more fortunate one in this scenario?  One of my favorite musical pieces...Greensleeves...and a man who  not only know the piece, but can whistle.

I am only envious in the knowledge that the two of you probably enjoy dancing, too.
