This poem of little tidbits is of Rosemary's telling, in her responses to our poetry. Her endearing candor has been a source of delight and quite a few chuckles. Thanks for your sweetness, Rosemary.

Skinny Dipping With Rosemary

She’s throws her garments on the grass
And slowly slithers in
The sparkling creek churns happily
And dances round her skin
The waters are as clear as glass
Cool liquid still prestine
While Dale sits by with sparkling eye
Devouring the scene

She bathes in showers gentle splash
But instinct begs for more
Then nonchalantly drops her towel
Upon the hardwood floor
Leaving pure imagination
Blowing in the wind
While Dale sits by with eager eye
That slowly takes it in

They sit and write their poetry
With parchment and a plume
Beside the flowing waters
In the thralls of honeymoon
Aesthetic recall of sheer joy
Was always my belief
What wondrous bliss sparks reminisce
Of just one dangling leaf

The things that dance inside her mind
They are of passions brew
Experiences the likes of which
Are known to very few
What deeds of dare that she would share
The best with likes of us
The laughs I reap from her mystique
Are really quite a plus

So throw restraint into the wind
And let your hair hang down
Enjoy the day in every way
And we’ll just hang around

Way to go, Rosemary!
Love ya, Liz

Oh, Liz...This is lovely!  You have captured some of her essence here with your poem and Dale's too.  They are going to be so pleased ...I can just see them now, Rosemary discovering it first and reading it out loud to Dale.  Smiles to you, my sweet friend.

I'm feeling a little voyeuristic after that wonderful read Liz!  Excellent and so full of imagery. I really enjoyed this ... well done!

Best wishes,

When Rosemary sees it ... she's going
to be thrilled ... Dale will smile knowingly.
I loved the voyeurism.

Hey, Liz!  Imagine my surprise at being wakened at six something by my darling husband in paroxysms of roaring laughter, sitting at his computer some six or eight feet from our bed!  "What on earth is funny?"  I ask sleepily, and when he tells me, between gasps, still laughing, what Elizabeth has written, I have to come out and see!  Now that you've got me giggling so hard my eyes are watering, I just have to tell you thank you!  We're both going to bed now, with smiles from ear to ear.  He was on one of those all-night writing things, and I gave up my own writing about three, and crawled in.  Good thing we don't have little children any more.  Getting a weeeee bit older has very distinct advantages!
Thanks again, for the best laugh we've enjoyed in quite some time!  And that's saying a lot, because we do a lot of laughing together.  But you, my friend, take the cake!
You're good, Elizabeth; you're really good!

Liz - Finally!  An easy decision today - I agree with Rosemary (and everybody else) that you are one amazin' lady.  What a talent!  Loved every line and twist.
