It’s the big day
And what can I say?
When the romance works out it needs few words…
So here’s to …..bliss!


You touch me where all is melting
And there is nothing to hold on to
but tears as they fall
And feeling as it breaks
over us


A finger placed on lips that says
“No word”

A mouth on mouth on limb
that presses home

A bringing to again and again until
We are taken
over the edge

Very few of us have Mr Darcy in our sights today
So we can either join the party
buy ourselves a bunch of flowers, a box of chocolates, a silk night dress, 
treat a friend to a surprise
whatever takes our fancy… 

Or ignore the whole thing

I’ve done all of these….

Happy Day!


  1. The flowers are beautiful, and the poetry so evocative! I bought a bunch of daffodils yesterday!

  2. The flowers will be cheaper tomorrow of course!!I usually grab a bunch at half price on the 15th...what a cheapskate I am a heart.

    1. That's a great idea. I must pop to the shops now!
