                     Sweet Missives.

       

      Love's sweetest missives, perchance, those most fleeting,

      as the countenance, of loving temperament they present.

      Wide opened those eyes, to convey their tender greeting,

      mischievous winks, the nuance of knowing, compliment.

       

      Love's briefest touch, a momentary, but lingering caress,

      that deliberate sweep, of fingertips, soft as wispy cloud.

      Akin to Spring zephyrs, a brevity, with much to express,

      lovers' missives, an awareness, of vows stated not aloud…

        Hi Bernie
        Re: Vows stated not aloud".
        When I hark back to my youth and remember some of the missives I
        composed to young ladies,it beggars belief how I managed to stay
        unwed for twenty eight years since birth.
        Those were the days when `Breach of Promise' actions cluttered our
        court calendars.
        Nowadays that has changed to paternity suits and child maintenance,
        plus who gets the house and the car.

        But I mustn't grumble for I had a great time learning the ins and
        outs (if you get my drift) of romance.

        Ladies, I love `em all and no fair damsel has ever, to the best of my
        knowledge, spoken ill of my attempts to befriend them.

        As always

        Wings

          Dear Bernie: Honestly I did have to look up the word "missive". Is
          this a Victorian term? It is most endearing! You sound like a
          sweetheart! You're wife is a lucky girl indeed!
          The subtle touch reminds me of a pair of lovebirds feeding each other
          and knowing each other's many nooks and crannies. Shnooks and
          Grannies?
          A personal aside; from my female perspective and having been a "Miss"
          and often felt like a "Missed" when it came to Love and Marriage did
          make me feel at first a bit "stand offish" in terms of the title. But
          then I realized I always prejudge words and this is something I am
          working to overcome. I do not like stereotyping of myself so why
          would I do this to words which really are not always negative. Wonder
          how many negative words versus positive words there are in the
          dictionary. My hypothesis would be there are more negative words as
          this negative inspired thinking is mankinds' fate. And having the
          feeling that I was missed or dismissed by cupid's arrow I gave leave
          of my senses when I spied the word "missive"! Amd although once bit
          twice shy regarding love, I think becoming a love avoidance warrior,
          foolish indeed! "For it better to have love and lost then to never
          have loved at all"Romeo and Juliet quote here. And so feeling I had
          missed the target as far as love is concerned I seriously doubted if
          I would ever find love again. And then came Leonard, my meat and
          potatoes man of stability and conservative to a fault, totally
          opposite of myself in every way, and yet so similar. Way back when I
          had gotten so ticked at feeling missed that I became a Ms! Plus I
          liked the fact I did not need to refer to any form of marital or sex
          status. All bonuses when it comes to choosing the prefix to my surname
          (sirname).Yes, I have kept my maiden name as I still am a maid and
          probably will be an old maid til the day I die. Yes it bothers me?
          What power do I have to change this? Why should I be strapped to
          another's star when I should be my own person and respected as a
          personae sum grata not personae non grata? Not another rant again,
          yes, it is another rant! Sigh!
          Now another "missive". It is odd this synchronicity, so close and
          yet so far; Miss, Missed, Missive? I would prefer my proper pronoun
          to be Doctor and Mister King but that would not give any indiction to
          whom wears the pants now or the larger hat, would it? Even though I
          probably would have preferred tradition, life did not present that to
          me and I had to hack through life on a broken-backed old nag - me! I
          was in my opinion unlucky in love. Having had relationship sour,
          embittered me I admit. I finally got smart and realized I am going to
          be me like it or lump it. If the boyfriend don't like the real me,
          well too bad they are not worth the fuss or the work it takes to be
          plastic anyway! I am much better in love now, thank-you very much!
          Probably I had the ideal image in my mind as to what I wanted for my
          life, for my husband, and this tainted my expectations. Surely I was
          not one to blame when the Cinderella syndrome (referring to your
          earlier scream of a parody)presented itself in the multimedia ad
          naseum. I think it was important to realize how love happens when
          there is a sensitivity towards the other and you can be 100%
          confortable in the relatinship (as if that ever happens). Tender
          mercies! Your poem conveys to me that you have indeed known true love
          and you are a gentle and kind lover. Your sensitivity is most
          obvious in you tactile descriptions. Any advise for the love lorn?
          Although I am in a relationship it sure needs some of those "missive
          sparks" as I enter the second half of a century here on this
          planet.Please dont mention Cialis or Viagara, I would only go all
          natural and then with much trepidation! My advise to the lovelorn for
          what it is worth? Get what you need when you can and when it comes to
          love, linger longer because it is gone much too quickly, as a brief
          candle in the wind to quote the Bard or Sir Elton John. Am I in love
          now? Yes, but it is different, although there is not a mighty din
          from the rooftops, the subtle and sensitive approach to love is much
          more appreciated anyway. I'd take mature love anyday although I do so
          miss those first time missives!GIBJ

                           Sweet Missives.

             

            Love's sweetest missives, perchance, those most fleeting,

            as the countenance, of loving temperament they present.

            Wide opened those eyes, to convey their tender greeting,

            mischievous winks, the nuance of knowing, compliment.

             

            Love's briefest touch, a momentary, but lingering caress,

            that deliberate sweep, of fingertips, soft as wispy cloud.

            Akin to Spring zephyrs, a brevity, with much to express,

            lovers' missives, an awareness, of vows stated not aloud…
