I was reminiscing…
We rendezvoused in the rugged alpine
at that renowned romantic inn known for
it’s ritzy understated highland charm.
You strode in, rugged and rakish
with that evocative look that said everything
yet revealed nothing.
I recall the radiant smile that transformed your features
to reassuring and receptive;
my reflective mood assuaged, I relaxed a bit.
I resolved that no matter how refined, robust and rousing you were,
I would be rational and reasonable in the swell of your raffishness.
My resolve though real, dissolved the moment your eyes met mine.
You said I looked ravishing and resplendent in my ruby-rich dress
and rewarded me with a soft revealing kiss.
Your emotions rarely seen were laid bare.
Another taste of my ‘alphabet soup’ word explorations.
This one is for St Valentine: “He’s breaking hearts all over town.” (Reckless Kelly)
Cosmic sunshine to you.
