"A Classroom Note..."

"A Classroom Note..."

A Poem by Chris

For some it is ALWAYS Valentine's Day

"A Classroom Note..."

Fingertip kisses and silly-sad smiles
sideways glances 
mind-full ...blushes...
stardust squiggles
and pause-full shivers and
breath-full sighs.

"...My Valentine..."

You are ever a dream my love -
a dream a l w a y s
held so soft and tightly within...

The taste of Love's remembrance 
of starlight and magyk and music
and glistening eyes and
tones and silly smiles
and endless "touches" 


The feel of Time's sands
found and shared and treasured
'til lost as each flowed through 
outstretched fingertips
to be missed with each silent sunset
and coffee-mysted sunrise


You are the "seasoning" of my soul
the taste to my existence
...the smile of my heart.

I still hear the echoes 
of my whispers
to the diamond sparking skies -
...and always will.

Perfectly said, and true for those of us lucky to have someone for a long time...

Sometimes it seems life happens in a glance - a single wish-you-hadn't-blinked glance.
A remembrance of first love's imprint on your heart, and mind. It flavors all that follows for good or not.

We invest so much when we love...
Tender and so sweet and pure. Innocent, tentative words of love- "Fingertip kisses and silly-sad smiles"...with your evocative words and imagery, you bring us back to classroom days of glory and joy and candy valentines, of -"starlight and magyk and music....Lyrical, lovely flow and form. Another softer, vulnerable side of you my friend. Exquisite.

Your welcome chris
Soft, gentle and beautiful use of words my friend. The words danced gentleness, need and love. Those whispers make us wish for things missed and gone. Thank you Chris for sharing the outstanding poetry.

A beautiful bit of prose. I felt the love expressed here.

Nothing but a big sigh...and a gentle inhalation to sigh again xx

Ever a dream... and always a pause...
Remembering love. Whilst not always a fruitful or even pleasant exercise we still yearn for it to return and we sometimes perversely, sometimes wistfully still wish to remember. Excellent work Chris.
