Mind scribbles while I listen

Mind scribbles while I listen

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

some thought strings from an afternoon

"
Mind scribbles on a sunny afternoon
doodling flowers and trees
words wash over me 
like the cool autumn breeze

and I wonder if you know
that in every breath
I feel you
every song
I hear you
every minute
I want you
near …

how time has flown
and stood in exactly
the same place …
is still a mystery
to me.

we missed each other's firsts
and turned a corner down 
the road we thought was straight ...

and in the darkness shines a light
it's always you ---

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I'm not a huge fan of romantic writing, but this one is near-perfection becuz of the simplicity & clarity of your observations. This paints love with precious pops of everyday thoughts keeping two people lovingly connected. This kind of love is written about so seldom, I sometimes forget how irresistible it might be! (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie

That totally warms my heart. Yup. The unfiltered. I am smitten. Smiling even when I don't want to. :.. read more
Lovely romantic thoughts. Second stanza particularly appealing, and that sums up love for me. When someone is constantly on your mind, from waking till you fall asleep. Nicely conveyed Lyn.

Thank you ever so much.
In this mad hectic life, we lead, it's all we can do to reminisce.
But when we do, and someone special pops in, what a treat.
Probably the greatest gift we have, our memory.

Thank you very much
The romanticism theme is pretty strong in this. Trying to keep someone you're in love with off your mind is tough. Everything around you looks better.

Nice one, Lyn.

Oddly enough it's a new experience for me (well, newish) on a scale of past versus the last few year.. read more
this is incredibly romantic, time moves on but sometimes those strong feelings stay right where they are

I liked the lake near my house. Lake St. Clair and time to wander in time and in thoughts. Thank you Lyn for sharing the amazing poetry.
