A Sunday kind of Love

 

 

 

He wanted a Sunday

kind of love

but it was only Tuesday

and Friday

wasn’t even in

my rear view mirror.

Many thanks, Ken!
Ahhh… but the Sunday kind of love -- that's the kind that lasts. Languid Sundays, reveling in time… those long, lazy afternoons in each others arms.

If he'll devote Sunday to you, he'll devote every day.

Of course, that's before kids. LOL

...you, too!
Wow- my mom played “A Sunday Kind of Love” by the great Dinah Washington all through my childhood. Her voice was so mellow, sultry, complex, emotive...I learned every word and tried to imitate her singing when I was around 7 yrs old. My mom played the greats for me- music was the precious gift she gave me. Kelly, your smoky, noir poem and lady brought it all back to me. Great wordplay, nuance and teasing in your concentrated and amazing lines. Well, Maybe she’ll tell him, “Come up and see me sometime”.....or....maybe she won’t!- ha! Loved this.

I'm thrilled you enjoyed my little Noir. Thank you so much, Fran! Have a wonderful day.
Ah to quote Spanky and Our Gang...Sundays will never be the same.
A Sunday kind of love on Tuesday? Wouldn't that get you kicked out of the office? ;>}

There is something about that splash of red in the picture...I wonder if John Garfield is lurking in the background.

A good write, Kelly.

That splash of red lipstick is what snared my attention. Thanks, Ted!
this made me laugh somehow

the way it's worded is cleverly fun


a wicked little jaunt of wordplay

No better time than the present I always say now if we must draw segments let’s keep them on an hourly basis and allow for sustenance breaks when absolutely necessary:)
