Without You

By myself, I flew.

Yet, I never could quite soar

being without you.

  1. Nice butterfly image. Look at those green stripes! Very stylish. Wild butterflies (not in a conservatory) are difficult to photograph — it’s very easy to annoy them — and they usually end up fluttering into the wild blue yonder. Never to be seen again.

  2. Well, I think the poem is great, as always. (I often forget to say this in my comments, by the way, because I take it so much as a given. I apologize for all those slips in the past.)

    It’s a shame that soaring is is not possible, but on the other hand, flying is no small thing. I can’t even do that. On the other hand, I am pretty good at plummeting.

  3. Please excuse the southern in me, but “dang,” that’s some good stuff ya got there! πŸ™‚ It’s so good, I’m going to have to give this to my wife and tell her, “the words just came to me as I was looking at the computer.” I guess I owe you some serious thanks for the consequences of her reading these words!!

    Nah, I’d never steal your words (maybe borrow, maybe invest, maybe sell for huge profits…..sorry, I’m losing my focus.)

    I have to admit it; I like sentimental. This is such a simple message worded so elegantly it truly touched my heart. I’m so proud you can be mushy. It’s a wonderful trait to possess. I should know, I’m mushy! πŸ™‚

  4. Well, nothing wrong with southern gentry! Thank you, dear Jonathan — I’m always glad to serenade you and your lovely wife (I’ll just do so with my eyes averted!). Lol.

    Haha! Thank you for visiting whenever you can and saying such lovely and hilarious things. You make me smile!!

    I’m glad you like mushy! One in awhile it’s fun, but then my mischievous side always fights through after awhile πŸ™‚
