Tender Tinder

Tender Tinder

So recently, and yet a time agone,
Our tender tinder nestled, unremarked.
By flinty sense, conclusions seemed forgone…
But no-- a glint of something else was sparked.

With Winter all around us growing colder
To perigee of Solstice in December…
How lowly did it linger small and smolder,
While we ignored the light within the ember?

And then… a wind upon our kindling blew.
Recurling wafts of passion rose like smoke,
Incensing us… Igniting what we knew…
And from that ash, bright tongues of fire spoke…

Our flaming hearts are hearths that burn and beat;
My Sweet, the mountains melt before our heat.

Reading is subjective - I took your poem also as describing the quick and strong emotional reaction against IOC decision not to permit US flag at games... Nice job, Saber.

Your poem embodied the spirit of romanticism it's captivating, brilliant, daring and dissolute.

Relieved to hear about your boat.


Though you shouldn't go out in skirts like that... nasty.

Wow. Thanks, Victoria, truly.

But "dissolute?"


How about wanton?

Speaking of boats did you ever hear the song by Judy Garland entitled, "Make Believe/Who Cares If My Boat Goes Upstream" from the album, "Till the Clouds Roll By?"

If you don't have it you should.
