Do you trust me? Will you
take my hand and let me
lead the way to a place
transcending the boundaries
of our reality? Let us get
lost in the tranquility –
dancing to the majesty of
the surroundings, feeling the
rhythm vibrate through our
bones. For as long as our
hearts desire, this is our
destination. For time is
but a memory. Its existence
leaves no trace on the path
where we tread. There is
only you, me, and the
intensity of our belonging
to each other.

        Ahh Lauren, my laptop is poorly too. There is a peace here, as I’m only able to get online through my phone. I think it’s a sign 🀘 πŸ˜˜πŸ’—πŸ˜Š And you just reminded me, I have emojis on here πŸ˜„ stopping now… I know you’re chuckling. Hugs and much love for you. Xxx πŸ’•

    1. I had to read this again to understand your first perspective and you’re right. I never thought of it like that, which is the beauty of poetry and its various interpretations. Thanks for sharing, Pam, and for your kind words. xo

      1. I read a quote recently that once an author/poet releases her work, it no longer belongs to her. It belongs to the reader. Poetry in particular is ingested by the reader and digested in the way that suits her sensibilities. πŸ™‚

    1. Aww, thanks so much, Michelle. I’m honored you enjoyed this enough to read it several times. πŸ™‚ Lots of love and big hugs right back to you, too, my dear friend. And wishing you a relaxing weekend! ❀🌷😊

      1. So far it has been fantastic. We had a community potluck last night at the neighborhood clubhouse! Lots of fun and delicious food, Today, football on TV. Tomorrow, I plan to relax and get ready for the coming week. Hope yours is equally nice. β€οΈπŸ€—β€οΈ

  1. Wow! Lauren, this is beautiful and I have tears reading this … your poem transcends the earthly realms to the upper echelons of love and its utter independence of anything else… reminds me of John Donne and his love poetry. Wonderful and a joy to read! Hugs xx 🌸🌺🌻

    1. Aww, Annika, thanks so much for your beautiful comment that puts a smile on my face and warms my heart. Thanks also for playing catch-up with my posts. I’m so far behind now with everything else going on. Anyway, take good care, my friend. Hugs and love back to you! ❀❀❀

  2. I’m feeling the love from your words Lauren. I particularly loved: “For time is but a memory. Its existence
    leaves no trace on the path where we tread.” So true! ❀

    1. Again, Don, you’ve almost brought me to happy tears with your lovely and kind words. So thank you again. During this break, I’ve been challenging myself with writing personal essays/short stories. So I haven’t written any poems lately, but I hope I still can in the future. There’s just not enough time to write all that our minds hold. Sending love and hugs for a blessed Christmas!

      1. Lauren, I know only too well the constraints of time most writers are challenged with, myself included. I work full time, and then some, have a long commute to and from the workplace, am single and thus do all the usual chores in and out of home…just to name a fragment of my daily living.

        Still, as we can, we are moved to write for the joy of writing and touching the heart, mind, soul, and lives of those who so engage what we share. It is a miracle of life passion that envelopes the life experience with such painstaking, creative spirit, and the joy of the human response.

  3. I clicked the control key and apparently that is part of a shortcut that send my unfinished response hurtling into cycberspace!

    Lauren, may you and your loved ones know the profound sense of love and sharing, giving and expressing in ways that only the family unit can this Christmas and always. Be blessed and thank you, thank you eternally for your inspiration, enthusiasm and love of life the ever transcends through your writings. Hugs always.

    1. I’ve done that before, too, Don…and thank you for your beautiful wishes, my friend. Sending holiday hugs back to you, and may you find peace and love during this holiday season and throughout the new year where possibilities, adventure, and opportunities await for us to greet them.

I appreciate your thoughts!
