"Love Snippets" is a series of whimsical poems devoted to the seemingly insignificant moments that make up the substance of a romantic relationship ... the "little" things that are, in all actuality, the frosting on the cake, and the best of what ties two people together.

"Hurry!"
"Hurry, you've gotta see this!"
She yelled at me from a hundred yards down the beach ...
So I ran, barefooted, as fast as I could to where she stood

But when I got there ... nothing!
Just her smile as she nipped her bottom lip
"Gawd yer sexy when you run in the sand," she said
Are you kidding me - there's nothing here??

"Oh, I wouldn't say that I was ... nothing" she answered
She did have a point there
"In fact ... since you ran all this way"
She took handfuls of her knee-length hair and lassoed me with it

Pulling me into the dunes and marsh grasses
She had laid out a blanket, neatly
With a basket of food and wine, wrapped in red plaid
"That's dessert, cutie-pie," she motioned

But what about the main course?
She smiled again, falling back onto the blanket
Right hand grasping my belt
"Me," she winked.

Thank you so much, Debbie, my ignorance of form is quite obvious at times - I appreciate the correction!

Indeed, that is what it's about, though I've had a few such moments in "older" life ... I'm a bit immature and old-fashioned when it comes to romance, and I love to "play" ... it's not the destination when it comes to love, it's the JOURNEY that counts, (if you know what I mean) ... blessings, Friend! :-) <3

Thank you so much, Kim ... I figured MY quotes are implied via the first-person, so why bother with the quotes? I think it worked OK in this instance. So pleased you liked it, Dear Poet! :-) <3

Yes - a man after my own heart ... life is about a series of moments and opportunities, and we have to grab them with both hands when they come, especially such as these! Blessings, my friend! :-)
