Each of the Five

What rose does not more beautiful appear after your eyes have gazed on it so long? The lark I now mellifluously hear because you drew attention to its song. The crisp aroma of dawn's petrichor becomes acute as we walk hand in hand. The taste of coffee pleases all the more, partaking as we hunt shells in the sand. To touch your face sends every neuron humming, with you my sensors fire every minute. Your heart and mine in one accord are drumming; Our house is home because your love dwells in it. You heighten every sense, each of the five; With you beside me, life is more alive. Written 29 Jul 2022

"House is home because love dwells in it." I broke down your thoughts, because it holds so much truth. In today's world, there's not agape love within the home. So sad indeed. For those that are able to experience unconditional love- my heart rejoices. I can honestly say, I'm blessed beyond measure. This is beautiful, tender and uplifting, all at the same time. Many wonderful blessings to you and yours, my dear sweet friend. :) Hugs, Brandy

Hi John what a wonderful write. The love felt in a home is special, I echo your poetic thoughts, for without him beside me when i experienced a crisis a few months ago, his constant presence a candle bringing me back from a dark and distant place. He held my hand, my life was his and his was mine, he was so scared , but I came back home, our home so warm, so lovingly alive. May you live and love each other always so touching every sense heightened, each of the five. Blessings and hugs JP.

This is so expressive of the love you share with your wonderful wife, I especially like the lines of the lark and 'our house is home because your love dwells in it' - it is so true how our senses grow and bloom from being nurtured, another exquisite write!
