My Wife

I would take cute over profound, any-day; good feeling-full over meaningful – God over science, and my wife when it comes to dinner; I will take thick over thinner, when it comes to gravy and mashed potatoes; God over politics, when it comes to getting along...my wife's opinion when it comes to right and wrong; Beauty wins hands-down, when it comes to images and lyrical-sounds; God on all my paths and grounds as opposed to stone saints and preaching clowns – my wife's love, over a world of wealth; without love, nothing of true value, nor health –

Thank you, Garima; yes, she is...and I, obviously, dearly of her. Without her, there would be no poetry, less an awareness of God's beauty and love...and cynicism toward man, especially politicians, that would have my soul vomiting the day long. May Putin and the Biden administration rot in hell, together, for all eternity!

"wife's love, over a world of wealth; without love, nothing'......So true. For a married man the partner's love and God's love are the first priorities. One who lays the right priority on the right things is a happy man.... ! So meaningful, Joe

Thank you, Valsa; for sure! I mean, if one does not feel this way about his or her mate...why on earth get married and trust the significant other to help raise something so priceless as children!?

Thank you, Anil; if you have not read any of Doumette's works, his "Life After Death," is a phenomenal read.
