My Wish

Good morning to you
On this lovely day
Independence is the word
If i may say
I wish i was there
To share with you
A kiss on your cheek
And say how do you do
Take you to lunch
Spend the day
In the warm sunshine
The American way
In the evening we will fish
As hunter gatherers do
Play some music 
A dance for two
Into the night
As the owls hoot
Skinny dipping
In our birthday suits
Dried and refreshed
A nightcap for two
As we lie on the bed
Just me and you
But the toll of the day
Tires us so
With your head on my chest
We fall into dreamy flow

James, I have "tagged" you with a new "Haunted Poets" game initiated by John Loving. I hope you'll respond. My tag poem is "Dream of Death." Love you (but regrettably been very busy), Carolyn

The 5th stanza is genius. It's comedy, descriptive, and concise.

And I thought Independence day was about grilling in the backyard, fireworks, throwing back a few brews... but this seems far less stressful. I like it! Thanks again, James... ~<><

Well highlander, you have dreamed the pleasing side of democracy. And celebration is an American way... Catch the friendship that I'm blowing your way on this our Independence Day. And thanks for thinking about us. Lovingly, Dane

What a beautifully romantic "wish" from your precious heart, James. This sounds like the perfect way to spend Independence Day in the comfort of a loving partner. Dancing to music is such a romantic activity. It recalls lines from a poem I've loved since high school -- "pulse nigh to pulse and breath to breath." This type of intimacy is a treasure to find. Wonderful write, James! Love you, Carolyn
