Once Loved
The sun split the morning darkness over the Bayou and peeked into our bedroom, awakening me. I left our bed and opened the French doors, the fragrance of the morning air embraced me in your absence. I took my coffee on the veranda, I looked about the spring of life, abundant around me and I felt the stir. The honeysuckles, azaleas, wisteria and, of course, roses were in full bloom.

The bouquet created a heady aroma that tempts ladybugs and hummingbirds into a delicate dance for a petaled kiss. I miss you so, my darling, but feel your presence all around me, within me.

The hot morning and sultry humidity left a glisten of moisture on my skin, like a soft kiss, your kiss. I heard the bayou lap gently against the jetty, awakening all to her embrace with a rhythm not unlike your touch, as you would stroke me, easing my body into the day with your love.

Each too short day was filled with passion before you left, but not before you gave me the greatest gift. This gift of life so dear, so treasured. It is life, to be loved. 

Some things, once loved become ours, once loved become us.

  1. Muffy, this was beautiful. I could feel, taste, smell, and enjoy all of the details you put into this. I was embraced by the world that your words created. What a wonderful treat.

  2. This is a soothing, most beautiful expression of love. I demand others appreciate attention each detail of this romantic morning in the South. How could you bring all my expressions of romance crumbling to look up to your talented expression for love in your descriptions. I can only hope to improve from your example.

I was born when we kissed; I died when we parted. I lived in your embrace while we loved..........
