MUSE (Nominated for Week 23-The Perfect Poet Award)


Taking a nap with someone I care for.

Laying on a blanket looking at the stars.

Trips to the farmers market, bags filled with fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers.

Hot chocolate on a cold day.

Pictures of my loved ones.

Long slow kisses.

Warm, loving  hugs.

Kisses on the neck.

Making a campfire.

Whispers in my ear.

The smell of fresh herbs on my hands.

Laying in bed listening to raindrops on the roof.

Snuggling in front of a fireplace with a glass of wine.                                                                                                                  

Making the perfect homemade lasagna served with a simple green salad and chunks of garlic bread.

Spending time with family and remembering what love for them is all about.

Smiling lovingly at loved ones.

Making someone feel special and cared for.

Holding the door for someone.


Reading a great book and losing myself in it.

Paging through a new magazine from back to cover.

Talking to a special friend.

Laughing out loud so hard it hurts.

Giggling at ridiculous things.

Realizing that things are really okay.

Crawling into my bed after a warm bath with a book.

Hearing a favorite song I have forgotten about.

Meeting people who remind me of endless possibilities.

Sharing a funny story.

Being happy for someone.


Feeling grateful for everything in my life.
