Evening's Solitude

In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land

Hon’ble Poet Ma’am taken patent on poeming on final exit- separation - de - partment - dislodgement - cleavage…still the poetic melancholy calorie makes readers calorie oblivious [lolol]…will lead to gain of fatty knowledge and flabby joy by the readers…… thanks sharing… Ms. Nivedita UK 10/10

Ah sweet memories of young love dreaming under closed eyelids...solitude the time it all comes back...love the poem regards
So beautiful and reflective poetry Almedia and yet it leads into the future where dreams are waiting to be fulfilled. The love songs evoke a feeling of tenderness and deep love, even though passionate kisses, can become more companionable. Eloquent and moving writing. 10 love Karin

Reflective... tranquil… and yet, it breaks my heart… passionate kisses ought not ever be gone until the end and the kissers are gone.

Hi Almedia - a lovely evocative poem with just the right mixture of nostalgia and hope. Human love is transient and does wane (my wife and I are the same age as you!) but God's love is constant. When we all get to Heaven we shall all be changed we will mount up with wings like Eagles, we will run and not be weary (when did that last happen) we will walk and not faint. Keep looking up the Lord is surely there waiting for us all! God Bless - John. I'll give it 10!
