marriage, romance, travel, vacation,
by Rhonda Johnson-Saunders |
A gondola floats o’er romantic tides
as you and I caress Venetian skies
laced deftly in exalted stars applied
by brushes dipped in hues of lover’s eyes.
A kiss beneath Rialto Bridge in spring
feels like our first so many years ago.
On every breeze, O Sole Mio sings
a serenade in city lights aglow.
This hope of love rekindled miles from home,
could be our chance to dream and reminisce.
Enlightened by a full moon’s wink, we’d roam
down Grand Canal in gleaming nights of bliss.
Our renaissance, a second honeymoon -
to Venice, we could not escape too soon.

beauty, holiday, i miss you, love, passion, vacation, valentines day,
It's near midnight, whilst we moonlight walk
Palm tree lined fairway, Crickets singing
Hands clenched in loving vacationed talk
Hearts in wanting pound, Batangas is bringing
We, she and I, now amidst our intending lock
Serenity is the scene blessed by lunar watch
So late, but joyous we, soon our lips are speaking
Clouds now hover as we witness natures rain
Our apartment is distant, we welcome given
Through broken lunar light, stroking her mane
My hands in taken then, sensuously they're driven
Kiss me quiet is whispered, hearts now in reign
Walking, slowly walking, absorbing to us this night
Hearts in touching pound, Batangas has brought
by elizabeth wesley |
Blinded by a burning sun
Spellbound by the moon;
Beguiled by your tender kiss
Mesmerized too soon.
You looked at me and cast your spell
You took my breath away;
I thought that I could never live
If you didn't come each day.
In haste these moments come to be
In haste they soon will pass;
For passions then that filled my soul
Convert to splintered glass.
The flame that once burned in my heart
Is now a fading ember;
And when I look at you once more
That flame I can't remember.
Was on vacation, missed you all! :)

I am bored with math.
Two plus two always equals four.
Why can't it equal an ice cream cone
Or a trip to the candy store?
Four plus four always equals eight-
Never a video game,
Or a Disneyland vacation.
No, the answer's e'er the same!
One times one always equals one.
Where's the fun in that?
I'd love to see the answer be
A brand new baseball bat!

beach, romance, vacation,
Join me in paradise
jostled loose from my dreams.
Journey to barefoot sands.
Jewels of turquoise gleam,
jaunting free in warm waves.
jogs memories of love.

lost love, youth,
Now I reach back into the past
to my first love
but not my last.
I hear his voice still in my brain.
So many fragments of the past remain.
I see the one I loved so true
on the highway in my rearview.
I'm on vacation,
from the sorrows of today.
We laughed and cried so much back then.
We shared smiles.
We kissed and lingered for a while.
He kissed my hand and looked into my eyes.
I felt his heartbeat.
He heard my sighs.
We were so young then and free.
He was himself and I was me.

I know I'm alive
when I find the sky is blue,
when I find the birds are flying over the sky,
when the spring wind touches me lovingly,
when the scorching sun of summer spreads the scent of ripen jackfruits,
when the umbrella comes with my beloved under the seasonal rain drops
I know I'm alive and fall in love
when you come back to me after Eid vacation
and make me wait on the bank of Buriganga river

fun, love, nonsense, silly, tree, vacation,
Fell in love with a coconut
The tree stood tall outside my hut
Love sublime at first sight
I thought I‘d have a bite
Lost both front teeth right on the spot

I want nothing more
Than to hear you speak
If not daily
Then once a week
On the phone
Or face to face
I just want
to hear you say
Hey how are you?
I've missed you so much!
What have you been up to?
Shall we grab lunch?
It would mean a great deal
As I have missed so much
And I tried to reach out
But I've not had much luck
I got so sad
About this whole situation
I'm taking myself
Off on a vacation
But I'd so much prefer
To be somewhere with you
Let's walk in the park
And go to the zoo
So if you're reading this
I hope you know
There's a you shaped whole
Left in my soul.

happiness, love, marriage, meaningful, river, romantic love, vacation,
The vacation scenes were beautiful
sailing on the waters, looking at scenes
the two gathered together
looking at each other
as whispering winds, waives of waters
not to be bothered
Love is so genuine
the touching of arms
the smiles everlasting
eyes are so bright
as the night falls
entering into the daylight.

celebration, joy, moon, romance, summer, sunshine, vacation,
Varicolored smoke bombs, at a three generation celebration,
Splendors, rest and excitement, on a sun drenched vacation,
A heart bursting with song, love following wherever you go;
And the return to raptures, beneath a multicolored rainbow!
Fragrant flowers opening wide, their petals to gold summer,
And a moonlit tango enchantment, on ebony edges of slumber.

Last week featured poetic Drama
Like living at home with your momma
Perhaps taken vacation
So watch your P’s, your Q’s and comma
Jack’s Sprat had the nastiest critic
Mary said, “You just better quit it!”
Jack said, “I may as well split!”
Mary’s mad enough to spit
Soup is family, don’t you get it!!!!
So be kind to your critics
Often times they don’t get it
Write loving features
Appease mad creatures
Write of love or forget it
For and in honor of Carol Brown
And contest: Write it for yourself

Chairs lined with stripes,
green and white,
became ski jump ramps
for feelings, innocent and pure,
taking off from the edge
hoping to defy the gravity of fears.
Only a lucky few made it,
others turned into tears
landing on the grass of Green Park
as the warm air was getting dark.

Mother Ocean please
Send me waves of such beauty

Dedicated to my Dad on Father's Day 2013
The man who introduced me to the ocean and educated me about it and gave me reason to love appreciate and respect it.

feelings, for her, home, love, sad love, summer, vacation,
A summer love, so riant and so warm
Underneath the rays of gold
Though covered with sudor, I want to be around your arms
Forever is nothing but what I hold
And yes, it was but summer
Goodbyes are kept until we're home again
We spent the season out of the boundary
But it wasn't like what I remembered
And so I yearned for home, refrain
The way back home is my quandary

adventure, beach, dream, retirement, sea, summer, vacation,
The seaside...now there is a place I like to be,
To get away from the city the neighbours and some family,
To lay on the beach without a care at all,
Watching people swimming, sunbathing or just playing with a ball,
At the seaside you can eat fish and chips,
Or you can simply gaze at the distant ships,
Listening to the rocks crackle in the ebb and flow,
Of the blue crisp ocean going to and fro,
The cool sea breeze and Cornish ice cream,
Will always be with me in a seaside dream,
Yeah I really love to be by the coast,
And I hate going home the most,
So one day I will make the move and live by the sea,
Until I get old and life’s had enough of me.

funny, marriage, vacation,
Just a honeymoon beach vacation,
a fine nuptial love celebration;
we arrived a night early,
we would find hotel surely:
“No rooms” was the sad proclamation.
“An hour away you might find one.”
They were right for we only found…NONE!!
We got off beaten path.
too tired then to laugh,
looked for a place “mom and pop” run.
Well, it must have been close to midnight,
exhausted the lady and her knight;
we found Motel Warwick,
a guest house illicit,
and christened our honeymoon site.

I need a vacation she said
From all of this playing in bed
And she let him know
There’s more to love’s glow
By moving on sofa instead

analogy, beach, my child, son, summer, vacation,
He comes, a seaside golem,
walking like Frankenstein’s monster
because sand has filled the crack in his
behind, and his feet are shod in at least
two pounds of beach.
He carries his pail and shovel.
“Mommy, I have fun!” he chirps.
And I love him in spite of his sandy behind,
in spite of the leaden feet
and the grit in his hair,
in spite of the fact that I know who’ll be
removing the sand.
I love him because he’s my golem,
and, well, he had fun.
