Sunday Writing Prompt – July 2, 2017: Love Flowers

I love flowers, and luckily for me Hubby buys them for no apparent reason, just the thought that I might like some.

This is the prompt this week:

It’s a glorious day, so I thought I’d pay you a visit. Not that I need an excuse you understand, just that I want to be with you, to share the day, the sun, the moment.
You love flowers. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple posy of daisies and buttercups from the fields and hedgerows, or a master bouquet wrapped in ribbon and cellophane costing the earth, both are received with the same enthusiasm and pleasure.
It’s one of the many things I love about you.

I decided on roses, bluebells and poppies, sheltered by a sprig of laurel as I lay them before you.
You are forever in sleep My Love, whereas I am dependent on others until my bones mend.
A drowsy bee passes by and I can sense your smile. Hoping he will alight on my offering,  my heart swells at the thought, and when he does, I laugh.
I miss you so very much.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    How lovely and heartfelt Di! This is sensitive and wistful, yet quietly accepting, and even – hmmm – soulful. I like how you’ve written something that hints at the depths, and leaves just enough “missing” for us to consider and contemplate – loss and longing, and yet, a simple pleasure – the ending, the last few lines – absolutely gorgeous. Truly a wonderful post – thanks for playing the Sunday writing prompt 🙂
