Change opens doors  to new beginnings….

but the turning of the knob,

the creaking of the hinge,

the stepping over the threshold without tripping

requires tender care of the heart,

attentiveness to each muscle’s


analyses of the physical and mental coordination


to manage the body with respect to another

passing through the same doorway,

in opposite direction;

each entering

-centering within-

the tomorrows

of very different worlds.


It was the slow loss of tenderness when fully aware of the speed of his indifference.

Muah and a Wink


I don’t like this disconnection while you fly.

Come back down to your earth;

Now kiss me here,

and there,

and now here,

and this spot here,



She loved to fly. He preferred to touchdown on the tiniest landing strip – the harder the better.

Peace making


Sending strength.

Sending patience, acceptance, positive.

Standing strong, outstretched arms open.

Void of pressure, of judgement, of rush;

I am earth.

Grounded in generosity, giving, nurture.

Balancing fingertip to wrist to heart, open.

To sunrise, to sunsets, even the greyest of horizons;

Rest love, here.


She sleeps soundly, wrapped in the arms of tenderness and rises, early, to raise a cup to honor the day.

Responds Well


Sensual touch

Seeking sensual touch with (one) safe and sane, mature, intelligent man. Kissing, caresses, passionate exploration, connection. Must have a sense of humor and “a life,” be financially comfortable, confident, able to host, perhaps someone who possesses an appreciation for a woman who enjoys lingerie, heels and less.

Prefer a man who understands the pace, the playfulness, the peace of touch. Men of age welcome.

There really is not enough touch allowed in the world; all air hugs, little kissing, all rushed. Hmm?

I am joyful, tuned in to my body and will want to learn yours. Completely capable of separating the romance label of this post from the reality of my limitations. You should be, too.

Fit, attractive, discreet, educated (and seeking same).

The sound of the buckle – of the unbuckle to be precise – stills her.

We Are


We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business; we are each other’s magnitude and bond.- Gwendolyn Brooks, Pulitzer Prize winner, 1950. (

There’s no substitute for desire.

RMPbuttonflyRMP: A hundred?

RMP: A thousand?

RMP: (pause, wait, think)

RMP: What will it take to cement your beautiful heart to my insatiable heat?

Tman: Just one.



She remembers the lean-in to claim it, foreheads touching after, breathing in his exhaled sigh, feeling the shift in his form and the guttural tone that invaded his voice when he offered his help with those stubborn buttons.
