Escaping this that

Belongs to a wayward soul

Oft searching for Home.

Illusions

mirror_mask_3_by_suede631-d4wepc2

Illusions shatter
Images are just that.

Who am I behind the projection
Of a desire, a need
Have I become a parody of
A self, seeking expression.

Am I more
Will I disappoint
Do these doubts reveal
A self fearful, unrealised.

Illusions vanish
Reality beckons.

A self contented
Flowing with the river
Floating, relishing
The rush of life water

Each moment complete
Each moment exquisite
Each moment a wonder
A reality that just is.

– FlorenceT

Talking dirty (A) Ageing

Talking dirty? To put this in context, see the first post in this series of how this began.

Ageing… well, I can’t choose so here are two amazing quotes… do you wonder why the book from which these quotes were extracted is titled “Talking Dirty”? Not exactly controversial, is it…?

 

ageingThe age of a woman doesn’t mean a thing.  The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.           Ralph Waldo Emerson, American writer

 

 

thankfulWhen a woman in love reaches a  certain age, though her heart may cease to sing, her eyes remain veiled with gratitude.           Collete (Sidonie-Gabrielle), French writer

 

 

And here is Mae West talking dirty about love.

While we’re on the topic of ‘Woman’…
