‘Do you remember

your earliest cognizance?’

She asked him as he stared at

the way her body melted into his

bed. Crawling into her embrace, he

shook his head yes. ‘You were the

beginning of my consciousness,

you are the end to all of

my sentences.’

  3. My, how I feel all the time, love personified in words, beautiful. Inspired my tanka:

    I have a true love
    forty-six years married bliss
    children three a plus
    my heart beats for wife them too
    world I love heart cries in pain

    Take care, best wishes to you and your kin,

  8. Lovely. But those are words I wouldn’t trust, “You were the

    beginning of my consciousness.” I guess I am skeptical at heart. But I always enjoy your writing.
