Marriage

So much could be better:
The lives of pot plants, nutritious thoughts,
Me as your companion.

Predisposing factors for sadness.
Your smile means everything to me now
But you take mine for a grin.

My smile could be better,
I bought some hyacinths not yet blooming
And I contemplate about us a lot.

Comments on: "Marriage" (23)

  1. Love that closing stanza especially, the hyacinths like the smile, waiting to bloom. Hyacinths to you🙂

  2. This is the time of year for hyacinths…I especially love the blue ones. (I have a friend who always addresses me with “Hiyacynth”…. in her emails🙂 ) I have been thinking of you, Ina, and sending thoughts of good wishes your way❤

    • Hi Hyacynthia🙂
      Thank you very much. We are going through a difficult time now and it is very comforting to know you , and others, think of us xxx❤

  3. Beautiful Ina. Even though you say your smile could be better, you are still managing to smile and some days that is a great task. Thinking of you lots as always and I hope the calendar arrives safely it is on its way! ❤️ Xxx

    • Hi Christine, thank you very much. I am not sure how we will go through the coming time, but I am very grateful to know you are thinking of us. And I am looking forward to the calendar! ❤ xxx
