Life Bookmarks

You tell a friend you're finally getting to go to New York. Your friend immediately has a special seafood restaurant to tell you you should not miss. It's a special bookmark of his. His wife has her own bookmark: the Guggenheim.

Life bookmarks run the gamut.


Yours may be sunsets. Don't all of us 'collect' favorite sunsets and remember a special favorite which sets off memories and tickles our nostalgia?

Old Hwy US 90 bridge over the Pecos River Canyon as I remember it in my youth when I'd beg to 'turn around and go back'.   We crawled  down that narrow road cut into the canyon, across the bridge and up the other precipice in our Model T in 2nd gear.

So many kinds of life bookmarks!

Music.

Scents.

Mountains.

Gates.

Places.

People.

Clouds and

Mates.

Bridges - ah, yes, bridges, too.

I've known, loved and feared a few.

Both those made of wood or steel

And those which connected people

Known in cyberspace

And those who're 'real'.

It's amazing ~

But ~

No matter what perfume

I dab on

These days ~

I always end up

Smelling like ~

Me!

And it reminds me of ~

You!


______© Nellieanna H. Hay

I Remember You

Purple shadows

Softly inching

‘Cross the floor;

Somewhere a door ajar,

Enticing exploration

Beyond this easy room

Where no gloom invades,

Nor sorrow pervades

Its sanctity.


But nothing stays the same.

No name tells all there is, will be.

You are gone from here

Along with a sense of quiet certainty.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay

Would you be an orchard

And I would be a tree?

Shall limbs entwine;

Shall roots so meet

Beneath the Earth

In sweetest jubilee?


It matters not

The fruits which fell,

The blossoms come and gone.

The link that matters

Is the magic spell

That lingers on and on.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay

Where or When

Beautiful bookmarks

Grace the pages of

The treasure-troves

On the shelves of life.

While sturdy bookends

Help to keep them all

Propped up and ready

To be claimed and fully lived!

pleasant words for pleasant thoughts

meet the waiting ear

less about something deep

more about the life you live

how you greet that life

and in the Twilight are staid

Nellieanna,

Your poetry and musical selections...especially Diana Krall, are the balm I needed today.

The imagery in your poetry is meaningful, relatable and memorable. I always feel comforted after a visit to your writing.

Voted UP and AB. Love, Maria

Nellieanna 4 years ago from TEXAS Author

Maria, dear heart - thank you! - Balm - ah! How wonderful that it felt that way for you! I feel the need for that myself at times, especially when it seems much focus is on all the distress that proliferates & dominates the spotlight wherever one goes online. It's a much needed relief to find a little corner of quietude and encouragement, while still satisfying the need for intellectual stimulation. Finding such a corner online is a treat, indeed. Thank you for visiting, voting & leaving your welcome comment!

Your poetry is exquisite as always, Nellieanna, but these words of yours that I quoted are especially profound and meaningful to me. You are not only a delightful poet, m'dear, but a tantalizing, evocative philosopher as well. Trust me.

Nellieanna 4 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ah, dear Dr. BJ, those are mighty complimentary words coming from you! Thank you. And of course - I always trust you!

At 12, I had several ambitions: astronomer, ballerina, philosopher & femme fatale. I'm not sure which one predominated - in my dreams! But I sometimes notice my tendency toward the philosopher, in a home-grown sort of way. The others require so much more physical technique & precision. hehe

Hugs!

What a beautiful post. I love your using bookmarks as a metaphor of life. Krull is one of my hubby's favorite music artists and it reminds me of him when I hear her songs -- a bookmark of mine. Voted up!

Teaches - thank you. I'm pleased you stopped by and that you appreciate my post and metaphor. I have to admit I don't know Krull, but if you associate his music with Diana Krall's, I have to be impressed.

So I went researching Krull, but now I'm mystified. Alexander Krull, lead singer of Atrocity? Osis Krull? Someone else? Please enlighten me! Ignorance is NOT bliss!

Nell for this you get all three. Voted up, awesome and beautiful. You reminded me of my mom who used to use one special perfume and that lovely aroma always made me feel close to her. When she died I couldn't stop smelling it in the air everywhere. My dad died when I was only ten but he also left a bookmark - Old Spice. This was so terrific, loved and savored every word, great videos . Passing this on. Hugs.

Rasma - Thank you for the votes! How lovely about your Mom's signature perfume. My mom had no sense of smell, so just wasn't interested in perfume, but her overall smell was lovely and harder to pinpoint than a perfume. One face cream (Edna Wallace Hopper's) she used may have contributed to that. Old Spice was a great classic scent -and it's regaining popularity, I hear. My Dad just smelled like his shaving cream (he used a brush and the pot of cream/soap with a straight-edged razor!) - and the fresh sunshiny out of doors, which I adore on a man.

Nellieanna 4 years ago from TEXAS Author

Leslie - ah - I've usually worn fragrance, but in such minute amounts; just a spray or dab on one wrist, rub that on the other wrist, then rub the wrists in the crooks of my elbows. But I've had favorites which I wore exclusively over the years and they literally bring back the whole era in which I wore them and memories of the people close to me then.

I've collected lovely bottles since childhood, so save have the remains of my fragrances in their bottles - though they're not what they once were, aroma-wise!

The one pictured in the hub is my all-time favorite which became impossible to find in this country - Nina Ricci's 'Fille d'Eve'. A college friend gave me a small bottle shaped like an apple leaf, which got me hooked & I wore only that fragrance for years, till suddenly the only Ricci fragrance one could find was 'L'Air Du Temps' which I disliked mostly for that reason. But one Christmas, Neiman's featured a very special limited-edition presentation of classic fragrances in their most classic bottles, Fille d'Eve among them, in its classic Lalique apple-shaped bottle, as pictured. They were shamefully over-priced but I bought the only two bottles they had; used one up & gave its bottle to a dear friend as a gift; still have the other with quite a bit of the perfume in it but the scent has aged a but too much to wear. (nothing worse than older ladies in stale perfumes!!) I sniff it from time to time, just to reminisce. It's a definite bookmark, anyway. I do seem to just smell like me, with a mixture of Ivory soap, the natural emollients to keep my face from falling off and a tiny dab of perfume, applied only just after a shower. Retouching begins to smell like old ladies with stale perfume one passes in the grocery store aisles. Shudder. haha.

Anyway, it really is amazing the things that stand out as bookmarks; & after the number of years I've been collecting them, it can get rather crowded with 'em.

Marlene - I love that my words convey my personal presence. Thank you for that lovely compliment. Many of my poems are from a lifetime of prolific writing. But both the ones you mention were written as I was making this hub the last day of November.

I'm also thrilled that you came across my hubpages. Hope you'll find it fun to return again. I snuck a peek at your page and see many inviting titles!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 4 years ago from TEXAS Author

Sheila - No, I wouldn't laugh at all! Your mom's fragrance favorite brings back vivid memories. I was born & grew up for 10 or so years in Del Rio, on the Mexican border. Famous imported designer perfume purchased 'over the river' was less expensive than in the States because it came into Mexico duty-free. Dad often gave us three daughters perfume for Christmas from over there and "Tabu" was one of his choices, though more for my older sisters. But I have an intense 'fragrance memory' by which I can literally smell fragrances 'in my head' and can still remember Tabu! Others also by Dana were '20 Carat Gold' - with actual gold fleck floating in it and 'Platine' with actual platinum flecks. I usually got one of those, especially 'Platine', which was the lightest of them. All of them are 'vintage' fragrances now.

As you say - so many bookmarks and memories!

Thanks for sharing this one of yours!

The most special bookmark in my life is definitely music. I recently started writing poems in English, so I hope I will get better at it. Of course me being ambitious, I find fun in everything and sometimes easily get bored of it, but other times I'm really patient and hard working to get to the top in my field. Really like the hub and the whole symbolism of the bookmarks!

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Colin, dear friend - what a lovely compliment. If my writings are hanging on the Louvre that is your heart and mind, I'm greatly honored!

I'm pleased that you like my title. What better compliment than that you'd like to have thought of it yourself! Thank you!

I can visualize your stars over your lake! What a sight it must be!

I'm not at the ranch, but out there, there's no light pollution except competition from the moon on moonlit nights. The stars on a clear night are incredible - and nights are almost always clear there! You feel actually a part of the Milky Way, it's so surrounding and thick. All the other stars, galaxies, constellations, and planets are incredibly bright and clear against black velvet space, even to the naked eye. But, alas - there's no surface water on the entire 10 sq. miles except in a big holding tank & in puddles briefly after a rain & before it all rushes down the canyons and empties into the Rio Grande.

But I'm here in Dallas, 500 miles from the ranch. It's been more like spring here all week, too, but tomorrow we're forecast our coldest day yet, with an Arctic blast of dry air, without enough moisture to accomplish much to alleviate the drought. If there are any snowflakes in it, they'll be few and will be absorbed before they can hit the ground, the weather soothsayers say. :-) Well - I'm ready for some consistent weather and it's supposed to be wintry, for goodness' sake! We've been bouncing from relative extremes for months now!

If there were a way

for me to write just say I wanna !

Oh I would write a poem

just like Nellieanna

The sweetest penning of words

rolling of my tongue

Keeping my friends so alive

keeping all of our hearts young

But then .....there can only be one lady

that shakes the barley

And brings all men to thier knees

and away from their harley

Except the man called ahorseback

he is the most of the men

Who bow down to nellieanna

cause she is my friend

What a beautiful display of bookmarks, memories and crushed roses as bookmarks work well to. I have many bookmarks in my life and I am thankful to have kept most of them in memory. Life is all about progression to the next chapter, mine seem to be every five years a change happens in mine.

Your bookmarks are stunning, to think that we can remember people from a simple scent like cologne or perfume. I suppose I would be remembered for Old Spice and Brut. Now after seeing Brad Pitt promoting Chanel #5 I just may go out and buy some if I can afford it:0) Hugs from me to you my sweet poet.


lovedoctor926 3 years ago

Hi Nellieanna, I'm here revisiting again. I love your collection of bookmarks especially the perfume. Interesting how you always end up smelling like you, but a particular smell always reminds you of someone. I love sunsets & unicorns too. Thanks for stopping by to check out my hubs. I will be back again. Merry Christmas.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Thank you, Ken, my dear friend! Yes, crushed roses are valuable bookmarks. Memories abide in them. You've made me remember some of my own!

Save your money, though. No 5 is strictly a woman's scent. The ad is confusing. It's the first time in its long history (since the 1920s) it's been advertised by a guy. They have Brad hawking it in hopes that it will make guys want to rush out and buy it for their gals ,- either or both of them. hehe - You see, there's a subtle mixed message in the ad: - - is it blonde Jennifer or brunette Angelina reminding him of the fragrance?

You might recall that No 5 was 'all' Marilyn Monroe wore to bed? I've worn it, but it's different these days, a bit too pungent.

Chanel makes some men's fragrances, too; but, in my opinion, -- there's nothing more appealing on a man than the lingering aromas of fresh air and sunshine! (Or Old Spice or Brut. ;-)

Big hugs, m'dear. Thank you for lovely comments!!

lol I was commenting on something you mentioned to Ken about light pollution. No rhetoric, just thinking some concept over outloud and finding it ridiculous grammatically.

P.S. Hi back


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

:-)

". . .the lingering aromas of fresh air and sunshine" translates as 'light pollution'?

Actually when I do refer to light pollution, it is to its absence at the ranch, where there is literally NO man-made ground light to compete with the Milky Way and an amazing night sky of lights from stars and galaxies visible even to the naked eye without any interference of electric lights in the immediate vicinity 'polluting'(undermining the real essence of) the actual natural view.


Jaggedfrost profile image

Jaggedfrost 3 years ago

Then would we call it interference or obfuscation rather then pollution. To most it wouldn't amuse but to a wordsmith, it does. Funny that.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Nellieanna 1 second ago from TEXAS Hub Author

Obfuscation may surely be more accurate, although it has a secondary meaning of "bewilder", which, to me, is more personal than is applicable to light interference. In fact, using it to explain that situation would probably obfuscate the general reader, rather than inLIGHTen him!

In any case, the word would probably be less easily interpreted by the majority of folks to whom one would likely be explaining the condition. If being understood matters to one, that is surely a consideration. In fact, "light pollution" is often applied by astronomers and other scientific observers of night-time sky phenomena to describe artificial ground light interference, which possibly places it as a term in the position of being generally familiar and accurately understood as it's applied to it for benefit of layfolks.

So perhaps it depends on whether one prefers one's meaning being generally understood or fastidiously fine-tuned and esoteric, - but generally obscure "out there"; ie: practically talking to oneself.

'Interference' would work as an alternate compromise.

I'm a stickler for fine-tuning, but will probably continue to refer to it as 'light pollution' without concern for my wordsmith image! ;-)

(Its amusement potential is fairly neutral to me, actually.)

By the way - I was up all Thursday, Thursday night, Friday and now am an hour into Saturday with only a couple of cat-naps, and a bunch of activity during that period. So I'll be closing up here momentarily.


Jaggedfrost profile image

Jaggedfrost 3 years ago

My poor Lady, that is horrid for you to do to yourself. Take you to your bead and pray no light pollution seep into your body. That would be horrid would it not. People do terrible things to our language and then complain when they are not understood. On terms of a personal complaint, Astronomers really seldom care what anyone but their colleges or NORAD think of their use of language so I would put them in the language polluters category.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 3 years ago from TEXAS Author

Nothing horrid involved, dear friend, but thank you for the concern. I'm a deliberate, determined & somewhat driven lady, not a poor one. Sleeping & its timing are conscious choices.

Extending my productive hours into 'normal' sleep-times is a long-term habit since I was a kid. Sleeping in my baby-youth bed with the high sides, I snuck books & a little battery-operated lantern under the covers for pursuit after I was tucked in. I've always enjoyed sleep & do it well, but at times, I resent wasting all that time being unconscious, especially if I'm on a project & functioning at top mode.

I realize that I shouldn't practice it now, & do so less often. I still bounce back well, but it's not on an increasing scale.

At the same time, I've NO problem whatsoever sleeping. When I'm on a project, my holdups are noticing the time, finding a stopping place, deciding on it & lying down. The moment I stop & lie down, there's no light, noise, fretting over undone or to-be done things, nor anything else, which prevent my sound sleep, and that's whether or not it's the 'normal' amount & timing of sleeping or not. Being able to shift gears & get quality sleep, whatever its quantity or setting, is among my secrets of productivity & of longevity, in fact. Fact is, during sleep, many unsolved glitches are solved without loss of that state of being.

If or when my effectiveness & efficiency lessened while marathoning, though, I'd determine that the time to stop & go to bed immediately. But often, they improve during those marathon sessions, though I may not be as responsive to extraneous distractions & demands during those times. Therein, lies possibility of danger. I'm 'all about' recognizing & preventing preventable problems. But an advantage of my present monastery-like life-style is ample opportunity to avoid extraneous distractions! An earlier advantage of the use of late-hours for personal productivity when NOT in a monk-like life situation was that other distractions were NOT up and about during those wee hours, - which may have contributed to my habit of using those hours. Now I can use ALL the hours productively for chosen pursuits, which always do include people with whom I interact, including you. My automatic response is to delay my solitary pursuits for people almost every time & any time, so long as it has any potency. I am 'not about' pursuit of futility, though. Which means that, for me, further discussion of light pollution would become; plus the potent project I AM pursuing up into the nights does beckon & I do respond!

Have a good weekend, - & A Merry Christmas, Kacey!

(I got good hours of sleep when I went to bed earlier and I'm fresh as a daisy, eating my morning fruit, & am keyed for productive action. Whoo-hoo! ;-)
