Isn't It Romantic

Updated on June 11, 2014


Heady scent of new mown hay,

Glittered by a glowing harvest moon.

Excites, intoxicates. awakes,

~ As her heart quakes.

Young passion's bloom,

Rising to attention

Out of languorous, luminous

Indian summer day.

Moments filled with

Shimmering, enclosing, wondrous

Romantic tension, ~

Never to be forgotten.

Isn't It Romantic - from "Sabrina" with Audrey Hepburn

Let's run away,

Hide from all else

But each other -

To talk and hug,

To Be

In odd, unique

Harmony ~

Beyond the din.

"Baby", he whispers,

Almost inaudibly

So as to not offend -

"I want you,

Can you understand?"

Of course I can!

It hovers in the air,

Fills it everywhere,

Fills me ~

A deluge,

A refuge.


To share,

To dare to be.

Undercurrents run deep,

Both pristine and tarnished.


Cloud the clearest sky

Where you and I

Have stood





Yet here we are this day

So good together!

So warm together.

Your heart has

Many layers,

Has been in

Many lairs,

And laid a few.

If I could see you

Without them,

It might discomfort you

If you need them more.

Yet more would be

To be free to love


It is the best reward.

Your nearness

Even when apart

Feels like love to me.

Distance dissolves

When the heart

Touches another's heartstrings.

Whispering love-words

Not wasted

On the breeze and trees.

They leapt to where you are;

They tasted

Your essence.

There you are!

Nestling here

In my inner ear!

______© Nellieanna H. Hay

For you


You said, -

Words meant for

Only you,

For no one else,

Just you.

Will these do?

Or must I

Dissect my

Heart and soul,

Lay down

My inmost


For your view?

I need to be


Do you ~ ~

Perceive me?

Sunbeams still seek

Your satin cheek

To kiss.

Smiles still chase

The gloom

From an empty room

Like this.

A playful breeze 

Still looks for

Silver hair to tease.

And in your heart

There's still a place

For powerful yearnings

And I am still here

To fill them.

My Love - Diana Krall

The comfort in it is

I have been this way before,

Experienced momentum felt

As standing still,

Inertia felt

As dynamic pulse,

Been drawn from out

The bowels of life,

Insight, deepened

'Neath the surface,

Dissolving superficials,

Leaving comfort as the keynote

Throughout each overture,

Drawing it together,

Yet, apart.

______© Nellieanna H. Hay

When I reach into

My memory trove

of all my love

And find

An image,

Scent or

Sound ~

It's always yours.

You know who

You are.

And so do I.

I may find new love -

Or I may not.

And either way is good ~

Because of you.
