A to Z Theme 2016

For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.

In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Thrill ( #atozchallenge )

Thrill of Love

When it's love the thrill is never gone.
 Subdued perhaps,
but still simmering somewhere within
waiting to be unleashed unexpectant.  

 Early on in a relationship there can be so many thrilling moments,
some ascribed to love while others are pure physical exhilaration.  
It's all good when it's love.
 The thrill of the moment or the building thrill of anticipation.

 As we think about our loved one when apart from them,
 we may be infused with an energy that fuels us deep within.
 Get home.  Get back to the one I love.
 I can hardly wait.  My lover.  My dearest friend.

The passionate thrill of seeing my love
 in the distance with a smiling face.
 Two of us beaming,
drawn toward that special moment of the thrilling embrace.

         How do you feel when reunited with the one you love?   Do you think about loved ones when away from them?

  1. I loved this the Romantic Arlee.
    It was a pleasure to read.


  2. Beautiful poem! When my love gets home on Thursday I'm all grins and so excited to see him. When he's gone, I think about him constantly. He's my first thought when I wake up and my last thought b/f I go to sleep and if I luck out, I dream about him too.

  3. When my beloved gets home from work, my heart still leaps. When I hear his voice on the phone, I smile every time.

  4. It's what this old romantic lives for...

  5. I thank you all for your comments.
