Haiku: Allow

I want all the time,
all that heaven will allow.
Courtesy Springsteen.


That's what immediately popped into my head when I saw the prompt from One Single Impression. It's from his Tunnel of Love album. [Of course, I know it's not an "album," that it's a "CD," but I can't just not use the word "album." In my defense, it was the album that I purchased way back in '87.]

But there is someone out there I adore more than Springsteen. [Hard to believe, but true.]

Allow Me the Pleasure
Allowing entry
to a vulnerable me?
From the day "I do."

The "I do" is, I think, the most significant part.. where you permit "yourself" to "allow".. Once done with, we probably grasp and perceive a whole lot more than we initially contemplate.. and in a positive, enriching way, I suppose..

I especially like the last one ... because it is so true.

You and The Boss make a nice team. I am tickled by these. How beautiful.

Hey Patois, I enjoyed your poetry today. I am not a Springsteen fan at all but 'Jump' is embedded somewhere in my brain.

I like your second, yes we do allow ourselves to be very vulnerable with those words and the ring.
Some day I will write about the ring I lost in a lake while swiming. I have barely looked back on that. No longer vulnerable, but I did try it for a while before the ring thing.
..
The whole blogging world knows I did it all over again with Mrs. Jim, she is a keeper. I treasure my ring from the early 70's. It has flowers etched completely around.

Nicely done on both counts, though the second was the best.

Oh, oh, oh! I love both of them. The 2nd one really speaks to me. That's how I think about hubby & me, too.

Rides to Heaven on a Gyroscope

A couple of months ago, I saw a client I hadn't seen for a number of months. Like more than a dozen people have in the recent past, she ...
