Today’s prompt: sugar, certificate, golf

Another episode with America’s Senior (blog) Sweethearts…♥

Husband took up golf last year, but

Not in a serious way…he’s no addict.

So I was surprised when he came in 

Holding a piece of paper with a gold

Seal on it… “What’s this?” I ask.

“A certificate,” he says.

I shrug, make a smiley-frown, thinking

There was probably a competition I’ve

Forgotten about… “No trophy, Sugar?”

“Read it,” he says.

It says he’s certified to be a coach…how

Did that happen, I’m wondering, not

Showing the enthusiasm he was expecting.

“You’re qualified to be a coach?  That

 Happened quick…”

“Yep, I took to golf like a duck to water.”

He’s a little too proud for my liking.

“Well, what does this mean, exactly…

What does it entail?  Will you be

Gone every weekend, now?”

“No, not every one…takes time to get

Referrals, people who want a coach.”

I’m getting a sick-stomach feeling.

“Um…do I need to worry about you

Spending inordinate amounts of time

With young women in short-shorts?”

“Good grief, Love.”  His expression

Doesn’t reassure me somehow.

“Well…I was young once, remember

And I fell for you because you were an

Older man…mature, charming, gorgeous, etc.

So I think you should be cautious about the

Students, clients, you agree to coach.”

His back is to me as he looks out the window

And says, “it’s the older, rich widows and

Divorcees who seem to hunt the coaches.”

“Oh…great.  I’d have to be wealthy, aside

From our joint assets, to compete?”

“Rita, I’m flattered that you think I’m  

Still a chick-magnet, but you also know

I’m a one-woman guy… Maybe you’d like

To be my first student?” he asks, his arms

Around my waist as he nuzzles my neck.

I have zero interest in golf…there are other

Sports he could coach me in, though…

What Shall We Do, Dear?

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/03/19/three-things-challenge-pl34/ Today’s prompt: guitar, forest, caviar

Doubt I’d care for caviar

Perhaps pizza, I’ve cash to spare

Forest get-away sounds too far…

Let’s do stay-cation, shall we dare?

You can play “come-hitherguitar

We’ll turn off phone, enjoy lovers’ lair.

Rumple Me…

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/03/15/your-daily-word-prompt-rumple-march-15-2019/

Rumple me

Quiet way you do

Till my hair’s mussed

And face flushed

Sighing so contentedly

Oh, rumple me

You like to, I know

Kindle now, love’s tingling glow

We’ll never be too old…be bold

Rumple me gently, like before

Rumple me, just a little bit more

Before we go to the grocery store…

Sweet Tooth Book Lover (3LineTales)

Three Line Tales, Week 163

~♥~

The husband’s not big on shopping, detests the mall, so I was surprised that he seemed raring to go.

I asked what “we” were so interested in…he just smiled enigmatically…which, after decades together, I still find irresistible.

A new shop had opened, the come-on was: “10 Books for a Buck”…and half-price, leftover Valentine candy

Delia could never pass by a table of books for sale without stopping—there were always treasures, many were bargains.

She remembered when she and a man had both reached for a worn copy of Wuthering Heights at the same time…neither of them letting go, smiling in brief mute tussle before he shrugged, and surrendered it chivalrously.

“It’s okay,” she’d said, offering it back to him, “it’s sad, depressing even”—to which he’d replied, “most great love stories are…but if you’ll let me buy you a coffee maybe we can write a hopeful one.”

Ageless Romance

Twittering Tales #125 – 26 February 2019

♥~♥~♥

Sweet piercing passion

Escape from ennui

Tossed pillows, wrinkled sheets waft

Raw perfume, afternoon romance

Did I say I love you?

Yes…you relish the moment your

Name becomes dawn-out keening

On my lips

We aged together

Not realizing we’re “old”…like

Teenagers soon craving “next time”.
