Idyllic

Posted Aug 09 2011 2:47pm
the day should begin slowly

starting at dawn, then luxuriating in down and sateen for hours of slow waking

in each other’s arms

breaking our fasts with creamy yogurt and the rich greek honey

that tastes like the sun

a long bath in an old claw-footed tub

bubbles

then linens, perhaps a cashmere embrace on cool mornings

a kiss of perfume for decadence’ sake

{ via }

then a loyal companion and a long walk by the cliffside

no radios, no words; just wind and gulls

and the satisfying crunch of paws and sandals over ancient sand

{ via }

Lunch with dear friends

our usual restaurant, our usual waiter, our usual orders

drawn out for hours as we pause to laugh again and again

sharing honey-soaked pastry, sweet grapes, bitter coffee with earthy grounds

wine, and champagne

because who needs a reason to celebrate?

then a quiet corner

keeping company with Masefield, Tennyson, Keats and Johnson,

later daring to put my pen to paper; perhaps an attempt to feel closer to these idols

but mostly to capture the little pictures

my heart takes of everyday joys, and beloved places

an Atlantean sunset;

a courtyard grove twinkling with an abundance of candles below and stars above

dining with fruit trees, oleander and grape vines

a decadent meal from a  beloved recipe  or a trusted  guide

telling stories of the moments we spent apart

filling each other’s glasses with our favorite vintage from a friend’s small vineyard

and toasting another perfect day

I was recently  inspired  to write about a perfect day.

How could anybody resist such a delightful exercise?

Here is mine. I invite you to do the same ❤

do let me know if you do, so that I can enjoy your daydreams with you!
