What’s The Fuss About?

IMPORTANT EDITORIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Stories for this blog are limited in length to 750 words. In recent weeks and months, however, many have strayed over that line – way over, in some cases.

So, to save my time and sanity, stories longer than 750 words will no longer be published.

Mission creep has also affected images lately. It is time consuming for me to prepare them for publishing so I am now imposing a limit of two photos per story.

I'm sure you understand. You can see all the rules and suggestions here and they are always available at the How to Submit link in the upper left corner of every page.

By Arlene Corwin

They love each other –
Yes, they do.
Perhaps more than I, you; and yet,
The sex drive has diminished.
Climaxes an effort.

Touted drive expounded
Western TV world around,
Do they miss it?
Not a bit.

They love each other;
Cuddle, touch;
They love each other very much.
Petting, playing - with
Erotic word and kiss sufficing
They don’t miss that pulse
That pounding thump,
That throbbing greatest of deceivers,
Hidden steerer not aware of
Goals and roads pretending to be real;
A blend of drive and tangilbility:
Status, goods and family:
What’s the fuss about?
It’s possible to live without it
And be happy, love’s vitality

[INVITATION: All elders, 50 and older, are welcome to submit stories for this blog. They can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, etc. Please read instructions for submitting.]

How very observant and cool.
I really feel it is the best of times, simple and real.
Great job of discernment.

Thanks Joanne!

Arlene - loved this - says it all- sorry to be late with comment - just catching up this week.

Oh my goodness, thank you for 'catching up'. You're much more efficient than I.

And thank you for loving it.
