14.02.22 Valentine Quadrille

Remembering an Afternoon Picnic Near Steyning

It smells of summer, he says.

We’re sitting at the edge of a field,
our feet soaking in a creek, and we’re

eating cheese and chutney sandwiches.
Drinking milky tea straight from a flask.

And I want this moment to last.
Beyond forever.

  1. Oh, god, not you n’all!


    1. Not in the least n’all. It’s for those who do. Our anniversary is in a few days, and we’ll just do a nice medium rare steak at home, but no gifts. There’s enough crappy stuff in this house to dust already.


  2. All we’re going to do is run a few errands. But that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. Forever.
    Nice work, Misky.


    1. We don’t do Valentine’s Day. Mr M says it’s a commercial nonsense. Our anniversary is in a few days though, and we’ll have a nice meal somewhere. No gifts though. We don’t need more stuff.


  3. Memory seems to still be greenish, and I love it.
